Save Money with AutoIdle for Heroku

Automatically put your your staging and review apps to sleep

Add it to your Heroku app


Why does AutoIdle exist?

Having numerous staging and preview apps running 24/7 can rack up costs at the end of the month, but chances are you only need a few running at a time. That’s why we made AutoIdle: to automatically turn off unnecessary apps and save you money.

How does it work?

When an app is inactive for 30 minutes, AutoIdle puts it to sleep. If the app later receives an HTTP request, the add-on automatically reactivates the app with the same dyno count and active processes present before the app went to sleep.

How to install?

Simply click “Install” to add AutoIdle to your app. That’s it! AutoIdle will then immediately put your inactive apps to sleep after 30 minutes of inactivity. No additional configuration needed.

How much money can I save?

Our customers average 92% idle time on their apps.
