Been running these lights now for almost 9 months, each fixture I have had to replace the wifi board, 3x now in 2 of the fixture.

I run the 5 timers for the day.. at the end of the day it switches to moonlight mode 10pm. I get up for work at 430am and the whites are on by themselves sometime in the night in 1 of the fixtures. I have to cycle between manual and wifi mode to kick it back into the correct timer setting. Sometimes it will last for weeks.. or the next day the same thing will happen.

Has anyone else had this problem and is there a suitable mod or fix I can do then wait 3 weeks for a new wifi board?

Thanks

Frank

I just replaced the wifi controller 2 days ago.

This evening, the blues just started fading in and out for few minutes by
themselves. Got really disappointed.

I run in the 24 hour mode and set it 10 hours a day.

Another thing with these, there is no security at all. I asked about this,
though unlikely but possible, someone else can control your lights.

The wifi option is awesome but useless if unstable and unrealiable.
