Synology compatible Amcrest wireless IP camera

I am looking to install this setup (Synology compatible Amcrest wireless IP camera) I actually just received the Synology and hard drives and looking if this will work over wireless due to the fact of not being able to run cable.

Synology 4 bay NAS DiskStation DS418play

WD Red 8TB NAS Hard Disk Drive – 5400 RPM Class SATA 6Gb/s 128MB Cache 3.5 Inch – WD80EFZX

Amcrest ProHD Outdoor 1080P WiFi Wireless IP Security Bullet Camera – IP67 Weatherproof, 1080P (1920TVL), IP2M-852W

90° Viewing Angle, Night Vision and PTZ Digital Zoom IP3M-941B

All supported IP cameras will work with Synology wirelessly. Cable is always more reliable solution but if your wifi signal is strong enough then there will be no problem. Weaker WiFi would mean, interrupted recording/connectivity.

This specific model IP2M-852W has not been tested according to Synology page, but most of the time Synology have no time to test every single camera because there are thousands of them available in the market.

Here is a list of Amcrest cameras Synology have managed to do tests:
