Time ToolSync Time Tool Server

Sync Time Server / Service for IP Cameras

Time plays an important part in video surveillance systems.  All devices should be connected to the same clock to synchronize time.  For security concerns, many installations do not allow cameras to directly access to Internet, thus the cameras cannot get the current time or time sync from a Network Time Protocol Server.

The Device NTP allows a PC on the local LAN to become a time server. The application should be installed on a PC and run 24×7.  The PC may also be configured to connect to an NTP time server or Microsoft Windows time service to maintain proper date and time configuration. This program is designed to run on a Windows OS on a PC connected to the same LAN as the 2GIG cameras.

Program Name: DeviceNTPv1.5 Version: 1.5

Operating System Required:  Windows XP, 7, 8, 10

Click here to download the zip file.  [zip “Time_Tool” folder]

To install the application, unzip the file and run the Device NTP v1.5 application.
