    Heads up, clocks go back at 2am Sunday morning.

    So 2am becomes 1am, and if on Octopus Go, you should get an extra hour charging at cheap rate.

    To add to the above, if charging using Economy 7, or Economy 10, don't change anything, as the off-peak times for both of these tariffs are always set to GMT. For example, our E7 off-peak period is from ~00:00 to ~07:00 GMT, all year around.

    It catches one of the time switches I have out every year, the one that controls our hot water boost. That time switch is a "smart" one, that automatically adjusts for the BST/GMT change. I then have to manually re-programme it every time it does this, because we're on E7. One day I'll get around to replacing it with a dumb time switch that doesn't cause this hassle twice a year.

    It would be nice if TeslaFi et al had an option for each timer to adjust or not.
