Very nice

This app is great. It is very well made, well designed, easy to use, and reliable (much more than the old UniFi Video app).

The one issue I have is that the audio stream skips every 4-5 seconds. This seems to happen regardless of camera (wired g3 or wireless micro), regardless of video resolution (e.g. even at 720p), regardless of connection speed (e.g. even when on a fast connection on the local network), and regardless of whether live or recorded. Therefore it should be a problem either with the app, or the software running on the CloudKey Gen2+.. I am not sure. It seems fixable (i.e. a software issue and not a connection capacity issue), therefore my rating is down by 1 star.

UniFi Protect

UniFi Protect allows me to monitor all the entrances to my house while I’m away.

After downloading the app, I was able to login with my Ubiquiti cloud account. It pulled up all my existing cameras and settings.

I was then able to add one new camera via the app. (Note: if the cameras are not on the same subnet as your controller, you will need to go to the web interface of the camera and point to where the controller is.)

For some reason, none of the camera settings I make on the app will save. Enable HDR, nope. Rename camera, nope. Change motion zones, nope. I currently have to go on the controller via Safari to make changes.

I have not tried to add users, so I don’t know if this area works or not.

Being able to live view or look through history is great. I can see multiple cameras at once or click on one to get a full screen view. This is where having a fast upload connection at home helps.

Other notes
This app will crash occasionally when going to full screen or switching between cameras.

I get notifications when motion is detected or camera goes offline.

Wish List
Apple Watch notifications.
Apple TV app for viewing live feeds.

This app allows me to monitor my home while away. However, until I can manage my cameras and the app crashing is fixed, this app doesn’t offer much benefit to me.

I will adjust my review as new versions are released.

Tested on:
iPhone X, iOS 12.3.1

Blown Away

I recently upgraded from UniFi Video. I’ve read reviews the last few months waiting for the IOS app to develop further. I am absolutely blown away. This app and overall product lineup makes an outstanding home surveillance system. It is so well thought out. The ability to so quickly scroll through video makes it so much more useful than any video surveillance system I have used, including much more expensive systems installed by professional integrators. Thank you to the Ubiquity folks for creating a great product line and to the app coders for creating such an elegant app! The combination of home network and surveillance management is just awesome.
