Uniview Cameras & NVR Default Username and Password

If you’re logging into a Uniview NVR or camera for the first time, you’ll need to enter the default username and password. The login credentials for new Uniview devices are as follows:

  • Username – admin
  • Password – 123456

After logging into the device, you will be asked to enter a new password. This used to be optional but became a requirement on newer firmware versions sometime in 2021.

Uniview Password Requirements

You must create a new password for your NVR or camera after logging into it for the first time. Not only do you need to come up with a password, but it must follow these specific requirements:

  • 9 to 32 characters
  • At least one number, letter, and special character such as ! or $

You can also add your email address to the device. If you forget your password in the future, you can send a reset code to your email address so you can easily reset the password.

After logging into a Uniview device for the first time, you will be asked to change the password.

How to Reset the Password a Uniview Camera or NVR

There are three ways to reset the password on your Uniview device – but only two of the methods work on the NVR.

  1. Push the reset button on your camera for 15 seconds, within 10 minutes of powering on the device (only supported models)
  2. Use the EZView or UNV-Link app to send a reset code to your email address
  3. Contact your local Uniview Distributor for technical support (they can send a reset code)
