NuCCTV Smart NVR and Smart Home Hub – IT12

The NuCCTV is a next generation Networked Video Recorder (NVR) and smart home hub in one. It will record and notify you when objects like cars or persons are detected on your cameras and allow you to review the footage on your mobile phone or tablet.  


Being a Smart Home Hub it can also integrate with other devices like Intruder Alarms, Smart Plugs/lights and smart speakers like Alexa, Google or Sonos. Automatically switch on lights when you’re not at home or play loud music for example. Linking all these together is the ultimate home security solution!


As well as these killer features, it’s highly secure and privacy focused,  keeping all your footage stored on your device and only allowing your mobile devices to view the cameras. 

  • Accurate Object Detection: Highly customisable AI object detection with filters for size, zones and privacy masks to almost eliminate false positives. Detects persons, animals and cars with options to filter these out so you only get relevant alerts.
  • Large Secure Storage:  for all cameras with possibility to add more.
  • Reliability: Get alerts if any devices stop working.
  • Expandability: Add up to 14 compatible cameras.
  • Future Proof: Software is constantly being upgraded with constantly improving object detection.
  • Ownership: Cameras and NVR will work for the lifetime of the hardware. They don’t rely on manufacturer cloud servers to function. Everything will work if your internet goes down (apart from external access).
  • Privacy: All cameras are connected to a separate network without internet access thus making them completely secure from any vulnerabilities. Only the NuCCTV is allowed to securely connect to the internet via Nabu Casa servers. (Requires a Nabu Casa subscription + £6.50 p/m or £65 p/a).
  • Smart Home: Endless possibilities await with the included Home Assistant home automation software. Link devices from 1000’s of manufacturers together. Some examples:
    • Link your camera detection alerts to turning your smart lights on to simulate somebody awake/at home. 
    • Only receive alerts when your security is activated, arming it with easy buttons, phone GPS location or even power monitoring.
    • Get Alexa or Google to speak out what it’s seen on the cameras.
    • Show the clip of the alert on your TV or wall mounted tablet.
    • Switch on devices when you arrive home.
    • One app to control every smart home device: Integrate existing devices such as a Ring Doorbell, smart plugs, smart blinds into Home Assistant so you only need to go to one place for everything.
    • Get alerts and clips straight to your phone: See video clips direct from the notifications. See a snapshot too. Get alerts spoken out on your phone even if it’s silent (Android only).


IT12 specs are doubling down!

Speed & Power: 12th gen Intel Core i5 CPU with Iris XE graphics which is 4 x faster than the already fast N95. It also has a Dual-Edge Google Coral  TPU co-processor for AI object detection on over ten streams at once.

Speed & Reliability: Dual Raid M.2 NVME SSD drives provide a backup if one fails.

Speed & Security: Dual 2.5 Gigabit network ports give the ability to completely separate the Cameras and any other IOT devices from the internet and other potentially insecure smart home devices.

Storage & Expandability: 2TB of separate storage from the system to increase reliability. 4 USB 3.2 ports and 1 Thunderbolt 4.0 for ultimate storage expandability.

Versatility: Fully customisable server OS for using as a NAS or even a media streamer.

The newest feature of video surveillance is object recognition or detection and it’s revolutionising security surveillance around the world. Computers (and their programmers!) are now intelligent enough to recognise objects, text and even faces! Our latest smart NVR, NuCCTV, features built in object detection, event clip recording and mobile app playback/snapshot notifications.

Included in the purchase, is a pre-configuration of the system, plus two remote sessions to fine tune the systems’ settings. Get in touch if you’re not sure which cameras you require or have any specific requirements.

Say goodbye to false alarms

Fed up of your camera’s sending you alerts whenever the wind blows or the cat wondering past at all hours? If you’re used to this then you are far more likely to ignore any alerts, thus missing any important events. With object detection instead of just motion detection, “false positives” or false alerts are practically eliminated. At the same time, accuracy can be tuned to pick up every event, be it a person, car, animal or any of the other 77 pre-programmed models! It can even differentiate between a cat and a dog, if that’s something you need!

Never run out of storage again

The other major feature of Object Detection is making security surveillance much more efficient. Instead of needing to record video 24/7 and then having to spend hours reviewing that footage, now any events are recorded in small clips with an adjustable start before and after time so you can be sure not to miss the action. Clips can also automatically be removed after an adjustable amount of days so space is always available. Due to this, required storage disk sizes are greatly reduced, hard disk wear and usage is reduced, which means lower costs and making this an all round smart choice for surveillance security.

Privacy is back in your control

With this new technology comes inevitable privacy concerns with the sharing of personal data. Many of the products available today use cloud servers to perform the object detection. This involves sending images or even clips to servers outside of your network. Whilst this is usually secure, there have been occasions where even big names like Ring, have been caught out. It’s not only “unplanned” data breaches which let a lot of cloud services down, it’s intentional sharing of personal data by big corporations and even 3rd parties. It’s not only video and images that are being exposed as this article and many other news reports suggest.  Our system on the other hand, is totally secure by design. All data is analysed locally (on the same device) without ever leaving your network for object detection. All snapshots and recordings are stored on the device’s internal drive and never leave your network unless you enable external access.


If you do require external access, it can be set-up through Home Assistant¹ and a small monthly subscription fee which is supporting the open source project and being used, amongst other things, to keep the service secure. To enable your devices to securely access these clips on the internet, we can log in to our smart-hub via a secure link in the Home Assistant¹ Android/iOS app or a web browser. More info here.

Make video surveillance smart

With the help of Home Assistant, detecting objects, just got even smarter. Now we can not only get security events, we can get smart devices to act on them. Your NuCCTV is not only a smart NVR, it’s a smart home hub! Find out more about Home Assistant¹ here.


Now event detection is reliable and a multitude of object detection’s are possible, things can really get interesting when it comes to automating actions from events. Here’s some examples but your imagination really is the limit with home automation!

  • Want to know when the cat is at the door? We can get alerts on our phones or through our smart speakers for that.
  • Who needs a doorbell when you can tell when someone is approaching your door!
  • Small children/animals prone to escaping? Get alerts when they enter specific zones on a camera.
  • Fed up of missing out on that first glass of wine after a days work? Wine glasses can be tracked so an alert can be sent or even an announcement on your smart speaker. Or maybe you just want to dim the lights, play some music to set the scene when the wine is opened!

* The amount of camera sources depends on the resolution of the detect streams used. Please enquire if you´re not using our cameras and want more than 5 cameras.

**Storage use depends on the amount of events triggered per day, clip length and the resolution of the camera streams.
