Locking or Unlocking VisualStation

If you wish to lock or unlock VisualStation, click the lock button located on the task bar. Then select the option marked Lock me and click OK to save.

Why isnt VisualStation detected on my local network? If you are experiencing network problems, please try the below suggestions:

Make sure your network router is working properly. If you do not know how to change the settings of your network equipment, such as DSL or cable routers, please contact the manufacturer directly. If you are using equipment provided by an internet service provider, please call them for more details.

Turn off or unplug all devices on your network. Make sure all lights on modems or routers are off. Wait one full minute before turning on devices again. Certain VOIP modems might have batteries. Remember to remove any batteries in order to completely turn off the modem.

Restore default settings on your VisualStation. To restore default settings, find the Reset button located on the back panel of your VisualStation, then press and hold until you hear a beep sounds.

Confirm network connection by connecting to Surveillance Station using a computer on the same network. If you cannot connect to the Surveillance Station, then you may need to check the settings of your Synology NAS.

Update the firmware and drivers of all network devices, including routers or modems. Contact device manufacturers for more details.

If your network setup includes multiple switches or routers, try to isolate the problem by connecting your VisualStation and Synology NAS to the same switch or router, or try connecting both to a different network.

Why do I see the warning messages Unpaired, Disabled, or Disconnected? Please see the graph below for an explanation of each message.

Message Explanation

Unpaired VisualStation is not paired with a Synology NAS. For instructions regarding pairing VisualStation, please see the Quick Installation Guide that came with your VisualStation or check Surveillance Station help.

2.2 Exclusive Remedy. If Customer gives notice of noncompliance with any of the warranties set forth in Section 2.1 within the applicable Warranty Period in the manner set forth below, then, upon verification of the noncompliance by Synology, Synology will, at Synology's option: (a) use commercially reasonable efforts to repair the Product, or (b) replace the noncomplying Product or part thereof upon return of the complete Product in accordance with Section 2.3 The foregoing sets forth Synology's entire liability and Customer's sole and exclusive remedy for any breach of warranty under Section 2.1 or any other defect or deficiency in the Product.

Except as expressly permitted by this Warranty, neither party will be bound by, and each party specifically objects to, any term, condition or other provision that conflicts with the provisions of this Warranty that is made by the other party in any purchase order, receipt, acceptance, confirmation, correspondence or otherwise, unless each party specifically agrees to such provision in writing. Further, if this Warranty conflicts with any terms or conditions of any other agreement entered into by the parties with respect to the Product, this Warranty will prevail unless the other agreement specifically references the sections of this Warranty that it supersedes.

4.4 Applicable Law. Unless expressly prohibited by local law, this Warranty is governed by the laws of the State of Washington, U.S.A. without regard to any conflict of law principles to the contrary. The 1980 U.N. Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods or any successor thereto does not apply.

4.5 Dispute Resolution. Any dispute, controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this Warranty, the Product or services provided by Synology with respect to the Product or the relationship between Customers residing within the United States and Synology will be resolved exclusively and finally by arbitration under the current commercial rules of the American Arbitration Association, except as otherwise provided below. The arbitration will be conducted before a

single arbitrator, and will be limited solely to the dispute between Customer and Synology. The arbitration, or any portion of it, will not be consolidated with any other arbitration and will not be conducted on a class-wide or class action basis. The arbitration shall be held in King County, Washington, U.S.A. by submission of documents, by telephone, online or in person as determined by the arbitrator at the request of the parties. The prevailing party in any arbitration or legal action occurring within the United States or otherwise shall receive all costs and reasonable attorneys fees, including any arbitration fee paid by the prevailing party. Any decision rendered in such arbitration proceedings will be final and binding on the parties, and judgment may be entered thereon in any court of competent jurisdiction. Customer understands that, in the absence of this provision, Customer would have had a right to litigate any such dispute, controversy or claim in a court, including the right to litigate claims on a class-wide or class-action basis, and Customer expressly and knowingly waives those rights and agrees to resolve any disputes through binding arbitration in accordance with the provisions of this Section 4.5. For Customers not residing within the United States, any dispute, controversy or claim described in this section shall be finally resolved by arbitration conducted by three neutral arbitrators in accordance with the procedures of the R.O.C. Arbitration Law and related enforcement rules. The arbitration shall take place in Taipei, Taiwan, R.O.C., and the arbitration proceedings shall be conducted in English or, if both parties so agree, in Mandarin Chinese.

The arbitration award shall be final and binding on the parties and may be enforced in any court having jurisdiction. Nothing in this Section shall be deemed to prohibit or restrict Synology from seeking injunctive relief or seeking such other rights and remedies as it may have at law or equity for any actual or threatened breach of any provision of this Warranty relating to Synology's intellectual property rights.
