CE smart app and adjusting sunset time

I’ve been googling the answer for this and can’t find an answer. I’m using the CE smart app to turn on a few lights and hand a scenario set to come on at sunset.
They come on correctly according to our areas time zone except our house gets dark about 45 minutes earlier. Can I adjust the sunset time minus a number of minutes?
Thanks in advance

Try to adjust the city location that's in a different time zone?

I have th Globe App which is similar and I couldn't find an option. Philips Hue let's you adjust time before Sunset so that's nice.

Try the TuyaSmart or SmartLife app. These are just generic ESP8266 devices and several apps have support for them. Then you can use IFTTT with that to trigger the lights before sunset.

You can even flash em to Tasmota and control them via MQTT
