Why are you not using a small and cheap pir sensor?

RE: MMM-PIR-SENSOR not working
why are you using a MM module?
This is not related to the mirror itself. Use @cowboysdude (how funny is that in this context ;) ) script.
You can find it in his github respository. By the way, this dude creates really cool stuff, so its worth to have a closer look to it.
If your PIR is cabled well, it should work easily.
RE: MMM-xiaomi - Temperature and Humidity from your smarthome
I have now also the Yeelight Bulbs (Color) but i guess its not working to show the status in the mirror?
or has @Albert2002 managed to get it working?
I also only get a short id beginning with 56 or something wit the miio tool.
I needed to install the Yeelight App in order to get the stuff discovered by the Amazon Echo . With the Mi Home app it was working to stear them, but not recognized in the Amazon App (took me a while to figure that out)
RE: Heat Problem
again. check the Pi.
I am pretty sure, that its not getting to hot, because of undervoltage of the powersupply.
I guess there is a stuck service or something, which causes the pi to work on its limit.
Disable VNC if not used, disable Bluetooth if not used, and so on. Delete unneccesary stuff like Wolfram, python games…and so on.
(google for cleaning up the pi)
i had something happening like this, after installing some additional stuff on the mirror-pi. and it was not erased clearly after removing. Same issue. After research and manually erasing the services and files, all was good again.
RE: Heat Problem
is it the power supply which is very hot, or is it the Pi?
Is it the power supply, replace it like Mykle1 said. Thats way to hot.
If its the pi, install
sudo apt-get install htop
and run it in the console with a simple "htop"
you should see now the load of the pi and see which apps maybe take the power of the cpus, which cause the pi to get so hot. Tehn you can take further action.
RE: Possible sytax error in my config.js file?
Since there isn’t yet so much “customized” stuff in there, i would suggest, you start again with the dummy file provided in the /config folder.
Then add the first module, if this is working then, add the second… and so on.
Otherwise you will go crazy.
