    hai upb

    Hello! I Have had upb installed for years in my kitchen. 5 load switches in a closet and then remotes in three locations. I have two that have gone rogue. One is a two rocker switch for a fan and light that is strictly remote. One is a 5 switch module with a rocker and 4 tabs. One tab is a load switch and all others are remotes. There are two other modules that mimic this, except that the load portion is remote. The two in question either don't work at all, or cross over to each other. In exploring further, I have used upstart and tested the switches. Signal strength excellent and no noise. I even started disconnecting all other switches one at a time to no help. I found the circuit that the switch was on, and unplugged everything to no help. I tried replacing the module with one I know works to no help. Now here's the weird part. Just by accident I tried the switch as I went up to bed.. it worked. More testing and both switches work great from 8pm to 6am. 6am then they quit. I have tried multiple days. What is this?

    Not a definitive answer, but some thoughts. I have had UPB for a long time. My spares have only gathered dust as there has never been a failure. I have used HAI, PCS and SA for the PIM/SIM in the early days when I was developing the UPB software. Most endpoints in my case are SA.

    1. Is there software monitoring that keeps the switches inactive from 8pm to 6am.
    2. UPB does well in noisy environments, but is there equipment or power company action during the subject times. The influencing force need not be on the same circuit. A pool filter/pump may be a candidate where it’s electrical footprint may have recently changed.
    3. Is there a UPS battery or solar power bank that is “turned on” while the sun is present. Batteries make great filters for digital waveforms.

      thanks. 1. I have an old x10 activehome. It only runs the pool but I might disconnect it and check
      2. no, pool only runs from 11-12
      3. no
