Add the ability to connect to an NTP server or put a button on the front screen which is visible if the camera date/time is more than a few minutes out from that of the viewing device.  A baby camera needs to be moved around the house as the child is moved, so the camera has to be turned off each time.  It takes 30 seconds to synchronize the camera with an android device.

After posting the request for NTP functionality  I noticed that in the latest firmware update there was

New Feature] Enable NTP sync function with server “ntp1.dlink.com” as default

I am on the latest firmware and this doesn't work at the moment.  Obviously someone at DLink has thought about this but like many other features it hasn't actually been translated into reliable working code. 

My router (BT Home Hub 3a) does have a firewall but it does not stop NTP requests outbound.
I have tested ntp1.dlink.com using NTPTool from my home network which does show it as a valid NTP server.

This points to it being an issue on the camera itself.
