In this guide, we will show you how to search for and download the EZView app on your Android device. We will also show you how to configure the EZView app to connect to your NVR using a remote IP address.
Step 1: Find and launch the Play Store app on your Android Device.
Step 2: From the search bar enter in the text, “Uniview”.
Step 3: You should now find a listing for EZView, which is the app designed for UniView NVRs and IP cameras.
Step 4: Download and install the app.
Step 5: You should now see a progress bar indicating that the app is downloading and installing.
Step 6: Once installation is complete, you should now see the option to open the EZView app, which can be accessed by tapping on the Open button.
Step 7: Since we are not using the P2P function in this guide, tap on the Skip button so that we can add the NVR using an IP address.
Step 8: From the top left corner, tap on the Settings/Menu icon.
Step 9: Next, tap on Devices.
Step 10: In the Devices section, tap on the + (Add Icon) from the top right of the screen.
Step 11: Select Manual Add.
Step 12: Select the IP/Domain option
Step 13. Now we will need to fill out the following fields to be able to connect to the NVR.
Name: Enter in anything that will help you remember that you are connecting to this particular system.
Address: Enter the IP address of the NVR system (either local IP address or WAN IP address).
Port: Enter the HTTP Port of the NVR. (Default = 80)
Username: Enter the NVR user name (Default = admin)
Password: Enter password on the NVR (Default = 123456)
After you have entered in the following information and checked for any errors, tap on Start Live View. If you have entered any information incorrectly, the app may not save the entry and you will have to enter in all information again.
Step 14: If all information was entered correctly, all cameras attached to the NVR should now display on your screen. Using the 4, 9 or 16 grid display buttons on the row below the live videos, you can choose between different screen layouts.
Step 15. If you want to get a more detailed view on any camera, you can double-tap within the frame of that certain camera view and it should bring the camera into a full viewmode, as seen in the picture to the left.
Step 16. When you have a camera selected in the full viewmode, you can zoom into areas of interest digitally by placing two fingers on the screen (usually thumb and index finger), and moving them slowly apart from each other. To return to a normal view mode, you can either move the fingers closer together or double-tap on the screen.
Step 17. To return to the split-view with more cameras showing, double tap again on the screen or click on one of the view buttons (4,9 or 16 view) on the first row of icons below the video streams.
