I would like to suggest an improvement to the schedule feature of your smart plugs and switches and of course the Kasa app.

 

I do like the ability to use sunrise and sunset times in the schedule. For me it could be even better if we could specify an minutes offset from sunrise and sunset. For example, I want my indoor lights to turn on "15 minutes before sunset" because it gets dark inside before the actual sunset. So if we could specify a number of minutes (0 - 60), before or after, sunrise or sunset in the schedule it would be most helpful.

@NikD63 Thank you for your suggestion. Your idea of having a offset when using sunrise or sunset functions will be forwarded to our developers for consideration.

I will second this suggestion, the room was dark before the smart bulb and smart plug turned on.

There are three types of twilight; civil, nautical and astronomical.  Civil has the most light, perhaps adjusting sunrise and sunset time to the civil time would work.

I have been looking for this option/feature as well. I would like to use this on the Smart switch controlling my porch lights. 

There is no needd to have them on until a few minutes after sunset, then off a few minutes before.

If minimizing you energy usage is a goal, this will definately help!
