I own a Home Systems Company and we are drifting into the commercial world with systems that are controlled by iPads and are of course running into issues that I am hoping this forum can help with. One of our large commercial jobs (which is very cool) is a Student Housing Complex. We are controlling all the amenity spaces with iPads ( A/V, HVAC, Lighting, Fireplaces, etc). The Student Housing is like the Ritz of Student housing and includes a 40 seat theatre, video game room, cafe, etc. The ipads are installed in iPort inwall docks and used more or less as touchscreens. The spaces are controlled with an app but the issue we have is relating to password lock. We need to more or less stop the ability to put a password lock on the unit. We don't want to provide the students with the lock passcode as that allows them to basically go in and change it to something and then we have to reset the iPad and start all over ( yes they are troublemakers). Is there a way to stop the iPads from having the need for a passcode (disable or remove the function entirley) or is there a way where we can enter one and then never have it pop up?
Thanks in advance for any help!!
