Unifi Video Mongodb remove

Occasionally you hit an issue with a unifi camera and it won’t connect or remove from the controller. The easiest / only way to fix this is to manually remove it from the database.

SSH into the NVR and find all the cameras:

mongo localhost:7441/av{}, {_id: 0, name: 1, uuid: 2})

Look for the camera in question, we will want the UUID

"Driveway", "uuid" : "1fbfb420-a091-3c8f-b184-e43ec862b14a"

Then remove it, exit the tool, and restart UFV{uuid:"1fbfb420-a091-3c8f-b184-e43ec862b14a"})
service unifi-video stop; service unifi-video start
