Provisioning Zoom for Home devices

Last Updated:

Supported Zoom for Home and Zoom Room devices can be provisioned for users from the Zoom web portal by administrators as a Personal Zoom Room. This creates a streamlined setup process for home users, since administrators can configure and manage basic settings for them.

This article covers:

Prerequisites for provisioning Zoom for Home devices

  • Role with access to Room Management 
  • Zoom Rooms for Appliances version 5.1.2 or higher
  • Zoom Rooms for macOS version 5.9.0 or higher
  • Zoom Rooms for Windows version 5.9.1 or higher

Note: Zoom for Home smart displays cannot be provisioned this way.

Licensing

You can provision devices for any user in your organization without using any of your Zoom Rooms licenses. However, to enable the optional Personal Zoom Rooms Pro device functionality, a Zoom Rooms license is required.
