Seems to be another weird thing since 2.5.0 update.

 

I had the same schedule for nearly a year and it worked fine: I have the system armed from midnight to 9AM every day.

 

But now I surprisingly found Monday is turned off for no reason. Then I re-check Monday and save, monday is still empty.

 

Anyone else seeing recurrent schedule being inconsistent?

 

See screenshot. I tapped Monday then save in fig 2, but monday still nothing... I even tried to modify the time from 12:00 to 12:05, but the old schedule (12-9) is stuck and monday is skipped...

I tried a few things and found a weird workaround:

 

1. Modify existing schedule to be 12:01AM - 9AM -- didn't work. Schedule stuck with 12-9 and monday skipped.

 

2. Remove existing schedule and add a new 12-9 for every day -- same problem: all days set except Monday.

 

3. Remove and add new 12:01-9AM schedule -- it works!

 

Looks like the engineers had a boundary condition bug that whole hours, maybe especially midnight, are not handled properly. How lame...

 

It looks like as long as I avoid whole hours around midnight (always do 11:59PM or 12:01AM), it seems to work.
