WallWizard's App to Control Motorized TV Mounts is Off the Wall


WallWizard, a relative newcomer in the TV mount world, has introduced a software application that permits remote control operation of the brand's motorized mounts from Apple iPad, iPod, iPhone via Wi-Fi, and Smartphones via Bluetooth. WallWizard's Control System is a 2-piece solution that consists of the brand's proprietary ControlWand software app which consumers download from App stores for $9.99, and a Wi-Fi / Bluetooth accessory that is available from authorized dealers at a selling price of $119.99. According to Sales and Marketing VP Craig Matthews, WallWizard is the first brand to offer such an application. One of the special features is a Gyro Mode, where the motion of the motorized mount duplicates the motion of the handheld device without having to push any additional buttons. In the Auto Mode, the mount can detect whether the TV is On or Off, and move the mount Up, Down, Left or Right. In the Manual Mode, the user can control the motion of the mount by pressing on the appropriate direction arrow. In another example of innovation in the manual operation mounts, WallWizard's team of robotic engineers (the engineering is robotic, not the engineers) incorporate a cam mechanism that enables the TV to be swiveled or tilted using only a finger, creating less wear and tear on the TV and the viewer.
