Fibaro wall plug negative usage

Hi,

I installed a fibaro wallplug walli. It works great but a few days ago it for some reason is reporting the energy as a negative value… the energiemeter is counting upwards so that is working, its only the actual usage that is beiing reported as a negative value.

Its messing with my flows so kind of annoying. Anyone any idea ?

Anyone ?

I don’t know exactly which you mean by “Fibaro WallPlug Walli”, but I have a total of 11 Fibaro WallPlugs (Z-Wave and Z-Wave Plus) and no problems with them.

The wallplug is called “walli”… its not the one you plug into a socket but the socket itself.

I do not think the issue is with the socket itself… the usage that is done is counted as negative (like: when my car is charging it reports this as negative usage) but the “total used” counter adds up the way it should…

Ok, you mean the “Walli Outlet”…

I can’t really imagine that the problem is caused by the device either. Maybe it is a problem of the Homey Fibaro app. I would simply contact Athom about it. Recently, both the app and the Homey firmware have been updated from time to time because of Fibaro Walli devices. However, you will probably have to wait a long time for an answer, I have already received an email from them that they are currently having personnel problems dealing with the support requests.

One possibility would be to exclude the Walli and then include it again.

I sent an email in during the weekend…

Turn the plug 180 degrees?

Unplug,
Turn and plug again.

Yes, it should and may not matter, but… there where year that hitting a tv also worked.

I troed that already, did not make a difference.

The issue is with the Fibaro app by Athom… They are working on a fix. The issue arises when you activate the function to add the usage of the plug itself to the usage of that plug. When that is switched “on” the usage becomes negative.
