Configure the Date and Time Settings on the VIP Vision NVR8PRO6 Video Recorder UI


If you have the VIP Vision NVR8PRO6 Video Recorder and you’re looking to configure the date and time settings manually, this video will show you just that. Here, you’ll learn how to change the date and time formats as well as adjust the Daylight Savings Time and Network Time Protocol settings.


Configuring the date and time of your VIP Vision NVR8PRO6 Video Recorder is quite easy. Simply press the right-click button and choose Main Menu. You will be asked to enter your username and password (bear in mind you should have administrator rights to be granted access) and click ‘System’. Select the General section and you should be able to find the Date & Time tab. From there, you can alter the date and time format, the Daylight Savings Time, and the Network Time Protocol.


The video also demonstrates how you can change date notation from the standard time format (YYYY-MM-DD) to the Australian time format (DD-MM-YYYY). Once you’ve changed the date notation, you can adjust the time format, date separator, and the time zone. You can also adjust the system time manually. Once all of them have been adjusted accordingly, simply click the Save button and the time and date will automatically be updated on the display.


For people who live in areas where they use Daylight Savings Time, this feature can prove quite useful. You can set the DST to ensure the time on the display is always correct. To do this, click the DST and select Week if the DST is based on the day of the week. From there, you can choose the start date and time as well as the time where the DST ends. After configuring these settings, simply click the Apply button and the time on the display will be adjusted automatically.


You can check if the date and time are precise by configuring the Network Time Protocol. Click Apply once more and press OK to go back to the Main Menu. Now that you’ve learned how to configure the Date and Time settings on your VIP Vision NVR8PRO6 Video Recorder, the next step is to figure out how you can convert DAV files into standard file formats for easy video playback. The next video will cover that topic in greater detail.
