DTEN Power Saving Management
The power-saving management system is designed to optimize DTEN device energy use, promoting both environmental sustainability and screen longevity . Through Orbit, users can select from three distinct energy-saving modes—Standby, Sleep, and Deep Sleep—ensuring a balance between efficient energy conservation and seamless user experience. This feature not only reduces energy costs but also aligns with eco-friendly practices.
The following sections will guide you through the steps to activate and customize these power-saving modes to take full advantage of these benefits.
- DTEN D7X 55 & 75 Windows with DTEN v3.6.0 or above.
Designed Use Case
The IT administrator aims to configure DTEN devices to use less power during inactivity yet become active when individuals enter the room, supporting the organization's goals for environmental sustainability, and energy cost savings.
Account owner, admin, or role with device management setting permissions to Orbit.
Configuring Standby Mode
In Standby Mode, the device’s screen will be turned off.
To activate and customize this mode in Orbit:
- Log in to your Orbit account, Go to Device Management >Settings.
- Navigate to the Power Saving Management section.
- Activate the toggle on the right side of Standby Mode
- Choose your preferred activation method for the Standby Mode:
- By Idle Time: Select Enter this mode after idle X minutes. The device will then move to Standby Mode after your chosen idle duration.
- By Room Occupancy (Default for New Devices): Choose Enter this mode when there’s no one in the room. Relying on the motion sensor, the device will enter Standby Mode when the room is empty and revert when someone enters.
- By Work Schedule: Select Enter this mode during non-office hours. Define your typical working hours, and the device will automatically enter the Standby Mode outside working hours and resume at the start of the next workday. .
Configuring Sleep Mode
For enhanced power conservation, Sleep Mode releases unused resources in addition to the feature of Standby Mode.
To configure in Orbit:
- Enable the toggle on the right side of Sleep Mode.
- Select the preferred time interval for the device to transition into Sleep Mode after it has entered Standby Mode. Note: By default, the device will transition to Sleep Mode 30 minutes after entering Standby Mode.
Configuring Deep Sleep Mode
Deep Sleep operates based on predefined working hours. In this mode, the device also disconnects from the network, and the wake-up time takes approximately 50-60 seconds.
To configure this in Orbit:
- Enable the toggle on the right side of Deep Sleep Mode
- Set your working hours. The system will move into Deep Sleep post-working hours and reactivate at the onset of the workday.
Q & A
Q: What is the relationship between DTEN's power-saving mode and Device Operation Time
configured on the Zoom Portal?
A: DTEN's power-saving mode and Device Operation Time on the Zoom Portal are independent of each other. We recommend using only DTEN's power-saving mode. However, if you choose to use the Zoom Portal's power-saving mode, it's best to disable DTEN's power-saving mode to avoid any confusion that may arise from having both DTEN's power-saving mode and the Zoom Portal's Device Operation Time enabled. If the DTEN option is used, then it should be turned off in Zoom’s Portal.
Q: What is the relationship between the previous Power saving feature on Orbit for DTEN D7X and the current Power Saving Management?
A: The new Power Saving Management is an enhancement and further optimization of the previous Power saving feature. The previous Power saving feature is equivalent to the Deep Sleep Mode within the current Power Saving Management.
