STEPS:

1. go to "Mode"

2. change to "Scheduled"

3. select "Add Schedule"

4. try to set a Start time before midnight (e.g. 10pm) and a Stop time after midnight (e.g. 8am)

5. observe an error

* in Chrome: the time dropdown shows a red X

* in Android: there is an error message that Start cannot be after Stop

 

EXPECTED:

I can see an arming schedule for overnight

 

COMMENTS

This limitation reproduces both in the Android app and the Windows Chrome session. I can't find a workaround. It seems just like a very poor design decision.

simple fix ... the app/prgm has never gone thru midnight/date change.

 

So break the schedule into two parts...

10 pm to 1159pm( goes thu entire min ), next day 12 midnight to 8am

This is a good workaround, which I will use, though the underlying UI limitation still needs to be fixed.

 

Thank you
