Sapling’s IP Clock System is unlike your typical clock system. This synchronized clock system is powered by (PoE) or Power-over-Ethernet, receiving power and data through a CAT5 cable, there is no need for an additional outlet. This system allows for easy set up and operation for any user and has a number of unique features that make it stand out among the rest.
One such feature is that each clock has its own built-in web interface. The web interface allows a user to adjust many different settings or enable certain features on the clock. For example, a user can choose to set the time to display in 12 or 24 hour mode (digital clocks only), automatically update for Daylight Saving Time, both domestically and internationally and even give that particular clock a name, for example its location in a facility.
Features such as the brightness option can help companies and organizations become more energy efficient. For example, if you work in a school, it’s not a 24/7 operation. A school’s peak hours are typically between 7 a.m and 5 p.m., that’s a ten hour time frame in which the school building has a constant flow of traffic, with dozens of eye balls gazing at the clocks at one point or another. In those peak hours, the brightness is typically set to the high setting for maximum visibility. After school lets out for the day, the clocks aren’t being viewed as much. To conserve energy and money, Sapling gives a user the ability to adjust the brightness to medium, low or off (digital clocks only) after peak hours. This helps a school or any other type of facility save money over the life of the clock system. A user can also establish a brightness schedule for all the digital clocks within a facility.
Another feature that the IP clock system has is the ability to send email alerts on any changes or disruptions that occur. The email notification is sent right to the operator of the clock system if any power failures, major time changes, NTP/SNTP server synchronization issues, display faults or mechanical failures happen.
Sapling prides itself on being the forefront of technology, and our IP clock system, with its web interface allows custom ability of many settings (Brightness Settings, automatic Daylight Saving Time updates, email alerts, etc.) to help your company propel into the future.
