Why is there a time shift between the RTC time and the local time in the iQunet Sensor Dashboard?

 

The RTC clock (on the right side) is controlled by the Linux kernel (cfr http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/cosmic/man1/timedatectl.1.html).

This clock is expressed as a “UTC+00:00” time (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_8601).

The local time on the left side has a time offset determined by your web browser. This time shift depends on the UTC zone of your current location and will off course change if you and your computer change time zones.

 

As long as the RTC time is correct for the “UTC+00:00” time zone, this time shift has no influence on the operation of the iQunet Server since the Server doesn’t take these local time zones into account.
