Dimmer turns off when wall-plug consumption hits zero

Recently I've experienced my dimmer turning off by itself

 

It started after I moved a wall-plug to a near vicinity of it (wanted to measure usage of a freezer), and when I compared the consumption in HC2 I could see that the dimmer turns off every time the wall-plug usage drops to 0 (see attachment below).

I can only say WTF!?!

The Wall Plug has this capability, indeed... What's in Association group 2 and what are parameters 50, 51 and 52 set to? I expect p50 = 2 meaning "turn off associated device if power below parameter 50 (default 30 W)".

    Hmm. I know that I haven't setup associations on this device, but after a 'Soft reconfigure' I found out that it was indeed associated with 3 different modules (could only locate 1 of them in my system). What I cannot explain, is why this didn't happen when it was in the other room far from the dimmer.

     

    Anyway thanks for pointing me in the right direction...

  • No explanation as to what has happened... Glad I could help!

    Bye!

     

    Well I've never had any reason to associate anything with this wall plug as it was connected to a PC, so I don't know why I would do that.

     

    Whats also strange, is that I was not able to remove the association to "Loftslamper", because there was no checkbox so I had to clear associations instead (see attachment below)...

    In some cases, the GUI doesn't allow to clear associations by using check-marks. For example, when you exclude a device, it may still appear in the associations list of another device. Setting a new association to a temporary device, will clear the "orphaned" association. Fibaro is aware of this and it's on their to-do list.
