    Wink Activehome software - dusk/dawn settings

    Will Activehome allow me to program say 'dusk - 1 hour' or 'dusk + 15mins' as switching times, or am I limited to whatever is calculated as the dusk time with no additional field where I can add/subtract a modifier to the calculated times? (I notice that this functionality is available in the US Pro version, and was hoping it might also be available in the current UK version).

    I hope you can make sense of what I'm asking and look forward to your feedback.

    Cheers....

    I've cracked it with help from Let's Automate.

    At their suggestion, I downloaded a copy of the activehome software from x10.com.

    I've found that the facility does exist to add/subtract times from the calculated dawn/dusk times.

    I'll get myself a PC interface now to control my x10 light modules. Using activehome should be a much slicker solution for programming than constantly adjusting the settings on a mini-timer to account for the nights drawing in...
