WTH is there no option for using the server timezone

When travelling and viewing my Home Assitant dashboards, times are displayed in my current timezone rather than the Home Assistant server’s timezone.

This is really confusing. “No, the alarm wasn’t armed at 1am, it was 7am, etc…”

Can an option be provided so that the frontend can be set to use the home timezone no matter where the client is located?

Please… Also affects things like my daily energy graphs and cost calculations when i’m travelling.

This would be so helpful! Debugging when you are remote would become much simpler if all times defaulted to server times

Yes please

This has been asked for for years. Might have to dig into this myself. Now that we have solar and batteries on a vacation home, the screens are just wrong. I am surprised this is not one of the most common features required for home automation: Make the timezone home centric! At least give me the option in the frontend. Thank you!

this would be very useful!

Yes Please!
It could either be in server configuration (i.e. ignore browser timezone completely!) or in user profile

As powerful as Home Assistant, this has to be the stupidest ‘bug’ I’ve seen.

Look at Energy Dashboard vs the Utility Meter. Both built-in functions showing different values because Home Assistant is using different start times. One shows 19.1, the other is showing 24.78. Both should be the same; ‘day’s energy use’.

This isn’t a feature request. It’s a bug.

You are correct. Any logic that resets sums on date boundaries becomes incorrect when performed in any other timezone than the home server’s.

+1 from me…actually people have been asking for this for a very long time already.
