Sengled smart plug incorrect power level reported

I have a Sengled smart plug in an outlet with NOTHING plugged into it. I have it programmed to send a notification if the power exceeds 2w (which works if I plug in a lamp). Once or twice a day with nothing plugged into it, it will send a notification! Anyone have that experience? Any ideas why? Any solutions? Bad plug? Thanks!

I have a sengled smart plug with the rounded corners (not the older square one). I have never once had such a problem. In its device settings you can specify the tolerance change in Watts before reporting: 1, 5, 10, 15, 30, 60, 100, 200, 500 (I use 5 for my coffee maker outlet). Depending on your use-case and if you have the same options, you could increase the tolerance to reduce the nuisance.
