Are iPads dual purpose control devices?

Absolutely! iRoom's docking stations not only turn an iPad into a stationary wall-mounted or tabletop device but also have a touch keypad that connects to any professional 3rd party control system. With the control app on the iPad and additional wired control through the docking station’s Quick Keys, AV professionals have a legitimate alternative for reliable control.

iRoom’s on-wall, in-wall and tabletop docking stations are popular amongst AV integrators and custom installers across the globe when it comes to adding iPads to commercial or residential control projects.

The built-in control processor and touch keypad offer AV control over Ethernet independent of the iPad. iRoom provides drivers for all major third-party control systems such as Crestron, AMX, Control4, Kramer, Extron, Savant, RTI, URC and many more. The drivers turn the docking station into a control device for these systems. The iPad does not have to be present in the docking station to perform control. iRoom recently added drivers for Crestron Home and ELAN control systems.

While the in-wall touchDock is available in 3 sizes that accommodate different iPad models, iTop Tabletop and iTop OnWall feature an adjustable charging connector and accommodate all current iPad models with just one docking station.

iRoom’s docking stations protect the iPad from theft which is often a requirement for installations in public or semi-public spaces such as offices, bars, restaurants, and hotel lobbies. A 4-digit code is required to remove the iPad from the docking station. Installed in homes, the locking mechanism can simply be deactivated or used to prevent the kids from removing the iPad.

The Smart Power Management technology iRoom implemented, increases the iPad battery life, prevents overcharging and damage to the iPad’s battery. The docking station constantly communicates with the iPad. When the battery is fully charged it switches to power only the iPad electronics and screen but not the battery. Trickle charging maintains the battery charge.
