Expandable recording storage, up to 7 drives

  • NVR216 can be connected to Synology DX5132 expansion unit to expand the available space from 2 to 7 drives, allowing users to create a RAID 5 volume and find the ideal balance for their storage strategy. Once connected via eSATA with a specially designed locking cable, NVR216’s raw capacity can be as high as 56TB3.

Get the alert. Don’t miss a thing

  • It’s impossible to keep your eyes on a monitor all day. So how do you protect your store after closing time? Surveillance Station provides multiple notification settings to keep you alerted. For example, when a thief sneaks into your shop and is detected by a camera, you will receive snapshots of the recordings through email.

If camera is disconnected or damaged, you can also receive a message via SMS and push notifications on DS cam for iOS and Android devices.

In our test environment, the live view is delivered via a single web client and on 
Local Display at the same time; the video live-viewing and recording share the 
same video stream from the camera. Surveillance Station throughput is tested with 
Axis network camera, using continuous recording with live view from 
Surveillance Station and motion detection by camera.
