Wake up ATV4 from sleep without shortcuts

Cupertino, April 22, 2020

Trying to create a HomeKit automation to play music at a certain time of day, the ATV will be asleep, but seeing that Siri can handle it (waking up the ATV and playing music on it) I assumed it would be a walk in the park for HomeKit. .

No success yet. Is this possible at all without shortcuts? Can I wake up my Apple TV with a HomeKit automation?

Something I've noticed is that when the ATV is asleep, I can't wake it up by tapping the tile in the Home app, is it standard behavior? All I get is the "No Answer" message as seen in the picture.


Thanks 🙂

Everything is updated and I have a subscription to music, this sleepy thing through Home Automations got me.
