27" Mirror with selfmade frame
My Mirror Project is already finished since a couple months, but i had no “time” to post it here.
First, thank you very much @MichMich and @j.e.f.f for this amazing Idea and the modules i can use for this.
It’s a pleasure to stand up in the morning, looking on the screen to see the traffic, calender and weather information in this esthetic manner
The screen is always off until the radard sensor detects motion in front of the display.
I used Douglas wood because its cheap and has intresting visual structure ^^
product cost Mirror Glass ~149x36cm (Glas Trösch, Switzerland) 66€ Douglas wood for the frame (OBI) 25€ 27" Philips monitor spare - 0€ Raspberry Pi 3 incl. powersupply ~ 57€ Radar sensor (RCWL0516) 8€ DHT22 Temp & Hum Sensor (Seeed 101020019) 15€ Screws and little stuff ~ 10€ Total ~ 181€
- MMM-PIR-Sensor replaced with MM-Display-Controller
thats an os-deamon based solutions, because PIR sensor doesn’t work anymore since MM 2.4 and OpenGL…
Regards and thanks for feedback
Very nice build! What are the transmission values for your mirror? Have the Mirropane Chrome Spy with 8% and I am not too happy about it. The modules aren’t easy to read when it’s bright. Even in the night when I just turn on the light.
Would interest me as well.
Also, your mirror seems very cheap! (and that in SWITZERLAND :-))
Its 12% and 4mm thick
They have 1, 12, 20, 30 and 40%
Thank you very much. I saw they are also in Germany. I will call them up tomorrow and ask for prices for the mirror and for shipping. If it’s really that cheap I will order one with 12% and with 20% transmission and see which one fits best.
How far does your radar detector detect through the glass?
Excellent work. That looks great!
Its in the middle behind the thick wood and it detects at least 4m. (would be more if there would be no wood, just the glass
Due to the position across from my wardrobe thats fine but if the range is too faar for detection it would be possible to reduce it with a resistor.
@kruemel ty for the info
great job, looks great full height!
