    Snapshots not showing up in Snapshots app

    My S.S. and 2 Reolink cameras seem to be working just fine. All software is up to date. But, in the S.S. Snapshots app, there are no pics. I can see them in Windows Explorer however. The file names are just stings of 10 numbers with no extension which I assume is normal. File sizes are all 4 and...

    I just finished proposing two solutions for the community I live in. It will be an autonomous solution, which should be strictly separate from the network with the possibility of viewing the data in case of specific conditions. I was pleasantly surprised that the Ubiquiti with the NVR separate...

    DSM 6.2 Surveillance Station timezones per-camera

I live in FL and the Synology is here, but my in-laws' cameras are in California and I have them recording on my Synolgoy. The time stamps of files are 3 hours behind.

    DSM 7.0 Alert on audio

    Afternoon all, I use SS to monitor our home and the dog when we're out. I know (and use) SS to detect movement, but can it also alert on loud noises (e.g. the dog barking/whining)? If not, any suggestions on apps that can do that please? Cheers!

    Surveillance Station Alternative

    Hello everyone, given that licenses for SS are quite expensive (seriously 50£ for each camera it’s a robbery for me) can you please suggest me which are the alternatives? Docker or 3rd party package? I don’t need a lot of features, just basic ones such as detection of movements, auto turn...

    H.264 vs H.265

    I have installed 3 Hikvision IP cameras and they work perfectly on SS, set up with H.264 and smart event detection. I read that H.265 saves storage space, so I changed my settings from H.264 to H.265, with all other settings unchanged. However, I don't see any storage savings at all - it seems...
