Problem: Control single plug using multiple buttons

I’m trying to control a single Zigbee plug with three different buttons scattered around the same room. However, I’ve noticed that when I move from one button to another, the button press on the next button is sometimes only registered when pushing that button twice.

For example, I use button 1 to turn on the smart plug. When I then go over to button 2 and try to turn the plug back off again, the first button press isn’t registered. In such cases I have to push button 2 a second time before the smart plug is turn off properly again.

Any idea why this is happening?

Depending on the smartapp/automation set up to control buttons, do you have the option of “toggle” vs. on/off?
