I always regret that I never bought one from Drew A. Kaplan back in the day. There are times when I consider adding one to my collection (along with a Hilton AC-300), but there are other time when I wonder why I even have any of my vinyl clutter. I think I still have over 10 turntables and several changers. It's all just clutter.

EXACTLY one hour late DAWN & DUSK.

Like above, use -30 and youíll be 30 late for both DAWN & DUSK.

Your DUSK time will work out almost perfectly for no light left from the sun.

As a pilot, you canít log night flying time until 30 minutes after official sunset.

In the 80's I lived in LA and always enjoyed visiting the DAK showroom where their catalog came to life. In addition to the stuff in the catalog they had a lot of open box deals and small quantities of other products only sold in the store.  Although I haven't used it in awhile, I still have a DAK bread maker which we actually used quite bit and it made great bread.
It was the DAK catalog that got me started with X10.

PLEASE CODE FOR A 24 hour clock. This AM/PM for adults is ridiculous. With a 24 hour clock, these errors can't be made.

While I am totally comfortable with a 24 hour clock, I believe most people would prefer AM/PM.  There are very few devices (maybe none) that use a 24 hour clock in a typical home.  I suspect a lot of people would not realize 17:00 meant 5PM.

I am one of those folks that would have an issue with 24 hour time.  It is fine for time stamping data records, but we have always referred to AM/PM hours.  In music it was not "Seventeen O'clock World" or "Working Nine to Seventeen".  And would you turn on your TV to watch the "Eighteen O'clock News"?  It is subtracting 12 that is the issue.

I always called them hundred hours. I work in public safety where it's the norm. I think a dual option would be awesome.

Adding to this string....  I also notice that a timer event scheduled for dusk (-30) is being executed well into dark! Running V0.0.23 firmware.

I agree. I have a DVR that displays time as AM or PM but setting time is 24 hour. Makes me nuts. Too many times I have set the wrong time by 12 hours.

Re: Dusk dawn (bug) -- Dimming?
« Reply #54 on: March 06, 2018, 02:58:52 AM »

Dusk timer needs to allow dimming capabilities when setting up dimmer switches.  You can set that on the regular timer, but not dusk/dawn.
