I don't know vera, but if it has commands to change groups (aka "associations") then that might work (not to permanently fix the problem, but to avoid having to do reconfigure or power on reset to fix the phantom when you have it). The idea is you read the groups from the device, remove the bad ones (or rather keep only those you want which will very likely be the controller only) then write them to the device... This will "scrub" the phantom associations.   That said... If you know so
