Wall Mount Frame For Fire HD 10


#1

The only mount I can find for a Fire HD 10 is the Vidabox.

I’m looking for a picture frame type mount, not a cradle style.

I’d love to see some pictures of what others did with their Fire HD 10.

Have you checked the dashboard hardware thread:

There are some sold for stores, but they are probably a higher cost than you were looking for:

As Terry mentioned, most of the picture frame style wall mounts are custom made.

I use a FireWall mount made by Bob Strenger from one of the SmartThings Facebook user groups. Here’s a link to Bob’s post offering the mounts for sale, but it’s a closed group so you’d have to join to see the post or PM Bob directly:

Here’s a picture of the FireWall with a Fire HD 10 mounted on my wall running the SharpTools.io dashboard. I can upload more pics of the mount if you are interested…

More pictures would be great!

Is Bob on this community? I don’t have an account with Facebook so I can’t see his page.

I’m not sure if Bob is on the group. Based on the name listed on the account, maybe @SuperBob is the right guy?

Anyway, here are some pictures of the mount from the sides so you can see the depth a bit. I think Bob has made a few flush mount recessed mounts, but that would probably be a custom request for him.

And here’s the custom flat USB cable that comes with the FireWall Bob Mount:

And for comparison, here’s what a Fire HD 8 in a Bob mount looks like next to a Wink Relay

…sorry, I didn’t have any bananas on hand at the time. :stuck_out_tongue:

@tuffloud1 it looks like the FireWall by Bob is available on eBay too. Here’s a link:

Thanks a lot for all your help!

Did you install a recessed power outlet behind? I am wanting to play with how to mount this cleanly with power and also keeping in mind future proofing for tablet form factor changes. Looking to possibly use magnets to hold the mount to a recessed box.

There was a cabinet on the other side of the wall with power in it, so I was able to run power through that.

Hi
Anywhere in the uk that sells or makes these?
thanks


#15

Seems Bob’s ebay listing has ended and he’s has his profile set to not respond to questions. Anyone know where else something like that is available for an 8" Fire?

Sure!
