How do all of you controle (/interact with) your MagicMirror modules?



  • Hi there,

    I’m currently working on my MM. I have a 37" full HD tv that I will be using with the Pi 3B+.
    And I have added some modules to the standard mirror config.
    But I have found some modules that I can interact with. Like multpiple pages.
    This allows me/us to put modules on different pages much like on a smartphone.
    Standard it’s been set to rotate with a certain interval. but it can also be set to take a mouse click to take it to the next page.

    But I don’t want to put a small keyboard with trackpad next to the mirror.
    I’m looking for some idea’s!
    So… tell me: how do you interact with your Magic Mirror?



  • Could just use VNC to connect to it with your phone that way can change stuff from the sofa shut down reboot open web page, but the pi isn’t/hasn’t got real power but not bad it will do my mirror stuff so not bad



  • i think you could use voice to advance pages… see MMM-Voice and Hello-Lucy modules



  • @sdetweil yep you can but if I ever figured out to do pages I would have suggested that 🥺😢 I’ve got voice working but pages with Lucy I’m lost😭



  • @dazza120 if u look at the hello-lucy module file, you can see the comnands.

    Hello-lucy is really show and hide.

    So, show page two. Etc



  • @sdetweil yeah, I had it but couldn’t figure out how to do pages even tho I went through that read me file a couple of times 😂 I just couldn’t figure it out 😢

    You can integrate one or more button into your mirror frame to do all sorts of things. Wire them up to the GPIO and you can use MMM-Buttons, for example, to have them do things.

    My mirror has one buttons. When in powered off mode, the button starts up the Pi. When MagicMirror is running, a single press restarts MM, and a long press shuts the pi down. You could similarly have a button to cycle from one page to the next with each button press, or several buttons to do very specific things.

    Hi, I can help you get one module working with Hello Lucy. This should be enough for you to do others on your own. Sound good? Let me know.



  • I just have added Lucy to my “modules to add” list!😁 😁
    I’ll try to figure it out myself first (that’s the most fun) If not… @Mykle1 Is it okay to send you a message?



  • @mykle1 does it sound good it sounds great! The farthest that I got was install the three new files in the MMM-voice folder. The other stuff like adding the pages and modules blow my tiny mind. Help would be much appreciated
