Zoom Rooms Operation Time Follow

Overview

You can conserve energy by dimming the iPad Controller during non-work hours. During the configured time, the Zoom Room displays will be black. Specify a schedule for the devices in your Zoom Rooms so that they dim during times when the Zoom Room is not in use.

NoteOur recommendation is to use Dark Mode/Operation time to put TV to dark mode instead of using HDMI-CEC. For more information, please see: Zoom Rooms TV On/Off Configurations.
