ASUSTOR makes some of the best NAS for home and the company's enclosures are also on the best NAS for home surveillance. Adding a Reolink security camera to an ASUSTOR NAS enclosure is a simple process that takes but a few minutes.

How to connect a Reolink camera

In this guide, I'm going to be using the Reolink E1 Pro and ASUSTOR LOCKERSTOR 4 AS6604T, but the process will largely be the same for other compatible Reolink cameras and ASUSTOR NAS.

  1. Log into your NAS ADM OS.
  2. Open App Central and select ASUSTOR apps.

  3. Click on Surveillance Center.
  4. Click on Install.
  5. Open Surveillance Center after it's installed.
  6. Click on Settings > Quick Start to launch the wizard.
  7. If the NAS does not detect the camera automatically, select "Add manually."
  8. Enter all the necessary details.
  9. Hit the next arrow once everything is set.

  10. Configure resolution, name, format, and other settings.
  11. Configure the recording schedule.
  12. Set storage limits and other advanced settings.

Having your Reolink camera connected to a NAS is a great way to store recorded footage. An SD card can not only fill up quickly, but it can also be physically removed. Storing data on a NAS is yet another line of defense.
