Wants: I would like this mirror to have the ability to display weather, important news and reminders. Possibly also to record activities (breaking & entering) locally on the card and possibly for me to view the surroundings over the net

My assumption is that I would need a decent camera, 1080p or higher w/fisheye lens that would pick up movement when walking to the mirror. Two sided glass. A working monitor; which I have. Some decent 2x4's which I have & of course a board. I have a budget of roughly $150.

Can you point me in the right direction for hardware needs and a way to find/learn the coding?

Alexa isn't a must, but it would be nice.
