I’ve got a GE outdoor plug exhibiting odd behavior and I’m unsuccessful in troubleshooting thus far. Basically whats happening is, if I turn it on/off through the app, the actual plug turns on/off, but it seems like smartthings doesn’t recognize that its being toggled. It controls some lights behind some artificial hedge pieces so for the rest of this post I’ll refer to the “hedge lights.”
I have a program set via webcore that turns this plug (and a bunch of other plugs and switches) on at sunset and off at dawn. The rest of the program works perfectly but this one never does. Another outdoor outlet that works is even further away from the hub than the one in question so it doesn’t seem to be a range issue (that and the fact that when I click the button in the app it turns on and off instantly, no delay at all.)
When I look at the log of what happened, webcore says it didn’t turn the lights on because they were already on…however, they were not already on. The app thinks they’re on, however, which is the problem (webcore is running fine.)
When I go into the device and look at “recently” I only see off commands from the webcore program. I don’t see any of the clicks from the app (which actually turn the hedge lights on and off)
I’ve unpaired and repaired the device (it pairs just fine) and even swapped it with another plug. Tomorrow I’ll try moving it to another location, but I don’t understand why it would be a range issue as its about 5 feet away from another plug that works just fine (with line of sight) and 5 feet away on the other side from a z-wave light switch that also works just fine.
This is driving me crazy because everything else is working and I’ve got all sorts of programs running and about 75 device on the network that all work great.
Anyone else experience something like this?
Note I’ve also run a repair z-wave network and no errors.
