[INFO] Main power surge can cause Fibaro swipe to trigger events


Recommended Posts

Hello all,


Today we have very bad weather with heavy rain and more than 100mm in last 24 hours measured by my Netatmo rain sensor. Due to this bad weather there are occasional power surges. My Fibaro swipe is powered by reliable Apple USB charger but still today we experienced some strange behavior.


At each main power surge swipe triggered action, either to read weather forecast or last two times to put entire house to sleep :-) Can you imagine our faces when music suddenly stop playing, all lights turned off and Angelina (HC2) wished us good night at 13:05h :-D

Here is screenshot from event panel:

I removed other events for clarity :-)  All three swipe events where caused by power surge. I know that because at same time I get surge warning from one dimmer 2 and also UPS was switching to inverter and back to normal power.


Since I don't want to go to bed at day time I removed swipe event from the scene for the moment.


Did anyone experienced same swipe behavior?
