Review: Ubiquiti UniFi Dream Machine Pro (UDM-Pro)

Can the UDM pro work as a standalone PROTECT server?
Not using Unifi Controler, etc?

Yes, but it seems a bit overkill for that use case.

Use-case: AWS hosted Unifi controller for multi-Site, pfsence firewall. So Just want to use as an NVR and Utilize existing Unifi Protect Cameras for now… basically a $350 NVR…
Vs upgrading all cameras and NVR to someone new right now.

Utilizing Multiple Cloud keys right now. would like to consolidate.

No word on a Standalone NVR… Or do you know something I dont?:wink: should I wait?

If it is just a few cameras, the CloudKeyGen2 works well for protect. Neither device offers any redundancy for the drives.

i am planing to switsh from pfsence to a udm pro in about a mont or so and i need to find a solution for file cashing and windows update cashing eny sugestion i am wiling to trow a sff cheep core i3 or i5 8 gig 1 tb at it for a phisical bare metal instal ( ui is not mandatory but prefered )

I am planning to use the UDM-Pro to consolidate two other old servers running my router / filter, UniFi video and UniFi controller. I will eventually have around 20 cameras. My main concern is that the UDM-Pro only has 4GB of RAM. My router / filter has that and currently uses 3/4ths of it. Do you think the RAM is upgradeable in the UDM-Pro?

I am not aware of any way to upgrade the memory.

so was thinking of getting a udm pro for home use basic fire wall, 1 or 2 ap’s as well as 3-4 cameras, then i find videos on line that say you cant set this up with out an on line account ok to a point but now i cant log in to the thing locally if i lose internet access, plus data get sent to unifi and no one seams to know what is in that data and may lose features in the future do i have every thing correct or and i wrong on some or all points.

Yes it requires an online account now and UniFi has been less than clear about what changes they plan to make in the future.
