UniFi Video 3.7.3 Release

by Ubiquiti Employee on ‎07-27-2017 11:31 AM

System Requirements

  • NVR appliance or a 64-bit OS from the Files section below
  • Intel Atom D2500 CPU
  • 100GB HDD
  • 4GB RAM
  • Google Chrome
  • 500GB HDD or larger


Important Notes

  • All Linux commands below are for the NVR appliance and Debian 7. Different Linux distributions will have slightly different commands.
  • Updating from a UniFi Video installation prior to 3.3.0 might take an hour or longer, depending on the amount of recordings in the database. To get up and running immediately, perform a clean install instead of upgrading.
  • Your Ubiquiti Account (SSO) is the same account you use to login to the community forum. If you want to use a different account for UniFi Video, first log out of the community before setting up UniFi Video for cloud access.
  • When adding a new camera, your camera password will be reset and configurable under NVR Settings.  Username remains the same.
  • Systems that are not the hardware NVR (airVision-C or UVC-NVR) should have some form of an NTP daemon installed.
  • Email and push alert enable/disable settings are now per-user instead of being system-wide. Alert settings can be found under the "Alerts" tab of each configured user.


  • Windows: Run Installer as Administrator
  • Hardware NVR/Linux Install via apt:
    apt-get update; apt-get upgrade; apt-get clean
  • Hardware NVR/Debian Install manual installation (other Linux files are linked at the bottom of this post, simply change the URL and filename to the appropriate operating system):
    wget http://dl.ubnt.com/firmwares/unifi-video/3.7.3/unifi-video_3.7.3-Debian7_amd64.deb
    sudo dpkg -i unifi-video_3.7.3-Debian7_amd64.deb
