Within one organization, VsaaS platform products may be used in different time zones. The standard Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) is used to standardize the display of dates and times.
The following date and time format is used:
In the server-side of the platform, dates and times are stored in UTC+0:00.
In the user-side of the system, the display of dates and times is based on the time zones specified on the users' devices. This functionality is implemented in:
Web Administrator Interface
Web User Interface
This should be taken into account when multiple users are working in different time zones simultaneously. For example, if a camera is added and configured in one time zone while the operator is in another time zone, the displayed time on the camera and the operator's timeline may not match.
To avoid such situations, it is recommended to indicate the UTC time zone in the camera's name.
The first user creates a camera at 11:00 in the UTC+3:00 time zone.
The creation date of the camera is transmitted to and stored in the platform's server-side as UTC+0:00. Therefore, the camera's creation time corresponds to 8:00.
The second user, in the UTC+5:00 time zone, views the camera created by the first user. In this case, the camera's creation time is displayed to the second user as 13:00.
