Strange 'offs' ?

Sorry if I have missed this somewhere else in the forums.
Checking the event log, I noticed several entries today that look like this:
Oct 16, 2011 8:00:20 AM
Received X10 O9 off
Received X10 O8 off
Received X10 O7 off
Received X10 O6 off


Occasionally these will be different numbers, but they often come in bursts of 3 or 4.
The most recent tonight was when taking the dog out for the last time before lights-out.

The garage motion detector senses motion inside the garage, and if the garage is dark, turns on a single incandescent bulb mounted in a socket rocket (I know...). Not sure if there are any ties to this combination, but I'll be watching it more closely.

Thanks for any recommendations!

Re: Strange 'offs' ?

I had this exact problem several years ago - I finally found that it was an old X10 light switch that was apparently going bad - it would just randomly spit out a sequence like that. After I replaced it I stopped getting those stray signals.
