The new iRoom iDock Aluminium, Landscape iRoom motorised dock is the perfect way to store and charge your iPad Air or iPad Pro 9.7. The dock is available as the LBA-5 or the LWA-5, landscape black or white in-wall iPad motorised dock.
The iRoom iDock Alu Landscape has a magnetically attached aluminium bezel and comes with the new lighting connector for power and audio connections.
The stylish iRoom docks allow you to use your Apple iPad for home automation control with a wide range of downloadable apps for control of audio, video, lighting and climate as well as the traditional touch screen apps such as weather and time, and for music playback.. Naturally it also provides continuous charging of the iPad and connection to the locally available Wi-Fi.
Apps such as Command Fusion, DemoPad and iRule using the Global Cache GC-100 or iTachinterfaces allow you to extend this level of control with sophisticated graphical interfaces and macros.
Using a Wi-Fi connection when the iPad is docked, apps supported by iPad can be downloaded for integration with the control system. A gentle tap on the multi-touch display or swipe and tap provides easy access to the range of apps available. Downloading of new apps and iTunes® content may be done with the iPad mounted in the iRoom via your Wi-Fi network.
Installation of the iRoom iPad iDock – Alu Landscape version
The iRoom iDock can be installed in solid or dry stud walls but must only be used with the flush-mounted back box (part number BB-B) if you are installing it into a solid wall or if there is any chance of dampness behind the stud wall affecting the mechanism. Operation without the flush-mounted back box outside these conditions will void the warranty. Even in stud walls we would strongly recommend the use of the back box as installation without it is quite difficult.
For easy removal of the Apple iPad you activate the invisible proximity sensor and the Apple multi-pin connector automatically unplugs and withdraws, allowing the iPad slot to tilt forward by 20°. The iPad slot remains in remove-position for 10 seconds – after which the slot is automatically moved to the closed position and the Apple connector . As an alternative you can disconnect the proximity sensor and connect an external device, such as a simple contact switch located elsewhere, onto the unused terminals.
If the slot mechanism is overloaded, the iPad slot automatically moves to remove-position to avoid injury and damage to the equipment. Likewise in the case of a power failure, the iPad slot again opens to guarantee removal of the iPad.
Single room solutions, eg hotel room, bedroom, etc
The iRoom iPad iDock lends itself to simple single room solutions for a hotel bedroom or kid’s bedroom. Using an in wall amplifier with the iRoom iPad iDock provides an easily accessed local music source with the minimum of complicated wiring or controls. By connecting the iRoom iPad iDock directly to the rear of the in-wall amplifier, you can create a very neat solution, whilst still giving the freedom to plug a laptop into the front. Wire the audio output to a pair of in-ceiling speakers (4 or 8 Ohms) to complete the package.
The iRoom iPad iDock Alu Landscape is designed for the iPad Air with Lightning connector or the or iPad Pro 9.7
