Custom mirror software?

Answer:

It depends. Do you have the code to the alarm system? If you do, then you can use it for a while. As far as disconnecting the telephone line from the alarm system in the other comment, do not do this. Reason is that once your system detects that there is a communication failure, it will possibly beep from time to time, and once this happens you cannot make it stop without either powering down the system or connecting it to an alarm company for monitoring. If you do not have the code to the alarm system, then you can contact the installing company to see if you can possibly reset the code with an installer code. Depending on your system, ADT may/may not be able to help reset it over the phone. If you do have the code, then you can use the system however long it will work for. But just advising you, eventually it is possible that it might one day detect a communication failure, and it might make those trouble beeps. Personally, I have an ADT system and have been using it for years unmonitored. Good luck! :)
Some years ago, saw advertising for a manufacturer making real wool fleece mattress pads. They are relatively thick (nearly two inches), so your body sinks into them a little, plus they tend to retain body heat. (They were initally designed for elderly patients to help prevent bedsores, but have the added advantage of keeping them very warm.) You might also look at socks designed for hunters that use batteries to heat the socks. Keeping your extremities warm in bed will go a long way to making you comfortable. Finally, hot air rises, so if you have a way to better circulate the air in your room, you will get some of the benefit of that warm air. This might mean reversing the direction on a ceiling fan so that it draws air from the ceiling and directs it down, or a circulating fan elsewhere in the room (don't know if this is a problem with your no electricity issue, but both things would help.)
