    What’s the best way to get the dahua cameras to stick to DST? Also the Annie cube (Hikvision clones). Every time I change the time it goes back to 1 hour past. What settings work best?

    I’m able to change everything. I just can’t get the time to stick. It defaults back to one hour.

    Again, this is a problem that happens with China hacked cameras. Can you change the ntp server?

    Put in an NTP server for your time zone. Refer to the thread I posted above.

    I saw the post. Is there a good place to find ntp for my area?

    I was/am of the understanding NTP itself does not communicate DST adjustment, e.g. does not say when Spring forward, Fall back occurs.

    Did you try changing the DST adjustment settings in the camera?

    If your camera does not allow for DST then you have to change your time zone to one that matches.
    I and in NJ and a few of my cameras do not let me set DST so on those cameras only instead of using Eastern Time (-5:00) I have to use Atlantic Time (-4:00) and then change back in November.
