Adding a network-attached storage system like the QNAP TS-x51 Series NAS to your home network can boost your home’s intelligence in ways you probably never considered. It consolidates, centralizes, and syncs all your music, movies, photos, documents, and other data, then makes it all available on-demand to just about any connected device: phones, tablets, TVs, and PCs. QNAP is also the first NAS manufacturer to be fully compatible with leading home automation systems like Control4 and Crestron, allowing you to integrate tons of exciting smart home operations into one convenient portal. To aid in security, NAS can even integrate with supported IP cameras, allowing you to toggle between surveillance footage from your home and movies or videos on the same screen right in your living room.
