Synology RS815+ OK for Surveillance Station/NVR?

Hey there, I'm wanting to setup an NVR but the information on Synologys website is a bit confusing.

I'm considering using my old RS815+ for Surveillance Station/NVR paired with the VisualStation VS960HD. The NAS doesn't have HDMI output - thats where the VisualStation comes in.

Does anyone know if that'll work or am I overcomplicating it?

NaAS is from fundamental point of view Network attached storage. Now it is also servers base or Virtual machine base.
It’s answer why there isn’t HDMI.
But as I know, you can connect directly from the Visual staion to Surveillance station in any Syno NAS.

Look here - page no.5 from user guide:
In the Surveillance Station (note - in Visual station environment) application, you can sign in to any Surveillance Station account on a Synology NAS/NVR product to operate the functions of Surveillance Station based on the privilege granted to the account.
by IP or by QuickConnect, then you don’t need HDMI

Hey jeyare (again). I was thinking the HDMI was necessary to get into my distributed A/V system. That way I can view cameras from any TV in the house.

It sounds like the RS815+ and the VisualStation combo would work well.

There are just 2 HDMI outputs, no inputs
The Visual station seems to be remote HDMI Dashboard for NAS Survielance station

What's stopping you? Probably Synology wanting you to upgrade your NAS to take advantage of this "feature".
