Zoom Rooms can be added via the Zoom Room Controller or the web portal.

From the Zoom Room controller, you can quickly create a new Zoom Room. Using the controller, you can set the room name, place, and passcode, as well as integrate a calendar. Use the web portal for additional configuration options.
