It would be great if Ubiquiti would provide official Docker images, both for UniFi Video and UniFi Controller.

"Snooze" Motion Detected Emails

Submitted by - Saturday

Add a series of buttons (10 minutes, 30 minutes, 1 hour, 3 hours, 5 hours) to motion detected emails to temporarily stop motion detected emails from being sent.

Push Notifications based on Motion Zones instead of just the Camera

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

I would be very nice to be able to specify push notifications for certain motion zones.   Especially for Cameras that are monitoring outdoor areas where only certain zones would have a higher risk/priority then others.

 

Take for instance this image of my zones.  It would be nice to still record on motion for all areas but to only get notifications for the yard or driveway.  As a car going by every 5 mins would be more of a false negative to me then something worth looking at.  Obviously i have many other false negatives that factor in like shadows and trees/bushes swaying but it would definitely be helpful to specify a zone as either a motion/notfication zone or just just a motion zone.

SD Card failover

Submitted by - 3 weeks ago
Status: New Idea

In the event of a network failure, Unifi cameras cannot record to the NVR. This means all video is lost. There should be an option, if network fails, to record to an SD card.

 

If possible, additional settings should be available. For instance, normal operation records to an NVR on motion only. During a network failure, camera(s) record to the SD card at all times. In addition, it would be very useful if when the network comes up again, you have the option to move all video from the SD card to your NVR (or other external location).

Automatic Video Archive

Submitted by - a month ago
Status: New Idea

I'd like to have the ability to automatically archive recordings to external storage.  The situation is a manufacturing plant with several cameras (20+) doing full daytime recording.  They need to retain recordings for a year or more in case of a Workers Comp claim.  Having that much storage inside a single server is not pratical (over 150gb/day of video is generated), so being able to archive off to external storage that can be swapped and stored would be needed.  The Video files could then be viewed on a device the external storage is plugged into without the need to install uniFi Video.  I would like to see the days recordings from each camera archived into hour long files and copied to the external storage. There are some clunkly external ways of doing this, but It would be so much nicer to be built into UniFi Video. 

Motion detection profiles

Can we have Different Motion Detection profiles which can be chosen in the schedualed recording area?

 

eg. Focus on a door between 9am to 5pm then focus on the whole room from 5pm to 9am?

Push notification (image) to Apple Watch

When motion is detected, I would like an image sent to my Apple Watch, so I instantly can see if there is an intruder.

New Product Suggestion for IR Cameras

Submitted by - 2 weeks ago
Status: New Idea

I currently have 16 outdoor security cameras with IR running in the 850nm wavelength.  

 

Most cameras have a 50ft IR range with a couple at 100ft.  The IR on the cameras wasn't strong enough to reach important areas of the backyard.  I purchased a 400ft IR Illuminator and installed it on one of the trees in the backyard aiming at what I wanted to have lit up.

 

These can be purchased in many places, but I figured it would be a great option for another product in the Ubiquiti Store.  These Illuminators are great.  If placed in the right location, you only need one.  I've attached a picture of a screenshot on one of the backyard cameras.  The IR on the camera has a 50ft range but you will see where the Illuminator is located as it is a bit obvious with how bright it is.  It lights up the driveway all the way through the back yard to the gate and shed.  Its pointed down a bit too far currently as you can tell by the brightness of the snow.  

 

In any event.....illuminators would be a great addition to the Ubiquiti line of Video Accessories.

Consistent PoE Requirements

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

Could we please get consistent PoE requirements across devices?  The UVC-G3-DOME will work with any of my PoE switches.  The UVC-G3 won't work with any (including my 802.11at switch).  It's 2016 for pete's sake.  I shouldn't have to use your injector to power a camera when I have my own PoE switches.

 

It's a standard.  Why can't you adhere to it?

Hardware Request: Temperature Sensor

Would be great to have some integrated temp sensor on the camera, especially for the outdoor models.

IR Sensitivity Adjustments

Submitted by - a week ago
Status: New Idea

I would like to see a much wider range of sensitivity adjustment and also a separate setting for delta.  In some situations the low light without IR is more desirable as the IR makes the image blurred and the IR false trigger on dust, bugs, etc.

 

What I propose is a picklist range from perhaps -5 to +5 instead of just the 3 presently available.

 

As for the delta, in some installations, the IR reflection may cause the camera to flip/flop as the IR illumination triggers the sensor to turn off the IR.  It is not always possible to relocate the camera away from the source of reflection.

Mail From NVR-Name rather than UniFi Video

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

Please can you change the NVR software to send email alerts

  From: "The Name Of My NVR" <the email of my nvr>

rather than

  From: "UniFi Video" <the email of my nvr>

 

because I have more than one to look after and some email clients don't show the email address when a friendly name is present, which could lead to me becoming confused when they all just say they're "UniFi Video", and I'm easily confused.

 

Thank you!

Please add the timeline feature to the mobile apps.  The "thumbnail" search is very clumsy for mobile use.

Manual record button in Live View

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

I would like to see a recording light and manual record button within the live view when only record on motion is enabled. There are times when I have been monitoring the live feed and can plainly see activity occurring on one of the cameras, but due to either the motion not meeting the established percentage or maybe not long enough, no recording takes place. I would like to have the ability to see for sure in the live feed when the cameras are recording an event and when they are not (think red light on a camcorder) and if I see activity and the camera is not recording for one reason or another, to have the ability to manually start recording without having to leave the live stream. I believe this would be very helpful for those systems that are monitored often.

UniFi Video for Apple TV

 Title says it.

 

But if you'd like more datails, when app is launched, go straight into camera or camera map view (configurable.) So, the user can app switch directly into the feeds.

Motion Triggered HTTP Requests

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

When motion is detected, professionals don't want an email. We want to integrate with other systems and respond accordingly.

 

AXIS accomplishes this by giving you a field in which to enter a URL that the camera will POST to upon motion being detected over the set threshold.

 

Example:

 

When motion detected for 4 seconds load: http://www.mydomain.com/events/motion.php?action=alarm

 

It would make the Unifi Platform that much more compelling of a business decision.

configurable login time-out value

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

For some reason, Unifi Video logs me out of my session frequently (vs my Unifi wireless controller which can keep me logged in overnight).

 

It would be helpful to make the log-in timeout time configureble.

VLAN In Camera

Submitted by - 2 weeks ago
Status: New Idea

In the network configuration, like setting a static IP address, allow you to set a static VLAN# (for instance 3)

 

I have seen many IP Phone's have this feature.
