Beam Summary

Have you ever felt that you could complete work at your office from home?  The Beam telepresence robots allow you to 'beam' into a remote location and have a presence there, saving you the time and effort and cost of travelling.

The Beam Plus (Beam+) is the latest telepresence robot offering from Suitable Technologies. Designed as a smaller, home-use alternative to its predecessor, the Beam Pro, the Beam Plus telepresence robot allows family members to visit with one another no matter where in the world they may be located.  It can be operated using a computer, tablet, or smartphone after being connected to a WiFi source and downloading the Beam app.  

Grandchildren can chat with their grandparents, a parent can read a bedtime story or sing a lullaby to their children, small business owners can drive to the desk of a coworker while away, or owners can simply check in on their pets while away during the day. One of the exciting new features from Beam is "Party Mode."  Party mode is an audio feature which allows the Beam+ to automatically adjust to louder environments.  The built-in noise cancellation is increased in addition to the volume from the speakers, enabling better listening whatever your environment.  Another advanced feature for you to look out for is the option to have arms and additional accessories added, which are currently under development.

The Beam Plus robot is able to overcome obstacles (changes in floor surface, cords, etc.) up to 3/4 of an inch high as well as being able to climb all ADA compliant ramps.

Feel free to browse the Beam Plus robot images, videos, and Beam reviews in order to see how the Beam+ can potentially help you whether in a home or business setting.
