QNAP Surveillance Station

The Surveillance Station is professional network surveillance Video Management System (VMS). Being one of the Turbo NAS standard applications, the Surveillance Station can be activated on the QTS App Center to turn the Turbo NAS into a professional Network Video Recorder (NVR) system for real-time monitoring, recording, playback, alarm notifications, Intelligent Video Analytics (IVA), and management to safeguard your assets and property when used with supported IP cameras.

Maintaining accessible and reliable live surveillance feeds is essential for properties such as retail stores, hotels, construction sites, offices, and at home. With the Surveillance Station, you can easily manage & monitor multiple IP cameras on a real-time basis through web browsers, and attain the first-hand status of monitored corners, such as building gates, office entrances, or emergency exits, safeguarding your staff and property.

The Surveillance Station supports various monitoring modes to display 1, 4, 6, 8, 9, 10, 12, 16, 20, 25, 36, 42, and 64 channels on a single screen. Users can also choose to sequentially display each channel or use dual displays to have a wider view.

With the support of QvPC Technology, you will be able to gain direct control over the surveillance infrastructure in your home or office environment by using “Surveillance Station (Local Display)” function*, which supports video local display and playback on a big monitor via the HDMI output.

On the Surveillance Station web interface, you can directly adjust the PTZ (Pan/Tilt/Zoom) functions of supported cameras, greatly enhancing the convenience in remote monitoring of desired corners.

Whenever you move the mouse cursor over a camera channel, the supported function buttons of the camera will show up for quick access. The interactive control buttons will disappear when not in use, helping you watch the IP camera feeds without any distractions.

On the Live-view page, whenever you want to look back to check suspicious events of a camera channel you just missed, just hit ‘Instant Playback’ button to bring up the window to review recent feeds. While you don’t have to switch to the playback page to do so, you can still have full live views of other channels simultaneously.

You can set up preset positions and auto-cruising for PTZ cameras to automatically adjust the camera angle to preset positions by the time interval you define. To gain more flexibility, you can click the corresponding number buttons of an IP camera’s preset positions to have an instant view at that position.

On the Live-view page, you can directly configure IP camera recording schedules when needed without leaving the Live-view page, maintaining a seamless monitoring so you won’t miss any suspicious event.

The E-map function helps visualize the layout of the deployment of IP cameras enabling you to quickly identify the location of each IP camera, especially when an alarm occurs. Just upload the pictures of the monitoring locations and drag and drop the IP camera icons to the right place on the E-map. Once an alarm event happens, the camera icons will flash to indicate the event type for you to be alerted immediately and take necessary actions.

The Surveillance Station works with all major web browsers such as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer. With QNAP Surveillance Client for Mac, users can also enjoy a similar experience on their Macs.

When the alarm recording is enabled and an event occurs, an alarm icon will be shown instantly on the monitoring page. The alert details can be viewed by clicking the icon.
