Magic mirror Pi3 + Windows 7 1.60m x 0.60m



  • Hello,

    First of all, I want to thank all the contributors of this forum without whom I could not have created my mirror.

    It has been about three months since I attended this forum silently to finally be able to present you my work.

    I wanted to make a mirror to put it in my living room above a buffet.

    The buffet being very long, it was necessary to create a mirror imposing enough to dress the wall.

    So I left on dimensions of 1.60 meters by 0.60 meter.

    This allowed me to go through a 32-inch screen.

    having a home containing a lot of home automation (blinds, lights, heating, cameras, …) I wanted to be able to order some of my equipment thanks to the mirror.

    So I started to install magic mirror on a raspberry pi 3. I started to have problems with the display of the cameras on magic mirror. Even with a 32-inch screen, there is a moment when all the modules you want to put have no place to display.

    So, as I had room, I told myself that I could add a separate 19-inch screen for the cameras, on a Windows computer that I used to PVR.

    so I insert in the mirror:

    1 raspberry 3 for magic mirror
    1 32-inch screen for the magic mirror

    1 acer veriton under windows 7 for cameras
    1 19-inch screen for cameras.

    I started by mounting the frame. I wanted the mirror glass to be directly glued to the chassis with a 5 cm deflection to hide all the switches.

    In addition, it was necessary that the 5 cm of the mirror is opaque because I wanted to put an LED strip for the light. so I had a special primer for car windshields.

    For the mirror, I’m lucky to have a friend who works in a factory. So I could have a 6mm laminated glass spy mirror of 1.60 * 0.60 at a very good price.

    I stuck the mirror on the chassis with windshield glue.
     
    after all these explanations, place some photos:

    I added to magic mirror the OPENJARVIS solution for voice control.

    I plugged a rf 433 module on the ft and I can ask the mirror to turn on the lights, to open the shutters.

    With jarvis I can have the weather, the radio, the way … to the voice. I think it’s a good complement for magic mirror.

    I installed the following modules:

    [Remote-Control] Shutdown, Configure and Update your MagicMirror
    Calendar Monthly
    Calendar
    My commute (x3)
    Soccer live score
    Soccer
    World
    Clock
    Suncalc
    Wunderground,
    Newsfeed,
    Snow

    I failed to install the following modules:

    MMM-NOAA - Another Weather Module (each indicates standby but no info appears)
    MMM-Jarvis-Voice-Control (the microphone does not appear on the magic mirror interface)

    Here…

    I hope I have not been too long in the presentation.

    Hoping that in my turn I can help forum members as you have helped me a lot.

    PS: Sorry for the translation … Google translate is my friend;)

    In fact, I glued the ice on the wooden frame using glue for automobile windshields.

    For fixing to the wall, it is fixed thanks to specific fixing brackets.

  • This. Is. Awesome!

    My jaw still hurts from when it fell to the ground of amazement 😮



  • Wow this is looking awesome, one of the best I have seen so far.



  • WOW very nice job!!! I don’t recall seeing you asking questions in the NOAA weather module forum…

    In fact, I did not ask any questions on the subject. I tried by myself by reading all the posts.

    However, I do not admit to being defeated … I was going to try to make it work again today.
    I’ll go over the right topic to share the results.

    Regards,
