1. A movable bather system with a moving-bather imminent motion notification, the system comprising:

  • a movable bather operator connected to control movement of a movable barrier between a first position and a second position;

    the movable barrier operator configured to receive a first command from a transmitter in response to a first user input at the transmitter, wherein the first command comprises a first signal configured to instruct the movable barrier operator to trigger closing the movable barrier and a second signal configured to instruct the movable barrier operator regarding triggering operation of the moving-barrier imminent motion notification in combination with the movement of the movable bather;

    the movable barrier operator configured to determine whether the second signal instructs the movable barrier operator to trigger operation of the moving-barrier imminent motion notification in combination with the closing of the movable barrier;

    the movable barrier operator configured to effect the closing of the movable barrier in combination with operating the moving-barrier imminent motion notification in response to determining that the second signal instructs the movable barrier operator to trigger operation of the moving-barrier imminent motion notification in combination with the closing of the movable barrier;

    the movable barrier operator configured to receive a second command to effect the closing of the movable barrier without operating the moving-barrier imminent motion notification in response to receipt of the second command.
