Alarm management

 

 

A full user-managed alarm management facility enables the effective handling of alarms and events and logs all actions taken by operators and allows managers to generate reports for ongoing system optimisation.

The CathexisVision advanced search tools enable operators to quickly and efficiently find the relevant video and data associated with specific event to facilitate immediate response. These features include activity trails, motion search, snap-search, timeline search and database mining

Events or alarms can be triggered from many different sources, including:

  • Video analytics (either server or camera based)
  • Physical inputs
  • Triggers from 3rd party systems (like fire panels, intrusion panels, access control systems etc.)
  • Technical alarms (e.g camera failures, failover)
  • User triggers

Actions can then be taken depending on the triggers received. These actions may include:

  • Switching a camera to a selected area on the video wall
  • Moving a PTZ camera to a selected zone
  • Playing tones in the control room or elsewhere in the facility
  • Sending a notification to the control room alarm management client
  • Sending an SMS or email to selected recipients
  • Switching an output (e;g warning light, siren)
  • Controlling a 3rd party system
