Smart switch and smart light


Hey all,
i have the Philips Xiaomi Yeelight ceiling light.
on top of that i have a Sonoff smart wall switch.
each time i turn off the switch the system is loosing connectivity with the light (as it should - no power …)
the thing is that my log file keeps alerting me about it. and each time i restart HassIO it takes longer since HassIO is trying to connect to the device.

is there anything i can do to tell HassIO that the device is not mandatory or something similar?



not to answer the question but to ask another that might solve the problem…

why have a smart switch powering a smart light? why not just power a dumb light with the smart switch?
