Synology Surveillance Station 8.0.2 Officially Launched

The surveillance station is a vital part of many NAS setups. It is the backbone of many surveillance setups and Synology is constantly improving the app to deliver a better experience to users. That’s no different for version 8.0.2 which just been launched.

While the new version doesn’t look like a major change at the first glance, it does bring some improvements that are worth it. The newly-supported layout, which can contain a maximum of 100 (10×10) channels, as well as the added scaling options of “High performance” and “High quality” provide you with a powerful and flexible surveillance system.

There’s also good news for those about to invest in a new surveillance system as the new version comes with extended compatibility thanks to the Surveillance Device Pack 5.2. The new device pack has over 140 cameras added to the compatibility range of Synology’s Surveillance Station and started to support DAHUA generic camera API.

The new version also comes with improved cloud sync, although that’s still in a beta version. However, it does offer more flexibility and enables users to schedule sync tasks according to needs.
