Toggle sleep/on/off/night mode via API. Great value for home automations!

I would love to be able to make an API call to turn off/dim/sleep my Tidbyt via an API call.

There is so much value in having this ability.
Personally, I foresee an automation with Homebridge, to turn off/sleep the Tidbyt when everyone has left the home, and to turn it on when someone is at home.

Or even better, only turn on the Tidbyt when motion has been detected in the room it is in.

Because the display is an OLED matrix with limited lifetime, it would be nice to be able to automatically turn it on and off based on presence at home/room to preserve the lifetime of the display.

Yes, I agree! An off option would be valuable!
