LILIN are one of the world’s biggest security surveillance companies and they are our preferred supplier for security systems due to their innovative products, build quality and reliability.

Digital home technology provides the ability to manage virtually any device in the home and places the control in the homeowners’ hands, even when away. With safety being a major concern, surveillance and alarm systems naturally tie into the home automation scheme, and innovative integrations mean the term “smart home” not only translates as being high-tech, but also as being safe.

An example of LILIN innovation is the recent launch of a Push Video app for iOS and Android platforms, called LILINViewer. The LILINViewer takes a step beyond conventional CCTV systems as it provides a real-time alarm system which pushes the actual video feed of any disturbance into an iPhone / Android smartphone device, or iPad tablet, whenever there is a suspicious motion movement.


Continuing with LILIN’s dedication to diverse and cutting-edge integration solutions, the new Digital Home Solution from LILIN and Control4 is an amazing step for home automation technology. This new partnership adds to the LILIN experience with a smart, convenient and efficient method of managing and monitoring HD video through the Control4 interface.  The entire LILIN product range is now compatible with Control4 systems, allowing users to view and control their LILIN cameras on any Control4 device.

The setup is simple: Download the device drivers from the Extra Vegetables website, pull them into the Control4 Composer interface, and enter the camera’s IP information into the device settings menu. The control features available allow users to move cameras, zoom, and select presets directly from any Control4 interface – including TV’s, mobile devices, and touch-screen stations!  Whether pulling a 16-camera view onto the TV for constant viewing or checking in on the kids from an iPhone during a lunch break, the Control4 & LILIN integration makes safety, security, and peace of mind the simplest of solutions.

More about Control4

With Control4 you can start small by automating just your family room or home theatre. Or enlarge your system with whole-home automation. Control4 is built to grow as you go and no matter what the application, your home can become a richly rewarding environment to inhabit.  With a Control4 system you’ll wonder how you ever lived without home automation.

Control4 often use the phrase “Start small, dream big” to explain that one of the best things about a Control4 home automation system is that you really can start off with just a small piece of the entire puzzle and then build on it from there. For example, you can start off with just a universal remote solution and then, in time, add lighting and a smart thermostat so that you can control all of that with your initial remote. Or you can start with a security system integration and then, further down the road, add in whole home audio so you can enjoy music in any room of your home.

Rayleigh Sound & Vision has a wealth of experience in integrating Control4 home automation systems, of all levels of sophistication, into a wide range of properties and is an accredited Gold Dealer because of our expertise.  Please contact our Chelmsford or Southend store for further details or to visit the Control4 website here:
