Zoom Room alerts

Last Updated:

The Alert Settings tab lets you specify the alerts that you want to see on your Zoom Room screen, as well as the settings that generate an email that is sent to a specified email address of a person or group who can respond to the alert.

Disable the options on the Client Alert Settings section if you are using the Zoom Room to view content rather than present content. This prevents the alerts for microphone, speakers, and camera from displaying on the screen. If you leave these options enabled, the room can become disabled if those peripheral devices are disconnected.

How to configure the alert settings

How to use the client alert settings  

The Client Alert Settings section includes alerts that display on the TV screen of the Zoom Room. Disable these settings if you have deliberately disconnected one or more peripheral devices or have never enabled them. 

  • Alert when detect speaker errors
  • Alert when detect camera errors
  • Alert when detect microphone error

For example, if you are using the room only to attend meetings or webinars in which no one in the room will need to speak or be seen, you can disable the alerts for microphone errors or camera errors. If these alerts are enabled, the room cannot be used until the peripheral devices are connected.

How to use the notification settings

The Notifications Settings section includes the circumstances in which the room sends an email to the support team to notify them of a potentially urgent issue. These issues can affect the operation of the room, but do not display on the TV screen. The email alert is sent to the email address specified in the Notification Email Recipients section. Emails are sent from no-reply@zoom.us.
