This is Eric from Backstreet Surveillance. Today we're going to go through a video on setting your time and date on your NVR. This is pretty straightforward. As we go through this, what we do is we're going to click here, and we're going to go into set up once we click on the start button, and then from there, we're going to go to system, and we're going to go to general, and then under general, you have what we see is the date and time here. Now, in order to set your date, you've got a calendar function here, and as you can see, you've got your arrows that you can set your month and also your year, and then in addition to that, you can also click on a day to set your date, and in this case, this is going to be August 27th, 2020.
Now, down here, to set your time, it's pretty straightforward. In this case, we'll just set this to 09, and then we're going to set this to 24, and we're going to click this, and, of course, this is AM. So since we're on the 12-hour, we have AM or we have PM that we can select. Your date format is going to be one of the following: year, year, month, month, day, day, or, day, month, year, and typically, we'll use month, day, and year. If you want to go to military time, you can switch this, and then that will go to the 24-hour time if you want to use that, and some do.
In your time zone, this is Greenwich Mean Time. This is the same time as the UK or Britain, and GMT minus five is typically East Coast Time. Central Time will be GMT minus six, and Mountain Time, where we're at, this is GMT minus seven. If you live in the Pacific time zone, that would be GMT minus eight. Okay? In addition to that, we have what's called enable national time servers, and so if you decide to do this, you'd click this here, and this would override the time that you put in manually, and there are three servers that are available; there's your Windows time-server, typically Microsoft, you have your time-server from the government, and then, of course, you got your pool.ntp.org, which comes out of Europe, or you can have user-defined. Now, if you decide to use this, be aware you must be connected to the internet in order to pull that time, and some people do not, so typically they want to just set it manually as we're looking up here, and leave it at that.
In addition to that, most of the United States has what we call daylight savings time, and if this is unchecked, it's not going to use daylight savings time. Typically, if you're living in Arizona or Hawaii, you will not use this, but the rest of the country has been mandated to use it, and usually, this is going to be one hour ahead. The week that it starts, this is going to be March, and since it's the 8th this year, it's going to be on the second week. This always begins on a Sunday, and it always begins at 2:00 in the morning. This year, it's going to end November 1st, and so it's going to be November, the first week, again, it's going to be Sunday, and 2:00 in the morning. If you decide to use your date format instead, what you would do is you'd go back, and then you would choose the 8th, and then to end this, you would go to November, and then you'd go to November 1st at 2:00 in the morning, and then from there, you would hit apply, and this will save your time settings. This is how you set your time and your date for your NVR. Thanks for your time.
