Thanks for the detailed feedback. That should give me what I need to find the problem.
Regarding the Timezone settings.
The Python program is now using the system time and tz setting from the Pi. The plan is to eliminate the Options setting but I am still finding places where it is used such as in the UI and I think possibly Samer’s mobile app.
Another problem is that anyone who uses Ray’s pre-configured image file still needs to do some system set up on the Pi to set the correct time zone and possibly expand the partition size of the SD card.
