    Two different protection mechanisms. Two different purposes. Most of the time if GFCI's start "popping" for no reason, they are going bad. In construction equipment, they go bad all the time...
    Yeah, that was my point, too; thanks. Don't just keep resetting a GFCI, troubleshoot and solve the root cause.

      Yea, my issue turned out to be an extension cord on my deck that kept getting wet when it rained. I guess these work as designed. I find it odd that my bathroom and deck share the same GFI.

        That's common. My back patio is on my hall bathroom GFCI. Same thing at the apartments that I work at. Any outlet that is on the load side of the GFCI is protected even if its a regular outlet.

          It started as a cost saving move, probably until copper went out of sight.

            The device you recommended works perfectly. I tripped the main. I instantly received a text that the device

              Good. It was surprising that they said HomeSeer wouldn’t get the report. Glad it works. It could be useful for a number of people who want power failure notifications.

                Very cool. I got several on the way...

                This 800 series supports LR. Has anyone played with that?
