HDMI-CEC Support in Affordable Projectors: A Guide for Holiday Lighting Enthusiasts
As the holiday season approaches, many enthusiasts turn to projectors to create dazzling light displays that transform their homes into winter wonderlands. For those who utilize Raspberry Pis or other devices to automate their lighting setups, incorporating HDMI-CEC support into their projector selection can significantly enhance the convenience and control of their holiday decorations.
HDMI-CEC, also known as Consumer Electronics Control, is a protocol that allows various devices connected via HDMI to communicate and control each other. This means that a single device, such as a Raspberry Pi, can be used to power on and off multiple projectors, simplifying the process of managing your holiday lighting display.
While HDMI-CEC is not as prevalent in budget projectors as it is in higher-end models, there are still several affordable options that support this feature. Here’s a list of sub-$100 projectors that offer HDMI-CEC compatibility:
Wemax Luna 4K Pro: This ultra-short-throw projector boasts a native 4K resolution and supports HDMI-CEC, making it a versatile choice for both holiday lighting and home theater applications.

BenQ TH535: This budget-friendly projector offers a 1080p resolution and features HDMI-CEC for seamless control of your holiday lighting display.
These projectors, along with others that support HDMI-CEC, provide holiday lighting enthusiasts with affordable and convenient options for automating their festive displays. By leveraging the power of HDMI-CEC, you can easily turn your projectors on and off, synchronizing them with your other holiday lights to create a synchronized and dazzling spectacle.
Remember, when selecting a projector for your holiday lighting needs, consider factors such as image quality, brightness, resolution, and, of course, HDMI-CEC compatibility. With careful planning and the right equipment, you can transform your home into a captivating winter wonderland that will amaze and delight your guests.
