Setup starts with the UniFi Protect app, for this article I am using it on iOS 12.4 on an iPhone XR.
Moving into setup we begin by searching devices on the network and rather quickly the Cloud Key Gen 2 Plus has been adopted.
We then move into adding cameras with the button below. To the right the software has detected these on the network and we can add them both at the same time.
Once both cameras have been added and you name them etc, they will show up on your dashboard when you open the app. From here both cameras are in automatic live view mode and by touching one you can scroll through camera history.
Options for the G4 Pro include naming at the top and connection. This is followed by stream resolution settings, optical zoom and focus. You can also adjust night vision and the picture along with adding any overlay information wanted. To the right we have picture settings and from here you can override and manually adjust brightness, contrast and orientation.
The G3 Flex offers the same settings and picture adjustments as the G4 Pro.
