Hi @ Tinuva.Anyone know what is going on with the latest shelly firmware? Version 1.8.3 is going nuts.
3x Shelly Dimmer1
HomeAssistant with ShellyForHass (latest version)
Shelly cloud = disabled
MQTT = disabled
Since upgrading, my dimmers don't show their state in HomeAssistant but control was mostly fine except sometimes they are unresponsive.
1x dimmer and 1x shelly1 decided to become undiscoverable by HomeAssistant which was really annoying because the dimmer is the kitchen one most in use.
My solution was to downgrade the firmware at least on the dimmers, using this lovely archive (THANK GOODNESS):
It took me a while to figure out I need to use SHDM-1 for the Shelly Dimmers, was lucky to find this post (you need to accept TnCs):

So here is something I noticed, looks like my Shellies are spamming DNS but I don't know why since I dont have them cloud enabled:
(ps. factory reset fixed nothing, only downgrading did)

That is one crazy amount of lookups on that domain...

Most of my shellies pop up here...
Here you can see, this search was done at 9pm, the spamming on DNS stopped after downgrading, the archive.shelly-faq.de dns lookup is where I initiated the OTA firmware downgrade.
