Security Cameras

OU Information Technology provides design, installation, and maintenance of network security cameras for all campus departments. Video from these cameras is stored for 15 days and may be viewed by authorized employees of the subscribing department as well as OUPD.


Installation requires a one-time cost incurred by the requesting department and depends on camera type and installation environment. For installed cameras, recurring annual costs will be billed to the department to cover central administration, maintenance, and video storage.

Customized, detail cost quotes will be provided on a case by case basis for each specific system configuration.


Cameras can only be installed in authorized locations and where there is appropriate connectivity to the campus network. Access to cameras is limited to authorized employees of the subscribing campus departments.
