Or whatever 1980s, early 90s jargon file stuff people tried to recapture from the media. I am a total green hat, I will be as black or white hat as you pay me to be and I've been paid well to do really mundane shit over the years and sometimes fun stuff.
Is anyone using the ubiquiti unifi video software?
I am and I also have Wyze.
What cameras are you using with the Ubiquiti nvr?
Does the ubiquiti unifi only work with ubiquiti cameras
Stolen from their forum:
the UniFi Video software (UFV) only works with Ubiquiti cameras and that the UniFi Video Cameras (UVC) only work with UniFi Video software.
Ubiquiti is on record as stating that there is no intention for UFV to support other brands of camera.
The Unifi Video software can stream an RTSP feed of each camera, but the cameras have to connect to Unifi Video first.
Just a note on this in case it's missed. All of the G3 camera's, when setting them up, provide the option for "standalone" (your own RTSP server) or "UniFi Video" (their software/hardware) in the later firmware.
I have a few G3-Flex going to BlueIris without issue and no UFV in the chain.
I typically run with Dahua (or Hikvision in a pinch) mixed with their own branded NVRs or, if software based, BlueIris.
Both models of cameras are professional grade and look the part but can be a little costly.
The Dahua cameras have several models with the "Starlight" sensor which makes low light situations look fantastic and easy to identify.
Check out https://ipcamtalk.com for tons of reviews, footage, etc of many different cameras.
Dahua aren't usually sold to "end users" in North America but there's a guy on Alibaba that ships straight from China cheaply and with NA firmware. He's highly used on IPCamTalk and I've personally purchased a few dozen cameras from him. https://www.aliexpress.com/store/1859367
@scottalanmiller that's exactly I was trying to point out. Storage for the camera footage is important not just in terms of available space. There may be a case where the OP would need to directly access his recordings in case of emergency to provide them to the authorities when the host is no longer available (stolen) or damaged. Having them stored on a separate NAS inside a shared folder would certainly make the above job easier. Having said that, this can also be done by simply backing up the video files elsewhere or syncing them offsite.
