On the 'Location' tab you should set your timezone. You do not need to set the time itself within Vera. Vera automatically synchronizes the time using an online service each time Vera is powered on. Note that this means if you turn on Vera without an internet connection, or if you do not set the timezone, any timers you create may not work as expected.
Vera activates an event at sunrise and sunset, which you can use to trigger actions (see the 'Event' tab). To calculate sunrise/sunset, Vera needs to know the time, your timezone, and your location's longitude/latitude. Vera has the longitude and latitude of most cities in the world. You can select your country, region, and city using the pull-down menus, and Vera will get the longitude/latitude automatically. If your city is not listed, choose the nearest city or specify the longitude/latitude manually.
You can discover your location's precise longitude/latitude by visiting maps.google.com to search for your address, then clicking the 'Link' button there. Your location's coordinates will be contained within the 'Paste link' field.
