Daylight Saving

by Casimir Blonski | Mar 08, 2014

It's that time of year again where we receive all sorts of fun service calls of faulty door unlock/relock schedules, gates that aren't behaving as they should, and video that's missing from where it's expected.

That's right, it's Daylight Saving Time again, meaning we set our clocks forward one hour. This begins Sunday, March 9 and ends Sunday, November 2 in 2014, both at 2am.

While we hope you have systems that support automated time synchronization to your NTP server of choice, you may have a legacy system that is updated on a schedule or even worse, updated manually each time change. Please take note of any security systems you have, and feel free to ask us about getting your time changes as automated as possible.

At best, having your time settings off is frustrating enough when just trying to make sense of strange system behavior or event history logs, but at worst, you may wind up with a perfectly clear set of evidence to convict that is inadmissible due to time discrepancies. Don't let that happen to you; contact us today.
