    Would I be able to put a clock / Time device on homeseer HS4 ? and how would I do that ?

    You could run a script that updates a device status with a clock / timer. It'll be the system time on the HS4 box. I use similiar here for my Homeseer touchscreens.

    &nhs.SetDeviceStringByName("Time", now.ToString("HH:mm"), True) & hs.SetDeviceStringByName("Date", now.ToString("ddd. MMM dd"), True)

    &nhs.SetDeviceStringByName("Time5Sec", now.ToString(":ss"), True)

    Public Sub ShowTime(parms As Object) Dim iMin As Integer = CInt(hs.DeviceValueByName("CDTimer")) Dim iHour As Integer = iMin \ 60 iMin = iMin Mod 60 Dim buff As String = CStr(iMin) If iMin < 10 Then buff = "0" + buff ' Ensure minutes is two digits hs.SetDeviceStringByName("CDTimer", CStr(iHour) + ":" + buff, False) End Sub
    Google / search on the Homeseer forum and you will see many examples.

    Personally here run an NTP with PPS server on my PFSense firewall which uses a serial GPS and PPS from the GPS board.

    All of the devices on my home network get their time from the PFSense Firewall box.
