  • Hey guys could someone help me what am i doing wrong…?
    i keep getting this error:

    MagicMirror will not quit, but it might be a good idea to check why this happened. Maybe no internet connection?
    If you think this really is an issue, please open an issue on GitHub: https://github.com/MichMich/MagicMirror/issues
    Launching application.
    

    This is my config.js file:

        {
                              module: 'MMM-PIR-Sensor',
                              config: {
                                sensorPIN: 22,
                                powerSaving: true,
                            relayOnState: 1
                      }
                    },
    


  • Facing the same issue… The sensor itself works. Tested with a python script…
    As soon as I implement the config for the sensor the screen stays black (via VNC) and the MM is not reachable via browser.

    By the way, I have connected my GPIO-data-cable to PIN wiringPi 7. The description says that BCM numbering should be used, so I used 4 instead of 7 in the config. Is that correct?

  • You are correct about the BCM pin numbering beck0r, it is not the same as the actual pin number (the BCM pin numbering origins from the processor pins if I am correct).

    What I advise is to forget about this module and use https://github.com/cowboysdude/Pir-Sensor instead.
    I made some slight changes to this myself, because it was still not turning on the monitor correctly.

    RUN apt-get update && apt-get install -y libraspberrypi-bin and replace the scripts from the above link as follows: monitor_on.sh contains only vcgencmd display_power 1 and monitor_off.sh only the line vcgencmd display_power 0. This solved my problem for every display I used so far, being HDMI, VGA and DVI displays.



  • Thank’s for your answer. As you have already seen I was able to solve it nealry like cowboysdude did



  • @envedede

    How do i need to:

    chmod all files: From a terminal window in your root directory:

    sudo chmod +x pir.py

    sudo chmod +x monitor_off.sh

    sudo chmod +x monitor_on.sh

    Editing pir.py

    could u explain, i`m master noob with raspberry :P



  • @Desertswing
    I found out how to, i forgot to place the files in root :)
    But my screen isen`t going off yet but the light bulb i attached goed on and off when motion detected??
