Conventionally in order to get the board room ready, the person needs to:
Turn on the projector with its remote…wait until it warms up and figure out the right input depending on the application (presentation, video conference, etc)
Put the projector screen down from the wall switch or remote
For each TV, find it’s remote and turn on the TV and set it to the right input again depending on the application
Adjust the volume of the speakers from the wall knob
Turn down the blinds with the wall switch or remote or manually
Turn on the lights to the appropriate level
When the meeting is over, turn off all the devices with their remotes and return the screen, blinds and light back to normal levels.
Another benefit of a smarter boardroom is that it will automatically alarm the technical staff about the status of the critical equipment such as the projector’s lamp health through email or text. Equipped with this data, the staff can strategically allot service calls to ensure that each presentation is run smoothly and worry free.
