Mattoon Schools: State-of-the-Art Video Security System Donated

By John Kraft & Kirk Allen

On November 14, 2017


The Mattoon School District held a meeting this evening in which one of the items was a presentation by Todd Ratliff.

Todd and Becky Ratliff own and operate “Total Home and Farm Video Solutions” (“THFVS”) out of Mattoon. They are a local, veteran-owned company who hires veterans and other local residents.

Ratliff presented a donation of a state-of-the-art video surveillance and security solution to the school district. In conjunction with his donations, he presented representatives from Panasonic and Razberi. Panasonic agreed to donate the cameras and software, and Razberi agreed to donate the servers and additional security software.

This will assist in a more secure and friendly environment for the students of the district, and enable parents to have more peace of mind when their children are at school.

Donations include:

  • 60 – cameras from Panasonic with a value of over $33,000
  • 3 –  ServerSwitchIQ Pro systems from Razberi with a value of over $20,000
  • All the boxes, radios, cabling, and mounts were donated by THFVS with a value of around $9,500
  • Additionally, the Mattoon School District will cover the prevailing wage labor at a cost of around $20,000

The Board unanimously accepted the generous donation.
