Low: Advisory
1.0
Issue
Starting in 2007, the Daylight Saving Time rules in North America modify so that clocks change on the second Sunday in
March and the first Sunday in November. Prior to 2007, the Daylight Saving Time rules in North America stated that clocks
change on the first Sunday in April and the last Sunday in October.
Also starting in 2007, several Bosch Security Systems, Inc. products will not adjust their internal time on the correct dates
because they will follow the old Daylight Saving Time rules.
Refer to Section 2.0 Resolution for the affected products and the actions you should take to ensure that these products have the
correct time starting on November 4, 2007.
2.0
Resolution
For the products described in the following sections, take the recommended corrective actions before March 11, 2007 to
ensure a smooth transition to the new Daylight Saving Time rules.
•
For Intrusion products, refer to Section 2.1 Intrusion Products on page 1.
•
For Fire products, refer to Section 2.2 Fire Products on page 3.
•
For CCTV products, refer to Section 2.3 CCTV Products on page 3.
•
For Systems products, refer to Section 2.4 Systems Products on page 4.
For additional information, refer to each product’s installation guide.
2.1
Intrusion Products
2.1.1
GV2 Series/G Series/D7000/D9000 Control Panels (including B-style panels)
These control panels adjust for Daylight Saving Time by using skeds. Modify the sked so that it conforms with the new
Daylight Saving Time rules.
2.1.2
Easy Series Control Panels
Easy Series control panels with v2.5 firmware default to follow the new Daylight Saving Time rules.
For Easy Series control panels with v2.x firmware earlier than v2.5:
•
If configuring the control panel locally, select Expert Programming Item 121 and change the parameter from 1 (North
America prior to 2007) to 9 (USA after 2006).
•
If configuring the control panel using RPS, go to System → Daylight Saving Time Operation and change the
parameter from North America to North America 2007 and beyond.
For Easy Series control panels in the USA and Canada with v1.x firmware:
•
Select Expert Programming Item 121 and change the parameter from 1 (North America) to 0 (No time adjustment).
The control panel requires manual time adjustment to follow the new Daylight Saving Time rules.
2.1.3
Conettix D6600/D6100 Communications Receivers/Gateways
For the Conettix D6600 and D6100 Communications Receivers/Gateways, the date and time is configured manually using
either the Conettix D6200 Programming/Administration Software or the unit’s front panel keypad. These units do not
perform an automatic Daylight Saving Time adjustment.
2.1.4
D6500 Central Station Receivers
Manually configure the date and time using the Time Set toggle switch near the top of the MPU card. These units do not
perform an automatic Daylight Saving Time adjustment.
2.1.5
D6000 Central Station Receivers
Manually configure the date and time using the CLK/CAL toggle switch on the back of the display panel faceplate. These
units do not perform an automatic Daylight Saving Time adjustment.
2.1.6
D6412/D4412 Control Panels
Disable the Auto Adjust for Daylight Saving Time function. Instead, manually change the control panel’s internal time
using either RPS or [CMD][45] from the keypad.
When using keypad programming to disable Daylight Saving Time, do not accidentally disable
keypad programming too.
2.1.7
D2012/D2112/D2212/D2012U/D2412/D2412U/D2812/D2812U Control Panels
These control panels are not affected by the new Daylight Saving Time rules because they do not contain an internal clock or
calendar.
2.1.8
D4112/D6112 Control Panels
These control panels are not affected by the new Daylight Saving Time rules because they do not contain an internal clock or
calendar.
2.1.9

panel’s internal time using [CMD][45] from the keypad.
2.1.10
DS7060/DS7080i Series/DS7090/DS7090i/DS7090TM/DS7090TMi/
DS7100/DS7400 Series Control Panels
These control panels do not provide an option for automatic Daylight Saving Time adjustment. If the control panel connects
to WDSRP software, enable WDSRP’s Set Time Automatically function (located in Utilities → System Preferences). For
control panels configured to connect automatically to WDSRP, the time corrects upon establishing the first connection after
the time change.
2.1.11
D8112 Series Control Panels
These control panels do not provide an option for automatic Daylight Saving Time adjustment. Manually change the control
panel’s internal time using [CMD][45] from the keypad.
2.1.12
Safecom® SC9000/SC9001 Central Station Computers with ST1000 Software
The SC9000 and SC9001 are DOS PCs running ST1000 software. Use the ST1000 software to manually adjust the time and
date.
2.1.13
Safecom® SC4000/SC3100/SC2104 Radio Communicators
These radio communicators are not affected by the new Daylight Saving Time rules because they do not contain an internal
clock or calendar.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/933360/.
2.3.7
BVIP Video Encoders and Decoders
You can configure BVIP video encoders and decoders in two different modes. In the first mode, BVIP receives its date and
time from a time server application on the network that automatically adjusts the time settings. Two time lines appear for
archived video recorded during the time overlap when transitioning from Daylight Saving Time to Standard Time.
In the second mode, the BVIP uses its internal real-time clock, which began using an internal editable Daylight Saving Time
table in firmware version 2.50. Bosch Security Systems, Inc. recommends that you upgrade to the latest version available
from the software download Web page. You can edit the Daylight Saving Time table configuration using the browser
interface or Configuration Manager tool.
2.4

Bosch Security Systems, Inc.’s Systems products receive their date and time from the connected PC’s Microsoft Windows
clock time. Microsoft has released a patch that makes Windows follow the new Daylight Saving Time rules. For more
information, refer to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/933360/. Install this patch before installing any Daylight Saving time
product upgrades or patches.
2.4.1
Readykey Traditional Controllers
Readykey Traditional controllers connected to a PC for administration synchronize to the PC clock at midnight. Because
Daylight Saving Time adjusts at 02:00, the controller’s internal clock does not reflect the time change. This affects door
unlock and access level schedules. Use the controller software to manually set all controllers.

2.4.2
Vision
Controllers connected to Vision software for PC administration synchronize to the PC clock at midnight. Because Daylight
Saving Time adjusts at 02:00, the controller’s internal clock does not reflect the time change. This affects door unlock and

ReadykeyX
ReadykeyX controllers connected to a PC for administration synchronize to the PC clock at midnight. Because Daylight
Saving Time adjusts at 02:00, the controller’s internal clock does not reflect the time change. This affects door unlock and
access level schedules. Use the controller’s software to manually set the controllers.
1.
From the Main screen, click Navigator→Hardware.
2.
Select the controller.
3.
Click to select Synchronize all Controller Clocks.
This sends the corrected date and time to all controllers connected to the Master controller.
4.
Perform Steps 1 through 3 for each Master controller.
2.4.4
ReadykeyPRO 5.10.310 and ReadykeyPRO 5.12.012
The ReadykeyPRO database includes its own time zones that act independently from the time zones in the host PC’s
operating system. When the operating system is updated to adjust for the new Daylight Saving Time dates, these changes
conflict with the ReadykeyPRO time zones. As a result, ReadykeyPRO reacts to Scheduler and Time Zone functions at the
wrong time. A DST Utility is available from the Bosch Security Systems, Inc. website at: http://www.boschsecurity.us/dst/.
This utility allows the database to synchronize with the PC clock without conflicts. Manual clock synchronization might be
necessary to set the correct time in the downstream devices.
System Time Synchronization
2.4.5
1.
Minimize all open windows.
2.
Double-click the Communication Server icon next to the time in the Windows tool tray.
3.
Click the Commands button in the upper-left corner of the box.
