PIR Magic Mirror Motion Sensor

I’ve added a PIR (passive infrared) motion detector to my magic mirror.  Now the monitor turns off after 5 minutes if no one is in the kitchen.

Super simple to do.

I brought an Aukru HC-SR501 sensor from Amazon.

This excellent YouTube video explains how the sensor works and how to check it’s operational.  HC-SR501 PIR Motion Detector – With Arduino & Raspberry Pi

This post gets the sensor set up using Python and Shell script.  How to: Install a PIR motion sensor on your Raspberry Pi Magic Mirror.
