With security threats on the rise, LILIN Americas is answering the call by introducing an advanced yet easy-to-install Access Control System for monitoring entry to a building, resulting in a safer environment for personnel and assets. When integrated with other platforms such as IP cameras, fire alarms, and sensors, the system provides a layered security approach that significantly enhances peace-of-mind and acts as a deterrent for theft and vandalism. "The LILIN Access Control System is a single, streamlined and secure solution that can be controlled remotely and customised to individual requirements, from the simple to the most challenging," said Joe Cook, Vice President and General Manager of LILIN Americas. It tracks when employees enter and exit a building, creating an audit trail of data that can be analysed for actionable insights" "Besides keeping intruders out, it tracks when employees enter and exit a building, creating an audit trail of data that can be analysed for actionable insights. It also empowers administrators to restrict the locations each employee can enter, so they can set levels of security that balance safety and convenience." Reduces installation time Designed to work seamlessly together, the building blocks of the LILIN Access Control System are: TCP/IP Single Door RFID Card Reader and PIN Controller (AR2015) PoE Relay Box (ARR2010E) TCP/IP Multi- and Single-door Control Panels (AC1082, ACW10120) AC/DC Power Supply (PMH-PSU330) LILIN Access Control Software Various combinations of the hardware platform are installed depending on the three available configurations – Standalone mode, Standalone with PoE mode, or Mixed mode. By using only what hardware they need, LILIN customers can significantly reduce installation time and total cost of ownership, while achieving operational efficiencies and gaining greater visibility into their security environment. Gateway to unified access control Standalone and Standalone with PoE modes are targeted primarily at small commercial and select residential applications, while Mixed mode is recommended for enterprise-level deployments with Wiegand readers and integrates with LILIN's advanced Navigator series recording solutions. The software's multi-level mapping feature lets users monitor up to three live cameras at each intrusion area The web-based Access Control software provides a gateway to unified access control, enabling administrators to manage all of their security devices on a single interface. For example, the software's multi-level mapping feature lets users monitor up to three live cameras at each intrusion area, while logging the event in real time. If an alarm event occurs, the administrator is sent an e-mail notification and the software brings up live video on the screen for viewing. Capacity to store 20,000 card holders LILIN Access Control Software enables logged events to be fully searchable for later analysis, a process that is made easier by the software's ability to display individual logs with a snapshot of the person involved and employee information, if available, along with recorded surveillance video. Tampering with a card reader, forcing open a door, insufficient permissions, or propping open a door for an extended period of time are all events that would set off an alarm. Scalability of an access control system allows it to handle growing security concerns, whether it is hiring more employees or building an addition to a home. The LILIN system has the capacity to store up to 20,000 card holders and 65,500 events with support for a maximum of 1000 doors with three cameras per door. It also features high assurance Anti-Passback protection to prevent cardholders from double entering or exiting a door with a single card, along with a duress code to input for opening a door and sending an alarm.

LILIN Americas, an entity of IP video provider Merit LILIN serving North, Central and South America, today launched a new series of IP cameras featuring on-board Intelligent Video Surveillance (IVS) analytics, marking a significant milestone in the expansion of the company’s IP portfolio. Six cameras will make up the new LILIN IVS iMEGAPRO™ Series, including indoor and outdoor models in bullet, dome and box form factors. “Cameras with On-board analytics create more manageable and versatile IP systems by processing the video analytics at the camera instead of using a typical recorder with built in analytics that takes up recorder processing power by individual camera channel” said Joe Cook, Vice President/General Manager of LILIN Americas. “By incorporating this breakthrough technology into our IVS iMEGAPRO cameras, suspicious events or behaviour will minimize the number of false alarms by focusing on specific events through the use of video algorithms processed at the camera. Having less false positive events recorded will speed up the review of events minimising the time it takes to investigate alarm activity”. The systems integrator is able to program the camera to send data over the network based only on specific IVS alarm events freeing up bandwidth on already burdened connections to remote sites that may require the use of a cellular or other low bandwidth network. LILIN IVS iMEGAPRO IP cameras analyse and evaluate video before it is transmitted to a recorder or stored into the cameras’ built-in SD card slot, therefore reducing storage costs and false positive alarm events. By having the processing occur on an edge device, these model cameras provide a very cost-effective method of deploying video analytics. Tampering detection to alert operators of camera vandalism or when adverse weather disturbs overall camera performance Spectrum detection is designed for traffic light enforcement. It will detect when a light changes from green to red to help identify vehicles running the light at the intersection. Tripwire is the creation of a virtual fence around a user-selected area. When that virtual fence is crossed by a subject, it is detected by the camera and an alarm event is issued. Tripwire is ideal for where physical security is impractical or even impossible such as railway tracks and subway platforms. Advance Motion Detection/Edge Motion Detection: Traditional motion detection algorithms are performed by comparing two pictures’ colour space, luma (Y) and chrominance (UV). Because this approach can be affected by light source changes, false alarms may occur. For example, switching IR from colour mode to black-n-white mode may lead to a false alarm event. However, with LILIN’s new edge motion technology, detection uses a four-pass filter for separating motion objects and has proven to be more accurate. Plus, time of motion in a given direction can be detected by simply drawing an arrow on the video. People/Object counting detects when an object enters or exits a specified area of interest from any direction within the camera’s field of view. This is valuable when information is needed about the number of people or vehicles in an area of interest, or to learn the length of time a person spends in that area to identify loitering. People / object counting has been used for marketing purposes at retail outlets to study the patterns of the retail shopper for focus products on sale. Additional built-in engines provide alarm detection, motion detection and audio detection.
