The DS209+ can also be used as a basic video surveillance system. To enable this mode, you must connect a web-camera to the NAS and set it up using the Surveillance Station service. This application allows you to record video by a schedule or when there is any movement detected in the surveillance zone. You can also view the camera’s image in real time. The Surveillance Station can work with multiple cameras simultaneously, but you need to buy an additional license with activation key for each additional camera.
E-Mail Server and RoundCube
New in Disk Station Manager version 2.1 is the email server but it is not yet integrated into the firmware – you can install it separately via the package management service. Besides the server, this package includes a web-application called RoundCube. It is quite a popular IMAP client.
You can learn more about its capabilities at the project website at http://roundcube.net.
