iPad kiosk mount
iPad kiosks have a never ending amount of applications, and they are being employed more and more by different businesses and organisations. Due to their nature, they are often found in areas open to the public.
What are the benefits of employing such systems?
In a single word; versatility. No longer does a whole new system have to be commissioned to meet the demands of different organisations. The same iPad kiosk can be employed in a retail environment or in a museum and so much more. The only difference is the applications which it runs. The huge reduction in costs and the opportunity it provides to interact with members of the public, make the system valuable in more ways than one. However, with the reputation iPads have gained for quality, it has made them a target for shoplifters and thieves. Early methods at prevention like security chords have proven, as a whole to be ineffective. Criminals quickly adopted simple cut and run techniques, or simply a hard ‘tug’ which makes the security quite inadequate, to say the least.
What is needed is a solution which ticks three major boxes, a system which complements the aesthetics of the beautifully made iPad, whilst at the same time keeping it safe and secure, and not interfering with the functionality.
Which is best?
In terms of security, the best system is one which uses an iPad kiosk mount that not only protects but deters. This is crucial, as electronic measures such a kill switches or remote wiping are only a form of last resort. If these have to be employed it is because the iPad has already been lost. The iPad kiosk mount is therefore the crucial aspect of the design; this is where system succeeds or fails. Gripzo have developed and innovative Gorilla Grip mount which can be incorporated into any number of kiosks or stands. The Gorilla Grip system offers everlasting security, whilst simultaneously ticking the other two boxes. In terms of functionality it offers a wide range of manoeuvrability, a total of 72 degrees in 4 positions, whilst also being detachable in just 3 seconds using the unique key. Aesthetically, it pleasantly complements the quality in design of the iPad.
The use of the key is part of the innovative design; without it, attempting to detach the iPad would take a whole tool set and superhuman strength. With it you can detach it in 3 seconds and lock it back in place in another 3!
