The Crestron Mercury is a device for the conference room that, when attached to a Zoom Room, can operate as a combination of a speakerphone and a controller. Zoom and Crestron have partnered to provide this combined solution by embedding the Zoom Rooms controller software within the Crestron Mercury firmware. The Crestron Mercury is available either as part of a Zoom Rooms Crestron Kit or as a standalone device. Additional details are available on the Crestron Zoom Rooms, Crestron Support and Release Notes websites.
Note: The Zoom Rooms Crestron Kit already includes these components with the exception of the flat panel display.
To use the device in a Zoom Rooms Crestron Kit as the Zoom Rooms controller:
To use a standalone Crestron Mercury as the Zoom Rooms controller:
Tap the Home button.
Press and hold Help for approximately 10 seconds to display the System Info screen. Note the IP address or host name and tap X to close the screen.
On a computer connected to the same network as the device, open a web browser and enter the IP address of the Mercury on the address bar and hit Enter.
On the Welcome screen, click Sign In to continue.
Enter the default user name “admin” and password “admin”, then press Enter to continue.
Note: Prior to displaying the prompt for login credentials, the web browser may display a security warning message about the security certificate. It is safe to ignore this warning as long as the user verifies that the browser’s address bar indicates the correct IP address or host name of the device.
On the left-hand side menu, click Device.
Navigate to the Applications tab.
Select Zoom Rooms from the Application Mode drop-down menu.
Click Save Changes.
If the Zoom Room set up on the Intel NUC or Mac mini computer is already online, sign in to your Zoom admin account on the Mercury and select the Zoom Room from the list. Otherwise, enter the pairing code found on the Zoom Room display connected to the computer.
Note: If you see a Sharing Key instead, click Sign Out to view the pairing code.
The Crestron Mercury device is now enabled as the Zoom Room controller, and can be used in exactly the same way as the Zoom Rooms Android controller. See Zoom Rooms Controller Features and Zoom Rooms Attendee Features for details.
