Yes. Adding a Tetherbox to a larger overall system will provide the following benefits:
Record a subset of cameras locally and/or in the cloud (e.g. Tetherbox Pico can record up to 10 cameras).
Remotely tunnel to any IP or Serial device on site.
Remotely update firmware and (re)configure cameras / routers / switches.
Monitor the health 10x more cameras (e.g. Tetherbox 5 channel can monitor 50 cameras, Tetherbox Giga 20 can monitor 200 cameras, etc).
Display a 1fps live feed of 10x more cameras.
and many more benefits, you can schedule a live demo here: https://calendly.com/tether/live-demo
All cameras added to the Tether platform will be added to your Health Dashboard, whether they are being recorded or not. This means you can still monitor the health of the whole system and receive notifications such as a camera going offline. You are always up to date.
A Tetherbox will only record a set number of cameras (e.g. Tetherbox Pico 10 will record 10 cameras). This means the following benefits will only apply for up to the channel limit of the Tetherbox:
Ability to access Tether recorded events from a browser and app
80% reduction in time to find past events
Event representative thumbnails with a red box around the object of interest
Ability to share events with a tap
See all events across all your sites side by side
Time synchronised time-lapse across all your sites
and many other benefits of the Tether platform
Note: If you need to record more cameras at a later date, any existing Tether system can be upgraded by adding an additional Tetherbox
