Summer / Winter - time

Charger schedule does not take into account summer/Winter-time changes

The charger currently does not currently take into account changes in time due to daylight savings (Winter/Summer) time. Any re-occurring schedule will be 1 hr wrong every time the time is changed from Summer to winter and vice versa.

Please ensure that you manually update your schedules as daylight savings time is changed.

The Easee app takes into account what the current time zone is when setting a schedule in the app. The charger just does not know if the time is changed due to daylight saving.
When setting a schedule in the Easee app you should use the start and stop time you want as presented by the app.

One year - and the charger still does not know about correct time zones? Is there no configTime() in time.h? Timezone could be passed by the app, so it‘s only 1 line of code for the charger!

Wait. You did "Use phone's timezone when generating consumption reports for chargers instead of UTC." (changelog V1.4.0) but you struggle to use the phone´s time zone for the charging schedule?
Whut?

It is a major setback that i cannot change the time manually. Why is that?
The charging roboter has a connection to the internet. Why not use time servers?
This problem is brought up 1,5a ago and confirmed at least a year ago but not adressed in the slightest. How can that be?
Even if it is over your heads and you are unable to implement an automated shift, at least give us the opportunity to manually set the time like on our mothers ninties microwave ovens.
(Or give up and go by UTC/GMT Z alltogether.)
If you cannot fix this in over 1,5 years, which othe major flaws in your software/app keeps you from solving this one? Should we know about them? Can we recommend you to other people?
I am quite frankly underwhemled.

The app won't let me set 01:30-5:30, it keeps changing it to 02:30. I need it to be the equivalent of 00:30-04:30 which is what my car tariffs time is, can you fix this please.

Try again now, if you were trying to set it on the Sunday, then 01:30 was still in wintertime (because the wintertime to summertime conversion actually took place between 02:00 to 03:00 on Sunday) - Meaning any time you pick on that Sunday before 03:00 will still be considered wintertime, and thus shifted according to wintertime rules.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Please add an time function in the app. Is a bad joke that I must manually change every Winter/change the whole schedules

last night I setup a delayed charged at 5:00, after save it was smartly changed to 6:00. But it is not starting chargimg today as the first day of summer time. I think it is not so hard to code it!

Ok... The code is the easy part. Knowing what time zone to follow, and if and when that zone actually changes is another thing.

you are joking of the logic, to check time change and automatically fit the schedule, max 10 lines could fix this problem. is that so hard for you?

I have a planned charge every night of the week from 00:05-06:00. The app won't let me configure this after switching from winter to summer time. I can configure it for 03:05-06:00. I'm from Denmark.

Try again now, if you were trying to set it on the Sunday, then 00:05 was still in wintertime (because the wintertime to summertime conversion actually took place between 02:00 to 03:00 on Sunday) - Meaning any time you pick on that Sunday before 03:00 will still be considered wintertime, and thus shifted according to wintertime rules.

Whut? Two years ago and Not solved? It is a quite repetitious phenomenon.

Good to know but come on team, it's 2022 and we expect this to just work.
