Anyone yearning for a nice looking and highly functional wall mount for
their iPad particularly to use in Smart Home Automation and multi-room
audio style systems need look no further.
Nous House sells three
very good products that address most uses and requirements for an iPad
wall mount which also provide a mix of target applications between
low-cost and prestige.
1. The Wallee iPad Mount and Stand
Wallee is an exceptional value on-wall (and free standing) mounting
product, with a great looking and amazingly functional design for its
low (A genuine bargain) cost and is made by a company in Melbourne which
is a nice positive.
It is an On-Wall mounting system using
innovative disks that are inexpensive to locate in several useful
positions around your house where you may want to use your iPad. The
Wallee retails at $59.95 (with two mounting disks)
A minimalist's delight that just looks cool and will appeal to a wide audience based on it's great price.
2. The iPort CM-IW2000 Control Flush In-Wall Mount for iPad & iPad 2 retails at $799
lot of people buy the iPort CM-IW2000 as a permanent controller to act
as a home automation 'touch screen' or audio control centre for their
iTunes library etc. At the price you can actually buy the mount and a
brand new iPad 2 to go into it for less than many proprietary automation
touch screen solutions.
This dock is designed to be a more
permanent or semi-permanent solution, not a dock to be putting an iPad
into and out of. The iPort CM-IW2000 Control Mount provides continuous
charging of the iPad and connection to the locally available WiFi. As
this is an in-wall installed product with power it is best installed by
your local custom installer.
3. iRoom 'Ejectable' iDock In-wall mounting dock for iPad & iPad 2.
iRoom iDock unit is a prestige / luxury or boardroom market device made
to compete with proprietary touch screen solutions such as those from

have it charge up ready to take to work the next day. Or possibly to use
in a boardroom for a presentation device etc (Requires other
There are models that mount the iPad
vertically or horizontally as you prefer, or in a wall or on a desktop,
and they have a slick motorised ejection mechanism much akin to the high
end tape decks of old. The unit has an attractive in-wall surround that
is available in white, black or silver (aluminium) and looks good in
the wall even when the iPad is out of the unit. As this is an in-wall
installed product with power it is best installed by your local custom
Retail price is POA and depends on model but is more
than an iPort and an iPad together, but as it competes in the prestige
and corporate markets the price is not unreasonable given the form and
So as you have read, each of these three iPad wall
mounting docks have a separate best or recommended purpose and come in a
range of prices depending on features, mounting style and finish. There
are also further wall mount products out in the market that may better
suit your needs like the iBracket, iPad Capsule and iPad Frame.
hope this info helps you find what you are looking for in an iPad wall
mount and to decide which may be best for your particular requirements.
