Synology publishes beta version of Surveillance Station 8.0




Article_Synology Small surveillance cameras are getting cheaper, so many people buy them. However, the market appears to have turned a bit. Instead of a one-time payment for the camera, some providers charge additional costs today. Abo is the keyword, for recording and alarms one should pay. Many people do not participate in this process and are therefore using solutions that allow records on their own servers.

The slightly larger solution for owners of a Synology NAS is the Surveillance Station , which can be naturally used professionally – but you can actually use an old Android phone .

Synology has now released Surveillance Station 8.0. In addition to the live view and management of the channels in the browser, the user can now also install the Surveillance Station Client on his computer and see everything through the app.

The Surveillance Station 8.0 Beta supports according Synology now automatic and manual adjustment of image resolution based on the size of the Live View window or Events. This is to save bandwidth when monitoring several channels.

Here is the description of Synology, if you want to know what’s new:

Advanced action rules: Advanced action rules and events provide for improved levels of automation within the Surveillance Station. By flexibly using logical operations and different events, actions are triggered if one or all predefined criteria are met.

Automatic Failover Protection: The new Synology CMS allows users of Surveillance Station 8.0 Beta to set up one or more backup servers. This allows for an intact monitoring structure with minimized downtime, reduced server performance and lower costs.

New codecs: Thanks to H.265 support, users have an even greater camera selection and a 25% bandwidth reduction2 for live viewing, recording and, at the same time, faster streaming experiences. In addition, the H.264 + codec optimized by Hikvision® as well as the SmartStream from ZAVIO are supported.

VS360HD Upgrade: By updating the firmware of the VisualStation VS360HD, thanks to the Synology connection service QuickConnect and HTTP connections, easy access to the Surveillance Station from anywhere is possible. Users can now connect freely to the NAS server and control almost all applications of the Surveillance Station.
