Smart Mirror glass and acrylic provides superior transparency to a standard two way mirror, allowing crisp text and graphics to be displayed through the mirror.

What is a Smart Mirror?

A smart mirror, also known as a magic mirror, consists of a transparent mirror and a screen behind the mirror. It shows important updates so the words appear to be floating on the reflection of the mirror. Updates can include the weather, calendar events, news, and social media notifications. To show that information, a display must go behind the mirror. This can be a TV, computer screen, or tablet. Framed and frameless styles are both popular, depending on the style of the living space.

Our specialty is offering very transparent glass and acrylic smart mirrors. They provide a crystal clear view of the text and graphics compared to a standard Glass Two Way Mirror.

For your convenience, we provide smart mirror apps free of charge for Raspberry Pi, Windows PC, and Android.

What is the Use of a Smart Mirror?

A Smart Mirror is the latest in high tech home decor. It is a custom mirror installation that is both a mirror and display. It takes data from the internet including: time, weather, stock reports, quotes and more to keep you up to date.

Buy Smart Mirror Samples

We offer samples of our product so you can see it in person in the comfort of your own home. The 5mm thickness is the latest and greatest so it will be extremely color neutral. The 3mm thickness has more of a warm tone to it. Tempering is available if needed – we do not recommend it unless it is being installed as a table, door, or you are worried about breakage. Beveling is also more of a decorative option if you already have beveled mirrors in your home.

Smart Mirror Raspberry Pi 3: How to Configure

Configuring MirrorMagic2 on a Raspberry Pi

  1. Update your OS
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade

     

  2. Install MagicMirror
curl -sL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/MichMich/MagicMirror/master/installers/raspberry.sh | bash

Copy config.js.sample to config.js

cp MagicMirror/config/config.js.sample MagicMirror/config/config.js

Edit config.js (see magicmirror.builders for configuration options)

nano MagicMirror/config/config.js
  • Turn off the screensaver
    edit ~/.config/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart:
sudo nano ~/.config/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart

Add the following lines:

@xset s noblank
@xset s off
@xset -dpms

Edit /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf:

sudo nano /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf

Add the following line below [SeatDefaults]

xserver-command=X -s 0 -dpms
  • Get Weather API Key at http://openweathermap.org/
  • Add API Code to your config file:
    sudo nano ~/MagicMirror/config/config.js
  • Start MagicMirror Automatically When Booting:
    Install PM2 using NPM:
sudo npm install -g pm2

Starting PM2 on Boot

To make sure PM2 can do it’s job when (re)booting your operating system, it needs to be started on boot. Luckily, PM2 has a handy helper for this.

pm2 startup

PM2 will now show you a command you have to execute.

To use PM2 in combination with MagicMirror, we need to make a simple shell script. Preferable, we put this script outside the MagicMirror folder to make sure it won’t give us any issues if we want to upgrade the mirror.

cd ~
nano mm.sh

Add the following lines:

cd ~/MagicMirror
DISPLAY=:0 npm start

Save and close, using the commands CTRL-O and CTRL-X. Now make sure the shell script is executable bij performing the following command:

chmod +x mm.sh

Start MagicMirror with the following command:

pm2 start mm.sh

 

Save your configuration:

pm2 save

Your MagicMirror will now start automatically on boot. If you make any changes, you can reload MagicMirror with the following command:

pm2 restart mm

Additional configuration instructions can be found at: www.magicmirror.builders

Monitors and TVs compatible with touch overlay

You can save time and frustration by choosing the correct display for your touch overlay. You’ll need a non-touch display with a flat bezel. The bezel should be black, not silver or white. Avoid curved screens, as the overlay won’t be able to lay flat on them. Televisions with too small a bezel (under 0.5″) may pose a problem when laying the overlay on them, as there is nothing to set it on.

Other Smart Mirror Capabilities and Features

Operating System

The Rasberry Pi and Intel ComputeStick are very popular for the smart mirror projects. Smart Mirror development for the Pi has enjoyed the most attention in the media, so most people are using it.

Windows 10 provides certain capabilities such hardware compatibility, expandability,  gaming, and emulators.

Android is a strong contender with its native support for Google Assistant speech recognition.

MangOS is a new Smart Mirror operating system with a lot of features.

Display Options

You can use a monitor, tablet, or LED TV as your display–the thinner and brighter, the better.

The ideal setup in terms of features and control for a small smart mirror is:

Samsung TabPro S or Galaxy Book – only 0.25″ thick, and allows gesture control, Cortana voice control, wireless mouse/keyboard/gamepad control. Add a touch capacitive film to the face of the glass for touch control. We recommend that you purchase the Samsung Multiport Adapter (EE-PW700BWEGUJ) to add 2 USB ports to your tablet.

Alternatively, if you want to do a large display, we recommend:

Samsung or LG ultra thin TV with PC or Raspberry Pi connected. Alternatively, add a ChromeCast and Google Assistant instead of the PC.

Adding Lighting

You can use LED tape around the back edges, and have it radiate around the edges. Alternatively, light fixtures can be installed behind the mirror to shine straight through it. You can add a frosted effect with patterned window film, acid etching, or sandblasting.

Input Devices

Logitech k830 keyboard for smart mirror

Using a logitech k830 wireless keyboard can make a smart mirror a lot easier to control

Signal strength is important, because the signal must usually pass through a TV/monitor screen and through the smart mirror glass. Bluetooth can be a nice feature, so that you don’t use an extra USB port for a USB keyboard receiver. We recommend the Logitech K830, which has a built in touchpad and offers both long range transmission using the included USB, as well as bluetooth if you don’t want to use the USB device. If you’re on a low budget, you we suggest a Logitech K400, which also has a great range, but a lower quality touchpad.

Infrared Remote

IR passes through the mirror so you can still operate a remote. If you are back painting the backside, be sure to leave an unpainted area to keep line-of-sight available to the sensor.

Steam

If you’re running Windows (recommended), MacOS, or Linux you can run Steam and any other games your OS supports. You’ll need a powerful CPU and graphics card to run many games, so a Microsoft Surface or Samsung TabPro S tablet is recommended if you’re looking for a thin device. Alternatively, use a Google ChromeCast to stream your PC to your smart mirror. Another advantage to running Windows is the vast array of keyboards, gamepads, and mice that provide additional control over your smart mirror.

More Smart Mirror Design Ideas

You can position cameras around the mirror from multiple angles. By setting up windows streaming the cameras, you can view yourself from all sides at once when looking at your reflection in the smart mirror.

Yes, install a webcam behind the mirror at eye level, so when you read text you’re making eye contact with the camera. Two small displays should be located behind the mirror, one on each side of the webcam. Combine the displays into one using the display settings in Windows.

If you have added touch capability to your smart mirror, we recommend cleaning your glass with an oleophobic coating to make sure you’re not smudging it with the oils on your fingers.

In Android, simply long tap on your desktop and add the widget. In Windows, install Rainmeter and follow their instructions to create widgets using a text editor. If you are running the widgets in your Chrome browser, you can install the Simple Black theme to make it look better.

You can turn the backround of websites to black by default using Dark ReaderSimple Black will change the browser itself to black. If you need to refresh content on the page, such as weather, sports scores, or stock reports, you can use the Chrome extension Super Auto Refresh.

How to Install a Smart Mirror

Mounting

Use standard mirror clips or a j-channel to mount a mirror flush to the wall.

Backpainting glass

You can paint the back (the non-mirror side–unless it’s beveled) with black spray paint such as Rust-Oleam High Heat or Ultra Cover 2x. Be sure to mask off the viewable area using a high quality blue painters tape such as Scotch Delicate Surface Masking Tape. Be sure to take careful measurements before painting to avoid mistakes, and you may consider purchasing a product sample from us for practice before painting the larger mirror.

Alternatively, you can use Gila Black Privacy Window Film, and be sure to also buy their application kit.

Mounting a TV

Assuming the mirror is being framed to connect it to the TV, you’ll want to use an ultra slim TV mount (0.4″ or less) behind it to keep it close to the wall. Alternatively, using an ultra thin tilting mount (0.75″ or less) will allow you to tilt it, connect cables or USB, then push it back against the wall when needed. Don’t forget to use anchors if you’re attaching it to plaster or drywall. A stud finder is recommended for mounting a TV wall mount, so you can drill into studs instead of drywall.

The Inland 05319 Ultra Slim Wall Mount is an excellent value at less than $20.

If the mirror is not being attached to the TV and it’s simply mounted in the wall, you can still use a wall mount within the wall, attached to a 2×4 board screwed into the studs.

Max Braun Smart MirrorSometime late last year I realized that I wanted my ordinary bathroom mirror to be more like the future we were promised in the movies. There doesn’t seem to be anyone selling the product I was looking for. The individual parts, however, were fairly easy to get. A number of people have done similar custom builds recently, but I had something different in mind. So I ordered myself a two-way mirror, a display panel and controller board, plus a bunch of components and arts & crafts supplies.

Frequently Asked Questions

If for some reason we have not answered your question above… check out this FAQ that can help you find what you need to know.

Ordering Questions

What should I use to clean my Smart Mirror?

One of the best features of our glass mirrors is that the mirror coating is extremely durable. You can clean it with standard glass cleaner and paper towels without worrying about scratches. The acrylic is a lot more prone to scratches, but no more so than regular acrylic. Novus 1 cleaner and Polish Mates are recommended to minimize abrasion and repair small scratches.

Can I drill holes in this material?

Yes, you can drill holes in non-tempered glass and acrylic. Please contact us for a price quote.

Can you cut different shapes?

We can cut glass to various sizes and shapes. We only sell acrylic in rectangles and squares, but is easy to cut or drill using standard tools. Please email us a drawing and we will quote it for you.

Which is better, glass or acrylic?

Glass is easy to clean, scratch resistant, and a flatter mirror. The acrylic, while susceptible to scratching, is lighter and safer. The acrylic is also bendy when you get above 24″ x 48″ in size.

Do you offer wholesale discounts?

Please email us with the size and quantity you’re looking for and we will send a price quote and vendor application form.

What size should I order the mirror?

The great thing about the Glass Smart Mirror is that it is highly reflective, so you can do any mirror size and use a smaller display behind the mirror and it will vanish completely. In our most popular framing instructional guides, we are cutting the mirror to be the same size as the overall size of the TV.

Which is better to use, a monitor or TV?

If you’re making a small smart mirror, a tablet is often the best choice because it is thin and smart mirror apps are easy to find now. For a large smart mirror, it’s generally better to use a TV, preferably a thin TV.  A TV typically has a flat backside and you can turn it on and off with a remote straight through the mirror.

Can the mirror be larger than the display?

Yes, if you’re not using a touch overlay. Simply back paint the backside with black paint everywhere except the TV and IR sensor. We recommend masking off the area with blue painters tape, and using a paint that works well on glass such as Black Rust-Oleum UltraCover 2x, which is available from your local Wal-Mart, Home Depot, Lowes, or Menards.

What are the advantages/disadvantages of tempering?

Tempered glass is heat-treated to increase the strength 10x. In addition, if tempered glass should break, it breaks into small shards which are less sharp than regular glass. The main disadvantage of tempered glass is that it causes distortion, similar to a fun-house mirror effect. For that reason, it’s generally not recommended unless going in a public installation.

How close of a match is it to a standard mirror?

The glass smart mirror has been formulated to match a standard mirror exactly when they are side by side. No longer do you need to order matching mirrors for the other mirrors in the room.

What is a magic mirror?

A magic mirror is another way of saying smart mirror. It is a screen behind a semi-transparent mirror. You power it with a computer, raspberry pi, or tablet to make it look like the text is floating on the face of the glass.
