Time Zone issue and relating automations

Hello All,

I have some automation to use a sonoff plug turn on to turn on a lamp at a specific time. After setting the desired time (I am in EST). The light turns on at times other than where I have set. For example, if I set to 3:30 AM/ PM it will turn on at 7AM/PM (using illustratively). Is there a setting in the GUI that I should be changing to ensure the time zones align?

BUMP. Can anyone shed some light on this, it would be much appreciated.

Shameful BUMP

Have you installed Home Assistant in a virtual machine (VM)? Is the VM’s system clock configured correctly?

I have HA installed on a raspberry pi. Thanks for letting me know thats a variable for next time
