    i am planning to go back to my country for couple months, and trying to access my work laptop which is gonna be at my house in NY USA,
    is this device gonna be helpful if connecting from other country and do the work in USA without my company knowing it?

    or if there's any other solution please let me know, thanks .

      TinyPilot can give you full control over the Laptop, "as if you where sitting at it". So in general "yes".
      But you have to take into account
      a.) Video picture you see will have a limited size ( 1920x1080 )
      b.) You have a latency of 200ms. So if you are planning to program "over internet with TinyPilot", it is not really perfect, if you type really slow it might work :-)

      Other than that, TinyPilot could be the solution, if you plan doing things like "checking things on the laptop", ... it really depends on what you plan to do. Don't hesitate to tell me more, and I can give a more detailed answer.,

          Thanks much for your reply,

          a) screen size i can manage that, at least its better than nothing, but
          b) when it comes to latency, i am basically a sys admin, mostly on daily basis i use Linux, kubernetes, Jenkins, gerrit to maintain the servers, and join Meetings on MSTeams, little bit latency should be fine, but if its something huge then definitely its gonna be a deal breaker,
          am glad you brought these points up. do you think with my type of job it will be not so difficult to access or use this device?

          Thanks much for your time.

            according to b). TinyPilot is done for sysadmin work. so thins should not be a problem. But I do not understand how/why you could use TinyPilot for teams. My assumption:
            Remote Laptop, connected to TinyPilot. This Laptop is doing the teams session. You connect to TinyPilot from "wherever" in the world and would like to work on the teams version with video and audio call. Right?
            If this is your plan, this won't work, as there is no audio "transfer" from the machine you are using to TinyPilot. It is like a TV, where you hear the sound from remote, but you still cannot talk to the people "in TV".

            I personally would always do things like teams in the most direct way, which is a VPN IMHO in this case.

                You're correct, the plan is to work from anywhere in the world with audio Only (No video required), For applications like Teams that require audio and video, a direct connection via VPN would indeed be the most efficient solution.

                      Hi @Zantosh
                      If you have figured out the Audio (mic over IP) and/or Video Cam (over IP) please do let me know, I would like to connect with you.
                      I have been researching for solutions to these, but havent found any reliable/working solution.

                          The only solution I could think of is to install Teams on your phone. Connect the Phone Directly to the Travel Router with VPN. Get a reliable VPN connection to jump Server in your USA City. Connect your phone directly to the Travel router with a VPN and now u will have Video and Audio
