I maintain alot of Tecom / Concept sites that have alot of autodoors and such, which are very dependent on the correct time. Its such a hassle at the moment, because I manually dial into each site and adjust the time manually.
All hell breaks loose when I forget a site or 2.
I wondering what does everybody else does, because I sure there is a easier way.

I thought you could tell Tecom to automatically adjust for DST?
Tecom Challenger allows for DST, however there was a bug with V8.76 where the panel changes on the end date from 3:00am to 2:00am but the change doesn't get stored in memory and as a result continues to change each time the clock reaches 3:00am.
The problem has been fixed since.

t has been 10 years since I had anything to do with them, but I figured there probably was something like that in them. I do think I had to set it up on a site with 32 doors and time locking all those years ago.
The Inner Range Concept 1000/2000 panels don't have the ability to change for Daylight Saving. Although, if programmed as Inner Range Fast dialler format, control rooms could correct the time automatically at the next signal.
When I was still in the industry, the Concept 3000/4000 didn't have the feature, either. They may have added this feature by now?
We used to do what you do and remotely correct most of them via dialup. On some time-based access control systems we used to just include an one hour buffer.

DLS Clock adjustment has been (working) in the C3/4k since version 3 if memory serves me correctly.

Program 2 diaries, one for the start of DLS, one for the end.
There is a function of Skip subtract 1 Hour, this will allow the system to automatically skip subtracting 1 hour.
IE Diary goes valid to subtract 1 hour, the function of the diary will AUTOMATICALLY change the diary function to Skip subtract 1 hour, this stops the loop effect of the clock going back to 2am every time the clock reaches 3am.
One little thing to remember, for a diary to go valid, Text must be entered in Line 1, position one of the diary message. I always program the diary message as follows
this allways allows the diary to go valid.
