DS111 and how many 3mega pixel cameras?

Unread post by Abula » Thu Jan 23, 2014 11:34 pm


Im trying to find out how many cameras would my DS111 will handle, according to synology web, it says 8 cameras, given that the licence are bought, im planning on running an HP Procurve 1410-16G Switch (J9560A) + WS-POE-8-48v120w passive Power Over Ethernet POE Injector for 8 IP cameras, so in theory im set to run 5 home PC + couple accespoint + 8x Hikvision DS-2CD2032-I Outdoor HD 3MP IP Bullet Security Camera 4mm, but im wondering if you guys think the DS111 will be able to handle it, I have fears on the CPU, that it might struggle with so many cameras, but im a newbie on synology surveillance station, so might be fine or not to run 8 of those cameras.

If you guys know if its the DS111 is not fast enough, what synology would? im not interested on massive storage, DS713+ (witht the Intel atom dual core) or DS214+ (with the Marvel XP Armada)?
