Last week there was an electrical event in my neighborhood, it spiked through my house and jumped from one Zwave device to another completely blowing them out, several burned. This event effected many homes in my subdivision, mine was the only one with a home automation system. I was told by the sub association president that a high tension line fell and fed the high voltage into our power grid. I thought at first the neutral line had become live, but the plug in zwave appliance devices also burned. Beyond my Zwave devices, nothing except for my cooktop was damaged, including my smart TV which was turned on while the event occurred.
Has anyone else experienced something like this? I’m wondering if it’s possible that the RF connection between the Zwave devices helped this charge move and destroy the Zwave grid?
