[Synchronize with NTP server] - The camera will synchronize with the NTP server time.

If [Auto-Setting of NTP Server] is enabled, camera time is automatically synchronized with the time of the NTP server at the address obtained from the DHCP server. In order to enable this setting, you must change [Network] > [IPv4 Address Setting Method] to [Auto (DHCP)] To select a particular NTP server, disable [Auto- Setting of NTP Server], and then enter the IP address or host name of the NTP server in [NTP Server].

[Synchronize with NTP broadcast] - The camera will synchronize with the NTP server time. The camera will synchronize time with NTP broadcasts received from the NTP server.

[Synchronize with computer time] - The camera will synchronize with the date and time of the computer currently accessing the camera. The time zone will also be selected automatically

  1. [Time Zone] - Select from the list the appropriate time difference from the Greenwich Mean Time.
  2. [Daylight Saving Time] - Select [Enable] to automatically adjust the daylight saving time according to the time zone or [Disable] not to automatically adjust the daylight saving time.

Note

  • If [Synchronize with computer time] is selected, after clicking [Apply], [Setting Method] will change to [Set manually].

  • If [Synchronize with computer time] is selected, the city at the top of the list in the same time zone offset is selected. If the wrong time zone is selected, set the correct time zone manually.

  • If [Synchronize with NTP server] is selected and the IP address of the NTP server is incorrect or a connection with the NTP server cannot otherwise be established, the date and time will not be changed.

  • The camera's NTP broadcast mode does not support IPv6.

  • If the [Time Zone] setting is changed, the date and time display will update automatically according to the specified time zone.
