Today I saw an update to HA 116.1 and in the release notes I saw the addition of Surveillance Station cameras in the integration.
It detected 9 devices and 51 entities under the current configuration I had going.
I have 4 cameras in Synology Surveillance Station (SSS) running on my Synology NAS DS216+II
These cameras are
- 3 x HIKVision,
- 1 Foscam
I normally monitor these in HA using the generic camera platform as it’s enough to give me a quick overview.
These views usually a time lag of real time by 7-8 seconds
My Storage is done on the NAS using the facilities of Synology Surveillance Station and if I need to do any quality live viewing or timeline work then I use synology surveillance Station app on my windows 10 PC. When I use this app there is no time lag.
I thought maybe using this new feature of Synology DSM i could avoid the time lag in HA so I found the entity and set it up in lovelace.
Alas there is still the 7-8 seconds time lag
As I am running this all on a 1Gbs LAN and there is no time lag on the PC application of SSS the it points to HA.
I am running HA on an Intel NUC i3 so HA has plenty of grunt.
Can the time lag be eliminated?
