Daylight Savings Time

Postby ComicBookMama » Wed Oct 30, 2019 4:15 pm

Do you reset your beardie's light timer during DST? Right now, I've got the lights on at 7 and off at 9... with DST this weekend, that would mean lights on at 8 and off at 10 if I don't reset them. I'm wondering if Figment would really notice either way...

I don't adjust my light timers for DST .

They are set to come on 6am, and go off 9pm and I never change this. In my location 6am is the latest sunrise in the year ( mid winter ) and 9pm is about the latest end of dusk in mid summer.

It's very easy to adjust for DST on my electronic lamp timer ( I only need press the DST button ) , but I can't be bothered doing so.

Your dragon wont care, Figment will mostly be on her own internal clock and will be taking cues from your activities and natural light coming in.

I normally don't reset timers too much, maybe by 30 minutes or so. They just know the time,
no matter what you set the timer to. LOL
