jrubenstein,
I'm sorry, I realized the error in my logic and deleted my post (while you were apparently in the process of posting).  I apologize, I would not have done that had I known you were in the process of posting.

From what I can see in my interface - if left disconnected from the computer the RTC (real time clock) will continue to operate and the interface will activate 1 hour earlier on Nov 4.  In order to correct for this 1 hour AHP programmed change, the CM15a will need to be connected to a PC to adjust the RTC forward by 1 hour (no net change in GMT).

My commentary on Indiana joining the DST collective was "tounge-in-cheek".  My youngest child now gets on the bus in the dark year round.  I'm also separated from the west coast (where 5 of my sister companies and countless customers are located) by three hours - that's a pain.  I sure am glad that my lawn gets that extra hour of sunlight though!

One question that needs answering is why some AHP users don't have their CM15A connected to their PC 24/7?  With PCs so cheap these days, why not leave it connected?


I also leave my Home Automation PC run 24/7. Since I use Voice Command (and a couple other things) I have to.

For me... after changing regular light bulbs out for CFL's and even a couple LEDs.... it wasn't easy to decide to run a PC 24/7. But it IS worth it.

I use an older curb-side quality PC. I could replace it any "trash-day" by simply looking at what has been set-out on the curb in nearby neighborhoods. I also keep the monitor turned OFF. I currently get alerts and warning from the PC (and plan to expand on that) that I can't get any other way. 

I am sure the few extra penny's of electricity used is more than off-set with (automated) power consumption savings.
