Methodology

Testing a device such as this, involves setting it up with the NAS device in question, and hooking it up to the camera. I then tested its available features and evaluated their functionality.

Camera

The camera I used for the testing was an Edimax IC-7000PTn V2 which has wireless and ethernet functionality. It can be remotely controlled with pan, tilt and zoom controls.

Setting it up is easy enough, involving installing the Edimax camera admin software, giving you a simple option to view the MAC and IP address of the camera making setting up the VS60 and Surveillance station far easier.

The Edimax camera has its own built in viewing software which offers quite a wide choice of options.

    You neglect to mention in your review, that the Surveillance Station software only allows the connection of a single camera, unless the user purchases additional “licenses” for each additional camera.

    To connect the 5 cameras that your NAS supports, you would have to buy 4 licenses, at $50 each, for an additional $200 cost, above and beyond the NAS purchase price.
