Dear Christophe, 

Netro IFTTT returns local time for convenience, where the time zone is determined by your device address. The API returns

1. date: local date

2. start_time: local start time, please use only the time part and ignore the date and time zone part if any. 

3. end_time: local end time, similar with above. 

We have checked the API, it seems OK. For example, you have a schedule on 2020/09/10, from 06:00am to 06:28am, the API returns:

{"device":"Pontaillac ","zone":1,"date":"2020-09-10","start_time":"2020-09-10T06:00:00.000Z","end_time":"2020-09-10T06:28:00.000Z","source":"SMART","status":"EXECUTED","meta":{"id":94827648,"timestamp":1599710400}}

Please note that "2020-09-10T06:28:00.000Z" is not UTC time, only use the "06:28:00" part, although system may add date and timezone part automatically. 

Please let us know if you have more concerns.

Please find below my log of IFTTT for the event you refer to.
As you can see the end time does not match with the time the event has been reported at (8:28 am vs. 6:28 am) as mentioned in my first post.

Please advice,

Could you let us know which applet are you using now, such that our R&D could invest the problem further? If could be IFTTT converts the time incorrectly.

The name of the applet is "If a watering schedule of Pontaillac/Puit is finished, then report start time to Jeedom" by kcofoni. Not sure it is public since I did this simple composition by myself. What I tried to explain you, using the IFTT (If Then This Then That) formalism, is that I composed this applet the following way :

- test condition from the IFTTT Netro service "schedules"
- then do a http GET request using the IFTTT Webhooks service "Make a web request", using the start time as a value in the http request provided

Is that clearer ? Please advice.

If you did the applet by your self, please use the time part only. i.e. once you the start_time, you should ignore the date and timezone part.
