I turned off the circuit breaker for the garage which also has the foyer light on it and then about 5 minutes later turned it back on and the lights in the foyer did not turn on for about 5 minutes after I flipped the breaker to turn it back on.
I repeated this another time and the same result. It doesn't seem to be right at 5 minutes, It seems to be just some amount of minutes after flipping the switch back on.
Has anyone ever heard of this behavior? Nothing was done to the lights on the garage circuit. I was trying to find the breaker for another room.
I read something about delayed off but I didn't see anything about delayed on.
You mentioned garage/foyer light and happening every 5 minutes or so. Is it one of those sensor lights/switches that comes on when you enter the garage/foyer automatically?? When power gets cut to them, timer gets messed up, and they need to be reset sometimes.
