Which disk sizes for Serveillance on DS420+ ?

I'm planning to add 2-3 cameras to my DS420+ which has no disks yet. Ideally HD quality 24/7 recording with 14 day retention. Can someone advise on the size of each disk, I also have 3TB of other data to backup to the NAS. Looking to go SHR or RAID5, thanks

POE Switch for IP Camera with Synology?

I want to add IP cameras to my older Synology DS1511+. I am confused about where the POE switch should go in the wired setup. My system background: Modem to Router Router to unmanaged switch to other devices like Apple TV, etc... Router to Synology Where in the lineup is the best location for POE switch? Directly to Router? Directly to Unmanaged Switch? Directly to the second port on the back of Synology NAS?

How To Link IP Cameras In One House With A NAS In Another House?

How to link IP cameras in one house with a NAS in another house? IP cameras remote connection to Synology NAS Surveillance Station I’ve found your article as very interesting and clarifying, but still I can’t find an answer for my desired installation. I’d like to install a surveillance system in my second home, but configured from a Synology NAS I have in my main home, both in different cities and I can’t find if this is possible. I want to know if I can configure my cameras installed in my second home to be managed from my Synology NAS installed in my first home. Both are 50 km away from each other and both homes have a fast 100mb fiber optics connection to the PTT network. The idea is to check my second home cameras from my first home Synology NAS and/or surveillance app. If answer is positive, could I also send the recording over the internet so I can keep the video in case the burglar stole the SD card?. Thank you for any help
