Synology Camera


  The synology platform allows you to watch the live streams of your Synology Surveillance Station based IP cameras in Home Assistant.

To enable your Surveillance Station cameras in your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Minimum configuration.yaml entry
camera:
  - platform: synology
    url: SYNOLOGY_URL
    username: USERNAME
    password: PASSWORD

Configuration variables:

  • url (Required): The URL to your synology, including port.
  • username (Required): The username for accessing surveillance station.
  • password (Required): The password for accessing surveillance station.
  • whitelist (Optional): A list of which cameras you want to add, the names must be the same as in Surveillance Station. If omitted all cameras are added.
  • verify_ssl (Optional): True to require a valid certificate, False to disable certificate checking. Defaults to True.

A full sample configuration for the synology platform is shown below:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
camera:
  - platform: synology
    url: https://192.168.1.120:5001
    username: USERNAME
    password: PASSWORD
    verify_ssl: False

Most users will need to set valid_ssl to false unless they have installed a valid SSL certificate in place of the built in self-signed certificate.
