Synology’s VS360HD VisualStation is designed to replace the workstation in an IP surveillance solution, providing full management and control of connected cameras from any connected monitor on network fringes. The unit is especially well adapted to supporting retail and reception applications.
SYNOLOGY is well known as a manufacturer of digital storage solutions but the company also makes Surveillance Station software, which turns its network area storage devices into capable video surveillance solutions. Of course, using a NAS to handle some of the tasks of an NVR isn’t always easy and it relies on workstations across the network to handle the grunt work of live monitoring. And this is where our story begins.

FSH has received SCEC approval (Security Level 4) for its FSS1 high security door monitoring sensor, which has been designed and manufactured in Australia for military, correctional and high security applications.
FSS1 is a big deal for FSH and for the entire high security end of the access control and intrusion detection market, which has been waiting for a solution of this calibre since the Jackson Report found flaws in the security performance of existing high security door monitoring devices. The FSH sensor is available in flush or surface mount variations and replaces traditional high security magnetic balanced reed switches using a Hall Effect sensor and programmable magnetic plate combination that allows the unit to be re-calibrated to circumvent door drop, which would otherwise lead to replacement of sensors or re-hanging of doors.
