How to Quickly Install Uniview Fixed Lens Security Cameras (Bullet, Vandal Dome, and Turret)

Hey there, it’s Tyler from Nelly’s
Security, and in this video we’re going to install our three Uniview fixed lens
cameras. We have our 2MP bullet camera, our 4MP vandal dome,
and our 4K turret. If you want a closer look at these cameras,
be sure to check out our previous video, which I will link right up here. This is
our unboxing and our initial review. Now let’s go ahead and jump into
today’s video. Alright, we’re here at our back parking
lot at Nelly’s Security, and I am ready to install these cameras. Installation is
super easy. The first thing I’m going to do is take these mounting templates, and I’m
going to place them on the ceiling where I’m going to be installing each of these
cameras. Next, I’ll go ahead and drill my holes into the ceiling. And now we’re ready
for installation. Alright, first I’m going to install this bullet
camera. And again, these are very easy cameras to install. We can either run the
cables up through the ceiling like this, or we can run the cables out the side
of the camera, like this. So for this I’m going to go ahead and install it like
this running out the side of the camera. The first thing I’m going to do is loosen
up this knob, which gives us access to these three axes for angle adjustments
on this camera. And that just makes it a lot easier to install, because we can
move it around and we can get our screwdriver in there right where we need
it. Now, once we have it screwed into the ceiling, we can go ahead and adjust that
angle however we need to, and then tighten this knob back up. And now we’re
good to go. Alright now, next up we have our vandal
dome. And in order to install this, we just need to take off this glass vandal-proof
cover using the included hex wrench. Now once this cover is removed, all we
need is two screws to secure this camera in place. We will go ahead and angle that
lens and reattach this dome. And finally, we have our turret camera here.
In order to screw this into the ceiling, we just need to remove this plastic cover.
We will do so by turning this counter- clockwise. And then it just slides right
off the camera, like so. Once we have this camera installed in the
ceiling, we will loosen this tension screw just a bit. That will give us the ability
to angle this lens however we need to. Once we have it angled, we will tighten that
back up and replace the cover. Now our cameras are installed, they’re
almost good to go. But there is one more step that we have to do, at least for the
bullet and the vandal dome. Since we ran the cables out the sides of these cameras,
the Cat5 Ethernet connections are exposed to the elements. And even though these
cameras are IP67 weatherproof, we still need to make sure that we’re
weatherproofing these connections. For that, these cameras do come with a
weatherproofing grommet, so we’re gonna go ahead and install that right now. Now we have our cameras installed and
weatherproofed. Let’s head back inside and set these up on our network. Now this can be done in three different ways,
and we’re going to show you all three of those ways today. First, you can plug your camera
into the PoE switch in the back of an NVR. Second, you can plug your camera into a
separate PoE switch. Or third, you can plug your camera into a standard non-PoE
switch or router. First, let’s talk about the recorder. Now,
the fastest way to get up and running with your new camera is to plug it into the PoE
switch in the back of a Uniview NVR. Once you connect your camera to the NVR via
an Ethernet cable, you’ll get instant plug- and-play video to your monitor after the
camera boots up. No configuration, no logging in, just simple and instant plug-
and-play video. However, you don’t need an NVR in order to get these cameras set
up. You can set it up as a standalone camera by plugging it into a switch or your router.
First, let’s talk about PoE switches. Power over Ethernet is a very simple and
fast way to get your cameras set up on the network. With Power over Ethernet, your
one Ethernet cable can carry both power and data to and from your security camera.
Once you connect your camera to a PoE switch, simply hop onto the computer and
launch the EZTools program to find your camera’s IP address. Type that IP address
into your browser and log in with the default username, which is “admin”, and password,
which is “123456”. And then you’ll have access to your security cameras right from
your PC. If you don’t have an NVR or a PoE switch, you can plug your camera directly
into a standard non-PoE switch or Internet router. However, if you decide to take this
route, you will need to run a 12v DC power cable to your security camera. And from
there, we will log into this camera’s interface the same way that we did with the PoE switch.
However, if you don’t have a PoE switch, and especially if this is your only camera, I
highly recommend picking up one of these simple PoE switches from our website. They’re
only about ten bucks and they are totally worth it for only having to run one cable
to your camera. Now that our cameras are installed outside and set up on our network,
I’ll show you how you can access these cameras from your mobile device using
the Uniview application, EZView. Now, this app is available for both Android and iPhone.
If you want to check it out, I’ll leave you some links in the description below. Go ahead
and navigate to your settings menu inside your camera’s interface. From
here, navigate to the EZCloud page under your “Network” settings. Be sure to toggle
the EZCloud setting to “On”. Once you do that, take out your mobile phone, click “Add”,
“Scan”, and scan the QR code. Simply add a descriptive name for your camera. This
can be anything you want it to be. And then click, “Start Live View”. As you can
see, it’s super easy to get these Uniview fixed lens cameras installed, set up, and
ready to go. If you’re ready to check out these cameras for yourself, head over to Under “Video surveillance, click “Uniview.” Now it’s
time to see some of the incredible features that these cameras offer. In our
next video, we’re going to take you on a tour of the interface and get to know
these cameras inside and out. I look forward to seeing you in the next video. Hey guys, thanks so much for watching this
