Expanded the +/- minutes for dawn/dusk timers
« on: January 30, 2018, 08:05:05 AM »

I have a couple of situations where 30 minutes before dusk is already too late to be turning on a lamp.  +/- 30 minutes may be OK for outside applications, but inside may get dark sooner depending on which side of the house and where the nearest windows are.  Previous HA controller had a +/- 60 minute option.

Makes sense to me!

I said from day one with this devices creation, "Users expect atleast the same functions as the CM15 disconnected from the PC."

 I too use to require a longer offset. Now both my wife and I are home long before dusk where I used it most and I'm seldom up before dawn anymore.

I voted for 60 minutes as well. All of my lights currently scheduled on are set to 60 minutes before dusk in AHP/CM15. Works like a champ.

Also would love to see advanced dusk/dawn available in the WM100 app (unless I've missed it) Not sure where the app gets it's times for local dusk/dawn.
