UniFi Access - Pair UniFi Protect Cameras and Chimes with Your Doors

By pairing UniFi Protect cameras with your doors:

  • The door’s G2 Pro/UA Pro and the paired cameras will automatically record a video when someone unlocks the door. Note that the Door Unlock Recordings option must be enabled first.
  • Admins can monitor doors remotely in real-time.
  • Admins can watch a playback of each access event in the system logs.

By pairing UniFi chimes with your doors, the paired chimes will ring when someone rings the doorbell.


  • Currently, ringing the doorbell from G4 or G4 Pro Doorbell will not send notifications to the Access application.
  • If you want a third-party chime to ring when someone calls from your UA G2 Pro or UA Pro or presses the doorbell push button, follow the steps here to wire the chime to your UA Hub.


  • UniFi Access application: v1.20.13 or later.
  • UniFi Protect application: v2.9.0 or later.
  • UniFi OS: v3.1.13 or later.
