LILIN are pleased to be leading the way with their training programmes this year and have been awarded the Essential Install Trade award for ‘Training Initiative of the Year’.

The winning course was ‘Surveillance for Custom Install’. This CEDIA accredited one-day course focuses on the core elements of HD IP cameras and Network Video Recorders (NVRs) covering topics such as; Integrations, Cabling, IP/Network Infrastructure, IP Cameras and Addresses, Accessing Systems Remotely and more. The aim of this training is to leave Home Automation dealers and installers feeling confident about using LILIN security solutions in their custom installations. Whether a novice with little experience, or an expert who wishes to top up their knowledge, this course can be used to gain an understanding of the benefits of LILIN technology which can be utilised to help you win new business. LILIN will be running ‘Surveillance for Custom Install’ again on 27th August; sign up through Invision: or call the UK office to reserve your place.

LILIN recognised a need to support Home Automation dealers and installers, and ultimately wanted them to feel confident when using LILIN solutions. Surveillance for Custom Install training was actually developed from an earlier LIILN training programme, IP Bootcamp, which was designed to help installers transitioning to IP.

IP Bootcamp is another popular LILIN training initiative. By the end of this non-sales focussed session, security installers are able to successfully specify and set up an IP system. LILIN are pleased to have received acknowledgment for their ability to deliver truly valuable and free training to installers. The carefully structured course addresses topics such as; introduction to IP, upgrading from analogue to IP, understanding IP architecture, benefits of PoE and live demonstration and training. IP Bootcamp has received a number of positive testimonials, and in particular has been praised for its ‘hands on’ nature: “Excellent demonstration and hands on experience on the basics of IP based CCTV installations. Great way to gain general knowledge for installing, configuring and selling an IP system.” If you are an installer and would like to take advantage of this free opportunity, LILIN strongly encourage you to sign up for the next IP Bootcamp on 24th July, which will be held at the UK head office in Milton Keynes.

Another date for your diary is 30th July when LILIN will be holding a Product Morning.

Winning ‘Training Initiative of the Year’ at the Essential Install Trade Awards demonstrates LILIN’s hard work in delivering and fulfilling their industry’s training needs.
