I was sitting here watching my Sonos controller (Android) when it blinked and said something close to "Connecting to your network" for a few seconds then went back to the My Sonos screen. It had been showing the Office 2 room (Paired Play 3s) where I had been playing a playlist from my music library earlier, it was currently paused. Now the controller is connected to my Living Room Z and Office Z groups, two ZP-80s.

Both the Office 2 (Play 3) and ZP-80 rooms are wired to Ethernet and have static/reserved IP addresses.

The Android controller also has a static/reserved IP address and is connected via a single Unifi AP and CloudKey. Reviewing the CloudKey logs shows no disruptions in the WiFi or the connection to the controller.

I didn't see any disruption in my router logs. I did see a DHCP event from one of the Play 3s about the right time:

Sep 6 19:33:13 dhcpd DHCPACK on 172.16.1.126 to b8:e9:37:dd:14:6a via igb2
Sep 6 19:33:13 dhcpd DHCPREQUEST for 172.16.1.126 from b8:e9:37:dd:14:6a via igb2

and a bit of activity earlier:

No idea why it switched rooms but maybe the diagnostic caught something?

This morning the controller seems to be switching to the ZP-80 group/room on a semi-regular basis, every time I have woken the Android controlled from the screen-saver it has switched rooms.
