This isn't a HE question per se...but pretty certain someone might have an idea.
I recently bought a couple of Echo Show tablets? on prime day. I'd like to mount them on...rather in the wall.
I was recently at a friends house and he had one mounted on the wall...though the power was a little sketchy. He had the adapter plugged into an extension cord...and the extension cord hard wired to an outlet. ...all in the wall cavity. Cant help but think this won't pass code.
I know with a standard tablet - there are options for recessing a proper outlet behind the mount and simply plug the power adapter in and hang the tablet mount over the outlet.....nothing in the wall so no code violation. The echo show however is probably 3.5" deep...so when mounted..you need to cut the drywall to allow the device to recess...meaning you lose that opportunity to recess an outlet behind it.
I was thinking POE. I have access to power from a nearby outlet. I was thinking i could fish a wire to a re work construction box and install some type of 120v AC to 12v DC adapter for the POE. But does anyone know of a POE injector i can wire directly to 120?
On the other side - i'd have to have the POE adapter to a 12v adapter tip ( old school pin adapter) ...im evening wondering if the POE adapter and adapter cable are in wall rated.
If anyone knows of a in wall power converter i can leave in the wall cavity..that'd be great...or even a 12v DC adapter than can fit in an electrical box would work too.
Appreciate any thoughts
