This Smart Mirror build is aimed at being low cost, and made 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 you enclose a monitor in a wooden frame, and attach the monitor to your mirror. Finally, you get the software running on a raspberry pi, and put it behind the monitor.
This project also includes a bonus Alexa installation. Your smart mirror will be great without this, but it’s nice to have a voice assistant in your mirror to ask tough questions or control home automation.
