MMM-page-indicator: No marked indicator when changing pages with remote control

  • Hi everone,

    I am using the remote control modul to control my mirror.
    Everything works fine except one little thing. I use the MMM-pages and MMM-page-idicator modules.
    On mirror start-up I can see the two page indicators: a white one for the opened page and a black one for the other “closed” page. The two icons are as default.
    I change the pages using the command: http://ip:8080/remote?action=NOTIFICATION& notification=PAGE_CHANGED&payload=%221%22. It works fine but however the two page indicators turn to black. So I can´t see the selected page anymore.

    Do you have an idea?
    Thanks a lot.

  • Hi there!

    Did you ever get a solution to your issue? I’m curious as to how you set up your remote control to send notifications to change your pages because I am actually trying to do the same thing. I’m very new to RPi and MM so I’m learning as I go.

    I have both Pages and Remote Control (RC) installed and now I’m trying to create a button on the RC website that I access from my iPhone so that when pressed will load the desired page. Any push in the right direction would be appreciated.


  • Hi,

    yes, I have found a solution. The developer helped me out.
    It is very simple. Just keep the “” away from the page number. (Somehow it is %22 in my post above.)
    Just open a browser and enter

    http://ip:8080/remote?action=NOTIFICATION& notification=PAGE_CHANGED&payload=1

    Please remove the space between NOTIFICATION& and notification. The text is written wrong if I put it together.

    0 is page one. 1 page two and so on.

    As an alternative you can try

    http://ip:8080/remote?action=NOTIFICATION& notification=PAGE_DECREMENT


    I use these commands to control the mirror using my smart home gesture control.
    Thats why I had no need to modify the remote control module.

    Hope it helps you anyway.
    In my case, it works like a charm.
