In one compact wall mount device, the Crestron® TPCS-4SM delivers a
total control solution for a small conference room, hotel room, condominium,
or townhouse. Its built-in 3-Series® control processor and 4.3” color touch
screen combine to deliver a complete, space-saving solution for controlling
lights and shades, audio and video, heating and air conditioning, and many
other functions.
Go Anywhere Design
With its clean, contoured appearance, the TPCS-4SM makes an elegant
statement in any environment. A choice of mounting options allows the
TPCS-4SM to be installed in places other touch screens can’t go. It can be
installed on a wall over an electrical box, placed on a table, or mounted to
virtually any flat surface — even glass, granite, or marble.[1]
No Equipment Rack Required!
Ideal for environments with limited space, the TPCS-4SM encapsulates
the industry’s best control technologies in a low-cost, space-efficient
design that can alleviate the need for a separate equipment rack. Onboard
Ethernet and Cresnet® ports provide the essential connectivity for
integrating a roomful of equipment and connecting to the building network.
Expanded connectivity is available using a C2N-IO Control Port Expansion
Module, a wireless gateway, or other Crestron interface products.[2]
Smart Graphics™
Its high-resolution 4.3 inch (109 mm) color touch screen display provides
a fully-customizable user interface that’s both intuitive and fun to use.
Advanced Smart Graphics technology delivers a dynamic user experience
with gesture-driven controls, kinetic effects, animated feedback, rich
metadata, and embedded apps and widgets.
Optional Dual-Color Backlit Buttons
The TPCS-4SM ships with a set of 10 optional “hard key” pushbuttons,
which may used to access commonly used functions such as turning
lights on, adjusting audio volume, or opening the front door for a guest.
Dual-color backlighting allows the buttons to illuminate either green or red,
providing indication of a waiting message from the front desk, incoming
| 800.237.2041
call, security system alert, or any other important notification. The button
backlighting can also be used to enable individual button feedback or
simply provide a beacon in a darkened room. The backlighting is fully
dimmable to allow for just the right brightness. Customized labeling of the
buttons can be attained using Crestron Engraver software.[3]
The TPCS-4SM ships with the optional hard key pushbuttons installed.
Blank “no-button” covers are included, which may be installed over the
button areas to either side of the touch screen display, affording a clean
appearance with just the touch screen for control. Installation of the button
covers is done simply using a small flat blade screwdriver.
Audio Feedback
Customized audio files can be loaded to add another dimension to the
touch screen graphics using personalized sounds, button feedback, and
voice prompts.
Proximity Sensor
The TPCS-4SM senses as you approach it, waking its display automatically
without having to touch the screen.
3-Series® Control Engine
The TPCS-4SM features a scaled-back 3-Series control processor, which
can potentially eliminate the need for a separate rack-mounted control
system for many applications. Crestron 3-Series delivers a robust, dynamic,
and secure control system platform capable of faithfully managing a room
full of disparate technologies — from audio and video equipment to
lighting, climate control, shades, drapes, and other amenities. Rock solid
networking and IP control afford seamless integration with other systems
and devices, with add-on control capability using additional Crestron touch
screens, keypads, wireless remotes, and mobile devices, as well as remote
management through Crestron Fusion® Enterprise Management Software.
Power over Ethernet
Using PoE technology, the TPCS-4SM gets its operating power right
through the LAN wiring. PoE (Power over Ethernet) eliminates the need for

TPCS-4SM-B-S with “No-Button” Covers
TPCS-4SM-B-S with WMKU-4SM Universal Wall Mount Kit
a local power supply or any dedicated power wiring. A PoE Injector
(PWE-4803RU [2]) simply connects in line with the LAN cable at a convenient
location. Crestron PoE switches (CEN-SW-POE-5 or CEN-SWPOE-16 [2]) may
also be used to provide a total networking solution with built-in PoE.
Equipped with a Cresnet master port, the TPCS-4SM supports the full line
of Crestron keypads, lighting controls, shades, thermostats, sensors, and
other devices that don’t require the higher speed of Ethernet.
Control Port Expander
Interfacing with IR, serial, and relay controlled devices is facilitated using
the C2N-IO Control Port Expansion Module [2]. The C2N-IO is a compact
device that can be mounted virtually anywhere. It connects to the TPCS-4SM
via the Cresnet port, and provides one bidirectional RS-232 port, one
IR/serial port, and two relay ports for integration with third-party devices.
A single C2N-IO can be connected directly to the TPCS-4SM without
requiring an additional power supply. Besides the C2N-IO, the TPCS-4SM
is compatible with the complete line of Crestron control modules, 3-Series
control card interfaces, sensors, lighting controllers, thermostats, keypads,
and wireless gateways to accommodate virtually any control function or
system integration need.[2,4]
Native support for the BACnet/IP communication protocol provides a direct
interface to third-party building management systems over Ethernet.[5]

“No-Button” Covers and
TTK-4SM TableTop Kit
TPCS-4SM-W-S with
“No-Button” Covers and
MSMK-4SM Multi-Surface Mount Kit
(Shown w/optional angle bracket)
Simple, Versatile Mounting
The TPCS-4SM installs easily on virtually any mounting surface. As
standard, it mounts directly to a single-gang electrical box (horizontally
oriented) or European electrical box, requiring just 1/2-inch (13 mm)
mounting depth while protruding less than 3/4-inch (19 mm) from the wall
surface. It can also be adapted for mounting to a vertically-oriented 1-gang
or 2-gang electrical box, or a 2-gang UK electrical box, using the optional
WMKU-4SM Universal Wall Mount Kit [2], which can also be used without an
electrical box for a low-profile surface-mount solution [6].
For impenetrable surfaces, such as decorative glass, granite, marble,
plaster, smooth stone, and masonry, Crestron offers the MSMK-4SM MultiSurface Mount Kit [2], which provides a very versatile mounting solution
complete with a low-profile rear shell enclosure, adhesive mounting plate,
optional angle bracket, and wire raceway.
Tabletop Option
Using the optional Tabletop Kit (TTK-4SM [2]), the TPCS-4SM becomes a
stylish, freestanding touch screen that fits perfectly on a table, desk, or
countertop. It can be permanently attached to the surface in a fixed
position, or it be attached using the optional Swivel Mount Kit
(SMK-4SM/730 [2]) to allow for up to 330 degrees of rotation.
