Introducing: Offset times for sunset and sunrise events

You asked for it (I asked for it :raised_back_of_hand:t3:) and here it is: sunrise and sunset offsets!! You’ll now be able to setup a time event that starts for example 20 minutes before Sunrise, or 30 minutes after Sunset.

A couple of examples

Offsets are very handy when you want for example to turn on your lights at home as it starts getting darker… because it starts getting pretty dark way before sunset! So you’ll be able to turn your living room lights on automagically at dusk.

You can also wake up earlier than, let’s say, your chickens :chicken:, if you are so inclined. We won’t stop you.

We’ll also display your local time

Until now, we were recommending that you chose a location where the Sunset/Sunrise happens earlier than your location, which can be a bit confusing. You’ll be able to use your home location and then modify the time event by specifying an offset.

We will also display when is the sun rising or setting at your location, so you’ll know if you are aiming for the right time :dart:

We have a detailed guide in case you’d like to see how to set this up:

Happy Apilioing!
