Is this correct? Some of my indexes are presenting a really strange date compared to the time stamp but I think the devices they are coming from my be in a different TZ. My next question would be how to convert to EST.

The minus sign is covered by %z so all you need is TIME_FORMAT=%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%S%:z.

I would add use %F and %T, so %FT%T%:z
