QNAP NAS as photo source


Is there a point on your roadmap where the source or photo storage can be a NAS like QNAP? I copy images and videos from various devices into my QNAP daily so attaching USB drives to a Monument is not the best design when you have multiple network storage devices. My use case as a backer is to leverage the logic of Monument photo organization algorithm when all photos are already stored on NAS. Is the team looking at their API perhaps?

This was supposed to happen in the initial FW, then it was moved to February, and now I don't know. 

I have all my photos on my QNAP Nas as well and would like to make the Monument to get the pictures directly from my NAS. 

@Monument: Any ETA on this??

@Monument, I'm also interested in the reply.  I have a similar setup, with a QNAP NAS as the main repository for my photos.

Hi Toni,

Just a clarification, we do not support NAS as main storage, and in a few places we have answered this. But, what we have in our time plan as a feature, is the NAS backup, and you're right it's experiencing some delays. We will update the time plan. We're sorry for the inconvenience.

Thank you for your support and patience.

Ideally I would like to upload photos from my QNAP *INTO* Monument. This means I just need Monument to see the QNAP on the network, perhaps similar to how it might see other networked hard drives. I was hoping to retire my QNAP as a photo storage once Monument becomes stable.

Monument indeed never mentioned to use a NAS as sourse, but as backup. However i also prefer Monument to make is possible to use the NAS as sourse. It should not be that difficult i assume?
