Limited camera support
Traditional Network Video Recorder (NVR) vendors offer limited support for third-party cameras and devices, making it complicated and costly to update or replace existing setups.
Low storage scalability
Many NVRs offer limited storage capacity and lack flexible scaling options when it comes time to add more disk space.
License and management costs
Multi-site surveillance with Video Management System (VMS) software often comes with recurring license fees and additional hardware integration requirements.
Wide device support without vendor lock-in
Compatible with over 8,000 cameras from 140 brands, Surveillance Station integrates ONVIF Profile S for streaming and Profile G for edge storage.
Support for a wide variety of third-party devices, including I/O modules, door controllers, IP speakers, POS systems, and intercoms, lets you manage and control whole environments.
Flexible scalability for maximum storage efficiency
Synology NAS and NVR come in all shapes and sizes, from a 2-bay desktop unit to a rackmount server that can power 180 drives with seven expansion units. Best of all, you can flexibly expand your storage whenever you like to support more cameras or store more recordings.
You can keep footage for as short as you want or as long as you need with configurable retention policies. Archived recordings can be transferred to and from remote Surveillance Station servers using custom settings to optimize bandwidth use, and the intuitive Archive Vault tool helps you organize footage.
Central management console
With Surveillance Station Centralized Management System (CMS), businesses can manage up to 5,000 cameras and 300 NVRs across different locations from a single portal, at no extra cost.
N+M failover allows you to automatically or manually transfer services to a secondary device if a recording server becomes unavailable, reducing the risk of interruptions.
Advanced security options
Flexible privilege settings in Surveillance Station let you set different access levels for different individuals
Built-in protection with AES-256 encryption, secure connectivity via HTTPS, and 24/7 system logging help you protect your privacy and data security.
Surveillance on the go
Use the DS cam mobile app to keep an eye on your assets with live camera monitoring and video playback wherever you are, or set up push notifications to your device when pre-defined events occur.
