"Save energy by automating your 3D-printer" by Andreas Spiess

Really nice video guide on augmenting OctoPrint with ESPHome, MQTT and NodeRED for some automated energy saving setup, by Andreas Spiess ("the guy with the Swiss accent").


Nice, I've watched a few of his videos like the one comparing ESPHome and Tasmota. I've done something similar with my power related plugins. I should look into forking my Tasmota plugin for ESPHome.


I've got a much simpler solution:

relay between the PSU & printer controlled by Pi / PSU Control plugin.
Pi is "always on", but that's only ~5W -> https://www.pidramble.com/wiki/benchmarks/power-consumption
