Maybe they have the same fancy nav light control panel

Some company took a simple idea such as light switch and made it so complicated, that when it goes wrong, it goes very very wrong.
We have this all singing and dancing panel. Each light has its own touch button, but, if the effort of turning on all the needed lights is too much, I can select, for example, "Underway", and all the required nav lights will come on.
Problem we had, was when at anchor, at various unpredictable times, the steaming lights would turn themselves on.
Took about a year and various replacement PCB's to get the thing sorted.
