4. Step through the Wizard.

5. In the Network step select the SSID you want the UVC-Micro to associate to, then enter the Security Key (password). Click Continue. If your UniFi-Video installation is on the same network, it should automatically see your new UVC-Micro as a manageable device.

6. Click on the UVC-Micro within UniFi-Video and manage it. If prompted, the credentials at this point should still be ubnt/ubnt or root/ubnt for both the username and password.
