IMPORTANT NOTE: The TCS-CAM is no longer in production. We now produce the new model TCS-CAM II, with jpeg compression and available in GSM and GPRS.

DPS-Promatic has developed TCS-CAM a reliable GSM digital camera for stand alone applications.
With this GSM camera it is possible to take a picture and send it over a GSM network.
It comes into a weatherproof IP56 box with Ni_Cd battery pack and AC adapter.
TCS-CAM is a reliable solution to set up security cams that are really stand alone
It is not aimed at the consumer market, where many camera phones are available. It has been engineered for professional use. You can leave it alone in the top of a mountain and control it completely from a remote location.
At the bottom of the page you will find an executable in Visual Basic that you can install in your PC to try our existing cameras, that is part of the package we supply with the TCS-CAM.
Please take a look at the TCS-CAM picture gallery. We have actually downloaded those pictures using the TCS-CAMs and the same software that we provide on line on this page.
We have also setup a WEB server that calls 2 of our GSM cameras during the day and publishes the pictures on line. Check real time TCS-CAM pictures of our factory on our TCS-CAM database on line.

    The above screen is what you see once you have installed the TCS-CAM Controller in your PC.


    Pushing the limits: the above configuration is quite extreme, and still perfectly working. a Apple Powerbook G4, with Virtual PC and Windows 98 in emulation mode, that uses a Ericsson T39 as a GSM modem, connected via Blue Tooth. We go around with a telephone in the pocket and dowload images from our cameras without any problem.
