If I got home at 2 a.m last night, is it possible to say 'I was home at 2 a.m last night'?
Yes, but they have different meanings. The first implies that you were not home before you got home. The second is just a statement of fact. Also, while many people would say "last night" to include 2 AM, it was technically "this morning".
Bhai said "when reaching home, we can say 'We are home"
Are you trying to create an alibi, Winwin?
What did you do?
(Edit) Bhai said "when reaching home, we can say 'We are home"
Oh, I see.
In what context do want to use these phrases? For forensic reasons, you will not get off by claiming that you could not have killed someone in the house at 2am because you weren't at home then - because you had just reached home at 1.59am and hadn't yet entered the house.

But this is all hypothetical. We don't know how the concepts of time and place are to be practically applied. A certain application might need a specialist definition.
