We moved into our new house two weeks ago and I’ve been slowly setting up my “things” My first mission was to set up schedule for the outdoor lights. So, I changed out the switches for some GE Z waves, and set up a few routines. Everything seemed right with the world and the lights seemed to follow the schedule perfectly. However, over the last few days I’ve noticed the lights being on at random times. I had to run home at lunch today and the lights were on. I executed the routine and they all turned off. I noticed something similar yesterday. I double checked all of the routines and it all looks correct. I can’t think of anything that has changed over the last few days (i.e. equipment, network, etc.) other than adding a couple Hue bulbs that are totally unrelated to the outdoor lights. Below are the scenarios that I have set up. Let me know if I’m missing something or there is a better way to do this.
Outdoor lights ON (Morning) - Lights on 1 hour before sunrise
Outdoor lights OFF (Morning) - Lights off 30 minutes after sunrise
Outdoor lights ON (Night) - Lights on 30 minutes before sunset
Outdoor lights OFF (Night) - Lights off at 11:00pm
Like I said, all worked well for a while. The lights were on when I left for work, were off when I came home, turned on a little later and off at 11:00. It just seems like it’s gotten scrambled in the last couple days. I did update my location last night, which I hadn’t done before. But, I don’t really see how that could cause this.
