"Hallway" Motion Sensors Went Offline (Two Different Residences)
Yesterday I received an alert on my phone (via the SimpliSafe app) at 2:52 PM:
"Device Not Responding Hallway Motion Sensor"
Having already had the issue once before with my home office's Motion Sensor, I took out the battery in the problem sensor, reinstalled it, and that action restored the device. Now here comes the weird part.
I gifted my family member SS3 as a housewarming gift in late March (an upgrade from SS2). Last night at 7:52 PM, they sent me a text with the same error. When I say exact, it was only one Motion Sensor, and it was the exact location/device name: "Device Not Responding Hallway Motion Sensor." I told them about the weird problem I had only five hours earlier to the minute. They followed the steps I gave them to get it back online.
Did anyone else have an issue with their "Hallway Motion Sensor" yesterday? I ask as that was the only one (of multiple Motion Sensors) in separate homes to go offline. I am trying to figure out if perhaps there was an issue with SimpliSafe that would trigger such a specific event because the coincidence is exceptionally bizarre. To have the error happen to the minute five hours apart on a device named the same seems like there is more to the problem.
And we have separate accounts, never linked, and they live quite a distance away. So their gift was never associated with my own in any way.
