In this article, we will discuss some features that apply to non-operating hours. We recommend utilizing Room Controls to control display systems based on operation times. This way we can control devices directly, dictating exactly what command goes to the device based on the event within the Zoom software.
This article covers:
Room controls will allow direct IP control of a device over a network based on operating hours as defined by the user. We recommend getting a secondary network adapter for your Zoom Room computer and assign a static IP to that network adapter. Using a small switch, connect the Zoom Rooms computer USB network interface, as well as network-controlled devices, to that network switch.
In this example, we will provide files for single and dual LG UH5EB displays. IP addresses will match the sample static IP table.
In this example, we will control two projectors. Using response filters, we will listen for an acknowledgement from the projector of an on/off command, resulting in a customized event to lower or raise the screen to align with the system. Buttons will be available for projector control which will translate to screen control.
Zoom Rooms video output will automatically go black during non operation time. No setup necessary.
Note: Zoom recommends using the Device Operation Time Black Screen Mode to put TV to black screen mode instead of using HDMI-CEC.
Zoom Rooms no longer support CEC controls via the Zoom Rooms application. Room Controls are the contemporary solution.
