Photo Board incl. MagicMirror
Hi all, until now I used a whiteboard in the kitchen for my personal overview for the events of the next week on a high level.
Based on this planning I created my Info/Photo Panel with my favorite functionalities:
• automatic/sync private calendar’s overview (my calendar for the next week, other calendars of a month base)
• my printed pictures for my happiness (child’s, holidays, funny days…)
• every time child’s drawing on it
• weather forecast for the week
• Information about current alarm Situation of the fire stations in my area
• a magnetic table to use with chalk and non-permanent bordmarker
- calendar (ics and ICloud)
- compliments (time and weather based)
- MMM-ping (basic monitoring of remote server)
- MMM-PIR-Sensor (currently not working)
Out of the box:
shutdown/reboot/power on python script
That is the result:
Fantastic idea, combining the mirror with the magnetic panel, pictures, chalk, etc. Well done!
nice work. How did you realize the alarm from your fire brigade (seen the alarm message on top)? I’m also a volonteer fireman. We get our alarms via a swissphone pager BOS S (digital) and can also get the text message send to a sms to the smartphone. I’m looking for an option, to get the alarm message also to the MM. Do you have an idea?
Thanks in advance Mike
@garbleflux Hi, in my case it was very easy, I use the public RSS feed from our local fire department in combination with the neewsfeed module:
Hi! Thank you for your hint. We use a differente alarmsoftware, so I have to look
for the options. With RSS it’s a pretty good idea.
