A few months ago I bought a SmartThings Motion Sensor and had it control a GE Link bulb that’s in a lamp.
After a while (a few weeks?) I came downstairs one morning expecting the light to turn on–but it had never turned off. It was on overnight, and it could not be turned off via the SmartThings app directly.
I reset the bulb (doing the turn-on turn-off 5 times thing), and I think I could control it OK on its own, but once I tried reconnecting it to respond to the motion sensor, it quickly became “stuck” again.
Thinking maybe it was a bum bulb, a few weeks ago I bought another GE Link bulb, added it to the network, and connected it to the motion sensor.
This morning… same deal. Light was on all night, and it no longer responded to turning it off directly with the app.
Questions at this point include:
- Has anyone else seen this?
- Is there any way to get these two working together?
- Should I stop doing this and messing up bulbs?
- Any ideas WHY this would be happening?
Thanks for any and all help, and apologies if I’ve posted to the wrong section–first post.
