Using the Kasa App, I really like the ability to perform actions based on Sunrise or Sunset, but I'd be super-stoked if I could perform actions based on a relative time.  For example, turn on a light one hour before sunrise or turn off a light one hour after sunrise.

This is not a feature that is available yet with our smart products but it has been brought up to the team. In the mean time if you are also a user of Amazon Alexa this is possible using routines. 

 

For detials on routines see this great aritcle @Tony wrote to explain this features

This is pretty much a must-have in order to make the Kasa app workable at all. It doesn't work to turn on lights at the point when it is already dark inside and around the house. Please step it up!

@KevMo I was able to adjust the sunset time by 30 minutes by changing the Longitude manualy in the Kasa app. by 7.5 degress less negative. This works since I have the smart plug to turn of at a set time and don't use the sunrise function. The Kasa app. recent update said that sunset and sunrise offsets were added but the firmware update is not released yet.

@KevMo Glad it worked out for you. I had to Google about Longitude and it showed that 1hr = 15 deg. this is based on 360deg / 24 hr = 15deg / 1 hr.  I hope that Kasa gets the firmware updates released soon.
