Web: 3rd Party Cameras on Internal POE

UNV Web: 3rd Party Cameras on Internal POE

Please note: A Uniview NVR with Uniview cameras plugged into the internal POE of the recorder will essentially be plug and play. Third party cameras are not able to be set in this manner, so manual configurations must be made for the NVR to connect to the cameras.

To access the web client, please use a Windows based PC and use Internet Explorer as the web browser.

Access the recorder’s web interface by typing in the IP address on the address bar of Internet Explorer. The path should look like the following: “http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx” (Note: If the HTTP port has been changed from default, you will need to add the port number after the ip address by inserting a colon “:” in between the address and port number).

Install all requested web plugins that are prompted by Internet Explorer. Once installed, you may need to refresh, or restart the web browser. You may install the plugin by selecting “Run”. In some instances, you may need to close the web browser to complete the installation. After installation completes, please re-open Internet Explorer.

On the main camera page, you will need to manually select each channel individually, then select Modify. This will allow the channel highlighted to be switched from Plug and Play, to IP address. This will also allow you to switch the protocol from Uniview to ONVIF (general protocol for 3rd party cameras).

Please Note: The camera IP address must be changed to match the corresponding internal IP address per channel. This is generally done with an IPTool, but subject to be different depending on camera’s manufacturer. Please follow network settings of Uniview NVR as following:

IP address: 172.16.0.X
Subnet Mask:
Default Gateway:
Port: 80

DNS 1:
DNS 2:
(DNS is generally not necessary since cameras will be plugged directly to the NVR, but would advise to change if there is an option for it). Please make sure that port is set for 80, this is the default ONVIF protocol port.

Please make sure that the camera parameters are identical on the camera side and NVR side. This includes camera passwords and usernames. Please confirm that cameras and NVR are up to date on firmwares as well. Should there be any connection issues, please refer to technical support for the 3rd party cameras, as well as ENS Security’s technical support department for additional help.
