In its 16 years of activity, Synology revolutionized network attached storage systems and appliances.
Synology apps exist ever since when the company realized how important convenience and ease of use is to its customers. We want to note that, even though there are plenty of Synology 3 rd party apps available on the web, most of them are aimed towards users with medium or extensive experience in using Linux and Synology products. In addition, most of them are open source — which is advantageous, until we think about how often they are likely to be updated or have maintenance performed on them.
The apps send push, SMS, or e-mail notifications when certain events take place and offer the ability to start up, turn off, update, or simply monitor the status of a DS. Another smart feature is their ability to determine the DS to make a sound, which can help users identify the DS in question. From there, individual files or folders Albums can be viewed and shared with other users or devices. However, the smartest quality of the Photo Synology app is its timeline which makes it easy to search and find photos or simply view them in a chronologically organized manner.
Users can take snapshots, watch multiple channels at the same time up to 6 from an Android or iOS tabletand even adjust the positioning and zoom of their surveillance cameras. Just like with the photos app, surveillance recordings are presented as a timeline.

Rather than leave your PC running to complete a simple download or dozens of downloads for that matter you can, instead, offload the task to your NAS and retrieve the files later.
Even better, you can set a schedule so that large files download in the middle of the night—perfect for keeping your connection free and speedy during your waking hours. The secret sauce in our download scheduling routine is the free and official download management application from Synology, Download Station. Simply repeat the process with as many files as you wish, and your Synology NAS will chug along, downloading all of them.
There are two scheduling layers available to you via the Download Station settings. You can schedule periods of zero downloading activity and you can set time-based restrictions on BitTorrent traffic. To modifidy both schedules, you simply click on the Settings icon in the Disk Station interface, located in the lower left corner.
Now your existing and future downloads will, when added outside of the active hours, display a download icon with a clock, as seen below.
Thanks to the simple interface of Download Station, you can offload your downloading activity to your Synology NAS so you can turn off your computer, game on it, update it, or otherwise not worry about leaving it on to churn through a download queue.

Want to know more?Theresa, United States Express Norway, August 2016 The hotel accomodations were very good, and just what we asked for (two twin beds). One hotel with included a dinner - saved a plate of food for us because we arrived very late that night (after 10:00pm).
That was very kind of them. Had a great time. She help answer all of my questions (I had a lot), I was a little fearful on how to get around, where to pick up my car, how to find the hotels, but she was there to answer all of my questions. The amount of information provided to us for the trip, and the detailed notes as well as the insider recommendations made the trip incredibly special- and I'm already looking at another one for next year.
It was also invaluable to have a local agency plan this: the insight and details as a result of my trip being handled by someone who is from the destination, made the difference. Susannah, United Kingdom Norway Explorer, August 2016 Accommodation was excellent in all locations. We were pleased that many of the hotels offered complimentary evening light buffet meals. The hire car we received exceeded our expectations.
We very much appreciated the map we were given with handwritten annotations for hotels, ferries etc. Jane, Canada Golden Circle and South Coast, August 2016 Service from Nordic Visitor was wonderful. Brooke, United States Adventures Around Iceland, August 2016 Kristin was amazing. Doreen and Thomas, United States Express Iceland, August 2016 Every hotel outside of the city was fantastic.
Robin, United States Adventures Around Iceland, July 2016 Klara Lind put together amazing accommodations. Michael and Adele, United States Complete Iceland, July 2016 Our tour guide, was outstanding. Bernard and Lesley, United Kingdom Iceland Full Circle, July 2016 All accommodations were comfortable clean with good bathroom facilities. We thoroughly enjoyed our Norway in a nutshell trip with Nordic visitor and found them very easy to work with and really appreciated the helpful, friendly attitude of all involved.
John, United States Scenic Circle of Scandinavia, July 2016 We had a very nice time. Everyone was helpful, and anxious to please. Our guide was excellent, personable, helpful and knowlegeable in all areas. An added bonus was his guitar playing at our farewell dinner. Russell, United Kingdom The Classic Scandinavian Roundtrip, July 2016 The tour was highly enjoyable.
Carla and Grady, United States Ring Around the Island, July 2016 I have traveled the world and I can say without reservation that the Icelandic people are the most friendly, welcoming, helpful people I have ever encountered.
The geology of the island is so unique and beautiful. I can't wait to go back in the winter to see the Northern Lights.
