Turn on/off display remotely via ssh
Apologies if this isn’t the right forum for this.
Looking to have a magic mirror triggered via other inputs with my home automation system Indigo.
Ideally I’d like to be able to remotely turn on/off the display through a script. Is there a simple way I can do that?
I assume the MM is running on a raspberry pi. The display does not go into low power mode but this may be what you are looking for…
xset -display :0 dpms force off
You may have to install xset.
I have triggers through HomeAssistant (home automation).
I had the same problem but I am using home assistant. I ended up installing MMM remote. And created a switch for on and off parsing theese urls. Maybe that would work for you as well?
