Local vs cloud for identical devices

Trying to understand the following: I have two identical zigbee lightbulbs, both used in the same automation (and only this automation). Within the IDE, one shows local execution while the other shows cloud.
What would cause this difference? And can I update the cloud one to execute locally so it’s more reliable?

Same device handler for both?

Yes, exactly the same (at least as far as I can tell.) Hence the mystery.

Brand and model of the bulbs?

Sylvania (Osram)

  • zigbeeNodeType: ROUTER
  • firmwareManufacturerCode: 4364
  • application: 01
  • endpointId: 03
  • firmwareImageType: 93
  • manufacturer: OSRAM
  • model: LIGHTIFY A19 ON/OFF/DIM 10 Year

OK I think I solved this: there was an errant device handler with the same name that had slipped into my device types. This one was causing the cloud execution.
