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First generation iPads are for many outdated, and one of the older models’ biggest issues is battery life.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

Brad’s Review – Home Video Surveillance and Music Center

 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.

Brad's iPad Wall Mount Installation

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.

Brad's iPad Wall Mount Installation - Front and Back Panels.

Brad’s iPad Wall Mount Installation – Front and Back Panels.

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!!

Meetings of the Minds – iPads for Conference Room Scheduling

iPad mounted by a conference room door
iPad mounted by a conference room door

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.

Download the app for free here, and sign up for a free trial with Ender Labs at www.eventboardapp.com

TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL! iPad Wall Mount in Goddard Schools.

TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL!
Apple iPads are so mainstream by now that soon it will be impossible to remember a time when they weren’t anywhere and everywhere. So it stands to reason that with iPads came tons of innovative, creative and useful accessories…We love to dress up our devices!

The accessory creating the most buzz right now is the Secure iPad Wall Mount Bracket.
The iPad Wall Mount Bracket!  Of course….The perfect tablet accessory!  Getting utilized by the thousands already, it’s just a matter of time before iPads will be securely displayed in these sleek and secure brackets in every public place, and used for everything you can imagine!

A good everyday example for such a use is The Goddard School,  a large preschool franchise across the country which currently has close to 400 schools and growing, is using the iPad Wall Mount Bracket in the most innovative ways.

Utilizing their own web-based management system they have put into practice both a schedule and time manager program for staff, and most original – An electronic sign-in system for parents and students!

  • iPads are securely mounted and posted at each entrance to the schools. (in some schools,  multiple brackets are mounted to accommodate many parent sign-ins at one time during the morning rush)

    • Each parent or guardian is assigned a PIN code, and signs in the child electronically. This “electronic sign-in book” helps the school to keep more accurate and readily available records.

      • iPad brackets are also installed in teacher staff rooms. Staff members sign-in to gain access to the daily schedules, etc and allows them to maintain their attendance records at the same time.



      The USB extension cables are a perfect accessory for school use allowing the iPads to stay charged all day while posted at entrances. 

      Goddard Schools have made substantial investments of both time and money with iPads, and the accompanying in-house software…so the brackets and related accessories provide the functionality and ease of access,  as well as stylish display that is needed, making perfect sense on many levels!
