I’m new here and have an Pi 2B hooked up to the 7" pi touchscreen. Somehow I lost my wifi dongel and face a choise: by a new dongel and use the pi 2B for smart mirror or keep that and by the new Pi 3B+ with build-in wifi and bluetooth. So I don’t need the dongel and can use that money for the new Pi.
BUT…(and this has been asked her before but there were no yes or no answers… only links to the Pi 3B) will the smartmirror software work on the Pi 3B+???
I’ve read somewere that you need other software for the pi 3B+.
I have it running on the new 3 B+. Works great. I used the install instructions from the wiki.
Now that’s what I wanted to hear!
Going to order the pi3B+ tomorrow here in the Netherlands.
I’ve got some WIKI reading to do I guess!
I followed these two:
Thanks for the links.
I recieved my 3B+ today and installed Rasbian, updated it and then installed the MagicMirror software via the installer (not manual).
And it works!!!
Only thing is the wifi… it’s not on in rasbian. So need to sort that out.
Also need to figure out how to keep the screen from going black. Perhaps it’s the screensaver. Need to read up on that.
And then… The fun part starts: adding modules!
Love to add the facial recognition and voice commands to open and close modules per account/person.
So…like I said: got some reading to do.
The second link has instructions for disabling the screensaver.
Indeed, I’ve read that in there.
Still in the reading part.
