Random time offset seems wrong.

Here's the log for my sequence to turn off light at 01:00 ~ 02:00. Instead of turning off the light in this period, it seems to turn off the light during 11:00 ~ 12:00. I've set global offset to be -7 and the current time shows correct local time for me. 

Sequence log details

TurnOffDiningRoomLight was triggered on Fri 19 Jul at 11:29:01.

The following steps ran:

  • random_time - a:7:{i:0;s:1:"1";i:1;s:1:"2";i:2;s:1:"3";i:3;s:1:"4";i:4;s:1:"5";i:5;s:1:"6";i:6;s:1:"7";}, 01, 00
  • Call the IFTTT event TurnOffDiningRoomLight

Hello, yes it looks like there was an issue with the code for the random time trigger and it was adjusting for your timezone in the wrong direction (ie +7 instead of -7).

This should be resolved now, but I notice you've disabled this sequence. You'll need to enable it again for it to work.

Let me know if you encounter any other issues.
