We would like to set up our projector so that it switches off (standby) at a pre-set time every evening and restores itself (exit standby) likewise every morning - all without human intervention.
It will point at a website for content and so when restoring every morning it should point at the same website.
Does anyone know the best way of doing this?
Many thanks.

There are any number of commercial projectors which can be purchased which have an integrated scheduling system for powering on/off on a daily basis. This is not a common feature of residential projectors, just like your TV at home doesn't have that type of feature built in. Otherwise, you can use some type of control system and setup a schedule to power in on/off on a daily basis. I use Crestron and have setup schedules like this for clients who have had a similar need.

As far as a web browser, you would just connect a computer to the projector to do so. Something like a small NUC PC or similar and you just let it run all the time with the proper website setup and loaded and ready to go.
