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
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!
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
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.
Is it possible to set the time zone for the mobile app?
I live in Perth, Western Australia, but am currently working in Tahiti, which is 18 hours behind.
When I open the app, it automatically adjusts the logfile times to local time, which is of course, way off and makes it difficult to analyse.
I can get around it by changing the phone’s timezone, but don’t really want to do this as it then messes up my alarms and schedules on my phone.
Thank you for sharing the link. Although it feels wrong having to redo the votes for this. This is really a missing basic capability: Home Automation should always be Home Centric on times or none of the graphs, charts, metrics, alarms make any sense.
I can’t say this any better then fxstein. (Post
Home timezone display in browser - #6 by tom_l) If the developers don’t agree with this statement then please add an option for this.
This continues to be a major issue. All screen with daily summarizations and especially the energy dashboard are wrong when away from the home’s TZ.
I workaround that by using a cheapest tablet configured to the desired time zone. A remotely accessible VM would work too.
I have one of my laptops I travel with set to my home time zone specificity because of this issue. it is however not an acceptable solution.
Any solution would be good here. An update to pick the Timezone from the user profile instead of the system would seem on the surface the simplist.
