The Surveillance Challenge

In response to this changing landscape, the use of surveillance systems is increasing exponentially.  Hundreds of cameras are feeding dozens of monitors with control room operators required to identify events when not all the camera views are visible and whilst attending to other tasks within an active, dynamic control room.

The results are that threat and risk events are being missed and potentially escalating into events that raise security, safety, and operational risks affecting people, property, and brand.  Surveillance networks that have been heavily invested in are not being fully utilised and are used predominantly for post threat and risk review.

Dynamic Live Monitoring

iCetana equips modern surveillance systems to deal with the defining threats of our times and the risks faced by highly populated areas from threats unseen and unnoticed.  iCetana provides the essential capability to immediately highlight these risks and threats.

iCetana helps turn these vast surveillance infrastructures into dynamic, live, monitoring systems. Guards, operators and security companies, become a key part of a command and control operation and a real-time response network immediately responding to exceptional security, safety and operational events before they escalate.

These include:

  • suspicious behaviour.
  • crime, assaults, and fighting.
  • access control related to people and vehicles.
  • loitering and trespassing, including no-go zones.
  • irregular vehicle movements.
  • crowd gatherings and dispersal.
  • precursor events such as dry runs, casing buildings and public spaces.

iCetana’s system has proven itself in city wide surveillance, public infrastructure, transport, utilities, educational campuses and shopping malls.

Threat and Risk landscapes are changing and evolving faster than ever. Threats are presenting themselves in new forms with increasing risk to staff, customers and the public. Learn about the challenges faced by the video surveillance operators.



The main campus of Swinburne University of Technology (SUT) is located in the inner-suburb of Hawthorn. This presents various challenges for the security team to assess situations and assist in real-time and ensure the protection of its students, staff, and building facilities across its campuses - especially after hours.
