Savant Systems (http://www.savantsystems.com) has introduced three new iOS device docks that should make iDevice users happy. The line-up include the IDC-100L in-wall wireless charging dock for the 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 smaller tablet. 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.
