Merit Lilin Overall Experiences And Feedback

Hello all,

Looking to evaluate Merit Lilin brand products.

They seem to be a true manufacturer from what I can determine. They manage R&D themselves. Work towards better network security...etc..

Just looking for feedback from anyone on how they fit in on price for run of the mill IP cameras/embedded NVR's/PC based VMS

Comparing to Hikvision products in general as a baseline is where I'm coming from.

Matt, thanks for the question! Merit Lilin has been around for a long time, at least in the US, they never made much of a push (or at least from what I could see). They had a long term leader in the UK, Jason Hill, but he left earlier this year.

We have never tested them so I can't say how good they are. They just never got big enough or pushed hard enough in marketing for us to justify testing them.

I did scan import records and they supply to Control 4, screencap below:

I worked on a takeover project with their cameras. They said they were ONVIF but wouldn't work on an ONVIF VMS. The factory said they were Chinese ONVIF whatever that means.

LILIN follows standard ONVIF Profile S protocol and have a test facility at our office in LA for select VMS platforms to include Genetec, Milestone, Exacq, Avigilon. LILIN is a Genetec Silver partner with and Milestone Technology Partner

If there is a specific VMS, let me know and we will look into it for you. The camera feeds are standard RTSP all using ONVIF protocols.
