Uniview OEM DirectoryBy IPVM Team, Published Jul 02, 2021, 08:31am EDT
This directory lists 30+ companies that OEM products from Uniview, with a graphic and links to company websites below.
It does not cover all Uniview OEMs as many hide the association and we have only listed ones we have verified by examining shipping records, product documentation or testing products.
If you have feedback on this list or others to add, email us at email@example.com or leave a comment below.
- 2M Technology
- CCTV Security Pros
- CP Plus
- Fermax Australia
- Invid Tech
- Nelly's Security (both unbranded/private labeled sales and branded)
- Norden / Eyenor
- Panasonic / Advidia
- Planet Security
- Security Camera Warehouse
- Uniview Tec
Note: There are certainly more Uniview OEMs than this list as our information sources are primarily North American based. Even within North America, surely there are some others not yet listed. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment with more suggestions.
Added For 2021
We have added the following OEMs for 2021:
- Alibi (Vigilant Series)
- Nelly's Security
- Panasonic / Advidia
- Planet Security USA
Observint Brands: Alibi/Supercircuits
Observint Technologies OEMs Uniview under both the Alibi brand (a dealer-only line) and online reseller Supercircuits. Alibi was previously simply Supercircuits' house brand, but was later spun off as a dealer program.
Nelly's Unbranded And Branded Sales
In an unusual move, Nelly's Security sells both branded Uniview cameras, as well as unbranded models, which may be private-labeled for their customers. The two are sold side by side on their product listing, with customers able to switch to either option:
Removed / Former OEMs
We removed several suppliers from this list as of 2021, as a number have stopped selling cameras, changed OEMs, or gone out of business.
For those who have stopped OEMing Uniview, no other manufacturer stands out as the most common OEM, with various companies moving to Dahua, Uniview, TVT or Raysharp.
- Dax Networks: Out of business
- Grupo PV / Voxel: Has moved into UNV branded sales
- People Fu: Now only OEMs Dahua
- Q-See: Went out of business in early 2021
- Western Digital: Discontinued WD ReadyView line
Many Uniview models are NDAA banned due to the use of HiSilicon SoC (system on chip), though some newer offerings do not use Huawei chips are therefore not banned. Uniview maintains a list of NDAA compliant devices on their website.
We checked cameras we had on hand against Uniview's NDAA listing and confirmed banned devices were using HiSilicon, whereas NDAA compliant cameras use SigmaStar.
How To Tell
A few techniques can help verify if your provider is using Uniview OEM equipment.
Shipping records often show that a company OEMs from Uniview. For example here is a series of shipments from Uniview to Digital Peripheral Solutions (Q-See), Revo, and Security System Depot.
However, note that many OEMs do not get shipments directly from Uniview in China or hide their shipping records so all will not show.
MAC OUI Lookup
The MAC address OUI of an IP camera or recorder often will report as Uniview even though it is sold as another brand. Here is a such an example:
Here is a MAC OUI lookup tool so you can check your own devices.
However, more sophisticated OEMs will have their own MAC address OUI assigned to mask the origin, so this is not universal.
Web Interface Similarities
Typically, Uniview OEMs use the same fundamental web interface as Uniview with mostly cosmetic changes (logo, colors, button placement, etc.). The image below demonstrates this with a comparison of a Uniview OEM Geovision camera with Uniview's own, with mainly cosmetic changes and some different labels:
Discovery Tool Connectivity
Most Uniview OEMs will be discovered by Uniview's EZTools discovery tool just like any other Uniview camera or NVR. For example, here is a Geovision OEM turret camera discovered by EZTools:
