First generation iPads are for many outdated, and one of the older models’ biggest issues is battery life. For applications where iPads are mounted and allowing continuous charging, these “old” devices perform perfectly.
Many customers contact us and purchase our iPad mounts for exactly that. Here is an excellent example.
NCSU (North Carolina State University) had some of these first generation iPads lying around. Here is what Robert Holloman from NCSU’s DELTA told us:
“We are using the brackets to re-purpose old first-generation iPads to use as digital signs for some of our conference rooms, using the EventBoard app and Google calendar.”

Use those first generation iPads! Mounted in our brackets, these devices are perfect for digital signage, scheduling, advertising, interactive directories, automation and control and countless other applications!
We are always looking for innovative ways to use our products, and we love it when our amazing customers provide us with invaluable feedback, like this written review and video from Brad from Chickasha Oklahoma, showcasing our bracket.
Brad's iPad Wall Bracket Review
I wanted to do a review of this iPad wall bracket I purchased from iPadWallBracket.com. My main reason for purchasing this unit is my wife wanted a convenient way to check our video surveillance system without having to walk to the monitor located in another room. She wanted something centrally located so anyone could easily see who was at the front door.
I initially shopped for a small LCD monitor, but ran across this bracket and thought of the convenience of using an iPad and how I could also use it for other things as well such as streaming music. Since the iPad uses Wifi, it easily connects to my computer to access my video surveillance system with a user friendly app specifically designed for this application.
The photo shows the back panel of the 2 piece bracket. The bracket can be flush-mounted into the wall, or surface-mounted as shown here.

The quality, fit and finish of this unit are excellent. The company that created this product really did their homework. The bracket is made of metal and is light but sturdy. Even the screw holes are beveled! My initial plan was to flush mount the unit into the wall, thinking it would look better than surface mounting it. The bracket looked so good surface mounted that I chose not to cut my sheetrock.
In this picture you are looking at the backside of the face plate.

You can see the hinge insert tabs to the right of the bracket and the magnetic lock to the left. Notice the black foam pads on both the face plate and the base of the unit. These pads hold the iPad securely in place, not allowing it to move or get scratched. The later model iPad’s such as mine will require thicker pads to hold it securely as they are thinner than the earlier generation units. They also sell these pads on iPadWallBracket.com.
Some of the tools I used to install the bracket were just a simple Phillips head screwdriver and a couple of Phillips screws. iPadWallBracket.com sells mounting kits for these but I chose to use my own. I used a small level and a 3/4″ hole boring spade bit which is the size of the hole in the back of the bracket. This is to run whatever wires or cables you’re using. I’m running a charge cord to a charge cord extension that I will plug-in in my attic. I’m also running 3.5mm audio cable to my attic that then runs to a 3.5mm splitter to my stereos throughout my home. This allows for music to be streamed from different sources throughout my home. What a great feature that is!! Gone are the days of the CD for me.
This is a picture of my video surveillance feed.

I have a high definition surveillance system and you really can’t find a better video screen than what the iPad offers. The picture is just incredible!! This unit will remain on all the time. As you know with an iPad, I can play music while still keeping my video surveillance on the screen!
Here is a picture of the bracket in relation to the wall and surroundings.

It is very discrete so surface mounting is a great option. I am extremely satisfied with this unit and look forward to installing my second iPad wall bracket soon, and maybe a bracket for the mini iPad as well.
Time will tell but these things are just fantastic!!

This amazing middle school boasting 600 students is involved in some incredible things. They’ve spearheaded major humanitarian projects such as the “Africa Project” where students collect and send supplies of all kinds to South Africa. Beaver Lake Middle School was among the first in the state to launch a Respect & Responsibility leadership program that has become a regional leadership model.
Of course there are a few fun facts as well..Beaver Lake is one of only a few schools in Washington state to have a Wood and Metals shop, AND the only school to have a live mascot! Buddy the Bulldog!
“I chose to use your brackets for the library to enable students to access our card catalog quickly” says Amber Peterson, the school librarian. “Previously students could access the catalog on the desktop computers in our lab but they had to log-on and wait for the computers to warm up.”
“With the instant “on” of the iPads I am finding students are using the catalog much, much more than they did in the past.”
“Students also use the iPad stations for quick look-ups. For example, looking up the capital of Indonesia or how to translate a phrase to Spanish. They are going to the iPads first before asking me for help, which is great. I love the self-sufficiency”
Amber also shared with us a picture of a tall stack of reference books and catalog computer that the iPad stations have replaced. She enthusiastically commented “Pretty Cool!” We couldn’t agree more, Amber!
Educators now realize that the iPad is an excellent and effective tool for learning, and are appearing in schools across the world. The iPad wallmount bracket and its many accessories is the perfect complement to showcase and display these iPads while keeping them securely in place as well as preventing unauthorized software to be accessed.
Last week I traveled to Monterey, California on business (yes it was a pleasure!) I stayed in a very well-known, luxury hotel overlooking a gorgeous golf course. This hotel had many of the usual amenities: Room service, a huge spa-like marble bath, laundry service, cable TV, even free in-room WiFi.
This hotel was luxurious and comfortable and I enjoyed my (way too short) stay very much.
But…In my opinion, this hotel was lacking a very important feature: Convenience.
When I visited the lobby, or meeting rooms, and even in my room, I wanted information and it wasn’t conveniently available in any one place.. I wanted to browse through services; local Chamber of Commerce websites, schedule a business meeting or reserve a conference room, or even order room service…all without the need to ask, call or stand in line to be helped. What I really wanted was an iPad available wherever possible with the hotel’s software running, allowing me to search, read, schedule or do whatever I needed with information the hotel can provide.
So here’s my system description and wish list for hotels worldwide:
Hotel restaurants’ location, hours of operation and menu. Option for reservation if needed.
Room service information, menus and ordering option.
Hotel services information. Laundry, swimming pools, WiFi, golf, sauna…
Local area information, with links to Chamber of Commerce – Restaurants, taxi service, attractions, driving directions.
My guest specific information, rates, self checkout.
Request for late checkout, extra towels, pillows.
Rate my stay…Add a hotel review!
Much more information and detail can be added. The list is endless!
Any hotel will benefit GREATLY by mounting iPads in secure and sleek brackets. By tracking guests’ requests, and satisfaction, it allows the hotel to offer impeccable customer service, virtually guaranteeing repeat bookings and 5-star reviews!
So, hotels worldwide, please listen! Today millions of people are using iPads to do just about anything you can imagine. Give us more reasons to do what comes naturally to us all – Give us iPads!
Who doesn’t want a beautiful smile? It’s one of the first things people notice. Everyone also knows that getting (and keeping!) that beautiful smile means spending time in the dentist’s office.
The professionals at a large Minnesota medical and dental group want their patients to spend as little time on the sign-in process as possible. So this state of the art facility has discovered a way to virtually eliminate waiting time by utilizing iPads to make this process happen quickly and efficiently. Now patients are seen almost immediately!
By now iPads are everywhere, and there’s nothing quite like them! We don’t think twice when seeing them in corporate offices, medical and dental clinics, schools and even restaurants.
People love using iPads, and because people love them so much it means that they’re now doing more than ever – iPads are as common as toothbrushes it seems!
As patients enter these comfortable and personalized medical and dental offices, they see an iPad mounted securely at the front desk in its sleek and stylish bracket.
By simply typing in their name, the appointment time and the medical professional they are visiting pops up automatically. Once confirmed, all that information is electronically sent directly to the treatment room, where another iPad, mounted on the wall, alerts the staff to their arrival, allowing the dentist or doctor to access each patient’s chart before treatment is started, then easily update all records post-treatment, immediately and efficiently. This system saves time and further eliminates the need for files upon files stacked up on a desk!
Since this iPad is mounted to the wall with an angled Desk/Wall attachment, the convenience of it is truly state of the art. The mounting brackets come in various colors and finishes, including sleek matte or gloss black, silver and bright-smile white.
Another innovative medical office is taking full advantage of everything the iPad has to offer. A large dental practice in Nevada mounts an iPad at their check-out desk where patients are encouraged to log in to their website and enter the Smile Gallery to read (and add their own!) testimonials of satisfied patients. Log on to their Facebook page, or Yelp and write a review, or share an experience. This is a great way to bring new business to the practice, as well as involve current patients in the complete and positive experience!
These Board Certified Dental professionals have dedicated their careers to helping their patients achieve beautiful smiles, as well as creating a comfortable and positive atmosphere for every patient.
Visiting the dentist or doctor does not have to be a stressful occasion. The whole painless experience starts with the ease of signing-in or registering for your appointment on an iPad professionally mounted in its bracket, and continues with comfortable and personalized dental and medical care.
We live in a society supported by computerized devices helping and guiding us through everyday activities, with new applications being created daily.
Some will blow your socks off, and some will have you put your sneakers on. Advanced Fitness Technology, Inc., an innovative fitness equipment company out of Kinnelon, NJ, added another creative way to utilize iPads with their fitness equipment.
By mounting an iPad Wall Bracket onto their machines, and placing an Internet connected iPad running their free App, the “i-Form II“, they combine a fitness guide AND virtual personal trainer within their fitness equipment.
Through the Internet connection, i-Form II delivers personalized training programs structured to chart your progress, help you get optimal results to meet your fitness goals, as well as communicate with their trainers or your own personal trainer.
With easy visibility and access, the iPad, secured in its mounting bracket, provides progress reports, workout routine guidance, demonstration videos and personalized progressive training programs geared toward each individual’s fitness profile.
This system is geared to be a great motivator. During your workout, i-Form II displays YOUR specific exercises on the iPad screen, including number of sets and reps.
When your workout is complete, i-Form II “remembers” your specific profile, with every detail, including the weights you used, as well as sets and reps. Your fitness achievements are recorded and stored to help you achieve the goals you set.
Mount the iPad in its bracket, stay in shape and you too will say iWorkOut!
