Do you have a Chromecast, Apple TV or other media player that you can connect to Home Assistant? Then this blueprint offers the ultimate cinema experience for you.

You will need the following things:

  • A scene for when your TV isn’t playing
  • A scene for when your TV does play something
  • A media player connected to Home Assistant

Optionally, you can specify a light and motion sensor to control all the lighting within the room your tv is in. If you do not specify a light sensor, the sun is used to determine the light level in the room. If you do not specify a motion sensor, the scenes will only switch when the media player changes status.

Copy and paste the following link into the blueprint section of your Home Assistant:
