we are using a Pro2 at work for a few month now. It is a quite nice experience to use the printer.
One feature we are missing is a function to switch off the LED-strips inside the build area.
While the camera is nice for remote controlling the printer, its quality isn't that great anyway, the further back area of the printing surface can hardly be seen as there are to many reflections from the LED-lights..
A Button to switch of the LED-Strips would be a nice thing, maybe even via remote control.
Please post your suggestions for hardware features

Wouldn't take much with something like an adjustable DC-DC buck converter to allow adjustment via a pot. All a buck converter does is allow you to control the DC output voltage from what the input is down to zero volts. You can get them on Amazon one ebay pretty cheap. One could take it a step further and just install a LED controller to adjust the brightness of the LED's. adafuit.com has a lot of LED control stuff. If your comfortable with Arduino it's pretty simple to use them to control LED's with an app even. If the Pro2 was still Marlin firmware you can use it to control LED's. Not sure if anyone has hacked the new Pro2 firmware as to what it is and make mods to it yet.
