As a smart mirror seller; whether you are a company or an individual, we know all the customer service issues that can come up with selling a smart mirror based on raspberry pi and open source software. SD card corruption, software configuration issues, and forcing users to connect keyboards and a mouse for wifi passwords, setup, configuration, and network changes. This can drive customers crazy, it is not a simple setup for sure. Especially since the world is App based.
Why don’t you make life easier for your customers by using Mango Display, a smart mirror platform that runs on an Amazon Fire TV stick. Simply use an Amazon Fire TV stick instead of the Raspberry Pi. Easy for customers, no software headaches for you, more sales for you.
No configuration needed from your side. Your users will simply setup the Fire TV using the remote, download the Mango Display App from the amazon app store, and configure the widgets and layout themselves. Thats it!
Cost to you? zero. in fact you will save on costs. A Raspberry Pi with SD card, case, power supply, heatsink, etc. is more expensive than a Fire TV stick.
In addition your users can also use the Alexa app to schedule the mirror display or even use a Motion Sensor.
How do we benefit? While most basic widgets used in a smart mirror are free like clock, weather, news and quotes we do have a paid subscription for additional widgets. Your customers can decide if they want to subscribe to it, and you can add it to your marketing accordingly. Here is our current Pricing plans.
You don’t need to request any special permission to use our platform, simply use the words ‘Works with Mango Display’ in your marketing, and provide customers with the three simple steps below.
