Zoom Room Controller Features

Zoom Rooms must be associated with a controller.

The following devices can be controllers.

  • iPad
  • Android tablet
  • Crestron Mercury (same function as Android tablet)
  • Windows 10 tablet

Exception: Exception because the Zoom Room

touch screen for Touch has a built-in controller function.

The Zoom Room for Touch works with or without a controller.
However, we recommend that Zoom be paired with the control for full functionality.

Frequently Asked Question


With a single click of your IPAD or Android Tablet, you will be able to launch a scheduled or instant meeting. Using an IPAD or Android tablet controlled interface, it is easy to control the meeting, such as muting, inviting and so on. In order to make your life easier, Zoom offers the ability to replace your cables with wireless screen sharing technology.
Multiple controllers can be added to a Zoom Room, but these controllers must all be the same type, and they must all be associated with the same Zoom Room (e.g. you can’t use one Windows controller and one Mac controller, but you can use two Windows controllers).
To present something from the computer on the Zoom Room screen without creating an entire Zoom Meeting, you can use the Presentation feature without the need to create a Zoom Meeting. This is useful when you are using a Zoom Room for a meeting that does not involve remote participants, but you need something from your computer to appear on the Zoom Room screen during the meeting.
All users in the account will be able to upgrade their Zoom Rooms by following the steps below:
  1. For the purpose of changing your account settings, you will need to sign into the Zoom web portal as an administrator if you do not have admin privileges on the portal.
  2. You can access Zoom Rooms by clicking on the Room Management link in the navigation panel.
  3. To access the Devices tab, you need to click the Devices button.
  4. Upgrade Zoom Rooms by clicking the Upgrade Zoom Rooms button.
  5. Confirm the upgrade by clicking the Upgrade button.
Depending on your preference, you can either use accessibility shortcuts on the keyboard or double tap Zoom on the screen with three fingers to turn it on.
Here are the steps you need to follow in order to use the Zoom Controller:
  1. Using the controller, you will be able to see the Zoom menu: Tap it to activate it.
  2. By double tapping the controller, you will be able to zoom in and out.
  3. You can pan the camera by dragging the controller when you are zoomed in.


Zoom Desktop Client automatically connects to a Zoom Room when the attendee clicks Share Screen when a Zoom Room detects a signal from a Zoom Room. In the event that proximity detection cannot be enabled, a direct sharing mechanism can be activated, and participants will be required to enter a Sharing Key, which is a string of letters that facilitates the direct sharing process.
