Some devices have to be available and responsive at all times. If the energy supply allows it, leave the device running and connected at all times.
You have a device with an inexhaustible energy supply and need to have it available and responsive at all times.
Energy Savings: Saving energy is not the top priority in your situation.
Reachability: The device has to be online and reachable all the time.
Reactivity: The device has to react to commands instantly.
Functionality: All of the device’s functionality has to be available all the time.
Let the device be always on so that it is permanently connected to the network and in a state where it can receive and execute commands as soon as they arrive.
