One of the neat things you can do with Thecus's NAS options is to incorporate a network camera for surveillance. Up to five cameras can be linked to the Thecus N5200 allowing you to monitor areas with the images saved in a network accessible storage solution. It's a relatively low cost solution that can be a big benefit. There are five supported models for now but I bet they add more as time goes along.
