Ceiling fan is possessed

I replaced our old ceiling fan/light with one that is remote controlled. Itís fine, but occasionally, the light turns on, or the fan turns off, or changes speeds, all with no input from the remote. Sometimes weíre not even home. The fan is, IMO, too sensitive to signals from the remote. I can control the fan from the other end of the house, outside; the signal is being sensed thru several interior walls and an exterior wall. So Iím convinced that a remote in a neighborís house is triggering our fan. Iíve reset the fan and remote, which is supposed to reprogram them to a different Ďcodeí, but the problem persists.

Any ideas?
