When I created the post for shutting off devices using the smart plug, I originally set the rule to turn on the smart plug when disabling the alarm. Regardless if it was for “On” or “Partial”.

Alarm off to power on smart plug

While testing this it seems the smart plugs doesn’t turn on all the time. There wasn’t any pattern or anything that made sense to me. So I’ve contacted Iris support and found that this is indeed a known issue at this time. This is why I had  reconfigured the rule to turn on the smart plug when the motion sensor sees movement, and it happens to be more consistent.

If you know of any other magic rule issues please place a comment. This is so we all know if there is a specific issue and it’s one less thing for us to guess if it’s working, and hopefully try to create a workaround for it.
