i love it almost as much as i do the theater , i have the lights setup so they all come on when the theater system is turned on so by the time we get down stars the projector is warm, equipment is on ,
rear shade closes via a somfy motor, once i play the movie the lights dim giving time to sit and get comfy then they shut down completely, if i pause a movie from any remote the automation software is watching the status of the Dune player so when it sees the movie has paused it brings up the perimeter lights up to 20% so your not walking in the dark to get another drink or restroom break. Then when movie ends the software is watching status of movie so when it gets to 97% which is where most movies start running the credits the lights come up again just like at the end of movie in a theater.
you maybe able to tell i sorta like this stuff
