That may not be foolproof, but if you find a device that can take a setting like that through its firmware that should (probably) prevent random ST cloud problems from flipping the switch on when you didn’t intend it to be.

Assuming you’re talking about a z-wave device, if there’s no setting in the device handler, you could use the z-wave tweaker device handler. You just temporarily change your switch device to use that handler in the IDE, then go to the device’s settings in the mobile app, change the relevant parameter (which should be listed in the device’s manual), save, and then change back to the normal device handler in the IDE.

Edit: even with the use case you describe, keep in mind that the “off” command might fail to send occasionally because of some issue with your mesh, the hub, ST cloud, etc.
