Options to Limit Early Start

I like the idea of 'early start' and in general I think it works well. However, first thing in the morning there is a limit to how early I want the heating to come on, even if it doesn't get up to temperature in time (e.g. very cold mornings). This is because:
- I would rather just live with it being a bit colder than using energy so early (2 hours early) in the morning
- The boiler wakes me up!

I would like there to be a way of preventing heating in a room (other than frost protection) at certain times.

It could be as simple as adding an option under the advanced options (where geofencing is) that you can use to enable / disable early start. This would mean that if a subsequent time block had a higher heat level than current, the heating would only come on earlier if early start was true in this block.

Alternatively, you could create an optional value for early start so you could specify the how much earlier than the required temperature time, early start would be permitted to kick in (e.g. max 1 hour early).
