Since I requested this forum be added, I thought I could get it started. I am awaiting the delivery of my Uniview cameras and NVR that I plan to install myself. Look forward to hearing from other Uniview users and maybe sharing tips and information in this forum.

Would love to test their VMS. We have several customers that currently have UniView systems installed on their property.

I received my equipment but have not had a chance to install it yet. It is my main fall project. I have connected a couple of the cameras to the NVR and booted everything up. As promised, it is plug and play so far.

I have been testing Uniview cams, so far pretty solid. They have a good low light bullet that is built like a brick Shithouse. Here is a picture in almost total darkness tonight. Its a IPC2222ER5-DUPF40-C. This was $135 shipped from one of my vendors. They call it Starlight technology.

You may need angle the cam away from the house so that the IR isn't lighting up the siding. This will give you more IR in the field of view. We have a customer that went ahead and installed a 64 channel system, but didn't ask us for our advise on camera model or where to install them. They used the small bullets and mounted them high up on a warehouse so the IR is almost not a factor once it gets to the ground. I think the cameras may have 60ft of IR.

I've used several different UNV cameras and they are quite nice. They offer many models however and the suffixes confuse me because the specs are very similar.

If anyone has a more informed clue on how to interpret these, please share!.

Yea, I had it pushed out the night before for testing,most of the IR was in the trees and not covering my parking spots, so I pushed it back in to see how it would go. Its worked fine on my Dahua NVr and motion works fine. With a little bit of light it has a pretty good picture. This is the fixed 4mm version.

Yea It looks like a good cam but here in the states price wise it would be around $200 Us Dollars, Converting to the Romanian RON would be like $860, so one reason I use Dahua Instead Of Uniview.
Thats the reason? Because Dahua are cheaper? Im my country uniview are cheaper but dahua cams are much expensive. I hope picture quality of uniview is the same.

Uniview would be my second choice, I like to have different supply vendors and YES price has something to do with it when you are purchasing say 25 of them. They are solid and built well.

Best you stick with the same NVR as cameras.
