New Day Light Savings Time Changes


Senior Member
Have you heard about the changes to Daylight Savings Time (DST) in 2007?

The Federal Government has mandated changes to its DST policy that effectively increase the observance of Daylight Savings Time by nearly a month in 2007.

DST changes to:
2 a.m. on the Second Sunday in March
2 a.m. on the First Sunday of November.

Although embraced by labor and industry alike, these changes will obviously create some challenges in the realm of computing, electronics and automated control. Among these industries reside countless articles of embedded firmware that have been programmed to the previous standard.

Likewise, the newly proposed and soon to be enacted changes, will affect many users of the ELK M1 Security and Automation Controller, as DST is generally programmed for automatic adjustment.

We have received a massive number of questions about the fix for the new DST.

The latest version of the M1 software upgrade, version 4.4.6 and later, has the new DST time adjustment and it is a FREE upgrade for all M1 and EZ8 users.
The new ELK wireless receiver, M1XRFG2, is essentially finished beta testing with the testers reporting excellent operation. We are awaiting production quantities. EHX will be a big show.
