We are considering putting a Wii IWB in one of our classrooms but have one question.  AFAIK you need to press both buttons on the Wiimote each time the system starts up.
Firstly is this true, because we would like to mount out wiimote on the ceiling thinking this will reduce blind spots and shadows and also less likely to be 'adjusted' by passing students.

Having to prees buttons on it mounted to the ceiling would make life more difficult!

Anyone any experince of this issue?

Thanks in advance

Hi,

You can consider using a remote control with a power supply for the Wiimote.

With the Red Sync button on the Wiimote pressed continuously, when the Wiimote is powered on, the Wiimote will be in discovery mode and can be connected by SmoothConnect automatically.

Therefore, you can use the remote control to switch on the Wiimote when SmoothConnect is looking for the Wiimote.

This is used by most users who have the Wiimote fixed at the ceiling.

The device is sold by some of our resellers such as listed on http://www.smoothboard.net/resellers
