UniFi Video - How many hours of video can the NVR appliance record?


The amount of recording time the Ubiquiti NVR can store will always depend on camera bitrate: 1.35GB per hour at the default 3000Kbps bitrate setting. For example, it could store up to 1200 hours at 480p or up to 400 hours at 720p (HD resolution) using the 500GB internal HDD.

If more space is needed, add an external disk to the NVR appliance.
