Zoom Launches an all-in-one Home Communications Appliance at a Price of $599


Zoom is a social app that allows for screen sharing, messaging, as well as video conferencing across any device. It is now one of the best online communications ever since the coronavirus pandemic.


However, the Zoom company found out that so many employees still find it very hard to set up the equipment and the software to effectively hold a meeting. The answer of the company is surely an all-in-one communications appliance with Zoom software. Which is ready to work or operate in a simple touch interface.

The Zoom for Home – DTEN ME is produced by partner DTEN. The device includes a large tablet that is well furnished with three wide-angle cameras and it is created for high-resolution video as well as 8 microphones.

It also includes a stand-alone screen of 27 inches. The device is pre-loaded by Zoom software. Also, the interface of the device is built and designed in such a way that it gives users the opportunity to easy access of well-known Zoom features.

Zoom Comments Concerning the New

The head of Zoom Rooms in the person of Jeff Smith says that the main idea is to produce an appliance that you can easily remove out of the box. Which will be ready to use with less difficulty.


Jeff Smith said to TechCrunch: “Zoom for Home is an initiative from Zoom that allows any Zoom user to deploy a personal collaboration device for their video meetings, phone calls, interactive whiteboard annotation”. He further added: “All the good stuff that you want to do on Zoom, you can do with a dedicated purpose-built device”.

He mentioned also that the device was created and designed with simplicity and clarity in mind. So that you can easily remove it out from the box and also open the interface. Just by inputting a paring code on a website either on your mobile device or your laptop. As soon as you see the interface, kindly click on the function you prefer. You can choose either to begin a meeting or to start up a phone call and it will automatically connect.

Its Amazing Features

You can as well link it directly to your calendar. By doing this, all your meetings will be shown in a sidebar, then if you want to connect, click on the next meeting.

If you want to share your screen, this will require an ultrasonic pairing between the appliance and your mobile device or your laptop. Smith says: It works simply like a Bluetooth, however, it sends out a sound between 18 and 22kHz. That so many people can’t hear so as to connect the two devices. Instead of sending out a radio signal.

He as well added that Zoom will be launched together with two extra partners. Not excluding the Poly Studio X Series and the Neat Bar. Smith says he might also include other partners later in the future.

The Price of the DTEN Appliance


The all-in-one home communications appliance device will cost $599 and it operates with a current Zoom license. The company has been taking orders and the devices might be shipped next week.
