PHOENIX, April 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- OmniMount, a leading manufacturer of mounting solutions for the home, is now shipping a 3-piece accessory kit for Apple® iPad® devices which includes a case, wall mount and 3-in-1 adjustable stand to address smart home automation and device integration issues that homeowners face.
"The demand for smart homes is growing and so is the use of devices like the iPad to control lighting, shades, TVs and thermostats," said Zach Eyman, senior product manager for OmniMount. "Rather than locking a device in one position on the wall, users want their iPad to be mobile, moving from room to room, and usable for both home automation and entertainment—not just one or the other. OmniMount's three piece accessory kit provides exactly that solution."
The OmniMount case has a rubberized interior for tightly gripping the iPad and a hard shell exterior for a comfortable, tactile feel during handheld activities. The case helps protect the device and is designed to interface with the wall mount and 3-in-1 adjustable stand. Cutouts allow access to buttons, camera and charging, and the case can be used with the Apple Smart Cover®.
The 3-in-1 adjustable stand is designed with the utmost versatility and can be used one of three ways: on a surface, under a cabinet or on a wall, making it easy for homeowners to place multiple units throughout the home in a variety of configurations. The aluminum finish complements the Apple aesthetic.
The OmniMount wall mount can be mounted in one of two ways: on-wall or to a stand or mount with a VESA 100 pattern. The low profile design keeps the iPad close to the wall and is great for entryways and hallways.
"People are using iPads for everything from complete home automation to simple entertainment and OmniMount wanted to offer an accessory to make that kind of use and integration easier," continued Eyman. "Our solution addresses the functional needs of whole house integration in addition to the tactile wants and needs of the user."
Multiple mount options make an iPad easy to locate and keeps it off of surfaces, reducing the likelihood of damaging or losing the device and improves comfort and usability. The quick release magnet makes removing the iPad effortless, so a single device can be moved from one area to the next—wherever the need is—and never locked in one place.
Each accessory kit includes a case, mount and stand and comes in three versions for iPad Generations 2, 3 and 4, iPad Air™ and iPad mini™. The kits are available through OmniMount's distribution partners for U.S. MSRP $99.95.
