While the VS60 was fun to have a play around with, I’m sort of stumped about what you’re really paying for. The standard NAS drive has the surveillance station that can be remotely acessed via the web. You can view a live feed and control the camera with as much functionality as the VS60 offers; hell you can even access the camera alone via a standard network connection.
The VS60 does allow you to view up to 6 cameras on the same screen, but the surveillance station on the NAS drive allows you to see up
o 5 cameras individually. I just don’t see the functionality of the VS60 being worth anywhere near the £200 price tag. I could maybe justify £30? £50 if it was wireless enabled? But otherwise… I just don’t get it.
|Allows you to have upto 6 cameras on a remote screen at once||Very Expensive|
|Looks good||Limited functionality|
|Can’t take snapshots with mouse plugged in|
Thanks go to Synology for providing us with this drive.
