I have a lighting automation set up using the Smart Lighting Smart App to turn on my front porch light at “sunset -30 minutes”. Since changing to Standard Time, the light does not come on until it is already dark outside. It seems like it’s coming on at what would be sunset if we were still observing Daylight Saving Time (although not exactly – more on that below). I have deleted and re-created the rule, and no change.
When I look at My Location on the Developer site, it shows the time zone as America/New_York, and shows the precise coordinates for my home address that I set up in my account. Sunrise and sunset times are listed as 7:58 AM and 6:43 PM, which are not correct for either New York or my city (Atlanta) in DST or Standard Time.
What the heck’s going on here??
