LNR200 / LNR300 Series: Setting the system time

  7. Click Apply to save changes.

If your region observes Daylight Savings Time (DST), follow the instructions below to configure your NVR to automatically update the time when the clock updates.

To configure Daylight Savings Time (DST) adjustments:

  1. Right-click on the Live View, and then click Menu.
  2. Click Configuration and then click General.
  3. Click the DST Settings tab.
  4. Check the Enable DST checkbox and configure the following:

    • From: Select the start time for Daylight Savings.
    • To: Select the end time for Daylight Savings.
    • DST Bias: Select the amount of time the clock changes when DST starts and ends.
  5. Click Apply to save changes.
