I/O module support

Instead of buying a costly specialized camera, you can integrate I/O modules into your surveillance architecture and use them as interfaces with physical devices such as magnetic locks, smoke detectors, motion detector, and more.

 

Central Management System

Central Management System (CMS) is designed for multi-site and multi-server surveillance deployments. The CMS infrastructure consists of a "CMS host server" which has total control over other “recording servers” across different locations, allowing security personnel to effectively monitor and manage large surveillance systems.

Efficient management

Achieve efficient management in large-scale surveillance deployments. CMS offers centralized control from a single point of entry, allowing administrators to reduce the time spent maintaining recording servers and IP cameras that are spread across multiple locations. Centralized management helps prevent human error resulting from repetitive actions.

Centralized and flexible surveillance

For large stores, office buildings, or other deployments that span multiple servers or locations, monitoring live feeds and recordings might become a daunting, tedious task. CMS provides unified controls for security personnel to easily filter surveillance footage according to the recording server, centralize logs from all servers into one place, or migrate multiple IP cameras to different recording servers, while consolidating device licenses on the CMS host. Spend less time on tedious management, and more time safeguarding your surroundings.

Live View Analytics

With Surveillance Station’s built-in and in-camera event detection support, you can monitor suspicious events with appropriate event detection features and even with more than one option at a time. Events that matched your pre-defined criteria will be automatically recorded and appear on a live view or E-map. Recordings can be locked and archived for future analysis.

Built-in event detection

Motion detection: System detects if there's any movement in a pre-determined area.

Missing object: Any object that's removed or missing from a pre-defined area triggers the alarm.

Foreign object: Any object that enters and remains in a pre-defined area is taken as a foreign object.

Camera occlusion: When an IP cam's lens is blocked by unknown objects, the system will trigger an alert.

Focus lost: When an IP cam's focus is adjusted or lost focus, the system will trigger an alert.

No-idle zone: Any object that stays in the no-idle zone for over a set period of time will trigger an alert.

Find and manage recordings

As time passes, you'll have an enormous amount of recordings from multiple cameras. Surveillance Station provides tools to not only watch recordings, but also manage them and choose what can be deleted or archived.

See all recordings

The Recordings panel consolidates all your recordings from every camera in one place. From here, you can play back recordings or sort them based on different attributes, such as camera model or date.

 CMS support

The integration with Synology Central Management System (CMS) allows administrators to look up recordings from different recording servers on a same monitor. Even for massive architecture with hundreds of cameras, everything is unified and readily available.

Smart Search

Archived recordings are a very informative source for any kind of analysis. Smart Search lets you easily track any change during your IP camera's watch time, and customize search parameters to narrow down a search to avoid false alarms.

Motion detection: System detects if there's any movement in a pre-determined area.

Missing object: Any object that's removed or missing from a pre-defined area triggers the alarm.

Foreign object: Any object that enters and remains in a pre-defined area is taken as a foreign object.

Camera occlusion: When an IP cam's lens is blocked by unknown objects, the system will trigger an alert.

Focus lost: When an IP cam's focus is adjusted or lost focus, the system will trigger an alert.

No-idle zone: Any object that stays in the no-idle zone for over a set period of time will trigger an alert.

 

Recording modes

In complicated surveillance deployments, constantly recording all video feeds might not be precise enough. Surveillance Stations gives you intelligent recording modes to automatically capture footage according to a schedule or visual analytics, such as motion detection. To save storage space, all your recordings can be "recycled" to make room for new footage when a customizable limit is reached.

Cameras & Management

Surveillance Station aims to be as intuitive and effortless as possible. Featuring support for a wide range of cameras combined with a powerful suite of management tools, Surveillance Station helps you organize, automate, and deploy surveillance systems of all sizes.

Manage Cameras in High Efficiency

Deploying hundreds of IP cameras used to be a formidable task. With CMS, cameras of the same model can be installed and configured in one step. You can, moreover, optimize all cameras’ performance according to the actual environments through the advanced settings, or by utilizing the open Web API.

There is also no need to add cameras one by one onto your video wall. IT administrators can organize cameras into groups to always watch them together in Live View and Timeline, or manage them in CMS Setup, so as to enhance management efficiency.

Live View & Recording on CMS

Enjoy up to 64 channels of live view in HD on each monitoring screen. Synology NAS servers act as dedicated NVR to host IP cameras and be deployed across different geological locations. The CMS host centralizes live feeds and recording footages to allow management via a single web portal.

Up to 64 channels of 720p live view on single screen: set up video wall in HD quality. Available on Internet Explorer, Firefox, and for Windows or Safari for Mac.
See more live streams on one browser: Surveillance Station is now compatible with multiple live view windows in one single browser. Users now can enjoy different layouts and live feeds in various screens.
Playback recordings from various recording servers: security personnel can search for specific recordings according to camera models, recording modes, dates or video formats to greatly reduce required time and resources.
Continuous recording on recording server: Synology’s device licenses are managed by recording servers independently, providing continuous recording even when the connection between a CMS host and recording servers are lost.

Privileges, E-Maps & Notifications

Synology CMS makes managing a large-scale surveillance deployment much easier by covering all grounds, such as user privileges, e-maps and system notifications.

  • User privilege: authorize camera access rights by account. Windows AD, LDAP, and Trust Domain are supported. Learn more about privilege settings.
  • E-map: by creating a central and interactive e-map that pinpoints the locations of each recording server and IP camera, security personnel can react to incidents in a timely fashion.
  • Notification: the CMS host aggregates system alerts from recording servers to allow you to stay on top of everything via email, SMS or push notifications on mobile devices.
