    Hi Sarah,

    I've been playing with this on my display by setting the time manually and adjusting my schedule.

    It seems like the behavior is what you would expect when talking about how we measure time, with the exception that it won't end the schedule before it begins.  In other words, 12:00am gets treated as 00:00 on a given day unless that would cause the end time to come before the start time.

    To elaborate a bit further:
    - Aug 21 3:00pm to Aug 21 12:00am - At 11:58pm I was within window, the window ended at midnight.
    - Aug 21 3:00pm to Aug 22 12:00am - At 11:58pm I was within window, it still ended 2 mins later at midnight.
    - Aug 21 3:00pm to Aug 23 12:00am - Now I'm back within window after midnight, since it's the 22nd.

    In other words, for your use case, you should be fine to use either, but when in doubt I would err on the side of "midnight is 00:00".

    Cheers,

    Patrick
