Assuming your NAS supports it, you should be able to do something
like e.g.

  update reply {
    Session-Timeout := 600

to cause the remote client to have to reauth after 600 seconds
rather than the NAS default. Of course, you want some mechanism to
deny them access when they come back asking for access the next
