Version 5.0 is a huge improvement


This latest version 5.0.0 is a big improvement on the previous version, which was slow to bring up video, and cumbersome for viewing recorded footage.

Much better, especially speed of displaying live video, but please don’t relax yet. You’re still quite far behind offers like Nestcam and their easy scrolling through the timeline.

Please do more work on speeding up reviewing recorded footage - it’s still too slow, and more laggy than it should be, both on the DS-Cam app and when using the SS management application.

Great improvements


Having given a poor rating on previous review I feel that Synology team have listened to those criticisms and vastly improved the usability of this app and provided what people expect from Synology.

The layout is excellent, more user friendly and offer greater facilities for remote monitoring. The user interface looks far more professional, playback of recorded footage is far better. Shame the app doesn’t allow viewing of more than one/two cameras depending on Synology version.

Amazing overall package


Owning a Synology disk station (NAS) provides a whole host of benefits, including Surveillance Station. While this app is not great at watching live video feed, it’s fantastic that I can enable and disable and get a status of my cameras from anywhere in the world without needing to worry about any form of networking issues. I can also watch recordings very well using this app, providing I am on the same network as the disk station. And all of this (and more) is included in the price of my NAS! In my mind, this is good value for money.
