Troubleshooting: Gen 2 Dimmer & On / Off | LED Lights Up On Multiple Switches During Exclusion
This issue has been fixed in firmware 1.17+
This is a very technical issue that I will try to explain as best as I can. The take away though is that there are no negative side effects to this happening, and the switches are merely responding to a command sent to a type of "broadcast" network id. The scenario only occurs when two or more switches have been excluded from a network or are factory reset AND one of them is excluded again.
Line 1344 shows the controller going into exclusion mode. Lines 1364-1379 shows the controller broadcasting that it is in exclusion mode every couple of seconds. Line 1381 Shows that the controller has responded to a node that has the node id of "0". Then it sends a couple NOP packets to node "0" which is like a ping.
So any node that has been excluded from a network or has been factory reset has a node id of "0". So the two switches next to each other are either both factory reset or have been excluded and are not part of a network and are both responding to the controllers command to node "0".
Now, If one switch is part of a network during exclusion, the controller sends the exclusion command to that exact node ID and not "0" so the other switch does not respond (since it is node 0).
See node 13 is being targeted and not 0
Since this happens only when the devices are not part of a network there are no worries!
