Is it possible to remotely power on/off a crowdbeamer device?

While a crowdbeamer device cannot be remotely powered on/off directly, an interesting alternative is available as from firmware 2017.08.01. Via the administration web interface, you can configure your device:

  • to auto-switch to sleep mode (low power consumption) in case no active input device is detected and/or no clients are connected
  • to auto-start (e.g. after a power failure)
These two features allow you to mount crowdbeamer on the ceiling of a meeting room, or in any position that cannot be reached easily, as the device will manage its on/off behavior all by itself.
