Notifications will not arrive until Phone is unlocked

Hey there,

I’ve been facing a problem for some time now. Notifications from HA (using the notify service) will not be received on my phones until I unlock them. The companion app has all rights (autostart, run in background, no power savings etc.) and all notification categories are set to high priority and allowed to be displayed on the lock screen.

Receiving the notifications when the phone is locked is important to me because I use those to change settings. For example I enable and disable high precision GPS tracking, turn on or off the BLE transmitter and receive actionable notification which also need to have an effect after the given timeout.

So what are possible reasons for this. The problem exists on both phones I use with HA.

Thank you in advance!

sounds like you are not using ttl and priority to wake the device, more details here:
