How can I tell if Deep Sleep is working?

dglasser 2 years ago updated 2 years ago 2

I've enabled Deep Sleep between 1 AM and 5 AM when my car is parked at home. However, I get an email from TeslaFi every morning after 5 AM saying, "[Car Name] Did Not Go To Sleep" and the TeslaFi logs show the 1 AM - 5 AM time as part of a longer Idle period. Is this because TeslaFi cannot detect that the car is asleep or do I have my sleep settings configured incorrectly?

Deep sleep really needs to be re-named.  All it really does is just poll the car for data every 30 minutes or whatever you set it to and preventing the normal 1 minute polling that TeslaFi normally does. 


You can tell if your car is actually sleeping by going into raw data page and see or look for sleep sessions in the main index page.


If your car is not sleeping you can read this help section:  My car is not sleeping!


As long as you are willing to turn off always connected and enable energy savings all you really need is TeslaFi sleep mode and the rest of them off.  The other modes were put in place for users that didn't wish to change those settings.


Hope that helps.


Thanks,


James

James, thanks for the response. Here is my follow-up question: If I choose not to enable the car's sleep settings (i.e. I want Always Connected to be on), does using TeslaFi increase the vampire drain, or is the amount of overnight power usage by the car unaffected by TeslaFi? If the former, does the "deep sleep" setting affect this?


Thanks.
