Healthcare Security Solutions that go beyond Surveillance

Video Analytics

Cathexis offers a range of video analytics to improve the effectiveness of the system, including:

  • Analytics on vehicle movement, parking
  • Smart Video Motion Detection
  • Abandoned Object Analysis
  • Post Object Search

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

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.


A differentiating feature of CathexisVision is the capability to integrate with various third-party systems. This enhances the site security management by centralising control and providing video verification of third-party site events. The associated event details and data is overlaid on the video. Predetermined site actions can be triggered upon receipt of this information. For example, on receipt of an alarm from the re detection system, the access control system can be controlled automatically or manually from CathexisVision to open all emergency doors.

Third-party systems include:

  • Access Control
  • Fire Detection Panel
  • Intrusion Alarm Panel
  • Perimeter Fence Monitoring
  • Point-of-Sale Systems
