A Quick Look and Review of the Ubiquiti airVision NVR Appliance

The Ubiquiti airVision Indoor and airVision Outdoor ranges offer cost effective video solutions. With the included Ubiquiti AirVision IP Camera Management System, managing your system is easy through a browser based interface. In June 2013 Ubiquiti announced the release of airVision 2.0, their next generation of  IP video solutions. The first airVision 2.0 product is the Ubiquiti airVision NVR.

The airVision NVR is a plug and play appliance meaning it works straight out of the box with minimum hassle. With the capacity to store up to 1,200 hours of video at 480p resolution or 400 hours of video at 720p, the NVR will be a solid asset to a video surveillance system. The video footage is stored in High Definition on the 500GB Hard Drive. The NVR works with all the existing airVision products including the airCam Mini, airCam Dome and airCam IP Cameras.

Look and Feel

The unit is stylish as you would expect from any Ubiquiti product. The plastic covering provided when new indicates that fingerprints will cover the shiny surface once they have been removed. The stand allows the unit to be stood upright (seen below) which helps to keep it cool. If required flat there are small magnetic feet that can be put on the underside to prevent the bottom surface from being scratched. The NVR Appliance is lightweight and relatively small meaning it will not be difficult finding a place to accommodate it in an existing system.

The Bottom Line

The airVision NVR is a stylish plug and play appliance that can store up to 1200 hours of footage. With the ease of setup and browser based management, the airVision NVR is a cost effective addition to an IP camera system.

    Could I use this with IP cameras that aren’t Ubiquiti branded?

    Hi Hogwam,
    AirVision software will only work with Ubiquiti branded cameras. However, some of our customers have had success the other way around, using Ubiquiti cameras with non-Ubiquiti NVRs.
