Reolink IP camera compatibility with NAS like Qnap and Synology


I was wondering if you know if the RLC-520 will work with the synology security suite.

I saw a note somewhere saying it only works with a reolink device.

Looking to connect via cat6 to a synology NAS

Yes, all IP cameras which are not add-on items of their NVR closed system or battery-powered models will work. I have attached their compatibility table below:


Compatibility with Third Party Software

Reolink IP cameras (except Argus Series, Reolink Go Series, Keen, Reolink Lumus, E1, B400, D400, B800, D800) are well compatible with third-party software.

Please check the compatibility of our products and third party software below.
