After a lot of SW / HW and mechanical study (including design … ) RaspiMirror was born!
It is positioned in the living room and provides us with general information on 3 pages moved by a gesture sensor.
The frame has a “Flintstone” style and we are planning more updates in the future.
It is able to detect presence with a PIR sensor and turn off the monitor when we are not in the living room.
Behind the frame there are LEDs that for now I control with Google Nest Audio which is connected to the RPI through bluetooth for audio.
The frame has been designed to allow you not to disassemble the monitor and extract the RPI in case of breakdowns or maintenance, as if it were a card.
The project is always evolving, especially the sensors part is not yet in the right place…but I’m working on it!
I used a 4gb RPI 4 with Raspbian Buster.
The modules I have installed (for now … ) are the following:
Here are some photos:
How I composed the pages (General Info, Sport and the last Astronomy):
