Video surveillance solutions are safety tools that help reduce crime and protect people and properties. Synology, as a network attached storage (NAS) vendor, provides reliable video management system through their Surveillance Station integrated in the honorable operation system DiskStation Manager. The brand aims to provide easy-to-use software that is not only ideal for personal use but also for corporate use.

 

For home users, Synology has devised the Surveillance Station that could help protect families, children, babies, and even pets. Every Synology NAS has two free camera licenses, which can be freely used anytime, anywhere. But if you don’t have a camera, don’t fret for there’s the Live Cam app that can easily help you turn your phone into a camera.

 

For business users, efficient surveillance solutions have been made to prevent incidents of shoplifting and theft. With Synology’s Surveillance Station, businesses will have the chance to resolve disputes via efficient commercial security monitoring services and provide accurate pieces of evidence for possible investigations via digitized video recording.

 

With great camera compatibility, the Surveillance Station supports over 6600 camera models from over 120 well-known brands. This indeed makes it easy to integrate the Surveillance Station into the customers’ existing setup. It also gives full flexibility of camera selection during deployment. Moreover, the Surveillance Station supports ONVIF Profiles S and G. So as long as the customers’ IP cameras support the ONVIF standard, they can be instantly connected to the Surveillance Station.

 

No matter how many cameras are used, monitoring everything effectively presents a serious challenge. This is the case for security personnel who at times miss out some of the most crucial happenings onscreen. As a countermeasure, Synology has devised the Live View Analytics. This feature helps operators monitor suspicious events and check the live recordings. The system provides users notifications and alerts through a beep sound, a flashing icon, or a pop-up window.

 

Searching through hours of stored video for the correct data is difficult and time-consuming. But with the Smart Search feature, searching and collecting valuable information from each recording would be easily obtainable. This feature aids the security personnel in finding the specific details or events without viewing the whole time recordings.

 

In a multi-site scenario, it’s a waste of time to check the recording servers one by one. Good thing there comes on hand Synology’s Centralized Management System (CMS), a single web portal that helps in managing hundreds or even thousands of IP cameras at the same time from different locations. With this, the job of the security personnel becomes a lot easier and much faster.

 

However, in a critical CMS environment, the possibilities of server downtime may arise. But Synology’s N+M failover mechanism can definitely help solve the problem. For the CMS host, users can have another NAS to run High Availability service to maximize the server uptime. For the recording servers, users can assign failover servers to assure its service availability. When unexpected situations occur, the failover server can automatically take over the entire surveillance services from the recording server. Seemingly, the N+M can have multiple failover servers to be paired with multiple recording servers.

 

To cite one great case study, there’s the Holiday Inn chain of hotels in the Middle East. Deploying over 500 cameras in all their hotels, they need to have a CMS to be able to efficiently monitor and manage everything from their headquarters. And they would also need another backup for those recordings. With Synology’s CMS, the Holiday Inn management in the Middle East is able to set up host NVRs and recording servers in both their headquarters and hotel branches. The monitoring of events and management of records are thus made more accurate and highly purposive.

 

 

The Surveillance Station runs on all Synology NASs and NVRs (network video recorders). The recordings on the NAS will be protected by Synology’s market-proven RAID technique. It also supports online storage expansion that would not affect the original recording tasks. Some Synology rackmount models support up to 96 HDDs with expansion units and at the same time, obtaining up to 1PB of storage capacity that’s ideal for all surveillance projects.

 

In terms of networking, Synology NASs support up to 10GbE of transmitting frame rates, aiding in the link aggregation to further expand and maximize network bandwidth – a great proof that the network of storage will never be a problem.

 

All Synology NASs have the Surveillance Station feature. Users just need to download the Surveillance Station package from the package center.

 

Synology is authorized as a CVE Numbering Authority (CNA) by The MITRE Corporation, a world-leading security institute. Entitled to assign CVE IDs to vulnerabilities affecting storage products, Synology is committed to continually advancing its cyber security solutions.
