Near my wits end trying to debug the occasional random turn-on of a simulated (type = virtual switch) switch, so any suggestions would be appreciated. The latest occurrence info from the IDE log is below, there are only “Source=DEVICE” type of events shown in the log when I select the “all” option.
Is there any way to determine it was NOT caused by another device/program/Alexa event?
I see no other devices in my system corresponding to the reported “deviceID” or “ID” in the log entry.
While I have both Webcore pistons and Alexa routines that can turn on this particular virtual switch, none of them seem to have been active at the time of the event (based on their respective logs/history).
I’ve read other posts regarding random turn on events for devices (what a system;-), but don’t think I’ve ever seen reports of virtual devices going bump in the night.
(Longer version/background): This virtual switch was an attempt to w/a the random turn-on of a physical switch, allowing me to separate WC piston turn-on stuff from other types of turn-on for that switch. Since it still was happening I recently replaced the switch with an entirely different device (thinking the switch itself was the cause), but I still experienced the random on event. This led me to look closer at the logs after which I noticed the very first “on” event triggered the virtual switch (which in turn caused the physical switch to turn-on courtesy of a piston I had created to sync the virtual and physical switch states). So at this point I do not think the physical switch is the root of the problem, but suspect the virtual switch… how that can get turned on is beyond me (rechecked the pistons that touch it and logs showed they were not involved). Sorry if this is confusing, but its only informational background.
