Lowest power while flipping wifi (and ble) active every 5 seconds?


#1

Howdy Folks,

I’ve got a RedBear and I’ve been working on a project that needs to reconnect to wifi every 5 seconds or so but I do not need any of the peripherals (Read: power suckers) running. It would be only a small line of data (which, I agree, is better suited to MQTT but thats not an option). Is there a tried and true method to such an endeavor? I’ve got a project with a fairly tight energy budget. Is it even possible to silence the bells and mute the whistles on this thing? Thanks for any insight you Folks can provide!

Respectfully,
Mike
