23rd October

Clocks go back on 28th October

It's that time of year again! The clocks will go back one hour on Sunday 28th October at 2am. You might be wondering what this has got to do with your CCTV system, but if you haven't set your CCTV timezone, your system's time won't change automatically.

It's important to check so that your CCTV footage has the correct time in the event you need to rely on your recording.

It's really easy to check, for Cobra HD-TVI systems you need to go in to Settings - Time - Time Zone - Turn Day Light Savings Time On

For Uniview IP systems you're going to want to go to Menu - System - Time - DST - Enable DST. When you do this, make sure it has been set to the last Sunday in March & the last Sunday in October.

Once you've enabled those settings, you're good to go. Your CCTV footage will change without having to do anything else & you get to enjoy your extra hour!
