My bathroom smart mirror.



  • Hi!

    First of all I would like to thanks to @goldjunge_chriz for the opportunity to acquire a 2-way mirror. It is impressive, much better than the acrylic sheet. And, I’d like to thanks to @MichMich too for the Magic Mirror software.

    Here I leave some pictures of the montage that I was doing this last summer, at leisure. I have been quite happy with the result. I hope you like it!

    I am going to try not to extend myself too much with the explanations, if someone has any doubts, I will kindly answer him.


    The bathroom cabinet consists of 2 pieces: a frame and a door:

    To correct these errors in the cut with the electric saw, I have put some plastic corners and black silicone. This is the result:

    The mirror was glued with black silicone too

    … and the TV speakers. I designed a simple piece in 3D to put them inside (they are available in thingiverse in case someone is interested).

    I have made a pdf with the connection scheme of all the electronic part that you can see here (I’ve had to convert to png previously to put it here):

    0_1537988735274_esquema_instalacion.png

    And here is the python3 script to make it all works:

    #!/usr/bin/python3
    # Para que funcione correctamente, hay que instalar los siguientes
    # paquetes:   sudo apt install python3 python3-rpi.gpio
    
    # Script que activa la pantalla y el EL wire cuando detecta movimiento
    # a través del sensor de presencia PIR
    
    import RPi.GPIO as GPIO
    import time
    import os
    
    GPIO.setmode(GPIO.BCM)
    GPIO.setup(22, GPIO.IN)						# SALIDA DEL PIR (PIR OUTPUT)
    GPIO.setup(23, GPIO.OUT)					# EL WIRE (CABLE ELECTROLUMINISCENTE)
    GPIO.setwarnings(False)
    
    time.sleep(120)
    os.system('vcgencmd display_power 0')
    
    while True:
        if (GPIO.input(22) == 1):		                # SI DETECTA PRESENCIA (IF MOTION IS DETECTED)
            os.system('ogg123 -qz /media/pi/MUSICA/ &')	# ACTIVA LA MÚSICA (TURN MUSIC ON)
            os.system('vcgencmd display_power 1')	        # ACTIVA HDMI --> ACTIVA PANTALLA (TURN ON SCREEN)
            GPIO.output(23, GPIO.HIGH)			# ENCIENDE EL ELWIRE (TURN ON EL WIRE)
            time.sleep(600)					# "DUERME" 10 MINUTOS (SLEEP 10 MINUTES)
            os.system('vcgencmd display_power 0')		# APAGA SALIDA HDMI --> APAGA PANTALLA (TURN OFF SCREEN)
            GPIO.output(23, GPIO.LOW)			# APAGA EL WIRE (TURN OFF EL WIRE)
            os.system('sudo pkill ogg123')			# MATA PROCESO MÚSICA (TURN OFF MUSIC)
    

    And you can watch a video here:

    I hope you like it as much as I do!!

    So far I have not managed to make the music stop when the push button is pressed, but I will end up getting it …
