Cable Management suggestions for the Lenovo Smart Frame

2020-10-14, 11:54 AM

I recently got a Lenovo Smart frame for testing, one of the first issues that I faced was where to put it and how to hide the cable. Please note, that even though I am a Lenovo employee, this is not an official solution or recommendation. This is my personal view and the process is based on my own experience dealing with cable management. All advice below is mine and mine alone.

 

In the age of wireless technology, I try to avoid cables showing around my house.

Since I have dry wall at home, luckily there are a few options on how to hide these cables in the wall.

You can find several wall plate kits or flatbed tv cable installation kits at hardware stores like Home Depot or Lowes or if you are in Europe places like OBI.

Here is a video of how the installation would be:

 

 

Below you can also find some suggestions of what can be used:

If you do not have a dry wall or do not want to drill holes on you wall, there are also plenty of cable management solutions. At any electronic store you can find some Cable management kits that would help you manage the cable.

This does create a new issue though as the cable that comes packed with the frame is not extremely long, therefore it is possible to get an extension cable for it.

 

Here are some suggestions:

Hope this information helps all of you frame enthusiasts!
