    Plugs Switch On Inexplicably

    In a second home, for many years I have had a Z wave duplex plug that invariably turns on about 10 minutes after it is turned off. The logs never reveal anything seemingly useful except that the device value changed to on; as I have now begun watching it, they seem to switch on about 10 minutes after being turned off. They never switch off without an explicit command. I have not worried about this until recently when I installed a second plug in the same room and, inexplicably, It does the same thing. The home is 1000 miles away and I can’t look at the plugs, but I’m guessing that the older plug was an Intermatic and the newer plug is a new homeseer model. Any ideas?

    Can't suggest anything I'm afraid, but I can say I have had five Intermatic plugs installed for about 10 years. I've never had such an issue with any of them.
    Real courage is not securing your Wi-Fi network.

      Maybe some poltergeists are messing with you!

      When my Intermatic plugs started to fail, they would act "sticky", in that the would respond to the state change quite a while later than they should have.

      The fact the new plug is doing this would point to something in your configuration is causing the device to switch back. Intermatic's never reported back to HS when they changed state, but the new plug should. I would now re look at the log to see if that new plug is putting something into the log.

        Try reloading or upgrading the firmware if possible. I remember something similar when the WS100's came out. It would turn off (or on) shortly after it was turned on (or off). Haven't had any issues since.
