Older Active Home (v 1.3) / DST Question

Knowing that the dates for DST are changing in the US, I have been
trying to figure out if I need to do anything (or can do anything) in my
old Active Home setup.

I have a simple setup and only run macros from the CM11A module which is
not connected to my PC. My macros only run in relation to Dawn/Dusk. I
don't have any that are driven by specific times.

Do I need to change anything? It would seem that dawn/dusk does not care
about DST and such. So I would guess not. However, I did have the DST
checkbox checked when I downloaded macros into the CM11A. I have no idea
how the CM11A works so maybe I do have to make some changes.

It seems that the UI of Active Home will permit me to manually enter
dates for begin/end of DST. The values shown today do not correspond to
those shown in my Windows setup (which has already been updated to
reflect the change in DST) so I presume that Active Home does NOT get
its info from Windows - or at least not directly. I'd rather not have to
manually change this year in and out. So if any changes are needed, if
this can be avoided, that would be great!

Thanks for you input/help.
