    MMM v2.1.3

    already done:
    git clone …
    npm install …
    chmod on user and map structures

    All i get is my normal MM screen and every other modul works fine.
    Testing on Motion-test.js shows me the correct status, and turns HDMI monitor off and on.

    also tested the MMM-MotionCensor but the same problem. the monitor is not going to sleep.

  • Have you tested the PIR independently of the mirror ? (ie, does it work the way you want it to ?). This is a good guide to setting them up and testing they work.

    I had issues with the same MM module, and chose to use this solution instead, which works perfectly and has the added advantage of working regardless of whether MM is running.

  • Bob thnx,

    It’s working fine now.
    just iinstalled it like a service and added the PIR.PY a litle bit just for my personal settings and my HDMI screen turns off afther 5 minutes.

    Next thing i want to do is to include it as a module in he MMM Remote Control app so i can show or hide the status and countdown time on un mobile or screen.

    tHNx again Bob.

  • @hmoed No problem, glad you got it working.
