Savant Systems, LLC has introduced three new iOS device docks including the IDC-100L in-wall wireless charging dock for the Apple iPad mini with Lightning connector.
Savant is the first control and automation company in the CEDIA integration channel to supply an in-wall dock for the iPad mini. Savant is also now offering the iPad Lightning dock (IDC-200L) and 5th generation iPod dock (IDC-T00L). These new offerings are the first in a growing family of Lightning-compatible docks that will include desktop and in-wall wired versions for high-security enterprise applications.
Savant’s new in-wall dock (IDC-100L) transforms the iPad mini into a versatile and cost-effective WiFi-connected touch interface option for any Savant control system.
The three new Lightning docks consist of a mounting plate and back-box along with low-profile, magnetically attached bezels that can be ordered to match any decor. The iOS device is powered via the dock, and its touch screen can then be used for wireless navigation and control of Savant’s residential and commercial automation and control solutions.
The new docks have been specifically designed to secure each iOS device in place as a dedicated interface with a locking fastener—the iPad mini, iPad or iPod touch® becomes a fixed docking solution and is not intended to be removed.
“The iPad mini has been widely adopted as a powerful user interface solution by Savant’s network of integrators as well as by end users,” said Jim Carroll, executive vice president of corporate strategy and business development at Savant. “Savant is pleased to deliver a docking solution for the iPad mini and other Lightning-compatible iOS devices to serve our customers.”
All three Lightning docks are available now from Savant.
