58 room Hotel - upgraded the camera system to Ubiquiti
Description

Hi All,

 

Thought I would share my latest upgrade at Wookey Hole Caves in the UK. We have a 58 room hotel on site, which is now covered, throughout with the new G3 and G3 Dome cameras.

 

I have installed the following:

 

  • NVR with 3tb external hard drive attached
  • Unifi Switch - 250w (24 port)
  • 2 x G3
  • 10 x G3 Dome
  • 2 x UVC Dome (Cameras we already had in place on test, but will now stay)

It was a pretty simple install as you will see from the photos, tiles in most areas so the dome's were very easy to mount, plenty of Cat6 through the hotel and back to our comms rooms, again nice and easy.

 

Overall the system is great and working like a dream. Very impressed with the build quality of the new cameras and how easy they were to install. The hidden cable in the new G3's is especially great!

I'm curious about the NVR performance with the external HDD atached...

 

Thanks for the share!

Thanks for the positive comments guys! 

 

@rosswuk and I still have more on order! Taking advantage of the Ubiquiti trade in on the old AirCam models, so upgrading our main cameras on site as well! Pictures to follow.

 

@Yanx no problems, very reliable and playback is great. 3TB Samsung attached to the NVR via the USB3 port on the front. We have the same setup in our attractions with a 2TB attached to the front USB3 port and works great - will be upgrading this shortly so we can retain a month's worth of footage.

Only downside on the new software, the timeline feature is a bit temperamental and sometimes freezes the playback and GUI.

 

To add we have 3 different offices streaming the cameras most of the day, with mobile access for managers, they all love it! Recently the Police needed some footage for an incident, they couldn't rate the system highly enough, loved it!

@chrisg6341 Had a little look around this morning and msdist.co.uk have them again. I'm going to order. Thought I would mention it in case you're desperate.

@rosswuk thanks for the heads up on that one! As we speak I have just been asked to quote for a 12 camera install, so that might come in handy!
