The interface between ICX-AlphaCom and CathexisVision VMS is available from Cathexis, and uses an IP connection and the VS-SDK, where all event data is sent through to CathexisVision VMS from ICX-AlpaCom.

The main functionality of the integration:

  • On initialization the ICX-AlphaCom events received by CathexisVision include site hardware information.
  • An integration database is configured in CathexisVision in which all event information is recorded. This can be search for specific events based on filters as required.
  • During operation video from cameras associated with the relevant event hardware can be recorded and viewed live and system events can be triggered in CathexisVision based on the intercom activity.
  • Audio communication (send/receive) is not available through the integration, so only the intercom event details are recorded.


  • CathexisVision 2020.4 and later.
  • Windows 10: 64-bit and later, Win Server 2008 R2 and later.
  • AlphaCom software version and later.


The integration is licensed


The integration requires licenses in addition to the standard CathexisVision system licenses.

  • CSTF-2000 Device base license, where 1 is required per site
  • CSTF-1001 Object (station) license, where 1 is required per station

The above licenses can be purchased as a bundle license, CSTF-3000.

For licensing details, please contact Cathexis.


ICX-AlphaCom requires the presence of the appropriate API/OPC license.

  • 1002602306 - ILI-API64 - API License Supporting 64 Stations
  • 1002602309 - ILI-API512 - API License Supporting 512 Stations

With ICX it is possible to purchase a single Product Key which covers all stations connected to all ICX's in a network. ICX licenses can be stacked, i.e. 1x 1002602306 + 2x 1002602309 gives 1088 API licenses which can be used on 2 or more ICXs.
