The app is only good for live viewing. Trying to find recordings is a nightmare. I met the product development manager at Melbourne Synology show. I told him that they need to copy the functionality from the standalone desktop app. In particular the timeline function in the playback section. He agreed. That was nearly a year ago now. Still waiting.....
CHANGE DEFAULT SETTING!! The app's default setting forces MJPEG streaming which consume bandwidth at least 10 times more than H.264 format causing roughly 0.3 FPS at first, but after disabling that default setting, FPS is now more than 1FPS!
STILL CANNOT PLAY H264 RECORDING! After so long of people complaining that this feature doesn't work, it still doesn't. I had a notification of motion detection late one night when away, but couldn't watch the recording of what and who it was.
Notifications need work. It's nice that notifications appear when motion is detected. However it would be more effective if tapping on the notification deep linked directly into the camera recording that triggered that notification. Also, the length of the message is too long and gets cut off, making all the messages the same with no way to tell which camera triggered. Perhaps the messages should be more like "Motion detected: Backyard Camera", instead of "Synology Surveillance Station has detected m..." like it currently does. Just saying.
Passable, but several really annoying issues. PTZ control is useless due to 30+ second delay. In general, playing any stream or recording requires an inordinate amount of prebufferring. Seems to be Android port issue as DS Cam does not have the same problem on iOS.
Janky, barely works, freezes constantly. Can't play a 5, 15, or 30 FPS stream consistently, even when loaded on a DS3617xs. 2-way audio doesn't even have basic echo cancellation (like a speakerphone) making it totally unusable without headphones. Enormous delay... 5-10 seconds making 2-way audio even more pointless.
． Applied a flattened user interface design
． Fixed an issue where snapshot lists may not be properly displayed when there are too many snapshots
． Minor bug fixes
