synology camera platform allows you to watch the live streams of your Synology Surveillance Station based IP cameras in Home Assistant.
Synology has disabled the livestreaming API and the component is currently broken if you are using Surveillance Station version 8.2.3-5828. There is an unsupported preview fix available. (8.2.3-5829) - Instructions can be found here for updating manually.

# Example configuration.yaml entry camera: - platform: synology url: https://192.168.1.120:5001 username: YOUR_USERNAME password: YOUR_PASSWORD timeout: 15 verify_ssl: false

verify_ssl to false unless they have installed a valid SSL/TLS certificate in place of the built in self-signed certificate.
