What does Tether connect to?

Tether integrates with 3 primary product categories:

  • Video Surveillance - including cameras, recorders, PTZ, 2-way audio, horn speakers and more ranging from legacy devices from the 90s and 00s including most of the latest AI cameras.

  • Alarm Panels - including legacy alarm panels requiring a serial connection or more modern panels with either a local RESTful interface as well as cloud providers.

  • Access Control - including connecting to existing access control systems (such as Paxton Net2) or connecting to access control units directly, for example Hikvision Face Station.

We also integrate with other enabling device categories including but not limited to:

  • Managed Switches & Wireless Bridges - We use SNMP as well as some API integration to track wireless signal strength, to remotely power cycle ports and more.

  • Relays & Sensors - IP relay/sensor boards for applications such as parking automation.

  • Serial Devices - We can open serial connections and consume data from just about any serial device, please contact us for more details.

  • Matrix Displays - Usually for an ANPR application.

  • IoT Devices - We are compatible with IoT devices through our API and our roadmap for 2022 includes integration with IFTTT.

  • Other - If there is a commercial application, we may be open to integrating your device into Tether.

API Integration

You can use our API to push information or pull information to/from the Tether platform. Please refer to our API documentation: https://my.timeline.is/api/index

For example, you can create your own logic to send an http request for a fire alarm that can be processed by Tether.
