“We are extremely proud to be licensed by Apple for Made For iPad,” said Ari Supran, CEO of Dana Innovations, parent company of iPort, Sonance, and TRUFIG. “The evolution of Apple products into engaging user interfaces for an incredible range of Apps and for home automation control is a tremendous opportunity for our industry. iPort is providing electronic system contractors with profitable business solutions for integration of Apple products.”
The CM2000 allows an Apple iPad to be used as an in-wall touch panel, providing continuous charging of the iPad and connection via Wi-Fi.
The new product secures the iPad into the wall with a bezel and mounting frame, which is held magnetically to the metal wall box.
The iPad home button remains accessible while its power button is replicated on the outer edge of the CM2000 frame.
A power connection is made via Cat-5 cable running from the CM2000 through the wall to a single-gang power connection wall plate, which supports connection to the included power supply.
The CM2000 has a MSRP of $499.
