It supports real-time monitoring, video & audio recording and playback with a wide range of customizable settings. You can also install the Vmobile app on your iOS® or Android™ devices to manage the monitored channels anytime and anywhere, or install the Vcam mobile app to turn your device into a network camera to instantly record to your TS-253B. The TS-253B offers 4 free IP camera channels and you can expand up to 40 channels by purchasing additional licenses.alt

Whole new QVR Pro surveillance solution

The TS-253B supports QVR Pro (Beta) that integrates QNAP’s professional QVR system into the QTS operating system. You can arrange a dedicated, independent storage space for surveillance data on the NAS and leverage the advantages of scalability and storage manageability from QTS. QVR Pro features a flexible monitoring interface that allows adjusting the proportion and monitor view of IP cameras, supports an upgraded timeline feature that provides instant video search and quick view identification in live monitoring mode, and allows for monitoring views and playing back images without switching between windows. Additional functions like batch adding and editing cameras and searching for cameras across different LANs further save the cost and time in deploying and maintaining a complete surveillance system. With the newly-developed QUSBCam2 App, you can use a USB camera as an ONVIF network camera. Simply connect it to your TS-253B, and you can view real-time images without installing any software. Through QVR Pro, you can even store recordings for playback, allowing you to build a surveillance system with minimum budget.
*The maximum number of channels supported varies by NAS model, network configuration, and camera settings. alt

Easily expand storage capacity

Besides attaching a QNAP expansion enclosure, the TS-253B’s storage capacity can also be increased by using VJBOD. With VJBOD, the storage capacity of other QNAP NAS* can be used as virtual disks that can be mounted as local disks on the TS-253B for shares, applications, or even creating another LUN. You can use the QTS Storage Manager to easily handle NAS capacity expansion and storage expansion enclosure management. With the support of QJBOD Express (JBOD enclosures roaming)**, you can migrate data to another QNAP NAS through a JBOD enclosure without network connectivity.
