MMM-MirrorMirrorOnTheWall

This is a module for the MagicMirror. It uses AWS IoT Device Gateway to receive commands from Alexa, then displays text/images/video on the Magic Mirror, and turn on/off Magic Mirror Modules according to the commands.

You have to setup Alexa, and install the MirrorMirrorOnTheWall Alexa Skill before using this module. Please follow the instructions in there before continuing here.

AWS IoT Credentials

You should have the AWS IoT Device credentials from setting up the above Alexa skill. Copy the certs folder from there and paste it inside this Magic Mirror Module folder. Next, open the MirrorMirror.js in this folder, and again, replace the keyPath, certPath, and caPath to your own.

Dependencies

Configuration

The entry in config.js can look like the following. (NOTE: You only have to add the variables to config if want to change its standard value.)

{
    module: 'MMM-MirrorMirrorOnTheWall',
    position: "middle_center",
    config: {}
}

Usage

If you have setup the complementary Alexa skill as instructed, you should be able to invoke it by saying "Alexa, start On The Wall", or "Mirror Mirror On The Wall" if you changed your wake word to "Mirror Mirror". Next you can say any of the following commands to trigger different actions on the Magic Mirror.

Turn on/off Magic Mirror Modules

To turn on/off a Magic Mirror Module, it has to be installed and configured in the main project already. You also have to map its official module name to a transcribable spoken name in ModuleNames.json. For example, "MMM-Globe" maps to "globe", "currentweather" maps to "current weather".

To turn on a Magic Mirror Module, say:

  • "start {newsfeed}"
  • "start {current weather}"
  • "turn on {compliments}"
  • "open {smile test}"

To turn off a Magic Mirror Module, say:

  • "close {newsfeed}"
  • "close {current weather}"
  • "turn off {compliments}"
  • "finish {smile test}"

Note: To clear the text/images/video displayed by this module, you can simply turn this module off.

To turn on all Magic Mirror Module, say:

  • "open all"
  • "open all modules"
  • "open every module"
  • "open each module"
  • "show all modules"
  • "show me all modules"
  • "show every module"
  • "show each module"
  • "turn on all"
  • "turn on all modules"
  • "turn on every module"
  • "turn on each module"
  • "start all"
  • "start all modules"
  • "start every module"
  • "start each module"

To turn off all Magic Mirror Module, say:

  • "close all"
  • "close all modules"
  • "close every module"
  • "close each module"
  • "hide all"
  • "hide all modules"
  • "hide every module"
  • "hide each module"
  • "turn off all"
  • "turn off all modules"
  • "turn off every module"
  • "turn off each module"
You can’t perform that action at this time.
