Physical Security

Physical Security Systems (PSS) is an ITS service team that provides support, training, and oversight of campus electronic door access and CCTV systems. We manage the campus enterprise applications that support wireless access management systems for Omnilocks, the CCURE system, and Genetec video.

In collaboration with University Police, the PSS team also performs physical security assessments and consultations for campus facilities and helps to educate the campus community about physical security.

Hours of Operation

Staff are available during campus business hours to assist with issues. Clients of this service are provided additional details on how to get after-hours vendor support.

Standard Maintenance Schedule

A regular maintenance window will be scheduled for each installation. Systems will still operate normally during these times.


Please see the pricing page for detailed information. In general, capital projects that include physical security devices cover the initial expense of equipment and labor. After the warranty period has elapsed, divisions/units are responsible for replacing and preventative maintenance expenses of the equipment.
