Power package options

Select your time zone. Then mark each hour of each weekday. Clicking will toggle between red (the screen of your device will be turned off) and green (the screen will be active). You can keep holding your left mouse button to switch multiple hours at once.


This package will not work offline if the device does not have a correct system time, as it's impossible to turn the display on/off according to the set schedule. The device needs at least NTP access to work. The screen will be turned on until the device managed to fetch a somewhat correct system time
