Right now they are redneck mounted with 3M velcro command strips and the power cable along the wall to the mains. It was a quick and dirty way of mounting them to see if I they would get enough use. Which they do. but the 4" screens are a limiting factor. The one on my kitchen wall will be replaced with an under cabinet tablet when I can find a good deal on one. The one in the master bathroom works well enough and as it also has a built in FM radio it is used as such and with Pandora for music.

BOFH, not sure what your spending limit is... but I've gotten all of mine as refurbs on Amazon.  I'm currently using Acers, and paid about $80 each.  They look and act brand new, and the tech is really good for a wall mounted tablet (screen, touch, memory, etc).  Just my two cents, but i found the cheaper no-name tablets just didn't look that great.

Yea I am just curious when running Autohomation HD what they look like the specialized purpose they serve (that room) I assume.

All 3 default to a page that has all door locks and the garage door status on it. Setup on an AuthomationHD favorites page. I can just fit 6 devices on the screen.

Nice...

I really need one with a longer cable to the back canter of my tablet  :'(

For those needing a QI receiver with a longer cord here is the one I bought.  It seems to work fine and it gets the coil much closer to the center of the tablet.

Sure.  The cable is about 2.5 inches to the beginning of the film.  Roughly 4 inches to the middle of the coil.  Total length from USB connector to the end of the receiver film is 5.5 inches.
