Hi. Been a minimalist hub user (v2 hub, current firmware from this Thursday, US Rev E) for a bit under 18 months now. MOSTLY happy until last 2 weeks or so. Only things we really have are a back door lock and a switched outlet (device in the title) to turn on the espresso machine in the morning. My wife works stockroom for retail so … early a.m. shift, and having the machine prewarmed when she gets to the kitchen saves her 15 min of sleep.
Problem is recently it’s begun failing to activate (on or off, variously). At the beginning (maybe last 2 weeks) the issue was intermittent, now it seems complete. I’m just using the “turn on at a certain time” routine feature, and ‘turn off at a certain time’ later. The activity is triggering and sending me the push notification, but the switched outlet itself is not activating.
This did start just before the latest firmware update, so it’s not (just) that. I did turn off power a couple times a week or so ago to do some wiring (remodeling a different room in the house and replacing outlets); not sure if that could be a triggering event.
I’ve excluded, removed, and re-paired the outlet. Right after doing that I can manually trigger a remote on or off action with the phone app on the device’s page, and/or see the device state if I hit the physical button on the outlet in the app. But then attempting to set up a new ‘turn on at a certain time’ routine for a few minutes later…I get the push notification that the command was sent, but the switch is not triggering via the “logic”.
After it tries but fails, if I use the phone app (which correctly still shows it as ‘off’) to turn on, it will respond again.
It does seem like the device state (showing as ‘on’ or ‘off’ on the app) is much quicker to respond if I physically turn it on or off at the outlet, than it is to for example go from showing on to showing off if I hit the button on the app screen to turn off. Like it is ‘monitoring’ it just fine, but slow to re-monitor after sending a remote command?
I do have device health on at the app…not sure that makes any difference or helps at all. No idea where to look for logging (the graph api page maybe?)
TL;DR: Works if I toggle myself at the app. Not via the Routines time logic. Any ideas??
