Surveillance Systems & The Daylight Savings Disaster?

Time and date accuracy for many video systems is notoriously bad, a circumstance we address in this post.

However (or maybe because of this), I have never really considered the impact that US Daylight Saving Time has on a system until this caught my eye:

Specifically these points:

  1. Dual Recordings
  2. No Recordings
  3. Inability to retrieve live/recorded video from clients

seem a bit strong for a) an event that only shifts time one hour, and b) has been a design constraint for computers since the very beginning.

It got me wondering: How big of an issue is DST for your video systems? Are we talking a common problem here? What steps do you take to accommodate for the time change on your video systems?
