Was surprised by the amount of posts in the Unifi U6 Lite/LR thread,.....seems like people really have taken to Ubiquiti's product offerings and their ecosystem

Just noticed this product in stock on their Canadian store.......definitely not on sale but it's difficult to find stuff in stock in the Unifi Canada store these days.

The Unifi protect stuff is cool, but a note that unlike other smart home security cameras, these don't cloud record so you'll also need an NVR. Local storage might be a benefit over cloud recording, but the point is that this isn't a standalone product.

so the bare minimum to be outdoors and not fill up with water. But humidity will be a problem.

LOL wait a 5 megapixel sensor and a 1920p30 video output? I knew their cameras were trash for the price but if that's accurate, that's worse than I ever could have imagined

Honestly I don't know how people can justify Ubiquiti Cameras.... Ubiquiti's access points and networking stuff isn't bad, but the rest of the roadmap is just a mess. Random EOL's with very short notices, With Ubiquiti, you never know if one day they're going to just suddenly end protect and introduce a new product line, they're worse than google.

The build quality is great. Functionality is solid
The app is very intuitive and user friendly. The protect product line is pretty straight forward (not the case for all ubiquiti stuff though) and all the different cameras seamlessly work with eachother. The cloud key/NVR integration can be a great value. If you already have a ubiquiti eco system adding protect is a no brainer to me.

Ubiquiti isn't perfect but it's rather disingenuous to imply that unifi protect isn't worth considering. They're a terrific option and as a whole they blow most other mainstream camera systems out of the water.

I agree with you on some points. There's not many good options out there... but one thing of Ubiquiti is there's always bugs, security flaws and such that Ubiquiti seems to just brush them under the carpet. You may be lucky and never experience it, but if you do, it's awful. The amount of people who got burned from the sudden deprecation of Unifi-Video (which was great, as you could locally run it on your own machines) was enough to write off any unifi camera system. Do I like the UI? Yes. Do I like how it's all under 1 pane of glass? Absolutely.

But the quality, headaches and everything that goes with the security flaws and luck of the draw hardware is a tough sell, especially at the premium prices they command. I've had a edgerouter 4 die on me, ubiquiti said tough luck. I have a UAP-AC-LR that has decided to randomly lose it's 5GHz band, Ubiquiti said tough luck. All the security flaws they've tried to hide?

I own their products. I like some of them. I can't recommend their protect though. Not with all these issues that the company has.
