Setup Daylight Saving Time on time clocks

DLST, also called Daylight Saving Time, is a system to prescribe local time in order to save energy. The unified time adopted during the system date is called “DLST”. Usually, the time will be one hour forward in summer. It can make people sleep early and get up early. It can also reduce lighting to save power. In autumn, the time will be recovered. The regulations are different in different countries. At present, nearly 110 countries adopt DLST.

“Notice: Only some models have DLST function. If you need it, please contact our support team.”

Daylight Saving Time option can be found on time date interface if the device has DLST function: Set DLST as ON and you will be able to choose from 2 DLST Date Modes.

Date Mode 1 (MM-DD HH:MM)


For example, if DLST starts on every April 1st 8:00am and ends on every August 1st 8:00am, you would enter 04-01 08:00 as Start, 08-01 08:00 as End.

Press “OK(M/<-)” to save setting. Press “ESC” to exit without saving

Date Mode 2 (MM-WS-WK HH:MM)

MM: Month, from 1 to 12 where 1 represents January and 2 for February and so on.

WS: Number of weeks, 1-6 where 1 represents first week, 2 means second week and so on.

WL: Week, 0 to 6, where 0 represents Sunday, 1 represents Monday and so on.

For example, DLST starts on the second Sunday in March at 2:00am and ends on the first Sunday in November at 2:00am. These models should display as follows:


Press “OK(M/<-)” to save setting. Press “ESC” to exit without saving.
