Use those First Generations iPads!

First generation iPads are for many outdated, and one of the older models’ biggest issues is battery life.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.”

Gary Russel, the President of LiveSmart Technologies, shared with us a recent showcase installation of a home control system Their goal for this project was to achieve the following functionality:

  • Smart Home system control
  • Video surveillance
  • Music control
  • Maps
  • Photo frame

 

LiveSmart technicians chose for this installation the following Apps and systems:

  • The Lowes Iris system for central control
  • Q-See system for video surveillance
  • iTunes, Pandora and SiriusXM for music
  • Apple Maps App and Google Maps for Maps
  • The iPad’s built-in slide show for photo frame

 

For this home installation, the iPad Wall Mounting Bracket chosen was a white, Exposed Home Button, Magnet Latch version.
The installation went smoothly, and to quote Gary “The mount was easy to install and work with.” Our Remote Charging Kit was also considered for this job but ultimately not needed. An electrical outlet was utilized during installation close to the mounting bracket, therefore the standard Apple charger and cable provided was sufficient.

Garry summed up his experience of the installers working with our iPad Mounting Brackets:

The iPad Wall Mount worked great for our application. The iPad serves as a central controller for the smart home including temperature settings, lighting control, video surveillance and music streaming. The team at iPad Wall Mount is first rate and went above and beyond traditional product support.”

And that is music to our ears!

Meetings of the Minds – iPads for Conference Room Scheduling

Conferences are a vital and integral part of the corporate world.   There are literally hundreds of thousands of “round table” discussions  happening the world over at this very minute – happening in hundreds of thousands of corporate conference rooms!

Is this conference room booked?  How many times is this question being asked in the work environment?

Reserving that conference room can be a very stressful proposition to many. Scheduling conflicts arise too many times to count!
Each and every meeting is equally important, no doubt, but there is a frustrating possibility that the room you need is already in use exactly when you need it!

Ender Labs has devised a great solution by developing a scheduling software called EventBoard Pro.  This software has revolutionized the way corporations handle meeting room scheduling, thus eliminating any conflicts or potential problems.

Here’s how it works. An iPad is placed in a secure and stylish iPad Wall Mount bracket just outside the conference room door.  EventBoard Pro is the software that is running on the iPad, and is displaying all the important information pertaining to that conference room – for example – the name and/or number of the room, any current or ongoing meetings, all future meetings that have been pre-scheduled, the participants and topics of each meeting, along with the meeting times, days and dates. Many more scheduling options are available and can be customized to fit the needs of that corporation.

Because the iPad Wall Mount Bracket securely showcases the iPad, the software display is clear, and large enough to easily read, with all important information visible, even from a few steps away.  Display customization is an included feature. If a particular room is currently available, the screen displays a large “Room Available” banner that can be seen from across the hallway. If the conference room is free and you need it now, you can quickly “book it” using the iPad touch screen, which alerts others that the room is currently in use, eliminating any conflicts.

Scheduling a meeting is simple by using your existing calendar application. The system can sync with most,  if not all, of the calendar apps used in a business environment, because it is using the iPad’s calendar application. Sync with Google Calendar, Microsoft Outlook / Exchange, iCloud, AOL, Yahoo!, and Hotmail – EventBoard Pro picks it up and “books” the selected conference room.
