Perimeter security allows for the definition of restricted areas, where movements result in alarms to notify of a possible breach of security. An alarm can be triggered according to defined criteria. Moreover, it is also possible to define various iCAT definitions and schedule them. For example, it is possible to have different iCAT definitions for weekdays and weekends.  



Video streams can be analyzed to detect people and count them. This adds business value to existing camera systems by providing additional information which is particularly useful in retail applications.
