My bathroom mirror has a light inside of it. The bulb went and so I opened up the mirror to replace the it. Once opened I realised there were a huge amount of empty space and I thought about adding a bluetooth speaker set up inside.
It took me about 2 days to complete the project but in practice it took me about 2 weeks as I had to order and wait for parts.
These are the parts I used:
- single sided strip board. here
- bluetooth receiver here
- 3w amplifier here
- enclosure here
- 5v power supply here
- 2 pin PCB Mount Screw Terminal Block Connector here
- 4 pin PCB Mount Screw Terminal Block Connector here
- general wires
- bathroom mirror (with enough space in the void to house the parts)
- cable ties
- double sizes sticky pads
- sugru here
I used these tools:
- hole saw
- various drill bits
- metal file
- soldering iron
- screw drivers
First thing I decided to do was to change the string pull switch to a contactless touch sensor switch. This was very easy I purchased this.
So the first thing I needed to do was wire up the bluetooth and 3w amplifier. I decided to use project board for the circuit and surface mount terminal connectors for the power supply connection and the speaker wire connectors.
