Security Cameras

Security cameras will be used in a professional and ethical manner in accordance with university policy and local, state and federal laws and regulations.

Requesting Security Cameras

To request a security camera for your department, please review the following information regarding the costs as well as the UIS Camera Policy. If you would like to request a security camera for your department, please contact the UIS Campus Police at uispolice@uis.edu for approval.

There are two types of cost, the onetime purchase of necessary items and the optional ongoing yearly cost of storage.

One time costs:

  • Cost of camera – ranges from $500 to $2500
  • Software license – $145
  • A work order will need to be submitted to Facilities and Services for mounting
  • $200 installation charge for an active network port, if needed

Ongoing costs:

  • Storage fee – ITS will store 30 days of recordings at no cost (at a resolution of 720p/H264 codec). If the department requires longer-term storage, there will be a monthly charge per GB.
