Rapid deployment CCTV tower
A revolution in CCTV
iCAM-Tower – a fast deployment tower allowing to create a video monitoring point very quickly. Designed to ensure the complete safety of construction sites, critical national infrastructure, or any location where temporary monitoring without an external power source is required.
Effectively deterring by preventing an intrusion attempt
The 5-meter high tower provides a highly visible deterrent to help prevent intrusions and effectively deter potential criminals from vandalism and theft.
The entire system can be installed and ready to work in just a few minutes – ensuring immediate protection of the facility – no wiring or installation work.
Numerous observation cameras, motion sensors, audio speakers supported by the high-class iCAM-LTE transmission system effectively eliminate the need for expensive protection, reducing security costs by several times without compromising reliability.
Safety at the construction site
Temporary protection of works
Tool workshop security
Protection of warehouses and construction vehicles in remote locations
Security of important public events
Prevention of cable and metal theft
Project management and work review
Time-lapse videos, e.g. 12 months in 3 minutes
In addition to the five-meter structure itself, the iCAM-Tower is equipped with all the necessary electronics to ensure:
- 360°HD video monitoring around and within 200m range
- live video transmission via 4G / LTE with remote access to recordings and system settings
- self-protection of the tower against disassembly, change of position, tilt and opening
- detection of movement near the tower
- sound and light warnings
- removable battery power system
- recharging batteries from solar panels.
The key features of this comprehensive surveillance solution include wireless 4G / LTE video and audio transmission with full control and alarm notifications, cameras, infrared night lightning and automatic audio speakers. In addition, it is equipped with local video recording with image recording up to 90 days back and a battery power system supported by photovoltaic panels.

Versions of iCAM-Tower surveillance towers
Selection of available rapid deployment CCTV towers:
- iCAM-Tower 5MQ4 – version with PTZ camera and 4 AI cameras with intelligent functions of human or vehicle recognition. Lowest false positive rate. Effectiveness of human or vehicle recognition: >97%. The tower also has PIR detectors with a range of 12m/360°, megaphone and LED white light halogen lamps.
- iCAM-Tower 5MQ4 BACK – parameters identical to above but without cameras and without NVR – special version for mounting your own cameras and recorders.

Lightweight and easy to transport
Mobility, mobility, and again …
Each camera, PIR detector, loudspeaker, or overhang cable can be quickly replaced without any tools. The whole thing has been designed in such a way that replacing the camera with a new one consists of sliding it out of a special slot and inserting a new camera. The wired connection of the camera is done via an ordinary UTP network patch cord with RJ45, which has PoE power supply for the camera and data transmission. The mounting socket is secured against slipping with a padlock or a carabiner.
Tower on wheels
Even greater mobility is ensured by transport on a miniature trailer with a drawbar on a towbar. By placing the tower on a trailer and screwing it to the base, you get a fully mobile tower on wheels that you just need to park in the workplace and secure with retractable supports.
Very easy transportation
…. and moving to a new location. The tower consists of three basic modules that are very easy to assemble on the spot. Each module is small enough to be transported by any small delivery vehicle, e.g. VW Caddy. iCAM-Tower consists of:
- Base construction that protects electronics and batteries
- Retractable tower, which is screwed to the base with 4 screws
- Covers of the tower, which protect mechanisms against vandals and where there is space for advertising or warning information
- Tip with the cameras, that slides easily to the top of the tower
Hooks for lifting the entire tower, e.g. with HDS.
Rails for forklifts or pallet trucks.
First of all, safe construction
The height of the mast after extension is over 5 m and the maximum vertical load of the mast on the top is 100 kg!In addition, a reinforced, stable structure with safety lashings and steel guards protecting the key lifting and lowering mechanisms guarantee safe use. We have also not forgotten about the investor – there is space for your advertisement and logo on the covers.
Lots of transmission options
Each tower allows transmission via:
- 4G / LTE (and 3G, HSUPA, HSDPA i GPRS)
- Wi-Fi with 50m range
- Broadband radio with a range of 3 km
- Wired LAN
- Satellite broadcasting.
Each tower is standard equipped with the possibility of connecting 230V AC and 12V DC. Additionally, some models have alternative power supply, such as:
… 2x200Ah, for work in harsh weather conditions from -20 to 80°C – each tower has space for two 200Ah batteries each. The tower automatically charges the batteries when connected to a 230V power supply. 12-16h is enough to fully charge the batteries. An example from construction sites where every few days, during eight-hour construction works, employees connected the tower to the 230V network, automatically charging it. The user is informed about each charging / discharging activity and the level of charge of the batteries via SMS.
Solar recharging with a power of 350W or 600W – the use of solar systems mounted on the tower significantly extends the working time without charging or replacing the batteries. The 600W system in the summer period completely eliminates the need for additional recharging of batteries, which makes the tower self-sufficient in terms of energy.
230V AC i 12V DC
External power source, e.g. from a 230V extension cord, a generator, an inverter, a car cigarette lighter or an external 12V battery.
