NEW IOGEAR BLUETOOTH DESKTOP DOCK SIMPLIFIES TYPING ACROSS DEVICES

Multi-taskers Can Alternate Desktop Keyboard Use With Tablets, Smartphones

FOOHILL RANCH, Calif. - May 06, 2013 - Busy professionals can enhance their wired desktop keyboards and mice to efficiently work across multiple devices with the new IOGEAR Bluetooth Desktop Dock launched today. The Bluetooth Desktop Dock connects with up to two Bluetooth-enabled devices to navigate documents and seamlessly type emails or respond to text messages with greater ease and precision than touching the screen


Easy to set up and affordably priced (MSRP $79.95), the Bluetooth Desktop Dock creates a linked wireless workspace compatible with the iPad®, iPhone®, Galaxy Tab™, Galaxy S3™ and other compatible tablets and smartphones. Preset key combinations, or hotkeys, allow easy switching between devices using a PC or Mac keyboard. New devices can be added or removed as needed, and the Bluetooth Desktop Dock will automatically recognize the changes. Some mobile operating systems do not support mouse function, only keyboards.

"Consumers' desktops are increasingly filled with multiple devices, and IOGEAR's Bluetooth Desktop Dock bridges the technology to simplify multi-tasking and improve the experience on mobile devices," IOGEAR CEO Jack Wang said. "The Bluetooth Desktop Dock is another example of IOGEAR's connectivity innovation and drive to solve consumer needs."

The built-in stand on the Bluetooth Desktop Dock holds a tablet or smartphone at an angle for easier viewing compared to laying the device flat on a table. The Bluetooth Desktop Dock is available online at www.iogear.com and through major distribution channels.

Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth

The new Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth replaces conventional keys with digital keys accessed through the Yale Digital Keys app for Android and iOS mobile devices, and through an app for the new Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch. The Yale app allows homeowners to unlock doors, send keys to others, control when others have access, get a message when someone enters, and revoke a digital key at any time. Unlocking the deadbolt couldn't be simpler, whether using the Samsung Gear S2 or a smartphone. With the new Samsung Gear S2, touch the watch app to activate the digital key, then touch the lock screen to unlock the deadbolt. With a smartphone, Yale's "Twist and Go" technology allows the user to hold the phone vertically when approaching the door, then twist it 90 degrees to unlock the deadbolt. Homeowners can also unlock the deadbolt using its capacitive touchscreen and a four- to eight-digit code.
