Remote work and distance education are becoming increasingly prevalent in businesses and schools across the globe, and organizations must ensure that their staff have the tools they need to get the best possible communications experience at home. As part of our effort to support everyone working from home, Zoom is announcing the launch of our new category, Zoom for Home, which allows anyone to deploy a dedicated personal collaboration device for video meetings, phone calls, and interactive whiteboarding. This category combines Zoom software enhancements with compatible hardware to upgrade the home office experience.
•Included with Zoom Meetings: Log in to a Zoom for Home compatible device with a Zoom user account to instantly create immersive office experiences without additional licenses (Zoom for Home is available with all Zoom Meeting licenses, including Basic).
•Always ready: Easily start ad-hoc or scheduled meetings, virtually collaborate with content sharing and annotation, and make and receive phone calls (Zoom Phone license needed).
•Personalization: Syncs with the user’s calendar, status, meeting settings, and phone for an integrated video-first unified communications experience.
•Flexible management options: Zoom for Home devices can be set up to be IT-managed remotely through the admin portal or self-managed by the end user.
•Purpose-built devices: Ensures hardware is designed specifically for simplified setup with little to no IT support, optimized for desk setups, and meets the price point for a home office setup.
