In this project we will see how to make a low cost smart mirror from readily available parts.

It all relies on the use of a regular picture frame, and mirrored window film to turn the glass into a two way mirror.  Then enclose a monitor in the frame and hide it behind the mirrored glass.

As far as the software is concerned, we use a Raspberry Pi (the MagicMirror program you have to upload is available). It is also possible to install Alexa in order to implement a voice assistant who can control home automation. Alexa and MagicMirror will then run simultaneously on the same Raspberry Pi (at about 25-50% of the CPU).
