Isolated subnet for Surveillance Station?

Unread post by MatF » Sun Jun 18, 2017 8:40 am

Hi guys,

I'm soon going to install a few IP cameras and start using Surveillance Station. I'd like to separate the cameras from everything on my main network by using separate subnets, and as it turns out I'll have to buy a second switch anyway, so all the camera will be on their own dedicated switch. For security reasons (all the cameras will be outside), I want to be able to prevent all access from the Camera LAN (192.168.1.x) to anything on the main LAN (192.168.0.x), but I still want to be able to access Surveillance Station from the main LAN.

Will this setup work?

I'd also enable DHCP on the NAS interface 2 to give IPs to the cameras.

Unfortunately I don't have a router that provides inter-VLAN routing or ACL, so unless I change some more stuff, VLANs aren't an option.
