NOTE: If you’re looking for troubleshooting tips about DST clock changes, or are interested in preventive tips on how to ensure your system changes automatically, view our DST support page.
This November marks the end of daylight saving time (DST). At 2:00 a.m. Sunday, November 5, 2023, nearly everyone in the U.S. and Canada will turn back their clocks one hour (spring ahead, fall back), resulting in earlier sunrises in the morning and sunsets in the evening.
Of course, the thought of DST isn’t quite so pleasant for school maintenance personnel who must visit each room’s clock over the weekend and manually wind it back so that all clocks on campus are showing the correct time Monday morning. It can be a costly, time-consuming nightmare – especially with many schools already operating with limited maintenance staff.
For schools using the Primex OneVue Sync™ synchronized time system, however, the change away from DST is essentially a nonevent. The system automatically adjusts and synchronizes every clock on campus to the proper time with no human intervention required, saving hours of work and expense. Not to mention eliminating excuses for tardiness because the clocks were off.
If you’re not familiar with it, the Primex OneVue Sync solution uses a Bluetooth® Low Energy network or a specialized 72 MHz transmission frequency to synchronize all clocks to a single time source. As a result, there are no panicked calls from faculty saying the clock in their room is off, no students lingering in the hallways, and your maintenance staff is free to take care of other, more important tasks.
