I’ve seen a bunch of posts about red dimmers turning themselves off, (which I have also experienced) but the other day I also got a couple of mystery turn ons yesterday (12/26/2022) with red dimmers. They are running firmware 1.48 and the Hubitat C7 is running 188.8.131.52.
One is a standalone in my wife’s closet (not part of a 3 way) and had been fine for about a year. All of my switches have a neutral. I noticed the light was on, so I pressed the down paddle. It turned off, but then turned right back on. I did this a 2nd time and the same thing happened. The third time it went off, and now seems to be acting properly in the last 24 hours. I’ll include screenshots of my settings, but the only rules I have for it are a 1 “pushed” (i.e. “up”) turns the light to 100% and a 7 pushed to set it to 25%, both with a fade time of zero. (BTW, I have the 1 pushed rule because the light won’t go to 100% if the light was already on otherwise - I know others have requested that the “default” setting would be implemented even if the light was already on, and I’ll add my vote for that here too).
I have these params set:
1 0 (Dimming)
2 3 (Switch dimming)
3 0 (Ramp)
4 0 (Switch ramp)
9 99 (Default Level Local)
10 99 (Default Level Z-Wave)
11 100 (State After Restore)
18 0 (Active Power Reports)
51 Yes (Disable Physical On/Off Delay)

The other switch this happened with yesterday was the “master” of 2 red dimmers in a 3 situation. Again, I pressed the paddle down to turn it off, and it came back on. The rules and settings for this one are a bit more involved, but it had never done this before. I’m not posting all the details about this one to keep it simple at this point and focus on the “standalone” one which has about as minimal programming as possible.
