I have a couple of CoRE rules for my garage that failed in a rather frightening way last night.
First off I have a relay hooked up to my garage door opener that’s setup as a virtual momentary switch in ST.
Between 12:59 and 1:01 am the virtual switch appears to have toggled back and forth about 50 times. Just went outside for the first time today and noticed that my garage door was half way open and appears to have been like that for 13 hours. Wow.
On top of that I have a radiant ceiling mounted space heater in the garage that’s hooked up to a z-wave switch. The switch is tied to a CoRE rule that turns the heat on with the temp is less than or equal to 32F in the garage and turn it off again at greater than 32F.
Anyway, I just found that the heater had been on since 5am as well. It seems that the rule triggered properly and turned the heat on, but the off tgrigger was missed.
WTF? I’ve become more and more trusting of ST lately but this is horrifying and calls the whole platform into question. It seems like a platform that allows something like this to ever happen isn’t actually stable and in fact can never be considered stable.
