KP200 Sunrise/Sunset Offset

Model: KP400  
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.0.7

(for the mods)To start the KP200 is not listed as a model in the drop down menu when you are starting a new thread.....may want to add it if you want these threads to be accurate since it forces you to choose a model to start a new thread.

 

I just replaced 4 HS100 smart plugs with KP200 smart outlets.  With the HS100's I was able to set a sunrise/sunset offset time.  For example, have the outlet turn on 30 mins before sunset.  I do not see this feature with the KP200.  Am I missing something?  I assume that since this feature was available on a product of yours that is 5+ years old that it would be available one of you newer products.  I'm going to be frustrated if i spent money to replace the HS100s with the KP200s and the feature is not available as this is the only job of these outlets.

Implementing the offset timer will eventually be made available to the KP200, but there is no time frame of a release as of now.

That's disappointing since FAQ #2702 (linked below), which was last updated in 11/2019, states that "Note: you need to wait for the new firmware update to use those two new features (referring to offset and fade), and the new firmware would release within this year in succession."  I read 'within this year' as by the end of 2019.

In seeing all the potential release dates they do constantly change. It can very such as a list minute bug identified or a reallocation of resources for another project.

Thanks for the input Tony. I guess I'll have to manually adjust my longitude within the app to force an offset.

Do you happen to have Alexa? If so, you can create an offset schedule that way in the meantime.
