Wanting to set the date & time for DST (Daylight Saving Time) on a Dahua XVR / NVR Unit? Have a look at this quick guide for further information and a step by step guide!

Setting date and time on NVR / XVR:

  1. Open the main menu of the NVR / XVR you are working on
  2. Click “System” and the General Tab will open. Now click the “Date & Time” Tab
  3. Set your Time Zone from the Dropdown Menu, along with the display format you’d like it to be shown in
  4. Enable “Daylight Saving Time” by clicking the DST checkbox
  5. Select “Week” as the Type and set the Start Time to the Last Sunday in March at 01:00am
  6. Set the End Time for the Last Sunday in October at 02:00am
  7. Enable “NTP” by clicking the checkbox and set the Server Address as “time.windows.com”. You can use whichever NTP Server you are comfortable with

  2. Tap the 3 dots on the Recorder you are currently working on, then tap “Device Details”
  3. Scroll down the options until you see the “Time Zone” option
  4. Tap “Time Zone”, select your time zone, & enable DST by tapping the slider

    • Start: Last Sunday March 01:00am
    • End: Last Sunday October 02:00am
  6. Tap “Save” in the top right hand corner and that’s it!
