UniFi NVR Driver

21 posts in this topic

I have a UniFi NVR driver that I have been working on that I am ready for 2 beta testers.  Please Note the driver is VERY limited due to an incomplete, undocumented and unsupported API.

The driver support Snapshot and RTSP H264 video.  It doesn't support PTZ controls or anything like that because there is no API for it.

Due to the lack of capabilities, I have priced the driver what I think is a fair price.

If in the future, the API improves, I will write more features and may raise the price for future purchases.

Please let me know if you are interested in beta testing. Please be a dealer/programmer so that we can quickly iterate if needed.

I'm looking forward to seeing how the driver works.  Thanks for developing it.

I currently have the NVR working through the generic IP camera driver.. bit of a mission getting the snapshot and RTSP working but it works.. how will your driver differ?

It won't be significantly different as UniFi Video has no real api.

You will have to provide the following things in the driver properties:

1) API Key

2) camera ID

3) RTSP ID

Then the driver will take care of the rest.

Are you a dealer?

I work alongside dealers but am not one directly, the biggest thing I am looking for is motion detection to kick off events - have you found a method to do this?

We have at least two projects with NVR's in them if you want feedback.

I was given a reason that made this not financially worth it. I will let the person who shared with me post a more detailed reason if they can and want to

if that is providing H264 and snapshot video, i dont think there is going to be any advantages to my driver
