There is never an end to the devices that can be made smarter and smarter with the help of the adequate technology. There are a lot of smart display devices but mirrors provide an interactive environment while displaying these information’s. This paper presents the design and the development of a Smart mirror using raspberry pi with some additional features which provides face recognition for security and smart unlocking process. The contents are displayed on an LED monitor who is enclosed in a wooden frame and covered with a sheet of reflective one way mirror. The mirror provides basic detail like time, news details, weather of a city and display current message. All the computing is done with the help of a raspberry pi.
