A search only turned up lots of issues and some coding questions about sunrise/sunset. I’m trying to find out where ST pulls the actual times from and is there any place I can actually see the values ST pulled?
I know it’s using my Location settings, but what service is it using (Google?)?
Thanks @JDRoberts, this was a very helpful start. But it still leave a problem:
My global coordinates are correct, but the sunrise time (listed about 7am) is about 30 minutes late and sunset time (listed about 4:50pm) is 2 hours early according to Google. Also this morning the routine activated about an hour before the listed time. How often does the sunrise/sunset refresh in SmartThings? Why does the routine not happen at the time listed in the IDE?
What you are seeing is a completely different problem than the issues discussed in this thread. There’s a platform bug right now where many accounts are running on UTC time rather than their own time zone. This is causing routines and automations to run at the wrong time.. Typically routines are running early in the US and late from the UK. But if you check the times you’ll see that they are already on UTC time.
Since it’s a bug, it doesn’t matter what your account says about your time zone – – it’s running everything on UTC time.
This issue has been listed on the official status page and there are several threads discussing it today.
