Automation when Apple TV is on / awake

Cupertino, October 24, 2020

I would like to create a homekit automation that will be triggered when Apple TV is on / awake.

I played with the automation and shortcut application. When I use the if block, when I select any other homekit accessory I can check if it is on or off, but when I select Apple TV it doesn't seem to work at all.

The ultimate goal
1. Turn on the Apple TV via the supplied Apple TV remote control

2. One of my smart sockets in the homekit is activated
