Host & Controller

Shows host and controller status and details:
  • Status
  • Device name and model
  • OS name and version
  • Device OS/firmware version
  • RCV app name and version
  • Public IP address
  • Last reboot time

Status & Health trend

Rooms Status Health Trend widget.
This table shows room and controller status and health over the last seven days. The thick bar will be red if the room is offline and grey if the room is online. The thin bar will vary depending on if the room is in warning, critical, or good health. Hover over the widget for more detailed information on the reasons behind a room’s health status. 
 
This can help show patterns in disruption. For example, if a room goes offline every night and is back online in the morning, it could be a result of the controller’s charger being unplugged, leading to the controller being uncharged. Identifying such patterns can help IT admins evaluate root causes for rooms going offline, and they can take measures to prevent future disruptions.

Peripherals

Shows status for primary and backup peripherals:
  • Mic name and model
  • Speaker name and model
  • Camera name and model
Rooms Peripherals widget.
Primary speaker/mic/camera will be indicated with a star.

# of Meetings

Shows number of meetings per day over the last seven days. This helps understand room usage and can help prioritize room monitoring.

Copy to Clipboard

Information in the details card can help identify whether a current setting might be causing issues in a room. For example, an outdated RingCentral app version might affect meeting quality.
