5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Product for Working Remotely! I wish I knew about this years ago., July 22, 2016

This review is from: Beam System for Remote Communications Plus Dock (Office Product)
I have been working remotely for just over a year now. When I first started, I was using Skype to video chat with people in my company's main office. I had seen the Double Robot on TV (I know that's a different model, more on that coming later!), and I originally joked about getting a Telepresence Robot. The Double Robot was going to cost about $3,500 all in with an iPad and all of the accessories - which in my opinion was a lot of money to risk on trying something like that.

Over time I figured out that although I was able to be productive working remotely, what I missed was having a presence in the company's main office. When you have to get someone on the phone, it's easy to get into a pattern of "I'll just wait until the next time I see them in person to ask them." There's also something to be said about being in the action of what happens at your office - you miss a lot of the excitement when you work remotely.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly delivered beyond what I expected., October 11, 2015

So I've had this a week in the office and have used this to its limits and I have to say that it's better than I expected when I purchased it. The image quality, sound , and responsiveness is great. After 2 days it's become an accepted part of the office where folks just start engaging just as if I walked in their office.

It's actually so good that we are planning on purchasing these and sending them to our offices in India in order to assist with daily operations and training remotely.

It does need a healthy Internet connection so this made us upgrade to the multiple antenna Goggle OnHub which worked out great as it toggles 2.4 and 5 Ghz. I have even very successfully run this on a 4g tether via AT&T from my cell phone, next week I will be attaching my blackberry to the back and tethering Internet so we can take this beyond the limits of the office.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Family Caregivers, January 19, 2017

The Beam experience has been fantastic. I have an elderly mother and a sister with Down's Syndrome that stay in a retirement home. The Beam allows me to "pop in" and talk with them at any time. They can see me as well which really adds a personal touch. I drive the beam around their apartment with no problem.

It really is a great product if you have an elderly or disabled loved one that you want to check in on. It can also save you money because you won't have to hire a caregiver. Or, if you do use a caregiver like we do, we're able to get by on fewer hours with the caregiving service. So for us, the Beam pays for itself in about a year if we only save one hour per week($35p/hr).
