The following items are included with the ClareHome Touchpanel.
Select an installation option.
Option 1 uses the included panel tabletop stand.
To desktop mount the panel:
1. Insert the kickstand to the rear of the panel. The stand pops into place, locking to the panel.
Note: There are 2 options for tabletop stand orientation. Each option results in a different viewing angle.
Orientation 1: Insert the stand into the panel with the tail facing down, creating a downward facing arc. This gives the panel a more forward-facing view, close to a 60° angle.
Orientation 2: Insert the stand into the panel with the tail facing upward, creating a curve upward. This gives the panel a more upward-facing view, close to a 30° angle.
2. Slide a stand grip onto each slot on the stand.
(Optional) To prevent the panel from sliding, attach the included non-slip base grips. Place one base grip on each corner of the panel.
3. Plug the included power supply into the rear of the Android panel.
4. Plug the opposite end of the power supply into an electrical outlet.
The tablet automatically powers up.
