I’m poking around with my new hub, looking to see what’s where and ran across a problem.
In setting up the Mode Manager for Night, At a Specific Time and then entering 10pm, when I switch back the list of all the modes the time shows as 5pm. If I go back in and edit the item, it still has my entered time of 10pm. I happen to be on Eastern Standard Time here (-5 offset) but that wouldn’t explain the shift, as 10pm here is going to be 3am UTC, not 5pm. I’m guessing the code to handle showing me the time isn’t getting it right?
One curious question about modes is how to deal with a mode where only some people (like small kids, or those that turn in early) are asleep and then the ‘not a creature was stirring’ when even the night owls have turned in. Perhaps leading to a Day, Evening, Bedtime, Night sort of collection of modes? I don’t “need this” right now, but it’s been a factor I’ve worked around before and no other systems really handle it well either.
And for those with young kids, oh wouldn’t we LOVE to have a ‘Nap time’ mode that deliberately silences or otherwise ‘dummies up’ ANYTHING that might dare make noise…
