I am importing Octopus Agile data into EMONCMS into a PHPTimeseries feed directly. I have setup a dummy input and then created the feed from it. ( I am bulk loading data in the future so I can see the price changes during the day )
I am using -
http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/emoncms/feed/insert.json?id=44&time=" + timevalue[i] + "&value=" + costvalue[i] + "&apikey=....
timevalue is unixtime and UTC.
importing via a python script using requests.
It loads directly into the feed fine.
The csv output from the feed ( via the graph) compared with the raw input from Agile shows ( a sample ) -

The graph display is showing in UTC zone but the Agile App is showing in BST zone.
When I import via the input ( every 30 minutes in the past) Emoncms appears to convert to BST - so is this happening in the logic between an input and a feed?
Any advice on what I should do - should I convert prior to loading into the feed? I want to input values in the future not in the past hence the input field does not really work for me.
