Particle.variable and Sleep Modes


I did a bit of searching but couldn’t find a definitive answer…

How to Particle variables deal with devices going into Sleep mode? Do they have a TTL? I have a Mesh system up and running and I’d like my endpoints to sleep to conserve battery, I’m just not sure what happens to the variable values.

Since a variable query is active, and sleepy devices can’t respond to that, the variable won’t be available. You could push the data to the always-on-gateway before going to sleep, and query that though?


Of course! Why didn’t I think of that… :smile: Thanks!
