Could be anything, are you using a Zigbee hub or any other LPWAN service for the home automation. 

How is data routed into your home automation, is it via cloud services or via your home network, with ingress via a Router and your ISP?

Current Phone: Sony XPeria Pro-I and Motorola Razr 5G
I also have a Planet Computers Gemini

I work in IT as an Enterprise Messaging and Collaboration Tools Administrator (Office 365, Slack and much much more) and manage hardware both Mobile and Desktop / laptop, my desk is a bit like PC World

We are all customers and dont have access to any o2 accounts

It will be a blocked port on O2.

They always deny doing this but it's been a problem for as long as I can remember on here.

I can't imagine calling O2 to rectify it will do any good but it's worth trying.

If you can get the issue escalated to the network support team, you have a chance.

I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.

Currently using:
OnePlus 6 (O2 & Sfr), Z3 Tablet (Three UK), iPhone 8+ (EE)

Thanks for the heads up, easier to go back to virgin media, o2 support is the worst I’ve seen so far.

Going round and round with o2 support, apparently my sim is setup for android and not iOS, will take 24hrs to for new setting to take effect, wait and see I guess.

From o2 support 
With the information you just gave me, I dont believe that is supported on the o2 network, I am happy to raise this but will set your expectations that this is potentially information that the  network team will come back with

First week with 02, what a **** provider 
So you would like me to send the details to the network team on the understanding that potentially they will give you the information that i have just given to you?
