Audiowaves in Timeline to detect sound

Submitted by - 2 weeks ago
Status: New Idea

I want to be able to look at the timeline and see how much audio is going on. Its very common for people to be right out of view or to not move much but are talking. Something like the poorly modified screenshot below.

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.

Timeline Video export progess bar

Submitted by - 3 weeks ago
Status: New Idea

When exporting large videos from timeline (larger than 10min) the system is doing a whole bunch of things behind the scenes to prep the video file. This usually takes a fair amount of time 30 seconds - 5 min depending how large of a video is being exported.

 

Most people who do this regulary know you have to wait until it is done, which results in a download popup messge, but there is no indication what is actually happening until the download popup.

 

Please include a progress bar of somekind when Timeline is overhauled in the future.

Provide official Docker images

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

SD Card failover

Submitted by -
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).

Please have a G3 UVC-PRO and add a greater zoom lens

Submitted by - 3 weeks ago
Status: New Idea

Please consider offereing a G3 PRO camera (cannot tell if it has a future or not).  Additionally, also please consider a slightly upgraded zoom lens to 6x or greater.

 

I ran into situations where the camera could not be mounted any closer and the 3x zoom was not quite enough.

 

Thank you...Dale...

Hi, 

Would be nice to have an outdoor camera with built-in temperature sensor.

Thanks,

Don`t blame the device as it`s always doing what you have asked it to do, this is not always the same as what you want.

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?

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?

iOS app - keep screen alive

Submitted by - 3 weeks ago
Status: New Idea
I would like to see that the UniFi Video iOS app would force my screen on. After half a minute or so de screen of my iPad or iPhone dims and then goes off.

Other apps like the milestone video app have a option in the settings menu to keep the screen alive. So I think it should be a quick and easy option to implement.

Thanks

Automatic Video Archive

Submitted by -
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. 

Tamper Proof External Cameras

UBNT-

 

It would be extremely useful for us if a tamper proof / vandal resistant outdoor camera was available, the current G3 cameras are easily stolen.  Perhaps a camera that can mount in a normal security camera exterior housing which would limit the amount of design.  

 

Something by Pelco would be great and be universally available, they offer multiple options for exterior mounts with tamper proof screws.

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!

 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.

We currently have a way to reboot camera's indvidually from the web, but it would be nice to beable to reboot the entire system from video.ubnt.com

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.

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

Resizeable thumbnail

I could save a lot of time looking at recordings if the captured thumbnail was a little bigger. Make the thumbnail resizeable or allow for a preference to pick between a few sizes?
