Waking my ESP32 from wifi?


I am looking to piggyback a ESP32 on top of a battery powered remote control, in order to trigger a device from HomeAssistant.
As the ESP32 will be powered by the remote control battery, I would like to save power and keep ESP32 in sleep mode and wake it up via Wifi only when necessary to activate the remote control (such as using a Wake On Lan magic packet sent to the ESP32).
Is there a way to achieve this using ESPhome deep sleep features ?

Thanks in advance

No that is not possible. Wifi is shut down in deep sleep.
