Extreme newbie in this area. So be gentle and keep it simple.
I built a new bed base and put the platform on actuators that lift for access to storage with the use of a controller with a 433mhz remote.

Everything works perfectly but occasionally we will find the bed up without pressing the remote.
We have discovered that it is the hair dryer that is triggering the controller.

Is there a fix, or do I need to source out a different controller?

Maybe the HD is radiating a bunch of random frequencies, try shielding the receiver in a small metallic container if possible.

Concern there is...... would the tin foil also attenuate the control signal.
Maybe a different hair dryer wouldn't interfere.
I was thinking that as well. But if I'm going to experiment with buying a new hair dryer, I might as well look into a different controller. The one I got is probably cheaper than most hair dryers.
