Read about how Duke University Libraries found a new use for their 1st gen iPads by using our mounts:

“When we heard that Duke University Library was doing something cool with their surplus iPads, we had to find out more. In a nutshell, they upcycled several gen1 iPads to create touchscreen room booking interfaces, using LibCal, outside their reservable Project rooms.”

Customer Visit – Amherst College

Seeing our mounts used by customers makes us happy. The other day we drove up to Amherst, Massachusetts to see our products in use at Amherst College.

The college purchased quite a few of our mounts with our wall angled attachments along with many accessories.

We arrived at the Campus Center building and upon walking in we were welcomed by one of our mounts!

Amherst college utilizes an extensive information website for mobile devices that is customized to perform perfectly on iPads.

The college places iPads throughout campus in convenient locations so that students and visitors alike can access information at any time on a large clear iPad screen, Any information about the college one desires can be found at m.amherst.edu. The web browser used, combined with a style of our mounts which covers the home button, prevents the user from switching to any other website or app, so they can only see and browse the Amherst information website.

Browsing this website using the iPad, we found extensive information such as:

  • Campus Map
  • Building Hours
  • AC Dollar Deposits (Student funds card – information, deposits etc.)
  • My Academic
  • Course Schedules
  • Athletic Events – schedule and information
  • Event Calendar
  • Dining Hall Menus
  • Room Draw Ticker
  • Computer Lab Machine Availability
  • Library Catalog and Information
  • Bus Schedule

And much more, even Web Laundry!

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!
