I have 6 Philips Hue bulbs with the new Apple HomeKit-compatible bridge that I’ve been happily using for a few months now. I have routines setup via the Hue app to make the lights come on and off at certain times. Since the change to Daylight Savings last weekend they’re now off by an hour and I can’t figure out how to fix. Double-checked the Hue app and Timezone is set to Auckland, I see no controls to manually set the time or anything — anyone else having this issue or know how to fix it?

Yup, all up to date.Driving me nuts. Might have to do a full reset but doesn’t feel like I should have to.

Did you ever get this sorted? I have the same problem, turning lights on at sunset but they come on an hour early.

Yes, I forgot I had turned on a “presence mimicking” mode which made the on/off times vary a few minutes every day. Turned it off and everything worked ok.
