Sold my Nas and have a leftover licence that I am removing from the Nas before sale.

 

Expect to pay about ~$79 new.

 

Yes - these licences are transferable as per Synology Support.

 

Taking offers. Thanks.

Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.

1 licence supports 1 camera. The nas had 2 inbuilt that cannot be removed, but the extra licence I purchased can be.

Have they added off site backup after the alert?

 

Last time I looked it wasn't an option so I used rasp pi's which would email me the motion activated photos so it wouldn't matter (as much) if they stole the NAS too.

Alert?

 

Yes there are multiple off site backup options including dropbox and google drive (which I used).

Last time I looked, which was 3 years ago, (DSM 4)  the event alarm such as movement detection, would send you an email saying there has been an event but wouldn't attach the photos to the alert email or allow you to save the pictures/video off site. I could get around it by using the cloud sync facility to sync the surveillance directory on the NAS with my gmail account. But I really wanted the photos'video attached to the alert email itself, so use my rasp pi's and picam Os.

 

As you bought an extra license you would know more about it than me, so has it changed now.

 

Will the NAS send me an email in response to the alarm with the incriminating event included?

Ahh, yes things have extensively changed since DSM4. Loads of alert options, although I only used the plain email alert as the Google Drive was good enough after the alert.

 

I used 3x 3MP cameras streaming to a DS213j. 3 cameras was probably the maximum that CPU could handle.

Thanks. Might look at it again.

 

When I go on holiday I just stick sd's with the surveillance software on it into my two rasp pi b's and connect ethernet cables.

 

As I've now got a couple of rasp3 (wifi) with upgraded cameras, I might play with the NAS software again to see if it beats running the software on the pi's directly.
