How to change the date and time on a Paradigm Architectural Control Processor (P-ACP)


The date and/or time is incorrect on my Paradigm Architectural Control Processor (P-ACP). How can I change it?


If your P-ACP is in a system with a time server, such as Net3 Conductor you should change the time there instead. All Paradigm Server systems have a Net3 Conductor. If you're unsure contact ETC Technical Services and we can help determine which route to use.

At the P-ACP:

  1. Press the check mark to enter Main Menu
  2. Scroll to Arch Setup, and press the check mark
  3. Scroll to Date/Time/Location and press the check mark.
  4. Select "Change Settings" and press the check mark
  5. Use the scroll wheel, check mark, and number pad to make the necessary changes, then press the < button multiple times until you're at the main screen of the P-ACP.

From the P-ACP Web UI for versions 4.0.0 or higher:

  1. On a computer connected to the lighting network, open up a web browser and enter the IP address of the P-ACP. The default is In a multi-processor system you only need to change the time on the first processor, and the changes will propagate to the rest of the system.
  2. Click on the blue Menu  button in the top left corner and choose "Setup"
  3. Select the Date/Time tab, then enter the correct information.
  4. Close your web browser.
