Deep Sleep based on battery level

Interested in this as well, coming in as a new customer.

@davey_d - if the camera can't tell it's plugged in, it should still know current state of charge, right? Could some of the logic for staying on and connected run based on the battery level being 100%? If this wasn't plugged in, this would quickly stop being the case. Perhaps this would have to be something like >99% instead, not sure if it maintains exactly 100 while plugged in.

Hi @Blazgrim ,

Thanks for submitting this request. It certainly is an interesting idea. However, you might be underestimating just how much battery power the camera drains while it's online! So if this were implemented, it's possible that we'll end up with only a few days of battery life before Deep Sleep kicks in anyway.

That being said, I'll still forward to our dev team.

@Blazgrim Requested many times before, your suggestion on the battery level being more than a certain % for AC units is a unique, I believe, and is a good approach!  Hope the dev team agrees!
