Has anyone had their switch turn on by itself? My wife said the hall light turned on in the middle of the night and this is the second time it has happened.

Unreal with these damn switches. That hasn’t happened to me yet but probably because they’re never on friggen line.
I have a few more switches/dimmers and 3 way remotes still in the box that I haven’t touched yet. I’m gonna install them to see if older firmware works better. Got them a while ago so I’m sure the firmware is outdated.

I can’t completely rule out a sleep walking kid. Who knows.

I’ve had these switches installed for 3 years and beyond the occasional glitch no real issues. Yesterday at 5am every switch turned on. It puzzled me what was happening so I unplugged my SmartThings hub. Left it off and again this morning all the switches turned on around 5am. I don’t have anything they are connected to active. Could this be some sort of power surge that turns the switches on?

That is weird. I have always wondered about the ability of people to hack into this and turn things on and off. 🤷‍♂️

It's happened maybe twice at my home. One of the lights came on in the middle of the night. I just assume it's a glitch in the matrix and move on. Also had my HomePod start playing in the middle of the night once. Scared the crap out of me. Didn't help that the last time I had used it, the volume was quite loud.🤷‍♂️
