Random device cycling

Hi. My family has 4 houses. We have each separately noted over the last 7 days that our devices cycle on, off or inch randomly. Sonoff switches turn off. Inching devices inch randomly. Some devices, the problem cleared up after deleting the device and re-registering it. Others continue to act up. Do you have any idea what is going on? We all live about 1 mile apart.

Thank you for your input.

When the device turns on or off randomly, is its indicator flashing and it shows offline in the App?

App and functionality is normal. It just decides to randomly react. First time it happened I thought that i had been hacked. Now i have learned to recognize it quickly. One thing that can trigger it is a whole house power failure or brown out. Sometimes after Cable service has been performed. But none should continue to effect the device after the incident.

I think that was caused by the ISP unstable, when the power outage or router redial to the server, the devices linked to it will restore, but mostly the process is silence, but some cases, especially some older devices, can not linked successfully, so those back to pairing mode after try several times, which caused the randomly action.

May be you can try this feature to minimize the issue eWeLink app feature: Power-on State #smarthome #shorts - YouTube
