The Tek Surveillance Console is a structure in Genesis: Part 2. It enables the Survivor to monitor an area through a network of linked Cameras, somewhat reminiscent of the Scout Remote. From these cameras, the Survivor is able to remotely interact with Structures and Creatures.



  • The Tek Surveillance Console is the first Structure to be able to be remotely spoken through, whereas the Radio is the first Item.
  • When remotely interacting with Structures the Tek Surveillance Console is able to access the full Structure Radial Menu, Excluding Demolishing & Inventory Access Prompts.
  • When remotely interacting with Creatures the Tek Surveillance Console is able to access the full-extent of the Dino's Radial menu excluding Inventories and ride prompts.
  • The surveillance console does have a 3000m maximum camera range, to rough estimates a console at the far end of the North Eden Zone mountain hide away ( the visible building under a mountain) can pick up use cameras in the middle of the Eden zone city roughly 100 foundations from the edge of the city.
  • The Tek Surveillance Console is able to link unpaired Cameras that are spawned in via commands.
