Is it just me and my crazy android phone with 24hr time, or has everyone’s rules become messed up due to the time change? Why did the app take my 6pm to 7am rule and change it to a 5pm to 8am rule?
I don’t have 24hr time on my android phone it changed my 8am to 7am and 6:45pm to 5:45pm
Stranger yet… not even whole numbers.
On my Android everything is messed up as well. Originally set my light to turn on @ 11:00 pm and off @ 11:40 pm. Now it is set to 10 pm and 10:40 pm.
On my iPad everything is correct this morning so maybe an Android issue. Anyone that has iOS maybe they can confirm this.
On my iPhone and iPad running the latest Beta 2.6.55 all my schedules are correct. My wife is running production iOS I honestly can’t remember the version but no issues there either.
So if the Beta app changes the schedules (in some cases and in random ways, apparently), does the camera also automatically update itself to the new time? I’ve been thru several time changes since I bought my first camera, and never have I had a camera automatically update.
So it would be bad if the schedules were being changed but the cameras weren’t also.
I am not running the Beta app at this time.
This morning I went into Playback mode of a camera in the production app to check a longer version of something that just happened, and when I called up live view it asked me if I wanted to update the camera’s time. Dummy me said ‘yes’, then I realized it was going to record over the incident I was interested in, and the timeline wasn’t going to let me advance past the now hour back time, even though the timeline past the new current time was blue.
I assume I could have pulled the card at that point and looked at it with a computer, but it wasn’t interesting enough to go through the trouble. Just something else for them to consider. Falling back will re-record and lose the hour where it falls back.
Wow! I haven’t seen this issue since the day of mainframes. Glad other systems caught up.
Logic should be consistent. It is odd that schedules are changed when the clocks are not. At least in both of our cases.
What happens when we fly to a different time zone? Will this same mis-mash occur? Maybe we just have to click no? Time travel can cause many issues.
This happened with my non beta app on Android as well. I had to push all my times up an hour.
Flying to another time zone is a different issue, but a similar problem remains – the app doesn’t recognize that you are in 2 different time zones, so it will keep asking if you want to sync the cameras to your device’s time.
I didn’t realize this is the beta section, I’m not running beta , I’m running 2.5.36
@HDRock Yeah I flagged it to push to the non beta section. I’m running the same version as you.
I moved it since I created it… and added the android tag since the iOS users say they are fine.
I’m on beta so that’s where I generally post issues… didn’t realize non-beta would be affected as well.
Thanks for moving it. Apparently this issue happened with the spring forward in March as well. I didn’t notice it in the spring oddly.
Then it’s only a problem twice a year… no hurry to get it fixed.
We actually thought we had fixed the camera DST logic. I checked on this last week. I’m looking into why things are so inconsistent and we apologize for the inconvenience.
Just to be clear, this specific problem doesn’t appear to be a camera issue, but one with the app.
When the phone updated to DST, the rules with times went wonky - at least on Android. Time “fell back” on the phone, but the app adjusted rule times instead of just leaving then alone. For example, 7am in a rule became 8am.
Much appreciated! I’m also seeing some cameras not updating while others on the same account did. And it looks like Android Rules are more adversely affected than iOS.
@None your rule went forward (1 hr later) from 7 am to 8 am? All my rules changed to 1 hour earlier not later. For example, a rule that turns something on at 5 pm turned on at 4 pm instead.
So many inconsistencies.
