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 on/off when you’re at home, mobile access and a couple more.

There’s Blue Iris. But I’ve never tried it.
I know BlueIris, but it's not a solution for me. Because it needs to be on a windows machine, and for me, that would mean I need to put a Windows VM on my DS720+ and I'm scared that this could slow down the entire system.
