Dear Team,
Please I need help in where to insert “DeepSleep” in my code monitoring temperature and humidity. Below is my code, please anyone with idea on where is proper to insert “DeepSleep” should please guide me:

Hi @Johnson_Isaac,

Typically, you want your device to wake up, read the sensor, send a message to Losant, then sleep for a specified period.

If you look at the example from the blog you were following:

The deep sleep happens last in the loop function. Essentially, after we done all the steps I mentioned above. You’d likely want yours to be there too.
