Introducing UniFi Video and UVC cameras: Our Newest Video Surveillance System

by Previous Employee UBNT-Austin on ‎05-09-2014 10:27 AM - last edited on ‎03-24-2015 07:55 AM by Ubiquiti Employee



Ubiquiti is pleased to introduce UniFi Video and our new UVC and UVC Pro cameras, which are now part of our UniFi family of products. UniFi Video is our latest and greatest video surveillance camera control software, retooled with all new features and integrations.


The software comes with support for our next generation UVC cameras – UVC, UVC-Dome and UVC-Pro – that feature 720 recording, IR illumination, and a brand new higher quality sensor. UVC Pro models also include 1080p recording, extreme weather protection and 3x zoom capacities.


One of the new features of the new UniFi Video will be a live view that will let you view multiple live camera feeds at once with highly customizable arrangements. This means that you can rotate easily between feeds and see everything that’s happening, as it’s happening.


Not only will you have more video access, but it will look better, too. All camera feeds and recordings captured using the new product will be in high resolution, supporting up to 1080p/30FPS on UVC-Pro models.

UniFi Video comes with deep integration with our cameras, so that you can configure and upgrade any of them quickly and easily, all within the UniFi Video user interface.


Other features of the new software include interactive statistical graph aids and zone analytics for quickly finding and recording specific details in recordings. You can also specifically define your areas of interest for setting up motion recording and notifications, allowing for even more precise readings of the footage. 


Additionally, you can customize email alerts for near instant notification when motion occurs in your surveillance area. That means that the next time you want to go away on vacation, you can do so knowing that you’ll know right away if anything is happening in your absence. Alternatively, the new ability to assign different users means that you can enable someone else to keep an eye on your footage while you’re out.

So, for customers who have a AV2.0 install, will those cameras continue to work going forward?  Is there going to be a fairly seamless integration with the new hardware/software, or will those cameras basically be stuck in an old system?

for trade and companies need to have a better vision, so is not profitable in some cases to capture the market, so if you agree is that they are on the right track.

Yes, the first generation cameras will continue to work with UniFi-Video software.

When you can order is dependent on your distributor.  From the few I've looked at and based on the forums, it appears as though most distributors are taking orders.

Nice catch!  Can I pre-order one of thoes also?



on ‎05-09-2014 12:25 PM

Where can I buy these?

on ‎05-09-2014 12:39 PM

I ordered mine from streakwave

on ‎05-09-2014 01:20 PM

The question is not so much when can we buy them, but when can we use them.

Remeber the last UniFI-____ product that came out?  The -AC?  Still waiting on stable software for that.

I don't know about anyone else, but I'm not ready to subject my paying clients to another beta test just yet.

Whose senser are you using in these new cameras and what is the lux rating?

 You guys have to give more info then this.

Night Mode: IR LED with Mechanical IR Cut Filter

 What about IR range I see no specs for IR?

Do these camers support ONVIF or are they proprity to your NVR solution? 

Will you have end user support for this "pro" camera line?


I really think this is a huge mistake for UBNT.  Stick with what your good at and give is more and better wireless options. 


on ‎05-09-2014 04:23 PM

UVC Pro has a 30 meter spec for IR.  BulletIR and DomeIR have a much shorter range, maybe 10 meters.

on ‎05-09-2014 07:09 PM

There is no pride info!!!!!

how much for all?

on ‎05-09-2014 08:02 PM

What is the wavelenght of the IR's?


So one know if they are visible or not to the eye.

on ‎05-10-2014 11:10 PM

On the PRO camera, is the 3x optical zoom MOTORIZED????

on ‎05-11-2014 02:05 AM

What`s the price for a Pro camera ?

on ‎05-11-2014 11:32 PM

The UniFi Video Pro Cam weighs 2.15kg!!!! Thats awesome!!

I can get fit hanging these guys Man Happy

can the camera send audio via ethernet? Or you need to buy this bulky cable? How would that work? if you have camera on pole near garage? where do you hide all those cable, because seems too easy just thief would press reset button and that is it.
on ‎05-18-2014 07:53 AM

The spec sheets say 1080p but they don't say how many MP the pro cam is.  1080p can be as little as 1.2MP.  I'd hope its at least a 2MP but a 3MP or 5MP would be great.

on ‎05-19-2014 11:37 AM

I think that what is mentioned as a 3X zoom is a varifocal lens from 3 to 9mm, but not motorized;  I'm right?

Are these model OnVIF compatible?

Thank you for the info.


on ‎05-19-2014 11:55 AM

You're wrong.  The Pro has motorized zoom.

on ‎05-22-2014 07:13 AM

Are the domes vandl resistant?

on ‎05-22-2014 07:21 AM

Domes are not vandal resistant and IR cannot be used if it is put inside a hardened housing.

on ‎05-22-2014 07:50 AM

When will there be a outdoor vandal resistant dome ?

on ‎05-26-2014 12:06 PM
this is the weirdest product announcement !
on ‎06-02-2014 05:45 AM

When will they be available in the UK?

on ‎06-02-2014 05:50 AM

Ubiquiti have advised us that we'll be receiving these in our August shipment.  If you need stock as soon as they arrive then, we strongly advise you to pre-order them by contacting us with your requirements before they arrive as new products do go very fast! Take the new AF5's as a case in point where our entire shipment sold before they had even been unpacked.

on ‎06-03-2014 12:44 PM
is there going to be OSX Apple version?? Will the NVR work with the new cameras? When they will be available?
by Previous Employee UBNT-Austin
on ‎06-03-2014 01:47 PM

The NVR will work with new cameras, but you'll need to update your NVR to UniFi Video. Also, previous version airCams will work with UniFi Video. The new cameras are already shipping to resellers and distributors and they can offer pricing.


on ‎09-09-2014 09:51 PM

it is Onvif compliant? 

on ‎08-19-2015 06:09 PM

No, did not work with our IP onvif test cameras...
