I’ve had this problem for a couple years now: I have an LED Christmas tree (Costco) with a built-in foot switch plugged into a Aeon Labs smart switch. Smartthings controls it fine when it comes to turning it off but it will not turn it back on. It turns the switch on just fine but the tree itself will not go back on unless I hit the foot switch. So I end up with a tree off but the star and things around it turned on.
The only exception is if I turn the aeon switch on within 15 seconds or so of when I turned it off–then the tree will light up. Otherwise, the tree requires me to manually hit the foot switch.
To clarify, the built in foot switch is not a paddle, just a large button. I don’t think there is a traditional “on/off”.
I’m assuming that the tree switch requires a constant draw of power and the Aeon switch is cutting it off which is resetting the foot switch but I’m just guessing.
Has anyone seen this before and can you think of any work arounds?
