Been toying with a smart mirror using a 24 inch monitor. Has face recognition and a bunch of other widgets. You can get a touch screen frame
What’s holding me back, is that smartTiles requires a login in every so often. Kinda breaks my quick check requirement, and not having a keyboard attached makes it impossible to login. Been planning on making a local webserver based off of HADashboard (which is close to smarttiles, but runs locally)
Here is what it looks like with just the basic widgets and using smarttiles (not in a mirror yet)
The Nucleus intercom system may be an option in the future.
