How to Expand Your Surveillance Devices with Synology License Packs
If you are using Synology Surveillance Station to manage your IP cameras, I/O modules, intercoms, access controllers, IP speakers, and transaction devices, you may wonder how to expand your surveillance devices as your business grows. In this article, we will explain how Synology's licensing plan works and how you can purchase and activate additional licenses for your surveillance devices.
Synology's Licensing Plan
By default, you would have default licenses that come with Synology NAS/NVR; extra licenses can be purchased for additional surveillance devices as your business grows[^1^]. Synology also provides three options for additional purchased licenses: 1, 4 or 8 Surveillance Device License Packs; each comes with a single license key, allowing you to activate 1, 4 or 8 surveillance devices at a time[^1^]. To find out the maximum number of surveillance devices supported on each Synology NAS/NVR, please refer to the specifications of each model[^1^].
Under most circumstances, each IP camera, I/O module, IP speaker, intercom, and access controller will only require one license, while each transaction device will require two licenses[^1^]. However, multi-lens cameras and video servers for analog cameras may require additional licenses[^1^]. For more details about supported cameras and surveillance devices, please refer to the Camera Support List and Surveillance Device Support List[^1^].
How to Purchase and Activate Additional Licenses
You can purchase additional licenses from Synology's official website or from authorized resellers[^2^]. After purchasing a license pack, you will receive an email containing a license key. You can then log in to Surveillance Station and go to Main Menu > License > Add. Enter the license key and click OK to activate the license[^3^]. You can also check the status of your licenses and devices on the same page[^3^].
Synology Surveillance Station is a powerful and flexible solution for managing your surveillance devices. With Synology's licensing plan, you can easily expand your surveillance devices as your business grows.
