This is why you don't use z-wave frequencies out of their approved zones

Here’s a humorous story about low frequency radio interference. A lot of people import SmartThings hubs to countries where the z-wave frequency isn’t approved for use. Despite warnings about interference, they carry on. Here’s a funny story about why its important to only use approved frequencies for an area. Luckily in this case it wasn’t a first responder frequency or something else important that was being blocked. @JDRoberts may find this humorous.

fun story. I wish they said what the transmitting power level was.

315MHz is frequency, not power (power is measured in watts or dBm).

Must have been a huge battery to have effected an entire neighbourhood like that AND transmit continually.

I call cover up lol… it’s Aliens in the nearby NASA lab.
