What is meant by the term "CAPI" in my log I have lines saying by/from: CAPI Control Handler.

Thanks for the reply but it doesn't really tell we what it is so I can correct the problem. It continues to turn on my basement lights through out the day.

What CAPI is a common method for HS to control devices, plugins themselves handling the actual communication with the devices.

Why you find your lights turning on/off is another matter, at least it is happening inside HS so you should be able to find out what is responsible for it.

Are you able to post some of your log, immediately before the light on/off does it show anything that might say event trigger? Is there any pattern to the on/off cycle, exactly every hour?

Another worthwhile thing is to go into the events page, using the drop down at the top select the light and then see what events control that device. Check the triggers for these events, see the last run times of the events and see whether they match the lights on/off times.
