Surveillance station manual recording trigger

Hi. I am new to the Home Assistant community and please let me know if this post is in the wrong place.
I am extremely happy with Home assistant now as it gives not only a lot of integrations, but also provides a nice dashboard for everything.
However I would really like to be able to start continuous recording within home assistant with a camera that is connected to Synology. I believe there should be a way, but maybe anyone have done it?
