Overview

Keeping your UNV NVR and cameras up to date is a great way to ensure that your unit runs smoothly and efficiently. This tutorial will guide you through the steps needed to cloud upgrade your UNV NVR and cameras.

Prerequisites

This tutorial assumes you have already initialized your NVR and added it to your EZCloud account. If you have not done so already, please CLICK HERE to visit our tutorial section on how to do so.

Step 1

Navigate to your NVR on your web page. You can do this by accessing it via the EZCloud or by the local . If you are unsure how to do this, CLICK HERE for a tutorial on how to do so. Please keep in mind that if you access your NVR via the local IP address, it will ask you to log in. This log in is the same username and password you created for your NVR directly.

As you can see in the figure below, this particular NVR was accessed via the EZCloud, meaning no password was needed to log into the unit.

Once you have reached the Live View screen, click on the word “Setup” at the top of the screen.

Step 2

Once you're in the setup menu, you will see several options on the left side of your screen. Please click on the “Maintenance” menu to proceed.

Once you have clicked on the Maintenance menu, you will see a small submenu appear. Click on the “Maintenance” submenu to proceed.

Once you have entered the Maintenance submenu, look at the top of the menu. You will see four tabs available, the last one being “Cloud Upgrade”. Click there to proceed.

PLEASE NOTE: Some units with older firmware will not have the “Cloud Upgrade” tab. However, you can still cloud upgrade your firmware. Instead of looking for the tab at the top, look in the maintenance submenu and find a button that says “Check” or “By Cloud”, depending on what firmware you have. This will allow you to upgrade your NVR.

Step 3 (Updating your )

Once in the Cloud Upgrade tab, you will see two options.

Device Type: This is where you will pick which piece of you want to upgrade. By default, this is set to NVR, meaning you will be upgrading the firmware on your NVR. For the IP screen, skip to Step 5.

Cloud Upgrade: This is where you will check for Updates. To do so, click the “Check for Update” button.

Step 4

If there is a firmware upgrade available for your NVR, you will be prompted with the screen below. To upgrade your NVR's firmware to the latest version, click “Upgrade”.

Step 5 (Updating your Firmware)

To upgrade your IP Cameras, first select “IPC” for the “Device Type” Row.

Once you have selected “IPC”, click “Check for Update” in the Cloud Upgrade Row.

If your cameras have an upgrade available to them, you will see this reflected in the “Firmware Version/Latest Version” box. As you can see in the figure below, out of the three available cameras, only one has an upgrade, while the others are up to date.

On the left-hand side of your screen, make sure to select all the checkboxes for your cameras. This will ensure that any cameras that need an upgrade will be queued for one.

There are two options for finalizing the upgrade. You may click “Batch Upgrade” in the Cloud Upgrade Row, or you may click the Cloud Upgrade icon in the “Cloud Upgrade” column on the bottom right of the below figure. Typically, if you have multiple cameras with available upgrades, it's easier to click “Batch Upgrade”.

Step 6

Once you are sure that all available cameras are selected for an upgrade and have clicked the upgrade button, you will see a message pop up on your screen. This message is to confirm that you wish to upgrade your IP Cameras. Click “Okay” to proceed.

PLEASE NOTE: After beginning the upgrade for your cameras, they will need time to update and restart. We recommend leaving the system alone for fifteen minutes to allow for all upgrades to take place and for the devices to restart.
