This Spy Monkey guide will focus on the EZCloud service. Thank you for choosing Spy Monkey for your Uniview Security System needs. Please contact us if you have any questions or feedback. No part of this manual may be copied, reproduced, translated, or distributed in any form or by any means without the prior consent in writing from Spy Monkey. The information presented in this guide from the latest publicly available information gathered in September 2020. The configurations and interface may vary as the firmware is further developed but the operational concepts should remain similar and relevant.
Uniview's EZCloud is a network platform that is provided for all Uniview service users which enables them to watch videos remotely. EZCloud does not generate any content by itself but it enables registered Users to watch live videos or recordings of locations installed with surveillance devices connected to EZCloud or to log in to these surveillance devices directly. EZCloud allows Users to add or delete the connected surveillance devices as needed. EZCloud service features include:
- Temporary Device Sharing.
- Organization Management.
- Password Retrieval.
- Remote Access.
- EZView Integration.
- EZStation Integration.
To fully utilize the EZCloud features, it is ideal that one should first create an EZCloud account. To register, go to https://en.ezcloud.uniview.com/Register.aspx
Once an account has been created and verified, you will now be able to add and manage devices and organizations.
Before any device can be managed to EZCloud, it should first be added. We do this by first enabling the EZCloud feature on our security system. In this guide, we will be configuring this feature by remotely accessing our Network Video Recorder on a computer browser. If you are would like to learn more about accessing your NVR remotely, please see this guide: Setting up using Remote Browser Interface
