  1. Fantastic, thanks. I'll pick up a supported camera and give it a go.
  2. Thanks for taking the time to reply. In those posts, where Surveillance Station is mentioned, people always seem to say "extra licenses" in their questions, possibly implying that Surveillance Station operates in a limited capacity (single camera?) but one needs to pay Synology to go further with it?

  3. I'm thinking of setting up a surveillance camera for use with our XPenology box (bare metal Dell Optiplex 3010). I notice on eBay that "Surveillance Station licenses" are available - would I need to buy one and if so will it be happy being used on an XPenology install? I notice plenty of posts here from users of Surveillance Station so I'm assuming so. And to get maximum value from my post.... Can anyone recommend an outdoor rechargeable wifi camera for the job? The current favourits is the Reolink Solar but I have no idea about these things. Thanks, Steve
  4. Hi, If I needed to replace the NICs in my current Optiplex 3010 install (bare metal) - is it a case of repeating the initial install process again (mounting synoboot.img, editing grub.conf....) and then burning the updated image to my USB stick? Or is there a neater way.... Thanks, Steve
  5. I have an onboard NIC (Dell Optiplex 3010 PC) and an Intel Pro-1000 dual-port PCI NIC, making a total of three available LAN interfaces. In DSM 6.2.3's Netowk Control Panel all three NICs are visible, I can ping their manually assigned IPs and their connection status is determined OK when I plug and unplug their cables. All good so far. However when I visit Virtual Machine Manager > Virtual Switch I'm only offered the on-board NIC and ONE of the dual-port LAN interfaces. I'd expected to have a choice of the on-board one and the two interfaces from the dual-port-car
