American Dynamics' LookOut Camera Pre-Packs combine two options in a single housing, which can be either surface or flush-mounted (the latter requiring only three screws).

Sixty-four macro keys provide up to 1000 macros while smart card technology can transfer programming from one keyboard to another and provides three levels of security.
