Convenience of Cloud Based Systems Without a Subscription
UniFi Protect was designed from the ground up with a focus on user-experience. We wanted to build something that could operate at scale within a small hardware footprint, providing a low-cost initial investment.
No Subscription Fees
While a single monthly fee might be reasonable for the convenience of a single cloud camera, the proposition for a multi-camera network and multiple subscription fees quickly becomes unreasonable. With UniFi Protect, there are no subscription fees to worry about whatsoever.
Easy To Use Interface
With state-of-the-art video encoding and a simple, yet robust, user interface Unifi Protect allows you to easily scrub through video recordings to find the exact footage you’re looking for. And because the camera hardware doesn’t require a connection to the cloud, it can provide much faster in-network latency.
Scalable Solution To Meet Your Needs
The new cloud key can manage 20+ cameras while simultaneously providing UniFi network management. Installation is plug and play with Protect automatically detecting and adding new cameras as they come online. With access via mobile apps and a web UI that is suitable for monitoring hi-density camera installs.
Local Storage To Reduce Network Impact
Other cloud based solutions require each video feed to upload to the internet, eating up large chunks of your network bandwidth. With UniFi Protect, the camera stream terminates at the Cloud Key and thus saves full Internet upload bandwidth for the clients of the network.
Security Feed Stays On Your Secured Network
Cloud cameras forward video to 3rd party servers which means your video is really not private anymore and there is no guarantee that any recordings (including confidential events) will not be seen by others.
