Date & Time

One option is to disable time from being displayed in the camera at all. You generally do this under OSD settings. If you do wish time to be displayed in the image, you need to set the following:
  • Usually under Basic/System -> General -> Date & Time
  • NTP Server: Set to TimeBox IP address (usually 192.168.88.100)
  • DST: Set appropriate settings for your Timezone.
    • e.g. British Summer Time begins at 01:00 GMT on the last Sunday of March and ends at 01:00 GMT (02:00 BST) on the last Sunday of October
