List of Compatible SD Cards for Uniview IP Cameras

Compatible SD Cards for Uniview IP Cameras

SD Cards for Uniview: Uniview produces a number of IP Cameras with a built in MicroSD Card Slot for on board recording. You may have also heard of the term ‘Edge’ Recording, which allows an IP Camera to record to a MicroSD Card for redundancy. Using this feature can add an extra layer of security for your stored images if you ever lose network connection. Because you can record on the camera itself, it is also possible to use (1) IP Camera as a stand alone system, without the need for an NVR.

Most Uniview IP Cameras with MicroSD Card slot now support up to 256GB. The 256GB Models have not been added to the list yet. However, the brands listed below should all be supported up to 256GB. Feel free to call us if you have any questions about SD Cards for Uniview Cameras.

How to Upgrade Uniview Devices

How to Upgrade Uniview NVR and IP Cameras

We are frequently asked “How do I upgrade my Uniview NVR” (or IP Camera). With Uniview Devices, the process is relatively simple and straight forward. If you are ready to upgrade one of your IP Cameras or a Uniview NVR, you can follow the steps below, or just give us a call! We love to talk to people about Uniview!

 

Notes on How to Upgrade Uniview Devices:

  • Make sure you use the correct upgrade file for you device. The upgrade file is a ZIP file and must include all the necessary files. Otherwise, unexpected results may occur.
  • Make sure power is not interrupted during upgrade. A power failure during system upgrade may cause startup failure. Use an Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) if necessary. The device will restart after the upgrade is completed.
  • When upgrade the IPC, the upgrade boot program function is disabled by default, and only the camera will be upgraded to the latest version. If enabled, both the camera and the boot program will be upgraded.

How to Upgrade Uniview IP Cameras

1. Click: Setup > System > Maintenance.

2. Under Software Upgrade, click Browse and select the correct upgrade file.

3. Click Upgrade and then confirm to start. The camera will restart automatically after the upgrade is completed. Some devices support boot program upgrade. To upgrade, select Upgrade Boot Program.

4. You may click Detect to check for new versions available to cloud upgrade.

 

How to Upgrade your Uniview NVR

Upgrade the NVR under Maintain > Upgrade locally (using an upgrade file saved in a USB storage device) or by cloud (through a cloud server).

To upgrade by cloud, ensure that the NVR is connected to a fully functional DNS server (configured under System > Network > Basic), and click Check to see whether a newer version is available. The time that a cloud upgrade takes is affected by network connection status.
