Typically in a circumstance where a question comes up about why certain actions occur or why rules do not fire, we would check in the history and match up what is reported there with the times you reference the problem occurring.
Unfortunately this does not appear to be related to a suretyDIY account so we cannot see any details of your account.
In general, Z-wave automation commands are not typically sent from Alarm.com. Rules are saved locally and the panel processes the commands when applicable.
The only rule I have on them is to turn on if alarm goes off.
Schlage plug dimmer (which looks exactly like my go control ones) – sometimes turns on at a dim setting on it’s own. And once dim, the rule turn on is dim also. I have a rule on this one to turn on for 20 minutes with a motion sensor during evening and morning hours. But I will find it on it the middle of the day. Maybe happens once a week
The likely answer to these is someone manually turning on the light, or a local alarm occurring and turning on the light. We cannot see the rule to verify what is selected, and we can’t see history to verify whether any mobile commands were sent, so there would be a lot of guessing with regard to these questions, I’m afraid. Would you mind posting a screenshot of that rule configuration for the rules you have set up?
The best thing to do in this case would be to note the times and days you notice the light being on outside the expected time and check your Alarm.com history. For suretyDIY users, we are able to check our dealer history as well.
Do you have any other users with access to the Alarm.com app who might be turning the lights on?
GE switch – i have a rule to turn on an laundry room on movement and door opening for 20 minutes. If i am in the room, sometimes it will turn off. I have tested this one a lot. If i am moving around, most of the time it will keep extending the on time (like it should). But every once and a while it just turns off. I have tested by adding a light on a plug dimmer that turns on for 3 minutes to match the motion sensor 3 minute time out. I have had the room light go off while the 3 minute light is still on. (my wife hates me for this one, “why do I need this when it goes dark on me
This one is a little easier to troubleshoot, because the issue is going to be the motion detector. Wireless security PIR detectors are designed to filter false alarms, limit repeated activation, conserve battery, and above all catch an acute intrusion. They are not designed to be and do not function well as sustained occupancy sensors.
The wireless motion sensor does not necessarily reset after 3 minutes. The PIR1-345 resets after about 3 minutes of no motion, meaning if someone is in the range of the detector, it may take far longer to reset for another activation.
Your best bet here is to use a separate wired motion detector, programmed as a no-response type and used to turn the light on for any application where the light needs to be constantly responsive to occupancy.
