Before we take our deep firewall dive I wanted to put this demo of the Ubiquiti UniFi Video NVR software package out here. The software is FREE so if you get the chance download it and give it a spin!

You can only use the software with Ubiquiti UniFi Video G2 and G3 cameras if you are on version 3.2 or higher.

Gen 1 (airCams) are all EOL and not supported in newer versions of the software.

In this tour I will show you all the options available in the GUI!

From Ubiquiti:

The UniFi Video software is pre-installed on the
UniFi NVR for quick and easy deployment. The UniFi
Video software can also be downloaded and installed
on a Windows/Linux system.

Feature-Packed User Interface Accessible from a web
browser, the UniFi Video interface was designed to be
easy to use yet packed with advanced features. The
UniFi Video interface is incredibly intuitive and loaded
with powerful features such as detailed statistical
reporting, multiple views, versatile camera settings,
advanced analytics, and customizable event recordings.
Plug and Play Installation Automatic camera
detection in the UniFi Video software makes it easy to
install and deploy cameras. UniFi Video Camera settings
are integrated into the UniFi Video software. Configure
camera settings, reboot the camera, or upgrade the
firmware from the UniFI Video interface.
Mobile Support The UniFi Video web interface is
accessible on iOS and Android tablets and phones.
Camera-Based Motion Detection The UniFi Video
cameras handle motion detection instead of the server,
relieving the workload on the server and ensuring that
compression and noise won’t affect motion detection.
Additional Live Views Playlists can be created with
a configurable live camera feed rotation. Define the
cameras you want included in the playlist and how long
you want them to appear on the screen before moving
on to the next live feed.
Disk Management Features UniFi Video has
automatic recording management to free up disk
space. User‑definable disk space and date-based auto
purge allow users to keep a set amount of free disk
space or automatically delete recordings after a certain
number of days. Another storage feature is the ability to
map external USB or network storage drives.
Cost-Effective Solution Shattering conventional
industry thinking, Ubiquiti offers UniFi Video’s powerful
IP surveillance software at no additional cost. No huge
upfront costs, no monthly subscription fees.
