This section lists the settings found in the Date and time page of the Sharp Portal. Use the Date and time page to configure how you want to configure the internal clock of the SharpV.

To navigate to the Date and time page, click Configuration > General settings > Date and time.

The following information is displayed:

Select one of the following settings.
  • No synchronization
    The SharpV uses its own clock.
  • NTP server
    Enter the URL of a known time server (for example, The SharpV clock synchronizes with this server on startup and then every hour. You can test the connection at any time by clicking Test connection.
  • Active extension
    Click to synchronize the SharpV clock with the clock on the Security Center server it is connected to. The SharpV clock synchronizes with the Security Center server clock upon connection, then every 24 hours.
    IMPORTANT: Selecting this option has no effect if you are using any of the other extension types (FTP, HTTP, and so on). It can only be used when the active extension type is configured as Security Center (legacy). The active extension is configured on the Configuration > Connectivity > Extension page.
  • LPM protocol
    When you add a SharpV camera to the ALPR Manager using the LPM Protocol, the camera's date and time are automatically synchronized with the LPM Protocol.
    NOTE: By default, LPM protocol is not an available setting. When a SharpV (SharpOS 12.7 and later) is manually added to the ALPR Manager (Security Center 5.8 and later), the LPM protocol is automatically selected as the unit’s extension type and for date and time synchronization.
  • Synchronize with client browser now
    Click to synchronize the date and time with the client machine you are using to connect to the Sharp Portal Portal. The camera performs a one-time synchronization.
    IMPORTANT: Do not synchronize the SharpV clock with the client browser unless you are connecting to the Sharp Portal from the server hosting the ALPR Manager role. If you synchronize clocks with a computer other than the Security Center server, the camera's reads and hits might not have accurate timestamps.

    Selecting the International option displays the date and time in the format: YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS
