Stop 2nd light being triggered by switching on another light switch

Hi

A light in my house “Light 2” has recently started switching itself on when another light “Light 1” is switched on. There isn’t a flow triggering it, so I’m wondering if there is some kind direct paring or grouping that has happened.

It’d appreciate it if somebody could help we work out why, and how to get it stop happening.

These are the settings for is “Light 2”, which is coming on when it shouldn’t:

…and these are the settings for Light 1, which seems to be triggering light 2, when it’s turned on

Really, nobody knows the answer? Or even how to diagnose?

Have you tried restarting the fibaro app or PTP?

You supply very little context information. Just settings don’t make clear in what situation it happens, nor what the circumstances are. So since the chances that someone else experiences exactly the same are very small, i think it isn’t very strange that no one has a suitable answer yet.
Only thing i can think of is that you have the wrong switch selected in your flow or that you selected something (i think it is called scene activation or something like that) when you added the FGD-212 switch.
