Sapling’s IP Clock System – How it Operates

In today’s culture, the only thing advancing quicker than technology is our society’s desire to understand and utilize that technology to produce the most efficient results for business’ and individuals’ alike. Constant advancements in technology are not only expected, but required. Everyone is looking to foster it individually or within their company in order to achieve maximum operational efficiency for employees as well as customers. The synchronized clock system industry is technologically advanced; one example of this is the arrival of the IP clock system. This system is one of the industry’s highest achievements.

Sapling’s IP clock system encompasses very sophisticated technology that can produce many beneficial results. Within the IP clock system, each clock is powered by PoE, or Power over Ethernet, which means IP clock systems are able to receive power and data through a CAT5 cable. Continuously, each clock maintains the ability to receive its time from a (S)NTP (Network Time Protocol) time server, therefore, a master clock is not necessary, making this system more cost effective.

Another benefit to implementing an IP clock system in any type of facility is the web interface feature. Each individual clock has a web interface built-in, along with its own personal IP address. This allows users to operate and adjust the settings of the clock(s) from anywhere with a network connection. All a user needs to do is open up a web browser, type in the IP address of the clock you’d like to adjust the settings on and Sapling’s easy-to-use web interface will load. From the comfort of your home, a user can adjust the time display (12 or 24 hour mode), DST setting and the level of brightness the time is displayed in (digital clocks only).

Along with that, the brightness schedule feature can help companies become more energy efficient. For example, a school has its peak hours between 7 AM and 7 PM, a twelve hour time frame with a constant flow of teachers, students and staff. During peak hours, having the brightness on a higher setting is easier to view for everyone within the classrooms and hallway. In the evening, the clocks are not being viewed as much therefore the brightness level could be lowered. The brightness schedule feature allows for energy and money conservation.

Knowledge of the application of any technology, including IP clock systems, is extremely valuable for an organization. For companies wishing to succeed, installing a Sapling IP clock system should become an imperative action for all the benefits it provides. IP clock systems save money, help maintain environmentally friendly/sustainable business practices and raise productivity around the office with everyone operating on the exact same time. Technology has become highly developed in today’s culture; the more time and energy invested in its advancement by a company, the higher chance of success.
