Available in the U.S. from Origin Acoustics, the European manufacturer iRoom‘s new surDock and surDock mini provide a choice of affordable, non-removable on-wall surface-mounting docking stations for iPads and iPad Minis.
Permanently charging iPads, the dock products are engineered for placement in convenient locations to enable homeowners to walk up to their iPads and use them as interface devices to use their various control systems.
Made from materials that include aluminum and glass, iRoom says the surDock is versatile enough to be used in both residential and commercial markets. The surDock features a modern industrial design, auto-charging and lock-in security functionality.
According to Origin and iRoom, the surDock products install within 10 minutes using a single-gang wall box, and they fit all iPad models except the 12.9-inch iPad Pro.
