Maybe I’m missing something very obvious, but I don’t see why “deep_sleep.allow” is not an option here… deep_sleep.prevent is working fine for the on_switch.on


Try this with adding your “” and “logger.log” in

        - deep_sleep.prevent: deep_sleep_1
        - 'scale_up:d=32 fill it in xyz'
        - logger.log: "Switch Turned On!"
        - deep_sleep.allow: deep_sleep_1
        - logger.log: "switch Turned Off!"

or you could try

- deep_sleep.enter: deep_sleep_1

Hi Blacky, I don’t quite follow you, I’m aware of the command “deep_sleep.enter” but that is exactly what I don’t want at that moment (for the board to go directly into sleep). I want it to go to sleep when it’s time for sleep. Hence the (documented) command “deep_sleep.allow” that resumes the timer set by the deep_sleep definition (else in the config).

On using the “then:”: The documentation says otherwise, apart from that the sleep.prevent (and sound) is working perfectly without the “then”…

ok I understand

does the command “deep_sleep.enter” work?

I know you don’t want to use it and I understand why, just seeing if that will work.

It works and puts the esp to sleep right after it’s boot up because the switch is off :man_facepalming:

I never though of it, because I have ESPHome as an add-on and everything is supposed to auto-update, but for some reason ESPHome did not!
