    I am just new to HS but have been running X10 for years. I am having trouble with the sunset on command. It comes, yes, but at 4:15AM or 1:30 AM instead of sunset. What am I doing wrong. My setup shows the correct city and Longtitude and latitude, and the time, sunrise and sunset times are correct on the HomeSeer line above the device list. My commands are:
    IF the time is sunset (9:26PM (S))
    and IF the Main Den lights has a value equal to off
    THEN Contrrol a device
    Main Den Lights ON
    I am probably missing something but it should be easy. Thanks

    Below the event under options do you have the 'security (randomize time triggers) box selected? Also, under settings, do you have the 'security offset enabled' checked and then put a number of minutes in the 'security offset +/- minutes' text box that you want it to turn on either side of the time.

      Yes the"security" Box is selected as is the enable button. It is set at 30 minutes.
