  • 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.

  • RTSP stream URLs have changed from 3.1.x.
  • Systems that are not the hardware NVR (airVision-C or UVC-NVR) should have some form of an NTP daemon installed.
