Wifi wall switch turning lights on randomly

I have 2 wifi wall switches that are turning on my lights by itself. Model is no-ch1xis8. There are no schedules. I find the switch turns the lights on randomly throughout the week. I’ve searched for the solution with no luck. Thank you.

Re: Wifi wall switch turning lights on randomly

Hi, jgr327,


Welcome to our community! Thank you for reaching out to us to share your experience with your two Insignia Wall switches that appear to be operating on a schedule, but there are none available for them to be following. I appreciate the time you’ve taken to share the serial number of your switch with us privately; however, we’d highly recommend giving advanced support team a call at (877) 467-4289 regarding this matter. They'd be best positioned to assist you further.

Re: Wifi wall switch turning lights on randomly

I used to have similar issues with my switches. I figured out mine were a result of frequent disconnects from WiFi due to my router not being able to handle all the devices at once. So I’d send a command to turn a light on that never made it to the switch. Then, once the switch eventually reconnected to my WiFi the command would make it to the switch, causing it to turn on. I upgraded to a Netgear Orbi mesh setup, and haven’t had it happen since.
