LILIN has been in the CCTV business for 35 years, and have come a long way in the custom integration business in the last few years. LILIN now offers Crestron drivers for its cameras and NVRs. One of the most recent drivers includes LILIN’s new 360-degree camera. This integration doesn’t require laborious “drivers” to make the product work with third-party control systems. That’s because all of the data-crunching for the camera—including complicated algorithms for video analytics and de-warping—occurs in the camera itself, meaning the technology is attached to any LILIN “driver” written for third-party controllers.

Janus drivers provide full, two-way integration with Crestron for all compatible network cameras, as well as one-way control of DVR/NVRs.  Offering a full complement of pan, tilt and zoom controls, as well as monitoring of MJPEG streams on the Crestron panel, this driver provides all the CCTV control functionality the client will need.  For the security- conscious, motion and tamper variables can be programmed to alert the user, initiate recording, and/or trigger any appropriate action within the Crestron system.  The ability to save and recall preset camera positions at high-speed, and with accuracy is an added bonus.  The DVR/NVR driver provides a complete set of one-way commands, providing the user with the ability to easily navigate through the on-screen menus and review recorded camera footage.

So how does it work? The Crestron processor communicates directly with cameras and NVR/DVRs connected to the network. The following features are supported:

  • Full PTZ control of network cameras
  • Save and recall preset camera positions
  • Alarm/motion monitoring
  • One-way IP control of NVR/DVR

The driver comes packaged with a demonstration panel design, enabling easy integration and testing with your existing system. Crestron has now added and certified the drivers on its website.

LILIN loves the Custom Install Channel. Well established in the security industry, LILIN kind of fell into the integration business by chance, Hill says. “I guess we’re really good at this, but we didn’t really know it.” While other technology companies used to dominate the CCTV category among home systems integrators, their disappearance opened the doors wide for a good surveillance company that would pay attention to the channel. “We’re the only manufacturer really putting an effort into this sector,” Hill says. “We love it.”
