REMOTE ASSESSMENT GUIDE
Zoom is a web-based video conferencing tool with a local, desktop client and a mobile app that allows users to meet online, with or without video. Zoom users can choose to record sessions, collaborate on projects, and share or annotate on one another’s screens, all with one easy-to-use platform.
A Zoom account isn’t required to attend a meeting. Users do need a Zoom account to host a meeting. … Anyone can join a meeting using the Zoom mobile apps or desktop applications for Windows and Mac.
We recommend joining your Zoom meeting on a Desktop PC, Laptop or iPad. Your host will be sharing their screen with you so it is important you see all the relevant information during your home energy assessment.
You do not have to have a Zoom account to attend a Zoom meeting or interview. You will be prompted to download the software, once you have clicked on the link that you have been provided. You may also wish to create an account, but that is not required to participate in a Zoom meeting.
We MUST be able to see your annual estimated consumption and price per unit as opposed to just your monthly spend. This way we can accurately determine your earnings and savings from a renewable energy source, without this we cannot validate your system before installation.
It is not a requirement, but we do recommend you are visible to our energy assessors on camera. It is important to see your visual reactions as well as your voice. It makes it easier for them to see if you understand the details of the system and information they are providing you.
All decision makers of the property. Due to finance regulations we MUST HAVE everyone attend who is going to decide on any changes that may affect the home. If all partners are not present then unfortunately the meeting will not take place and have to be re-arranged at a time most convenient to you both/all.
Unfortunately your Zoom meeting will need to be rebooked. We are under strict regulations to make sure all details are given to all decision makers to prevent mis-selling.
It’s our recommendation to use WiFi for the best overall experience. Each one-hour webinar using Zoom requires about 60M of data storage so try not to use your data plan if at all possible.
The Zoom web client allows joining a Zoom meeting or webinar without downloading any plugins or software. However, the web client has limited features and functions best on Google Chrome.
Yes, please make sure you are using a device that allows you to speak with our assessors using a microphone.
