Nightlapse needs a start timer

Please add a start timer to the Nightlapse mode.

 

I use the GoPro Hero 6 mountain climbing and we typically are in bed by late afternoon or early evening as we get up a 2am.  Its a pain to have to get up middle of the night when we should be getting some rest to go start the camera.  Starting it too early chews up the batteries, especially when its freezing and battery life is shortened even with an add-on battery pack.

 

The remote is next to useless as well, gave up trying to use it and its battery is either dying early or it won't connect to or operate the camera reliably.
