(APP) Location information for schedules

Why do I need to enable time zone and location information for my schedules to work?

Scheduling in the Bond Home application requires location to be allowed for the Bond Home application to function.  Time zone information needs be enabled in order for schedules to work properly for Twilight activations (dusk, dawn, sunrise, sunset).

Normally, the information that is required for the schedules to operate at the correct time is done when setting up the schedule.  If this needs to change or is not working as expected, please check the following items.
