Controllers flooding DNS server with requests for nonexistent domain

Started by TCR


For the past two months Nanoleaf controllers have been making an insane amount of DNS queries for the domain

With the controllers I have it's an average of ~70000 queries a day.
Effectively performing a DDoS attack on my home network.

There are also threads on Reddit about this.


Half a year has past and even with firmware version 9.2.3 the problem still exists.
The DNS response is NODATA, which means that the requested record does not exist.

We're getting to the point of failure to comply with the EU laws and regulations.
