I was thinking about buying a Seagate NAS 2 bay Pro for networking and accessing IP surveillance cameras??? SHOULD I

Hi, I'm the Secretary of our 21 unit HOA, in California, and I we have two problems.
1. All the documents are on my computer.
2. We have 6 analog Lorex surveillance cameras (being recorded in the pool room downstairs - visible over the internet)
I was thinking I could buy a 2 bay Seagate NAS Pro and solve both issues.
I could allow the owners to access files on the Seagate.
I could install newer, better IP cameras and use the Seagate NAS to record better quality (longer lasting) video
I ordered the Seagate NAS Pro 2-Bay Diskless Network Attached Storage Drive (STDD100) from Amazon and then I read that the sofware to connect the cameras is costly (about $400 for a 6 camera license). And I'm not sure if I could be using the Seagate as a "server" for owners and for surveillance storage.... A
There is very little on-line about it.
