About Uniview

Uniview specializes in surveillance equipment, including IP security cameras, network video recorders (NVR), access control, and more.

Uniview is the fourth largest video surveillance manufacturer in the global market and aims to build a safer world by providing professional, reliable, and cutting-edge products.

An eco-friendly company, Uniview has strong awareness of protecting the environment. Founded in 2005, Uniview insists on being environmentally friendly during manufacturing and production.

Top in their class, Uniview was one of the first security companies to recognize and adopt ONVIF Standards. ONVIF’s mission is to provide and promote standardized interfaces for effective interoperability of IP-based physical security products. According to ONVIF, the benefits of open standards include:

Interoperability – meaning products from various manufacturers can be used in the same systems and communicate with the “same language.”

Flexibility – ensures end-users and integrators are not locked into proprietary solutions based on technology selections of individual manufacturers

Future-proof – standards ensure that no matter what happens to individual manufacturers, there will still be interoperable products on the market

Quality – when a product conforms to ONVIF standards, the market knows what to expect from the product.
