I am a new ST user. The devices I am having issues with are a:
- GE dimmer switch (in my dining room controlling the overhead light)
- GE outdoor switch (in my backyard controlling outside lights)
I have my Good Bye! routine set to turn OFF the dimmer switch, and the I’m Home! routine set to turn ON the dimmer switch.
I originally noticed odd behavior where my backyard lights were on when they shouldn’t be. I ran the routines and noticed that the backyard lights were being turned on and off at the same time as the dimmer – except the backyard lights are NOT added to that routine.
I then went and removed control of the backyard lights from every application and routine. Yet whenever I manually toggle the dimmer switch using the ST app, the backyard lights also turn on/off! (yet with a slight delay). EDIT: originally I thought the backyard lights did not turn on if I used the hardwired switch to turn on the dimmer – I was incorrect, as it does follow the behavior of the switch.
I logged into my graph.api.smartthings and confirmed the two devices have separate IDs (02 and 03 – I told you I’m a new user!). I checked the log and confirmed that they are both getting an APP_COMMAND, with the outdoor switch being sent about a tenth of a second later.
I have run a Z-Wave repair with no effect.
Any ideas on why this is happening? I have NOT fully removed/re-added the outdoor switch to the system yet – I was hoping to see if there is another solution first, but can try that if there is none. I was hoping that I was perhaps overlooking some other software-side troubleshooting.
Thanks for any advice.
