Key Capabilities

Microsoft Teams on RealWear HMT-1

Microsoft Teams on RealWear turns the HMT into a voice-activated remote collaboration headset that can be deployed to outfit a fully connected workforce. RealWear is the only company that has a certified intrinsically safe head-mounted device for extremely hazardous areas where explosive gases are present. 

Initiate a Teams call

The expert or the first line worker can initiate a call in situ from anywhere in the world to resolve a complex procedure. Initiate the call with simple voice commands and dictation in 12 languages.

See what I see

The front line worker can share their point of view instantly with the back office subject matter expert, like when using their hands to point to issues on a piece of heavy equipment, with full zoom features and high resolution smart camera.

Capture and share

The expert can pull up any Microsoft Office 365 document, PowerPoint, or Word file and instantly send it to the worker’s micro-display. The display appears to the worker as though they are viewing a 7” Android tablet.

Resolve in realtime

The back office expert can annote a photo that was sent by the worker on a mobile device, then send it back to them seamlessly. The worker can then immediately resolve the issue without requiring costly travel of an expert. This allows the expert to work on many issues at once across multiple facilities.


Communicate in loud environments with HMT-1 noise cancellation via four digital microphones and advanced algorithms. Accurate voice recognition even in 95 dBA of typical industrial noise.


Capture photos and videos hands-free with simple voice commands. Say what you see (“take photo”, “photo preview,” “zoom level.”)


Integrated speakers and 3.5mm audio jack for use with hearing protection.


View documents, photos and video files locally stored or stored on an installed MicroSD card using the My Files app.
