DS cam makes it possible to monitor and receive alert notifications from all your surveillance cameras set up on a Synology DiskStation. Smart features such as PTZ, patrols or lens control allow for perfect control of your cameras in real time, while advanced filters make it easy to pinpoint any specific event from large lists of recordings. You can even perform all essential management tasks, from disabling a camera to unlocking and deleting a snapshot.

Massive improvement

The app has improved enormously just recently. Lots of functionality for navigating through footage, grabbing recordings and more. Finally it feels like it should always have been.

Works perfectly to stream my 3 IP cameras from anywhere. Even works over mobile network - as well as WiFi.

Great interface with loads of features.

Yay the app has been fixed to work just like it used to (for me anyway). Good work on listening to the users and keeping the app usable!
