Synology Inc. announced Surveillance Station 8.2. Locally available in the Philippines, this release showcases LiveCam, a new security camera app that turns a spare phone into an IP camera.
The iOS version has been released with the Android version coming around October. The revamp of DS cam offers higher performance, along with the addition of IP speakers to the hardware support list. The next generation of Application Center offers greater flexibility for application management.
“With the combination of LiveCam on iOS and the brand new DS cam, Surveillance Station has entered a mobile era of transforming the phone into a security camera and having its video recordings accessible by DS cam” said Ivan Chang, Product Manager at Synology Inc. “Features like Smart Time Lapse, Dual Authentication and support for IP speakers make Surveillance Station the project-ready solution.”
Surveillance Station 8.2 features include: turning phones into cameras with LiveCam; Application Center that knows just what is needed; next generation of DS cam that not only provides a more streamlined viewing experience, but also multi-timeline capabilities for intuitively searching through video footage; support for IP speakers; Time Lapse to shorten lengthy videos down to minutes or even seconds; Dual Authorization that restricts sensitive functions such as managing cameras or accessing video records to only be performed with authorization from another party; and Live Broadcast.
