Errors log console and deep sleep

Hello! Just two questions - I am using some home automation to shut off the power to the printers after they finish printing (I check do they consume about 7-10W for longer period of time and then shut them down from AC outlet).

1. Is there a better way to do this? When running 10 printers every idle hour is about 100W so it is something to consider. Is there any option to put those printers to deepsleep or anything by Prusa Link or firmware?

2. Because of my automation it sometimes shut down the printers that had an error like "Mintemp bed error" and when I get back to my printers I can't be 100% sure what was the cause and what was the information because it is off. Does Prusa Link log those kind of errors and will I be able to check then later on?

  • You can control the temperature of the hotend over API... 
  • Octoprint has plugin for this 
  • There is plugin for Home Assistant for octoprint, probably there will be some plugin for prusa connect API...

Connect logs stuff that happens over the duration of a print.

The diversity of these events should hopefully increase over time.

But I am not aware of an api to query connect for the state of a printer, but I know you can do that with the local publically docummented API. it's in Prusa-Link-Web on github

1. What kind of home automation?

2. What kind of printers?

I know that if you have Mini you can query it directly, I have some examples if you need.
