    Workaround for Sunrise/Sunset Offset

    Here's a workaround (though not perfect) to allow one to add an offset to sunrise/sunset times. It's based on the fact that the earth rotates 360 degees in 24 hours, therefore one hour is equal to 15 degrees of longitude.

    Normally Kasa gets its location info (latitude,longitude) from your mobile device, but you can set it manually. Go to Settings>Location and Time>Location and use the "enter location manually' link.

    If you want the sunrise/sunset time to be earlier, increase the longitude (e.g., changing from -82.5 degrees to -75 degrees moves the sunset/sunrise time 30 minutes earlier). Don't change the latitude unless you want to get more or less hours of daylight than your default location.

    Advantages: Fairly fine control over offset - just do the math.
    Disadvantages: Both sunrise and sunset times are affected by the same amount. You can't change them in opposite directions. All devices are affected by the same amount of offset.

    I agree that we need an offset for sunrise/sunset that will work on a per device level (for each schedule).

    Totally agree - adding this as a feature would make the plug perfect.

    Hi, I have a comprehension problem. Sunrise to sunset is in 1 day and daylight hours, so why the functionality need? If it was sunset to sunrise, during darkness, there is a MAJOR bug that Kasa will not span one day at sunset to the next day at sunrise. They know about this since December, 2017 and the new Rev 2 release still has not corrected this. It would be really nice to get a clear answer and update for fixing this

    Just a note to anyone new to this who comes across this thread, Stringify now works with Kasa and unlike IFTTT allows a sunrise or sunset timer that you can vary for up to +/- 2 hours, in 15 minute intervals.

    I agree, I would also like to have the option to manually adjust the sunrise/sunset times.

    Bought one of these because WeMo no longer supported / distributed in Australia and I just assumed such a basic function would be available ..... Crazy that they just ignore user requests. I want sunset plus X hours but alas😡😡😡😡

    TP-Link is working on this feature.

    I have also consulted this same request before and they said it will be supported.

    Not sure how long we need to wait, but hope it will come true soon..

    Stringify was the solution I used and I'm quite pleased with it. As far as them working on it, I had an email exchange with support in March. In reply to my suggestion I received the following reply:
    Thanks for the suggestion. This topic has been discussed, however ,we can not make the need come true.
    We are so sorry about that, we can not ahead the sunrise or delay sunset.
    Sorry for the inconvinience caused, but you can seup schedule for your purpose.

    My reply was "if
    you can determine the time of sunset you can determine 30 minutes before sunset. It is not impossible, it is just a lack of desire to meet customer needs".

    I then received the following response:
    Many thanks for your valuable reply.

    We have already sent a feedback regarding your request. The team will evaluate the plan.
    Thanks for your feedback. Have a great day!

    I'm going to give them the benefit of doubt and chalk it up to language barrier rather than snark, but as I said, Stringify works for me.

    I figured I'd email them as well, this is what I got back, frustrating as it seems like such a simple option to add

    Thank you very much for requesting information about our product.

    If so, for your requirement, please refer to the below guidance to setup the Sunset at first.

    Then setup a schedule to turn off. Like if sunset is 6.00pm, if you want to turn off 3 hours later, you may setup a schedule of 9:00 to turn off. As sunset time is not at same period time everyday, you may change the schedule everyday.
    By the way, the plug cannot control the devices with standby mode.
    Thanks for your cooperation!
