The Security Camera is used with the Computer to allow you to view parts of your base using a computer terminal without actually going there. Computers do not record; rather, they allow the player to access certain views of their base with a simple click. Additionally, the Security Camera offers several options for viewing, such as panning the camera, night vision, player highlights, and more.

The first thing you will need to access your Security Camera is a Computer. This can be crafted:

Optionally, you can specify a name:
