Product information

Pros and cons

According to our NAS expert
  • Thanks to the Quad-Core processor, the NAS can handle multiple demanding tasks, such as streaming HD surveillance videos and making backups.
  • The NAS supports multiple RAID setups, which allow you to safely store your files.
  • The IP camera is powered via the network cable, so you don't need a socket near the IP camera.
  • Because you can't use WiFi, you can only connect the IP camera with a network cable.

Product description

You can protect your home from intruders with the outdoor surveillance package - Synology S218play with 8TB. This package includes a Synology S218play NAS, a Foscam FI9853EP IP camera, and 2 Seagate IronWolf 4TB hard drives. With 8TB, you can store 8 years worth of low-resolution 30 fps footage. The S218play is an entry-level NAS with room for two hard drives. The NAS has a Quad-Core processor and 1GB RAM, so you can use it for other things while it stores surveillance images. The IP camera saves surveillance images directly on your NAS via an Ethernet cable. It's also powered by this Ethernet cable, so you don't need an outdoor socket. The FI9853EP records images up to a distance of 20 meters, even when it's dark.

    • Great Software and integration
    • Easy installation
    • Decent speed
    • Gets erratic when running background indexation

    Great NAS, really nice for a novice user. Integration with TV and iOS is really good.

    Best product I have purchased this year

    Robert Suarez | 20 October 2019 | In the version: NAS with no hard drives

    • Cost effective
    • Great software and storage capacity
    • Like look and quiet function
    • Not as easy to install drives as the + version.

    I compared multiple reviews and products and this was the best product for the cost by far. Spending more money for a higher Ram chip has no impact on my use of a NAS unless I was using more of the multimedia apps. I only need a mass storage device that is on my home wifi network.

    It was a good buy for my storage needs.

    Saurab Rajkarnikar | 4 June 2019 | In the version: NAS with no hard drives

    • Easy to setup and maintain
    • Easily access files remotely
    • Not very loud
    • Everything is plastic

    The ds218play is an easy to setup NAS. The UI is easy and the number of packages present are also nice.
