Answer:
The probe currently can not take into account different time zones.
The probe will execute on a schedule based on the local clock of the system.
If the system is in EST and you want it to run at 5 am you would set it to 5:00:00.

if the system is on another time zone you would need to do a conversion from 5 AM EST to the local time for that time zone and set the values accordingly.

the format for the time will be in 24 hours format with the such as
HH:MM:SS


if you check the .cfg file after creating this you will see the format such as:
recurrent_event_spec = RRULE:FREQ=DAILY;INTERVAL=1;BYHOUR=05;BYMINUTE=00;BYSECOND=00
