Problems with sunrise / sunset in automations

Cupertino, September 15, 2020

After I recently moved, I started all over with all my HomeKit items and automations. I had problems with any setting running only between sunset and sunrise. Not working.

I used automations like this for many years before I moved without problems.

I use Home + v4 to set the automations, if I remove the "condition" of time, the automation works. If the time is set to Sunrise, the automation works. If I split the automation in two and one does Sunset at 23:59 and the other 00:00 until Sunrise, both work!

Has anyone had experience in this and knew a solution?

I use Phillips Hue items, Ikea Trader items and an Apple TV 4K acts as a HomeKit hub.

Any suggestions that would address this would be greatly appreciated.
