Dear Homey veterans.
It is 03:36 and Homey is now off the grid.
At about 03:00 at night I woke up because my bedroom lights (Philips Hue) were switched on.
I soon realised ALL remote controlled lights in the house were on.
Since I have a few Cleverio lights that are not in the Hue universe, I figured it was something to do with Homey rather than the Hue bridge.
I used my phone to switch everything off, and went back to bed.
Then at around :03:30 Homey starts shouting at full volume in English, that the alarm is going off.
( My Homey is supposed to talk Swedish, and have done so since initially installed by me a month or two ago.)
Homey is even repeating it self, before one sentence is finished, it starts a new one. -At full volume! And then blaring the wake up chimes, again at full volume.
In an attempt to stop all of my family to wake up, I jumped out of bed to unplug the devious little device from mains power.
So for natural reasons, not much of trouble shooting was done.
What on earth is happening??
Clearly I can’t have this happening, so I’m great full for any help, or Home is going to go out the window.
( Which would be one expensive throw…)
That’s exactly what happened with my Homey in the middle of the night. (The alarm part not lights turning on part). Homey was mumbling and repeating itself. It coincided with updating to latest 4.0.0 firmware. I had no choice and I did the same, unplugged it from power.
Since that day it hasn’t happened again.
No flows changed before this event for months.
Interesting. I’ve never thought to look into a possible power outrage. It could have happened that night.
And in regards with the power adapter, I’ve never used the original one since it had the EU plug, I’ve always used an iPad 10W power adapter.
