Physical Security

General Information

OIT offers the installation, configuration guidance and automation for physical security technology to the university. Physical security technologies encompass security cameras, electronic access control, intrusion detection, and custom alarm panels. Stakeholders will configure access through software supported by OIT. Stakeholders are responsible for initial response and monitoring, unless otherwise negotiated with the CMU Police Department. For solutions outside OIT’s expertise or standard operating procedure, OIT will act as proxy for stakeholders in order to integrate custom security solutions.


Faculty and staff can submit requests for this service. Students, faculty, staff and external partners can utilize physical security though access control hardware.


Time, material, licensing, and recurring maintenance costs apply to all security installations, configuration requests, and external costs.
