American Time Wi-Fi Network Clocks Now Support International Daylight Saving Time
New capability is the result of global demand for low-maintenance timekeeping solution
Dassel, Minn. — American Time, a market leader in integrated time solutions for education, healthcare, government and manufacturing organizations, announced that its popular Wi-Fi network clocks now support international daylight saving time (DST) changes. The enhancement allows customers around the world to benefit from automatic DST adjustment – regardless of when it begins and ends in their respective country. And because they are wireless, Wi-Fi clocks avoid the concern of differing voltage requirements throughout the world.
Wi-Fi network clocks receive a time signal from an existing Wi-Fi network server, eliminating the need for customers to add infrastructure or incur capital costs associated with more comprehensive timekeeping systems. With automatic updates for DST and an industry-leading, five-year battery life, customers save an enormous amount of time and cost associated with timekeeping maintenance and manual adjustments.
“The worldwide demand for our Wi-Fi clocks is even greater than we expected,” said Tim Leung, engineering manager, American Time. “We launched our Wi-Fi clock product line in January 2014 and initially configured it to U.S. standards. But the response and demand from our international customers have been huge, and so we are quickly expanding our line to benefit them.”
Health care, manufacturing, education and government organizations turn to American Time’s timekeeping solutions to optimize the productivity of their workforce, students and patients, to increase punctuality and to improve business operations.
