I installed al, but how i can make Google assistant always on? And why are you using alexa without making a video tutorial? I really want to use my smart mirror with an AI, but with this guide I don't have answers from Google Assistant
Thanks man, you helped me build my awesome mirror! I have a question for you though. When my mirror reboots I have to go in and execute the library demo for Google Assistant every time. is there away to have it activate on boot?
sir, i am very happy to see your project of smart mirror, since i am new to this e-world, I have a doubt that the picture is equel to the size of the monitor or to the extent of the size of the mirror? thanks in advance for your reply
Love the videos!! I’ve been working on mine for a while now and I’m pretty much done I just had a few questions. The weather location Id link doesn’t work anymore... are there any work arounds? Also the google assistant only works on the demo mode and not on boot up.?.?.?
hey, thank you so much, thanks to your video, i build my own magic mirror.
I wonder if I can config the compliment module with a "random" option to mix my compliments and not to always have the same order ...?
Thanks again !
Awesome build, do you have to add modules for the Google Voice kit in the config.js or for the Alexa in the .js file if so could you include that or add a file to summarize the process? Thanks .. Great Job!
Jack Plumridge I had to google to find a link to the file, downloaded it and opened with winzip, then opened the file in notepad and saved it. You can give me your city name if you want and I’ll look it up.
Thanks for these videos. They have been very useful.
Regarding the voice kit, can I use another usb microphone and speaker in its place? I have speakers already and getting a usb microphone would be cheaper than the voice kit. Is there anything I have to change in the set up process? Thanks.
What’s the smart mirror software called (The software that shows the date, time, weather, etc)? I’m designing and making a ‘smart gaming chair’ which has a display which shows what your mirror does but with more features. I’d like to know more programming my own software for it.
Hi great video thank you just a question. I'm having an issue I open my pi folder and I dont have a aiy folder to find the assistant library demo file. Is that a separate file to dl .
When i flashed the microcard and put it in the raspberry the taskbar disappeared..
I Used a Mac to flash the SD-card.
How do i fix it?
Did i get a new IP on the pi? cuz cant connect through VNC
Or how do your connect to the Pi without the SD-card in it?
Looks lite a awesome projekt:)
I'm gonna try to make my own very soon, working on some other projects currently, but I have a question, can I add a different module for the weather, say weatherbug, and also can I add module other than Spotify for the music, maybe YouTube red or poweramp, and last but not least can I add these without catching a charge for copyright infringement. And can u make any videos showing me how. Or can I just run apps from Google play on rasberri. Obviously I want it to b legal about the whole thing. Thanx in advance for ur response. Great video btw.
Thank You so much @Grensom !
I set up my MagicMirror thanks to you.
I also added a spotify module (MMM-nowPlayingSpotify), but it is too big for me, and I am not able to place it in the center, on the right side.... thanks for your help ! <3
I also haven't been able to figure out resizing. For the right center placement, it doesn't seem like there is an option to but it right or left in the center, just middle center. You could two or so modules top_right and the spotify module as the last top right (because they will stack) and that might leave it around the center right.
If appears that the placement options are
top_bar, top_left, top_center, top_right, upper_third, middle_center, lower_third, bottom_left, bottom_center, bottom_right, bottom_bar, fullscreen_above, and fullscreen_below.
That's according to github. I'm not sure if middle_right would work, because it's not in that list, but I guess it's worth a shot.
the link to the codes for each city results in a 404...can anyone help?
I figured it out, for all who were wondering, go to this link https://openweathermap.org/appid and scroll down to a link that says city's list IDs and click on it. It will have a download prompt and in the file are all of the codes
I’m unable to get the task bar. I’ve used lxpanel but wi-fi setup is not there and selecting the Check WiFi icon opens a terminal that tells me to select the icon in the upper right. I’ve saved dtoverlay=i2s-mapp and dtoverlay lines in config.txt not get no change on reboot. Also contrats, this is a great project.
Make sure if you decide to use VNC that you enable SSH also. VNC can be a security issue and if you use VNC but tunnel through SSH you can mitigate that some what by having the VNC only listen on localhost. Its fairly easy to do and you can connect from windows using Putty. Here is a quick how to that may be slight different for the PI https://community.time4vps.eu/discussion/120/how-to-connect-to-vnc-server-ussing-ssh-tunnel
After i boot my SD card using pi, the desktop opens but THE TASKBAR IS MISSING. I first tried through SSH using VNC, then i later plugged in HDMI and re intalled the OS in the SD card. Still no task bar, Audio hat, Wi Fi etc. Nothing... I used the "lxpanel" command to use the taskbar outside the screen, but even that doesn't allow config of anything. Please help.
Hey, another problem has arisen (sorry!), I've managed to set up Spotify module well, but I want to get the google assistant working as shown earlier. Whenever I try to set up my audio device it says that I need to connect an ALSA device (or USB or HAT), I've tried to force audio through the AUX cord with sudo nano /boot/config.txt but that hasn't helped, I don't even know what an ALSA is since I'm very new to this whole Pi thing
Hej, so I need A little help so i have a wakation house with no wifi soo im screwed ? or is there a way to get the wether and time and date ? i was thinking about a pandrive with internet conection but idk can you help me with that ?
Great tutorial! Just one problem, whenever I start up my raspberry pi it comes up as booting up the MagicMirror software, then goes straight to the home screen and doesn't boot up, I've already done pm2 start MagicMirror, HELP!
AHA!! Victory! Thank you very much for your help... although it did keep me up till 12am due to the shitty internet... Can't wait for your Spotify update video! (also if it's not too much trouble could you show how to switch from American holidays to, say English holidays, for example? Thanks)
Try running pm2 start MagicMirror and then running pm2 save. If that doesn’t work try going to my old software video and redownloading the pm2 software at the AutoBoot section of the video: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=pcmjht0Hqvw
I completely re-installed and during the installation I got:
Installing dependencies ...
npm ERR! Error while executing:
npm ERR! /usr/bin/git ls-remote -h -t ssh://[email protected]/patriksimek/vm2.git

This is without the apt-get update and apt-get upgrade.
The did the apt-get update and apt-get upgrade and then I installed Magic Mirror. It started MagicMirror. When I rebooted it did not. When I tried it manually with:
/MagicMirror$ pm2 start MagicMirror
I got the following. Is there something in apt-get update or apt-get ugrade that is breaking this?
Thanks in advance.
