Thanks Quickfix. Point taken about power consumption.
I'm thinking of leaving the device either off or in deep sleep mode, only waking up on a keypress. There will be a delay between the first keypress and a command being sent, but I can live with that. It could even do something like flash an LED until wifi is up.
I'm going to try getting an ESP-01 into a casing like this... https://uk.rs-online.com/web/p/remote-control-fobs/4510668
Years ago I experimented with deep sleep, waking with RST and/or EN, etc. butt not in great depth. If anybody can suggest an optimal arrangement for low power consumption asleep with reasonably fast wake-up, I would love to hear about it!
