Network Video Recorder NVR216

Synology Network Video Recorder NVR216 is the first PC-less, all-in-one, and energy efficient private surveillance solution from Synology. Featuring a dedicated HDMI output to display 1080p Surveillance Station on a monitor without the need for a computer. NVR216 is available in 4 or 9 channels configuration with each camera configured at 720p/30FPS.

Highlights
1080p HDMI output for comprehensive interactive monitoring Available in 4 or 9 channels configuration Easy to deploy and easy to use Expandable storage capacity up to 4 HDDs with DX213 Small footprint NVR runs 24/7 below 15W Mobile apps ready for on-the-go surveillance
PC-less, All-in-one Private Surveillance Solution
Synology Network Video Recorder NVR216 makes surveillance monitoring and playback simple. After the initial set up, users can simply connect an HDMI monitor and keyboard/mouse to setup their Surveillance Station without the need for a PC. Synology NVR216 supports video recording of up to 4 or 9 network cameras when each camera is configured at 720p/30FPS within a network. Without requiring any costly computer, NVR216 is a compact all-in-one solution for monitoring live feeds, changing IP camera settings, and even browsing stored video footage.

User Friendly Interface and Wide-ranging Compatibility
Thanks to the versatile features of Surveillance Station, NVR216 is suitable for retail stores or small scale deployment. NVR216 has a total of three USB ports with one of the USB ports being USB 3.0. Users can connect a mouse, or keyboard to easily navigate between different camera streams and use the audio input port to connect a microphone and communicate via two-way audio enabled cameras. In the event of power failure, NVR216 supports Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) to ensure continuous power supply and can safely power down before the UPS battery runs out.

24/7 Security Solution for Everyone, Everywhere
Synology Surveillance Station offers a centralized interface to manage and monitor IP cameras in your shop, office, or home. In addition to its intuitive setup and hassle-free user experience, Surveillance Station features an optimized Live View panel with on-screen operations, smart analytics tools such as motion detection, and an alert system that sends instant notifications through DS cam, SMS, and E-mail when any suspicious behavior is detected.



Expandable Recording Storage for Growing Needs
NVR216 comes with one eSATA port, allowing connection to Synology Expansion Unit DX2131 to expand the storage from 2 to 4 drives. With DX213 connected, users are able to create a RAID 5 volume to further enlarge the usable space and safely protect valuable video footage.

Wallet-Friendly & Energy-Efficient
NVR216 is engineered with energy efficiency in mind. It is extremely quiet and requires only 14.14W when paired with 9 channels of camera streaming and continuous recording. It only consumes as little power as one energy saving light bulb. As a PC-less surveillance solution, NVR216 economizes on both equipment and energy costs in the long-run.
All Synology products are produced with RoHS compliant parts and packed with recyclable packing materials. Synology acknowledges the responsibility as a global citizen to continually work to reduce the environmental impact of every product produced.

Synology NVR Server NVR216 (4CH) reviews

Is there a difference between network drive, backup drive, network hard drive and nas drive?

There is no physical difference between a network drive, backup drive, network hard drive and NAS drive, the MAIN difference is about the use of the equipment. So:

A Network Drive is a area on storage that is useable to anyone on the network and will be visible to the device you are using if you have the correct login/password.

A Backup Drive is a storage device is a area of NAS or DAS storage that is used JUST for backups and only for writing, not reading - it backs up one or multiple devices on a regular basis.


A Network Hard Drive is the same as a network drive, but instead of a portion of online storage that is network/internet accessible, it is an entire disk drive. Much larger and often includes a RAID drive acting as a fall-back.

A NAS Drive can do all of the above. It can be set up to be a backup drive for all your devices, it can make either a portion or ALL of the storage available over the internet or network, it can do all of these at the same time and can give you much, much more access options thanks to NAS software from the likes of QNAP, Synology, WD, Asustor, Buffalo and Drobo.

What is a server at home?

A server at home is a network attached storage device (NAS) that is like a computer, but with the emphasis on storage space. They can be purchased for as little as £100 and mean all your data can be accessed, used and backed up to and from overt the internet or your home network (WiFi etc). Bigger and more expensive home servers can do more, such as virtual computers, surveillance recording and multimedia access.

What is meant by diskless NAS?

A Diskless NAS means that it a network storage device that is sold without any Hard Drives inside. Many NAS Brands like WD and Buffalo will only sell their NAS server devices with Drives already installed - this can often increase the price significantly, as well as limit the Hard Drives you want to install. A diskless NAS is a device that you can choose which drives, how many and the capacity you want and install them yourself, for a more bespoke NAS storage device. Installing the Hard Drives is very easy and you can often save a lot of time and improve your long term storage by choosing a diskless NAS and selecting the drives yourself.

What is a NAS external hard drive?

A NAS external Hard Drive is an external storage device that, unlike USB 3.0 and eSATA external Hard Drives, is accessed used the internet or your home network. So that means you can access the contents (DATA) of the NAS on your iPhone, iPad, Smart TV, PS4, XBOX One, Sonos Sound System, Bose system, Laptop, Smartphone and pretty much any DLNA enabled device without having to connect to it with a cable. Meaning you do not need to carry duplicates of all your data on all your devices, but can have one central NAS storage devices that all the other devices can access.

How do I connect to my NAS remotely?

You can connect to your NAS server remotely with the mobile applications that are free with your NAS Brand manufacturer for iOS and Android. Alternatively you can use a number of desktop applications from the big brands QNAP and Synology NAS to access your device remotely. Lastly you can create a network and internet accessible drive with iSCSI and then setup software (Virtual Machine, backup, Surveillance and more) on your Mac or Windows machine to read and write to the NAS remotely.

What are the different types of RAID?

The most popular and recommended RAID levels for a 2-Bay NAS and 4-Bay NAS from Synology and QNAP are:

RAID 0 - Meaning all drive storage is pooled together into 1 big drive - MOST UNSAFE
RAID 1 - Drives are duplicated so you lose half the available storage, but have a complete, up to the second copy of your data
RAID 5 - You lose 1 drive of data storage space, but data is spread across all the available drives and a small piece of information called PARITY is created each wave/stripe that makes a blueprint of all the data
RAID 6 - Same as above, but it removes two drives worth of space and protects you against the loss of two Hard Drives

What is a RAID hard drive?

A RAID Hard drive is a Hard Disk Drive that is designed to be used in a RAID configuration - in simple terms it is a drive that can be installed with multiple other drives of the same type (such as WD Red RAID Drives, WD Purples Surveillance RAID Drives and Seagate Ironwolf NAS RAID Drives). These are designed to be on for long periods of time and for handling data that is shared and/or duplicated across multiple drives at once - constructed with better vibration, head and access controls). Most other drives are designed to work on their own.

What is raid on a NAS?

RAID on a NAS is a means to protect yourself from losing your data due to hard drive failure. Hard Drives are the 2nd most vulnerable area of a NAS device and if a drive fails and you do not have a copy of the data elsewhere, you will most likely lose it all. RAID gives you a safety net (called REDUNDANCY) which means you can afford to lose 1, 2 or even 3 hard drives with the right configuration. The most common options are:

RAID 0 - Meaning all drive storage is pooled together into 1 big drive - MOST UNSAFE
RAID 1 - Drives are duplicated so you lose half the available storage, but have a complete, up to the second copy of your data
RAID 5 - You lose 1 drive of data storage space, but data is spread across all the available drives and a small piece of information called PARITY is created each wave/stripe that makes a blueprint of all the data
RAID 6 - Same as above, but it removes two drives worth of space and protects you against the loss of two Hard Drives

What is a personal cloud storage device?

A personal Cloud storage device is a piece of Hardware, Like a NAS, that gives you the access, freedom, speed and utility of popular 3rd party cloud providers such as Dropbox, Google Drive, iCloud, Amazon S3 and more. However unlike those providers that hold your data on a server farm hundreds or thousands of miles away, where you it can be broken into, a Personal Cloud (NAS) lives in your home/office and can be protected with both bespoke AES-256bit encryption, individual login credentials and if the worst case scenario, can be simply unplugged from the network/internet.


It is also considerably cheaper in the long term.

How do you connect to a NAS?

You can connect to a device in several ways:


- You can connect to a NAS via your home network as long as it is connected to the same router/switch that your other devices are connected to, via cable or over Wi-Fi (the devices, not the NAS)


- You can connect over the internet using the NAS manufacturer’s respective software on desktop or mobile platforms for Mac, Windows and Android devices


- You can also access the data as a network drive (where the location of the drive with be an IP - 192.168. etc.) and then the drive can be read and written to as needed


Thank you

How does a NAS device work?

Excellent Question. A NAS devices like a computer that is dedicated to storing data that is made accessible across all your internet enabled devices. It connects to your home network (in simple terms, the internet connected network in your home or office) and makes the data that is store on it accessible. You can also access the data from outside the phone via WiFi at hotspots and other buildings, or via your mobile 3G or 4G internet connection.

16/11/2017 | Popular Question | GB Flag |
Do you really need a NAS?

If you have data spread across multiple devices without a single backup location, then YES, you really do need a NAS drive. As it will make backing up with multiple devices easier, more automated and reliable.


If you are a business with large amounts of data that needs to be accessible quickly, across multiple machines or outside your office environment for off-site staff or clients, then YES you needs a NAS.


If you want your internet accessible data to be 100% inaccessible when needed (for security) and are considering a Cloud provider or a NAS, BUY A NAS!!! It is cheaper in the long run and can have individual and bespoke security measures.

Hi Span, Can the 4CH be upgraded to support more cameras by purchasing additional licenses in the future? Thanks, Ricky
Hi Ricky,


The NVR 4CH can only handle 4 channels and same with the NVR 9CH can only handle 9 channels. If you are looking for more IP cameras I would highly recommend the Qnap TS-253A
Compered with the Synology, the QNAP comes with four channels and can go up to x40. It has 4GB of Ram, HDMI port and x2 LAN ports that can be aggregated. Over all the QNAP can be used as a traditional NAS where the Synology is a dedicated NVR system. I have added a compare page for you to look over. 
If you have any question please do not hesitate to contact me.

Please, can you explain the difference between NVR216 and NVR215j ? Thanks a lot
Hi Fabio,

NVR is a NAS that is dedicated to survalance and comes with either 4-9CH licences. There is no such thing as a NVR215j - You might be looking at the DS215J
If you are looking for a cost effective NAS then i would suggest the 215J - But if you want a survailance machine then the NVR would be the unit for you.

Regarding ordering, you can purchase your NAS unit with drives on our website (with installation and testing included at no additional charge), however if you send me an email with your requirements, your name, contact number and address, I can arrange better prices than those available online.

Thank you for contacting SPAN.COM and I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,

I have heard that this unit arrives as the Synology NVR216 4CH and the Synology NVR216 9CH, is that true? and What are the main differences between them? RAM? CPU? Are they both Surveillance NAS?

That is True. The NVR216 arrives in 2 Versions. Tehy are the The Synology NVR216 (4CH) and the Synology NVR (9CH). The only difference between them is the number of channels they are configured to with each camera configured to 720p or 30FPS. They both utilize a 1GHZ dual Core CPU which is an Embedded NVR SoC chip (Surveillance specialised). Additionally they both arrive with 1GB DR RAM which cannot be upgraded. Both are 2 bay units and arrive with teh following ports - USB 3.0 x 1 for an external drive backup, USB 2.0 x 2 for External Drive support as well as connecting a keyboard and Mouse for a standalone Surveillance device, eSATA x 1 for the DX213 expansion NAS, HDMI x 1 to connect a visual device such as a HDTV and 3.5mm audio jack x 2 (input/output) for Audio NVR support.

Once again, to summarize the only difference, 


The Synology NVR216 4CH is configured to support upto 4 channels with each camera configured to 720p 30FPS

The Synology NVR216 9CH  is configured to support upto 9 channels with each camera at 720p 30FPS

I hope that helped and I recommend pre-ordering this item with us to ensure you recieve your unit in the first shipment arriving with us shortly.

When will this unit be released? How many channels will it support? Is it a HDMI NAS? Thank you. Ben
Thank you for your question.The unit is available in 4 and 9 Channel configurations. It has a HDMI port, however this is predominantly used for Surveillance station and not for typical NAS access and media display as you would find in a number of the QNAP NAS models (such as the QNAP TS-253A and the QNAP TS-253 PRO). We recommend this NAS for a standalone Surveillance station. Thank you.
