New LIILN Surveillance System installed at The Academy, Selsey

Selsey Academy Case Study A4 I3Pupils at a burnt out school have returned to temporary classrooms after the school suffered extensive damage with much of its contents destroyed in a blaze.

The Academy, Selsey formerly known as the Manhood Community College, has 453 pupils aged 11-16. More than 75 firefighters tackled the fire on the 21st August, started by accidental ignition. The fire was brought under control after eight hours but not before most of the secondary school had been destroyed, including the existing CCTV system.

Selsey Academy Case Study A4 I4Requiring a brand new installation, the Academy’s specifications were extremely specific. The system had to be simple to use and provide quality images over a large site where identification would be possible. As the school was successfully using a LILIN security system for a number of years before the fire, it had every confidence in continuing to use LILIN, with work being completed by Calibre Comms of East Sussex.

Calibre Comms selected LILIN 1080P HD IP iMEGAPRO network cameras which were installed in strategic locations to maximise the efficiency of the system and monitor vital areas throughout the four locations. A key element was the involvement of the staff whose knowledge proved invaluable, for example, they helped with the correct positioning of cameras and provided vital information on potential trouble spots.

Also selected was a LILIN 36 channel Navigator server which was installed to provide a recording and monitoring solution. This enabled staff to view local images from the cameras located within that area of the Academy.

Selsey Academy Case Study A4 I1Security is a high priority for The Academy, Selsey. The school may be using surveillance as a positive measure to help prevent vandalism but the true importance lies with the safety of the students and staff whilst they are on the school’s premises. The management team at The Academy, Selsey are able to monitor any location and easily share incidents captured on video. This provides peace of mind for students, parents and staff alike. Most importantly, the academy now benefits from HD quality images.

LILIN’s IP surveillance system allows full integration, giving The Academy, Selsey the opportunity to develop the system in line with the ongoing growth of the school. The new IP system provides the perfect solution – protecting the property and students, providing access to the benefits of advanced network video technology with the ability to add to the system at a later date.

Selsey Academy Case Study A4 I2Calibre Comms, the installer on this project, has been in the industry for over 10 years helping businesses get the full potential from both their CCTV and telecoms systems. An independent company based in the South East of England with access to the latest technologies, they provide bespoke, cost effective solutions. They pride themselves on ensuring new systems are flexible enough to grow and adapt with businesses, imperative to the requirements of The Academy, Selsey.

Mick Watts, Managing Director said, “As an existing supplier, we were very sorry to hear about the devastating fire at The Academy, but delighted that we were able to respond to the School’s tight deadlines to get the site secure and ready for the new academic year. The supply and installation of LILIN IP CCTV went to plan and provides a network of cameras so the Academy can be monitored out of school hours, and even remotely away from the school site.”

New LIILN Digital Recorder installed in Tom Hartley’s Control 4 System

Tom Hartley Jnr 1When you next need to track down a classic multi-million pound Ferrari, Tom Hartley Jnr is the guy to call.

Tom, a world-renowned specialist car dealer, has used LILIN equipment for a decade. Having recently completely refurbished his home, he decided to install a home automation system from Control4, with work being completed by Customer Integrator Living Design of Staffordshire.

The majority of the existing surveillance system was retained, but a new LILIN digital recorder was installed so that it could all be seamlessly controlled through the Control4 interfaces, and deliver both live multi-screen images and full playback control from the televisions and controllers in the home. LILIN has extensive IP drivers for all the main Home Automation platforms and goes to great lengths to make sure cameras and both analogue and digital recorders can integrate perfectly.

Security is a high priority for Tom. He may have some very valuable vehicles on the property, but the true importance lies with the safety of his family whilst he is travelling away from home, visiting the worldwide auctions in search of an elusive car.

Living Design, the integrator on this project, have been in the industry for over 35 years providing everything from simple lighting control, home automation systems and dedicated cinema rooms. They pride themselves on the fact that 95% of their business is generated by word of mouth. Damon the main integrator said “its fantastic to hear our business is coming from clients who are overwhelmed by the support and services we offer”.Tom Hartley Jnr 2

Jason Hill, Group Vice President at LILIN added, “Tom doesn’t settle for second best. He works in an environment where one small wrong detail can wipe thousands off the value of a vehicle. He took that same exacting standard to this project and wanted everything to work beautifully. I’m very pleased our products were able to match his expectations, and also that the existing equipment is performing so well years later. It’s a shame cameras don’t increase in value like classic cars!”

Tom said “LILIN products have proven to be reliable and adaptable. When I chose to go down the route of home automation my existing system was able to be cost-effectively upgraded so that it integrates perfectly. Like my clients – I’m very demanding, everything has to be just right and work as advertised. Integrating so much technology yet delivering simple control is a challenge, even with today’s high tech, but it is one that Living Design and LILIN have delivered on.”



LILIN IP installed at Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons


Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons, Raymond Blanc’s luxury restaurant and hotel in Great Milton, Oxfordshire is one of the UK’s most prestigious establishments. Home to The Raymond Blanc Cookery School, it has held two Michelin stars for 29 years, has trained numerous Michelin starred chefs, won many awards and become a destination of choice.
It was unsurprising that when Le Manoir’s management team updated their CCTV system specifications were extremely stringent. The system had to be simple to use and offer a discreet HD IP solution that blended into the listed buildings. LILIN’s IP Video products were the perfect solution.

Transition from analogue to IP

G4 Communications, the trusted IPCCTV integrator, were assigned the task of replacing the outdated infrastructure and implementing a new system to provide coverage of Le Manoir’s grounds. The existing system at the restaurant and hotel had not yet seen the benefits of HD quality images and was proving costly to manage. After careful consideration of Le Manoir’s requirements, G4 Communications had no hesitation in putting forward LILIN as the provider.
With over 32 years CCTV experience and one of the leaders within the IP Video market, G4 Communications were sure that LILIN were the right choice for the Le Manoir project. LILIN’s understanding of new products, innovations and technologies has seen them embrace HD IP; in fact they have trained over 500 installers to date in the transition from analogue to IP Video.

The LILIN solution was designed around Le Manoir’s need for flexibility, simplicity and their commitment to environmentally-friendly products and energy-saving technology. G4 Communications and LILIN recognised these stringent demands necessitated the installation of a sophisticated, effective, surveillance solution with minimal impact on visitors.

G4 Communications selected 25 x LILIN 720P IP iMEGAPRO network cameras which were installed in strategic locations to maximise the efficiency of the system and monitor vital areas throughout the property.
A key element was the involvement of the staff whose knowledge proved invaluable, for example, they helped with the correct positioning of cameras and provided vital information on potential trouble spots. Also installed was a management PC, 5 x Ethernet switches along with LILIN CMX software used to monitor and control the cameras.

Control of the system

By connecting the cameras into the central monitoring solution within the maintenance room at Le Manoir, Csaba Balogh, the Back of House Manager, is able to maintain strict control over the movement of persons entering the grounds of the hotel and restaurant, monitor any location from multiple review points on the network and easily share incidents captured on video. This provides peace of mind for guests and staff alike.

With the new LILIN network cameras and central video management system, Le Manoir is able to expand coverage beyond what its older analogue system could provide. The installation went well and was completed without any disruption to Le Manoir or its guests. Dave Allen, Managing Director at G4 Communications commented “The LILIN IP CCTV system gives Le Manoir the quality of service and flexibility, which it requires for external coverage”.
Investing in a ‘future proof’ technology was essential to Le Manoir. LILIN’s IP video systems allow full integration, giving Le Manoir the opportunity to add to the system if desired. This could mean, for example, integration with other intruder or fire alarm systems that are directly linked to the security system and allow for an immediate, integrated response.

Future upgrades

Le Manoir wanted to safeguard their investment with their chosen system ultimately providing the best of both worlds – protecting their property, providing access to the benefits of advanced network video technology and the ability to add to the system at a later date. Already the management team at Le Manoir are looking to upgrade all the internal CCTV cameras across the site. Gurval Durand, Deputy General Manager at Le Manoir said “We are pleased with the new CCTV system and the support G4 has provided”.

LILIN Australia Partners with Eveready Alarms & Security Services

In NSW Australia, LILIN Australia has been hard at work with Eveready Alarms to incorporate the 16-channel NVR Touch (NVR116) into some of their most recent jobs.


Eveready Alarms are responsible for the majority of network surveillance installs for a well known global fast food chain. Eveready Alarms have a lot of technical expertise and experience in the commercial surveillance sector.

Mark Marzol, the General Manager & owner of Eveready Alarms & Security Services, gave LILIN a chance to trial one store at Lisarow in NSW with 2 NVR116s and 24 cameras, including the IPD2220, IPR320, and the IPR434. This installation proved very successful for both Eveready Alarms and LILIN Australia. LILIN has been told that their support is excellent and that Eveready is very happy with the speed in which issues were addressed.

Since the first job, LILIN Australia has provided services to two more stores undergoing upgrades, in M4 West and Lakemba. The owner of the first store at Lisarow has even requested the same LILIN product be used in several other stores of his!
Eveready Alarms has elected LILIN as the go-to for four more projects. Mark Marzol is very impressed with LILIN Australia. Prior to trying our products his company has used many surveillance products on the market such as Pacom and Mobotics to name a few.

Graham Madden, State Manager at LILIN Australia stated, “The alliance between LILIN Australia and Eveready Alarms will prove to be an important step in proving the reliability and outstanding performance of the iMEGAPRO series of IP cameras in the Australian market.” LILIN is proud to have worked with Eveready Alarms & Security Services and looks forward to developing our relationship further for many opportunities to come in the future.

Catching Thieves in the Act

Shopping Centre, Perth

LILIN Australia recently supplied an IP solution for a shopping centre in Perth, Australia. The system involved the installation of thirty 2 and 3 Megapixel iMEGAPRO cameras employed to monitor the inside and outside of shopping and car park areas. This installation uses LILIN’s license-free CMX software and high-end server to control the video storage and system.

The customer was so impressed by the quality that even before the final system was completed they were contemplating adding additional cameras and servers! What further impressed the customer was that during the installation, a purse-snatching incident was captured by LILIN cameras. The reaction of the local police, when they saw the video footage and the color print-out of the culprit was nothing short of, “WOW!”

All featured images in this article were captured by LILIN’s iMEGAPRO IPD2220ES4.3 2MP HD IP Mini-Dome Camera.

South Korean Monorail Project

Daegu, South Korea

LILIN has been selected as the security camera manufacturer of choice for the third rail transport line being built in Daegu, South Korea.  This new bi-directional Hitachi monorail will provide both safety and surveillance with the installation of 224 LILIN IPD6222ES4.3 IP Vandal Mini Dome Cameras. The fleet includes 28 trains, and each will feature 8 of the EN50155-compliant Mini Domes. LILIN is elated to have the opportunity to step into the railway market by taking part in such a high profile project.

Construction of the Daegu monorail began in July of 2009, and is expected to be completed in October of 2014. When finished, the rail line will extend from Dongho-dong in Northern Daegu, all the way to the southern suburb of Beommul-dong.  The monorail form was chosen due to its quicker construction time and lower cost, and will be the first urban transit monorail system in Korea.

JinHan Teo, of LILIN Pacific, has been heavily involved with this bid.  Pleased with the selection of LILIN as the train’s surveillance system provider, he remarked, “This to me is a significant achievement, as it is a great reference for us in the railway market, a very big market for cameras…”

LILIN hopes to continue its involvement in the railway industry, and expects the Daegu monorail to be a prime example of LILIN quality in a mobile setting.

Salvation Army Project

Salvation Army Project

LILIN USA partnered with Controlled Key Solutions to provide a great HD video case study at the Salvation Army Headquarters building in Downtown Long Beach. The historical building is in a prime location overlooking several key landmarks in the city.

LILIN strategically positioned a 3MP 60m IPR7334SX5 IR camera overlooking the Long Beach harbor where the Queen Mary is docked, providing a live cam feed local news stations can pipe into and display for their weather segments and live area views.

The company also installed a new 1.3MP IPS6224 PTZ next to the 3MP camera to provide a view of the harbor and a tour sequence of several local attractions including the Long Beach Grand Prix track, the Queen Mary, Terminal Island, the Vincent Thomas Bridge, and on clear days, even Catalina Island!

Robert Melendez, the LILIN USA Regional Sales Manager in charge of the project, is pleased with how the cameras are performing and looks forward to other demo projects with partners like Controlled Key. “The view from the cameras is remarkably clear. We are truly honored to provide a solution for a reputable organization such as the Salvation Army. We are receiving nothing but positive feedback from this joint venture, and know that this is not the end to the relationship,” Robert said.

Paws Pet Resort Project

Paws Pet Resort

LILIN USA provides HD IP surveillance application for Paws Pet Resort in Lake Forest, California. With an embedded video feed on their website called the Live Doggie Cam, PawsPR was unhappy with the quality of their existing CCTV system. Looking to improve the experience of their guests’ owners, the hotel decided to replace their existing application with one that would guarantee clear footage of their four-legged friends.

Helping in the development of this project, Regional Sales Manager Robert Melendez recommended the resort install LILIN’s 9-channel NVR Touch, the NVR109, along with 4 2MP IPD2122ES HD Dome IP Cameras. All LILIN iMEGAPRO cameras come embedded with the Java-written LILINApplet, which automatically downloads itself to the user’s PC. Therefore, no web master needs to host LILINApplet in order to use it.

Robert stated, “Paws Pet Resort was unhappy with their previous cameras. Customers were having trouble logging onto the Doggie Cam without downloading an app. With LILIN cameras installed in their facility, customers can view their pets without downloading an app. This way they can view their pets when they want to and make sure they are being taken care of.”

With two of the camera feeds live on the website, the Paws Pet Resort will have constant vibrant footage during business hours, allowing all “parents” to check up on their pets while away.
