  • 100GB HDD
  • 4GB RAM

Important Notes

  • airCam (gen1) cameras are not supported in 3.2+. Please stick to the 3.1.x chain if you have airCams.
  • All Linux commands below are for the NVR appliance and Debian 7. Different Linux distributions will have slightly different commands.
  • 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.
  • When adding a new camera, your camera password will be reset and configurable under NVR Settings. Username remains the same.
  • 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.


  • Windows: Run Installer as Administrator
  • Hardware NVR/Debian Install (other Linux files are linked at the bottom of this post, simply change the URL and filename to the appropriate operating system): wget http://dl.ubnt.com/firmwares/unifi-video/3.6.1/unifi-video_3.6.1~Debian7_amd64.debsudo dpkg -i unifi-video_3.6.1~Debian7_amd64.deb
