Smart home theatre ideas for your movie nights
Start the film and relax! With smart devices, your movie night will be a complete success.
Connected smart home theatre
Grab the popcorn and get cozy on the sofa with your loved ones – we’ll do the rest. While you’re enjoying sweet or salty treats (or both), your connected home theater is running at full throttle.
Cinema for your smart home
It smells like popcorn, it’s slowly getting cozy and dark, and the opening credits start while you snuggle into your seat. What would cinema be without the right atmosphere? The lighting, the sound, and some delicious popcorn – that’s what makes a movie night complete. Thanks to smart devices, this can now also be done at home, turning a movie night into a cinema experience:
Before the movie starts in the theater, the lights in the cinema auditorium are dimmed from bright to dark. At home, have the blinds lowered while your room lights slowly dim and the smart TV starts up. And if you are equipped accordingly, the ambient lighting will also activate and make the experience even more complete!
What would cinema be without the right sound? Even before the movie starts, your speakers play light background music. And from your comfortable seat on the sofa, you can combine the sound with the right lighting mood, so that the cinema sound starts as soon as the lights dim.
The movie magic isn’t complete until you have the right snacks. To make sure your popcorn doesn’t get eaten before the movie even starts, you can control your Cookit and TV at the proper time from the comfort of your sofa, with just one click in your app. That way, your popcorn will be ready exactly when it should be.
One advantage of the home theater is that you can pause the movie without bothering anyone. To ensure that the ambience is not interrupted, though, background music, a brighter lighting mood, and even a fresh snack from the oven can make the time more pleasant, while you wait for the movie to resume. And we can also prevent unwanted interruptions: just let your smart home turn off the doorbell, informing you instead via a discreet notification on your smartphone if someone is at the door. And just like that, you’ve got pure movie magic – without interruptions.
Reach for the stars
When the sun is slowly setting, the temperatures are still mild, and the crickets are chirping in the distance, the movie night can easily be moved outside. Combine the movie experience with warm summer evenings – we take care of the lawn, the weather forecast, and the lighting mood.
The perfect atmosphere for your summer cinema experience: as soon as the sun sets, the smart garden lighting comes on. Of course, only as bright as is compatible with the screen –the perfect ambience for magical open-air evenings.
Houston, we don’t have a problem
In the theater, when the movie is over, our gaze usually falls on the popcorn-strewn floor. Luckily, the cleaners are waiting in the wings at home, too.
To ensure that the end credits are also a success, your vacuum-cleaning robot will clean up the crumbs as soon as the lights come back up.
Relax at the end of the evening and don’t worry about a thing: the connected dishwasher selects the right wash program for you, so you save electricity and water at the same time.
