How to turn on PS5 from the app

The PS App is the easiest way to turn on your PS5 remotely. First, make sure that both your console and smartphone are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. Then, open the app on your phone and log in with your PlayStation Network ID.

Once you’re logged in, tap on the “PS5” icon located at the bottom of your screen. You’ll see a few options appear; select “Power.” From here, you can choose to either put your PS5 into Rest Mode or turn it off completely.

If you select “Turn Off PS5,” a confirmation message will pop up asking if you’re sure about turning off the console. Tap on “Yes” to confirm and wait for a few seconds until it shuts down completely.

You can also use this feature even if you aren’t within range of Bluetooth connectivity by connecting directly through wifi settings in ‘Settings > System > Remote Play’ menu.

With just a few taps from anywhere within range of wifi connection, now turning on or off  your PS5 couldn’t be easier!

How to turn off PS5 from the app

Turning off your PS5 remotely via the app is just as easy as turning it on. Follow these simple steps to power down your console from anywhere:

1. Open the PS App on your device and sign in.
2. Tap on the “PS5” icon at the bottom of the screen to access your console’s control center.
3. Select “Power” from the list of options available.
4. Choose “Turn Off PS5” to shut down your console.

It’s important to note that if you have any unsaved progress or downloads still in progress, you’ll be prompted with a message asking if you want to enter Rest Mode instead of fully powering off your system.

If you select Rest Mode, your PS5 will continue running in a low-power state while allowing background downloads and updates to continue. To wake up from Rest Mode, simply press any button on your controller or use the app again to turn it back on.

With these simple steps, you can easily turn off your PS5 remotely no matter where you are!
