The system also integrates with several specialised analytics devices. The analytics software provides triggers to the system. This enables it to take
user-defined actions depending on the specific trigger received, including:

  •  Notify a control room gateway
  • Move PTZ camera to preset position
  • Send an alarm to a selected recipient
  • Send an SMS or email
  • Switch selected cameras to selected monitors
  • Switch a device on or off


One of the major differentiating features of Cathexis, is the capability to integrate various third-party systems. Integration is enhanced by predetermined actions upon information received from various systems and the association of specific actions for events. Third-party systems integration for effective control room monitoring, include:

  •  IP Cameras
  • Access and Intruder Control
  • Fire Panels
  • Alarm Panels
  • Environmental Mangement
  • License Plate Recognition
  • Legacy Integrations

Interactive Graphical Interface

The interactive user interface provides a visual representation of single or multiple sites. Operators can navigate through multiple layers of maps to selected sites, drag-and-drop cameras to selected monitors, control outputs, and move PTZ cameras. Users can also navigate multiple sites throughout the enterprise with the map facility.

Health Monitoring

The Cathexis solution provides continuous monitoring of all the components, including hardware and software integrity, providing automated warnings of any possible impending failure. Maintenance engineers can perform corrective maintenance before the system fails.
