I’ll try to get my setup up-to-date in the upcoming weeks. Afterwards I could happily give your beta a test run

RE: Proximity sensor "switch" behind mirror?
I recently replaced the PIR sensor of my mirror with this microwave radar sensor:
I mounted behind the mirror glass and it works like a charm. It’s compatible with @Paviros PIR module / can be used as drop in replacement fir the PIR sensor.

RE: Dark Material UI
@sero well, the reason there is mostly white on black is because the mirror glass usually eats up all the small changes in dark colors.
In my case with very little light transmission your idea wouldn’t show at all,
High contrast interfaces usually gives the best smartmirror appearence at the moment.
Thanks for your reply @broberg!

Dark Material UI
I was wondering if anyone besides me would like to see a UI that is oriented towards a dark Material UI theme. I´m thinking of dark boxes (–> cards) with subtle shadows instead of the currently used “white (or colored) text on black”.
Since my explanation is probably not very vivid, here is a dribble of a weather card:
I´m still waiting for my mirror glass, but in my imagination this looks quite nice
What do you think? Maybe we can create a “Dark Material UI Theme” as an alternative to the current UI.
I´m certainly not a CSS ninja, but I´d definitely help to make this happen
