Thread: iPhone Home

  1. #1
    Default iPhone Home
    I wanted an easy way (relatively easy anyway) to play the iPhone in my home, and have the phone controls accessed from a main room.
    I had wired the home for stereo, etc. a number of years ago, and most of the wiring was in place. The stereo/home theater stuff is in the lower level, and there are speakers in the living room. I use a remote control to switch between CD, FM, Aux (TV), and volume, etc. from the kitchen/living room.

    I modified a standard iPod dock base for the iPhone, and mounted it on a wood base. I added in a ground connection from pin 11 of the dock connector, so that the iPhone will output audio and this also triggers the 'Accessory' mode of the iPhone.
    I had run a volume control and cables up the backside of this wall partioner. I opened it, and was able to fish a set of cables up from the lower level where the preamp and controls are. I connected these to the iPhone dock connector, and also incorporated a switch. This switch and relay bypasses the FM signal into the pre-amp for he iPhone output. The base also will charge the iPhone. Sound quality is excellent, form the line-out section of the iPhone. This port will also work with a dock-connector iPod.
    It works well, and I can play the iTunes section of the phone, plus the radio application of the iPhone. Also, when the phone rings, I can hear it thru the amplified output, and it plays thru the speakers in the house.

    I haven't tried that, I simply pick up the phone off the cradle to answer it.
