Meetings can be accessed from a dedicated device from home using Zoom for Home. Users or IT departments can purchase and set up the solution, which supports integrated audio/video conferencing and wireless screen sharing. Individuals need a Zoom account and a device that is compatible with Zoom to get started.

- Devices that are compatible with Zoom for Home (Appliances)

- A compatible device (Appliance), such as one that is compatible with Zoom for Home – DTEN Me, is required.
- If you have not already signed up for a Zoom account or if your organization hasn’t provided you with one yet, sign up for one right now. The use of Zoom for Home does not require a special license. This means that anyone who has purchased or subscribed to Zoom for Home can use it.
- Select an area for your display. Attach a power source and an internet connection.
- You will now be able to use Zoom for Home. From the home screen, tap on Sign In.
- From the list of options that appears, pick one of the following:
Pairing code with web browser
- If your organization uses single sign-on (SSO), then you will need to choose this option. The pairing code that appears on the screen should be written down and then a web browser should be opened on another device to view it.
- Enter the pairing code on www.zoom.us/pair after you navigate to www.zoom.us/pair.
- You will be asked to confirm your sign in attempt when you arrive at www.zoom.us/pair. Press the Yes, It’s Me button.
- This process can be completed automatically if you are setting up the account on your own. If your organization has provided you with a room, you can select it by tapping the checkbox next to it.
Sign in with email

- The setup process will automatically complete if you are performing it yourself. Your organization may have provided you with a room for you to select.
Setting a Screen Lock Passcode and Configuring Auto Lock
Whenever you are away from your desk, you can lock your device with a passcode, or you can set your device to auto-lock in case you forget.
- As soon as you sign in, you should be asked to create a screen lock password. In the lower right corner of the screen, tap the settings option if you want to do the installation later.
- Press the Screen Lock option. You can confirm your choice by creating a passcode and entering it again.
- By selecting Auto Lock Screen After Inactivity from the settings page, you can set the device to automatically lock the screen after a certain period of inactivity. You can let the screen automatically lock every time if you choose to do so, but if you don’t, you will have to lock the device manually from the home screen every time.
