Motion Detection requires Johnny-five.io as well as Raspi-io.
make sure you're within the smart-mirror folder.
from the smart-mirror folder run the following command.
npm install johnny-five && npm install raspi-io
Use the Motion Settings of the ConfigUI to configure and enable the motion detection after installing dependencies.
Default Value if not included in config.js
Identify GPIO input Pin connected to output pin of the PIR device or other device used to detect motion
enable motion detection
(optional!) LED (color of your choice)
(optional!) Resistor (based on draw of LED)
Motion detection works with AutoTimer Settings. Using Johnny-Five's motion API the PIR device is connected to a PIN on the Raspberry Pi. Suggested PIN is GPIO 26 as illustrated in figure 1 and figure 2 above. When the
motionstart event is triggered the
auto-sleep timer is stopped and will remain stopped until the
motionend event is triggered. When the
motionend event is triggered the
auto-sleep timer is started and set to the
config.autoTimer.autoSleep interval set in configUI.
