1080p HDMI output for local display

Equipped with a dedicated HDMI output to display at 1080p resolution on a monitor, Synology NVR216 lets users watch up to 9 channels at 720p/30FPS of surveillance feeds without using a computer. In addition, you can directly manage cameras and recordings through Surveillance Station interface on the same monitor.


Intuitive Surveillance Station to streamline deployment

Synology Surveillance Station provides a user friendly and centralized interface, letting you manage and monitor IP cameras in your shop or office. It delivers robust features, such as the Live View panel with on-screen operations for monitoring video streams from multiple IP cameras, Timeline panel letting you select a date and time and then play back recordings from multiple channels at once, and an instant alert system to keep you always notified. With NVR216, it’s easy to monitor and protect your physical environment from practically anywhere, anytime - via local display, browsers, or mobile devices.


On-the-go surveillance with DS cam mobile app

Available on iOS and Android devices, DS cam is the mobile extension of Surveillance Station — allowing you to access Live View, playback, adjust PTZ, and receive push notifications. You can browse through recorded events and use a timeline bar to move backward or fast forward. With DS cam, it’s easy to monitor IP cameras located anywhere in the world. Never worry about missing any suspicious events!


Expandable recording storage, up to 7 drives

NVR216 can be connected to Synology DX5132 expansion unit to expand the available space from 2 to 7 drives, allowing users to create a RAID 5 volume and find the ideal balance for their storage strategy. Once connected via eSATA with a specially designed locking cable, NVR216’s raw capacity can be as high as 56TB3.

Get the alert. Don’t miss a thing

It’s impossible to keep your eyes on a monitor all day. So how do you protect your store after closing time? Surveillance Station provides multiple notification settings to keep you alerted. For example, when a thief sneaks into your shop and is detected by a camera, you will receive snapshots of the recordings through email. In this case, even if your NVR216 has been tampered with, you will keep the evidence. If camera is disconnected or damaged, you can also receive a message via SMS and push notifications on DS cam for iOS and Android devices.


Easy navigation and two-way audio

NVR216 comes with three USB ports, including one USB 3.0, allowing you to connect to a mouse and keyboard to navigate between different camera streams with ease. Plug a microphone on the audio input and speak directly to individuals via cameras with two-way audio.

Extensive support for different types of cameras

Deploying a surveillance solution can be simpler if you have a good start. NVR216 runs Surveillance Station which supports ONVIF Standards and is compatible with more than 4000 cameras with a wide range of variety, from 90 or more renowned brands. You can select fisheye, PTZ, multi-lenses, or Wi-Fi cameras according to your preference and needs to safeguard your shops!


Eco-friendly Network Video Recorder

NVR216 is designed with energy efficiency and quietness in mind. When paired with 9 channels of camera streaming, continuously recording, and with HDMI output enabled, NVR216 only consumes 14.14W* -as little power as one energy saving light bulb! In addition, NVR216 is built with RoHS compliant parts.


Watch your premises simply via a monitor

Optimize your budget and retail space when deploying a surveillance solution. Connect NVR216 to a monitor via a 1080p HDMI output, and start to watch live view streams and manage cameras. Everything can be done without a PC. No matter what business you do, NVR216 helps you to save money and room that could be used for more things.
