Mine has a power button that you lightly touch and the monitor turns on or off (see pic https://goo.gl/photos/2rnRtovAJpCvTZXp7 ) This means that the button doesn’t have an on or off position. Would this mean that I’d need to get the Pi to send a short pulse to turn the monitor on or off or would it be continuous power to turn it on and no power to put into standby?
Did you manage to avoid having a splash screen when it enters or leaves standby? (See video https://goo.gl/photos/QnGRPccautfSnBCt8 ). This is really important to me!
One idea I thought of is to find an internal wire that provides power to the screen and install a relay there as well. Then run the script as follows;
- When movement detected activate power relay 1
- Wait 5s for splash screen to finish
- Activate power relay 2 which allows power to the screen
Good work on the mirror by the way,
