    Most probably rate 1 is day. Best way is to make sure you see rate 1 advancing in the eco7 day rate hours between , say , 9 am and midnight.
    If you happen to have an old analog 24 hr timerswitch then the day/night could be anywhere in the 24 hrs and needs careful observation.
    Older digital meters are drifting out of time.They do not maintain correct time and I have seen them as much 4 hrs out. Ampy type meters show the time on the meter, so check if that is out because that will change the time the day/night are switched
