My Full-Length Mirror with a "Smart" Top Half
Built with a 32" TV positioned in the top half of the mirror, finished with a barn-board frame.
I made use of Xscreesaver to make this a piece of digital art on the wall when it’s not being used!
Full build here:
Does the PIR sensor work well without the dome? I wish I knew you could do that before I drilled a big ugly hole in my frame.
@Chiumanfu yeah it works well. Once I figured out that I had the sensitivity and timeout options flipped, that is!!
As you would imagine, the sensor is very directional – you need to be standing in front of the mirror for it be triggered, but it will pick up motion across its path well across the room.
If the screen is fully off, the PIR sensor picks up motion early enough that the TV has a chance to come fully on by the time you walk up to the mirror.
