Uniview Account Modification Guide

To modify or add a new user account on your Uniview NVR, go to Main Menu->System->User. Within the
user section you will see two available accounts by default. These include: admin and default.
 
Admin – The admin account will be your primary account in configuring your NVR. This account is the ONLY
account able to modify or add new user accounts.

 
Default – The default account is singularly used for modifying which cameras you’d like to display when no accounts are logged in.
 
Modifying an account:
 
To modify an account firstly sign into your admin account. Once signed in go to Main Menu->System->User. Once within the user section you will see all of the available accounts. To modify an account simply double-
click on the accounts name or select the edit icon next to it.
