Re: UniFi Video Camera with Synology Surveillance Station

I always noticed that it took time for the browser to process that a change was made. Like I'd side the slider and then it was noticeable to have to wait. You could try IE.

Re: UniFi Video Camera with Synology Surveillance Station

Hmm yeah seems you need to re-enter user/pass before clicking save Man Tongue

Another thing I found though is that motion detection (Synology) doesnt work, that simply gives a black screen Man Sad

Re: UniFi Video Camera with Synology Surveillance Station

I got this to work, finally.

Start, create, manage UniFi Video server (mine is setup under Windows).

Setup RTSP for the Video server, setup user defined port 7447 in the synology.

Re: UniFi Video Camera with Synology Surveillance Station

Well yeah but then you will always need a NVR in between, it would be ideal to access them directly ofc.

Motion detection works fine for me in Synology. And yes, if you are using rtsp authentication, you have to have a username and password.

With RTSP retranslation through the NVR, there is no authentication possible.

Re: UniFi Video Camera with Synology Surveillance Station

I just read the last four pages On this thread and I found that This looks Pretty complex and unreliable. Can someone please tell me Why they would choose to use surveillance station over Unifi video? I'm Setting up a Business and need something reliable.

Re: UniFi Video Camera with Synology Surveillance Station

I dunno if the play nas will have the guts to be a full fledged NVR. But, it does have the software, so it's at least worth a shot. You can use either surveillance station or setup a docker to run Unifi Video.
