Title: How to power off all sensors in Wemos D1 Mini deep sleep mode?
Post by: timlee on Aug 28, 2017, 09:59 am
Hi All,

I'm now working on my weekend project using Wemos D1 Mini with 2 sensors pulse sensor and mpu6050 for the battery power saving reason I using deep sleep mode for wemos and successfully make it done, but I found that those 2 sensors still consuming power and its LED still on. Can someone tell me how to make the sensors off in deep sleep mode?

Simply by powering them off, so removing the power from them. The MPU 6050 does not consume much power so you can power it directly from a digital pin. For the other sensor you have to do that lookup yourself as you didn't provide a link or at least specify it exactly.
