WALL-SMART Joins NKBA Global Connect Subscription Program

WALL-SMART Joins NKBA Global Connect Subscription Program

With the goal of helping kitchen and bath designers better blend technology into design, WALL-SMART is added to NKBA Global Connect Program. 

HACKETTSTOWN, NJ — (April 21, 2022) — The National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA), representing nearly 50,000  North American kitchen and bath industry professionals and owners of the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS), announces its newest NKBA Global Connect Program Member: WALL-SMART, a provider uniquely designed and manufactured mounts that recess home tech devices flush or completely hidden within wall and ceiling surfaces.

WALL-SMART was established in 2013, with a vision to change the way walls and ceilings look and function. With the rise in home technology, the brand recognized a need for solutions that were both functional and aesthetically pleasing.

WALL-SMART is a privately owned company led by co-founders with vast experience in start-ups and big corporations. The first WALL-SMART wall mounts were designed to recess devices flush with drywall surfaces during construction and with the option to paint the trim and faceplate in a matching or complementary color. To this core line, WALL-SMART engineered versions for installations within solid surfaces, including wood, metal, glass, and more. In early 2015, born from in-the-field demand, WALL-SMART rounded out its portfolio with mounts for retrofit applications.

“While the footprints of most smart home devices have become smaller and sleeker, they can still clash with the design and architecture of a home,” said Galia Ben-Dor, WALL-SMART Co-CEO and Founder. “WALL-SMART solves this issue by enabling popular technologies like light switches, Wi-Fi access points, voice assistants, thermostats, security cameras, and more to be recessed into or sit flush with wall and ceiling surfaces.”

WALL-SMART’s solutions introduce a unique approach to home tech installation, making it ideally suited for progressive, innovative, and early-adopter design/build/home tech integration markets in North America. WALL-SMART deliberately combines into its mounting hardware technological and aesthetic features that conform to the design/build standards of North America. WALL-SMART is a natural fit in kitchens and baths where solid surfaces dominate. Resting flush with backsplashes, cabinetry, kitchen island pedestals, and even vanity mirrors, keypads, touchscreens, switches, and outlets look like a seamless part of the surface rather than an afterthought that sticks out like a sore thumb.

As WALL-SMART’s portfolio of products continues to grow more diverse and versatile so do its benefits to kitchens and bath designers.

“Our short-term goal is building a qualified base of designers and architects who regularly spec WALL-SMART products in their upcoming and newly finished projects. Our long-term goal is becoming a standard feature in luxury homes, in which installations of all home technology will be flush or recess mounted,” shared Ben-Dor. “We are confident in our ability to help kitchen and bath professionals blend technology beautifully into their designs and are open to any and all feedback to develop new solutions for any market need.”

The NKBA Global Connect Subscription program offers a robust package of resources and connections to help international brands enter the North American kitchen and bath marketplace. Access to industry experts, proprietary NKBA market data, North American design and construction insights, VIP events and networking programs give NKBA Global Connect Subscribers a unique view into the market before they commit to launch. For more information on NKBA Global Connect please contact globalconnect@nkba.org.

“We are so pleased to welcome WALL-SMART into the NKBA Global Connect program,” said Suzie Williford, EVP and Chief Strategy Officer of NKBA. “We have built an outstanding program, designed to help marketers navigate the vast North American kitchen and bath market, and it’s gratifying to see it embraced.”

WALL-SMART Showcases Custom Mounts that Minimize the Visual Impact of Smart Home Devices

WALL-SMART Helps Builders, Architects, and Designers Blend Technology Easily and Beautifully into Homes

WALL-SMART’s broad line of versatile, design-friendly wall mounts renders touchscreens, tablets, security cameras, voice assistants, lighting keypads, Wi-Fi access points, and other popular home tech products less conspicuous. 

ORLANDO, FLORIDA (February 7, 2022)WALL-SMART continues to make smart homes more beautiful through ongoing and evolving partnerships with leading manufacturers of popular home technology products. Through this collaboration with leading product manufacturers and a deep understanding of the needs of the design/build industry, WALL-SMART designs, fabricates, and manufacturers a range of eye-pleasing and installation-friendly wall- and ceiling-mount solutions that dramatically minimize the appearance of touchscreens, tablets, lighting keypads, voice assistants, security cameras, Wi-Fi access points, and more. 

 This innovative approach to technology integration earns WALL-SMART a spot in the IBS New Product Zone. WALL-SMART is one of 75 manufacturers selected to showcase its cutting-edge products in this special exhibit. IBS 2022 attendees can see WALL-SMART’s revolutionary flush mount for Wi-Fi access points at the New Product Zone, as well as at booth W5779, where it joins many other WALL-SMART mounting solutions, ranging from receptacles and lighting keypads recessed flush with glass, granite, or solid wood surfaces to voice assistants and touchscreens recessed seamlessly within drywall. These IBS 2022 exhibits demonstrate to builders, architects, and designers the remarkable beauty and versatility WALL-SMART flush mounts bring to new and existing homes. 

Eliminate ‘Wall Acne’ for Smooth Wall and Ceiling Surfaces

Whether it’s a thermostat, light switch, iPad, security camera, Wi-Fi access point, or control touchscreen, technology plays an increasingly important role in the functionality and enjoyment of today’s homes. Unfortunately, the same amenities that deliver convenience, comfort, and efficiency can clash with a home’s architectural and interior style. Developed with this in mind, WALL-SMART’s easy-to-install mounting solutions provide the construction, remodeling, and design community with an effective way to deliver modern conveniences to their customers without sacrificing aesthetics, practicing new installation techniques, or extending project timelines.  

“Technology has become a necessity for most households, but this doesn’t mean the home environment must suffer from ‘wall and ceiling acne’”, says WALL-SMART Co-CEO and Founder Galia Ben-Dor. “This is the philosophy on which WALL-SMART was conceived and bases the design of every product we develop. We think every home should be as beautiful as it is smart, and our vast portfolio of concealment solutions enable builders, architects, and designers to achieve this objective with ease and simplicity.”

Build, Design, and Sell Smart Homes with Style 

With nearly a decade of experience serving the needs of home technology integrators, WALL-SMART extends these same benefits to the construction and design industry. Customized for some of the world’s leading home technology manufacturers, including Apple, Honeywell, Lutron, Crestron, Control4, and Savant, WALL-SMART’s mounts help builders, specifiers, contractors, and designers differentiate themselves by offering best-in-class technology that blends beautifully with the home environment. WALL-SMART’s ever-expanding portfolio of concealment solutions is continually refined and updated as new electronic products are introduced, ensuring that no matter how technology progresses, it can be seamlessly integrated into homes new and old.  

Installation Follows Standard Construction Procedures

Comprising moisture-resistant, chemically treated MDF, WALL-SMART’s design-forward mounts install similar to that of any drywall application. The mounts recess into standard stud bays and ceiling joists for a flush appearance. Finished with drywall or a low-profile, black, white, paintable, or custom material-matchable bezel, the mounts enable technology to become a seamless part of the surface

In addition to retrofittable mounts designed for drywall installation, WALL-SMART offers mounts made for new construction that can be recessed within virtually any surface, including drywall, plaster, concrete, brick, wood, marble, glass, and metal. Drywall installation in new construction follows standard Level 4 drywall procedures. Retrofit installation typically takes less than five minutes and does not require a drywall expert. The mounts can be ordered directly from WALL-SMART for any technology that’s specified for the residence, further simplifying the deployment process. Should a device require maintenance, repair, or replacement, it can be easily removed from the mount. 

A Winning Combination of Form and Function

WALL-SMART customizes each mount for a perfect fit and optimal performance of a specific smart home device. Never does a mount impede the audio quality of concealed speakers or the reception of verbal commands to flush-mounted voice assistants, for example. For mounts designed for tablets, WALL-SMART builds in a POE to USB converter to keep the device fully charged.

“WALL-SMART mounts enable us to offer something completely unique to our customers and home builder partners—high-performance smart home systems that disappear into the woodwork,” says Greg Montgomery, VP Technical Operations at TYM Home Technology Design, of Herriman, Utah. “Thanks to the wide variety of mounting options, we’ve been able to install touchscreens, voice assistants, and light switches in the toughest of surfaces, like a stone backsplash. As such, we’re able to give our clients a seamless look that exceeds their expectations.”

WALL-SMART Design-Friendly Wall Mounts Make Home Technology Disappear at IBS 2022

WALL-SMART Design-Friendly Wall Mounts Make Home Technology Disappear at IBS 2022

IBS 2022 (International Builders Show) Booth W5779

At IBS 2022, WALL-SMART shows broad range of flush wall mounts that help home builders, architects, designers, and systems integrators minimize the appearance of popular home technologies. 

ORLANDO, FLORIDA (February 7, 2022)WALL-SMART, displaying at the International Builders Show (IBS 2022), understands the challenges builders, architects, designers, and systems integrators face when adding popular technologies like touchscreens, tablets, voice assistants, security cameras, Wi-Fi access points, and more into homes. Achieving an aesthetically pleasing fit and finish can be difficult. Rather than let smart home technology impede on the home aesthetic, WALL-SMART offers to the build/design community a range of custom-designed and -manufactured mounting hardware that recesses devices flush with wall and ceiling surfaces. Developed for new construction and retrofit applications, the innovative wall and ceiling mounts turn home tech devices into natural parts of wall or ceiling surfaces, rendering them dramatically less conspicuous. Visit WALL-SMART in booth W5779 at IBS 2022. 

“Technology has become a necessity for most households, but that doesn’t mean the home environment must suffer from ‘wall and ceiling acne’,” says WALL-SMART Co-CEO and Founder Galia Ben-Dor. “This is the philosophy on which WALL-SMART was conceived and bases the design of every product we develop. We think every home should be as beautiful as it is smart, and our mounting solutions give builders, architects, designers, technology integrators, and their clientele even more ways to achieve this objective with ease and simplicity.”

WALL-SMART showcases at IBS 2022, in booth W5779, a variety of design-friendly flush wall mounts from its portfolio, including mounts for a consumer-favorite, soundbar speakers from Sonos, as well as a mount for the newest tablet from Apple, the iPad Mini 6. These new products join WALL-SMART’s diverse family of discreet mounting solutions, customized and crafted for effective and simple installation using standard construction techniques in drywall, as well marble, glass, wood, concrete, and other solid surfaces. 

Each of WALL-SMART’s wall and ceiling mounts is custom-designed, -engineered, and fabricated with a specific home tech product in mind. This attention to detail ensures not only a seamless, completely flush appearance but also optimal convenience of use and quality of performance. Included in the WALL-SMART line are mounts for best-in-brand devices, including Sonos Beam and Arc soundbars, Apple iPad tablets, Lutron lighting keypads, Control4 touchscreens and keypads, Crestron touchscreens and keypads, Savant low-voltage keypads, Araknis Wi-Fi access points, IC Realtime security cameras, Honeywell home security keypads, Legrand light switches, and more.

WALL-SMART Hides Security and Surveillance Cameras
A top-requested technology of consumers is a security camera. Unfortunately, this increasingly common household device can be difficult to hide without hindering its ability to capture video. Mounts from WALL-SMART solve this problem by drastically downplaying the appearance of IPMX-W40F and IPMX-W20F security cameras from IC Realtime without any impact on their ability to detect movement and capture real-time video. The body of the camera tucks inside WALL-SMART’s specially designed mount, leaving only the lens exposed and trimmed attractively with a faceplate. 

WALL-SMART Enables Seamless Installation of Light Switches and Electrical Receptacles
WALL-SMART mounts recess light switches and electrical receptacles seamlessly within wall surfaces, providing the build/design community with a more attractive solution than conventional surface-mounted options. Available for switches and receptacles from leading manufacturers, including Lutron, Legrand, Control4, and Savant are mounts for new construction, retrofit, and solid-surface installation. 

WALL-SMART Clears Voice Assistants from Countertops and Furniture
In 2020, there were 4.2 billion digital voice assistants used in devices throughout the world, according to research firm Statista. This number is expected to reach 8.4 billion units by 2024. WALL-SMART is doing its part to minimize the visual impact of voice assistants on home environments via custom mounting hardware that recesses the technology flush with wall surfaces. Thanks to WALL-SMART’s design-forward line of wall mounts, builders, designers, architects, and systems integrators can offer their customers an eye-pleasing and space-saving alternative to placing voice assistant devices on countertops and tabletops. 

WALL-SMART Delivers Discreet Installations of Sonos Soundbars
A recent addition to WALL-SMART’s portfolio is a line of flush wall mounts for Sonos’ popular Beam and Arc Soundbars. The mounts enable the soundbars to be recessed within wall surfaces, giving builders, architects, designers, and systems integrators an installation alternative to placing soundbars inside furniture or attaching them directly to displays. The mounts are available for retrofit applications, in black and white with acoustically transparent grille covers to match. They have been designed for quick and easy assembly and installation.

WALL-SMART Blends Apple iPad Tablets Into Home Designs
According to research firm Statista, as of February 2021, approximately 53% of adults in the U.S. owned at least one tablet, with Apple’s uber-popular iPad leading the way. Chances are, many of these iPads are used within homes. Rather than let tablets clutter countertops, WALL-SMART has developed custom wall mounts that recess Apple iPads, including the new iPad Mini 6, flush with wall surfaces. Builders, architects, designers, and systems integrators can now blend tablets beautifully into the home environment.  WALL-SMART’s mounts for Apple iPads are available for new construction and retrofit applications. 

WALL-SMART Conceals Wi-Fi Access Points Within Ceilings
Customized for a variety of leading-brand Wi-Fi access points, WALL-SMART’s innovative mounts take a device that would ordinarily protrude from the ceiling and recess it completely within the surface. Builders, architects, designers, and systems integrators can deliver their customers high-performance Wi-Fi 6 connectivity without compromising the aesthetics of the home environment. Without design limitations, access points can be located where they provide the strongest, fastest, most reliable Wi-Fi signals for optimal connectivity and a better customer experience. 

 

WALL-SMART Tames the Appearance of Home Control Touchscreens
Touchscreens are quickly becoming a mainstay in modern smart homes as a means of control, communication, and access to the Internet and video, like real-time images captured by security cameras. To grant homeowners quick and easy access to these features, touchscreens are best positioned in high-traffic areas. To minimize their appearance in areas like kitchens and foyers, WALL-SMART offers mounts for home control touchscreens from leading manufacturers, including Crestron, Control4, Elan, and Savant. Versions for installation in new construction, retrofit, and solid-surface applications are available, as well as retrofittable low-profile bezels in black, white, or unpainted so as to be custom-painted or material-matched to the adjacent surface. WALL-SMART bezels feature imperceptible perforations to enable clear, uninhibited audio transmission for intercom and voice control via the touchscreen. 

WALL-SMART Affords Quick and Easy Installation During and After Construction
Comprising moisture-resistant, chemically treated MDF, WALL-SMART’s design-forward mounts install similar to that of any drywall application. The mounts recess into standard stud bays and ceiling joists for a flush appearance. Finished with drywall or a low-profile, paintable bezel, the mounts enable technology to become a seamless part of the surface, significantly minimizing its visual impact on the home environment. 

WALL-SMART mounts can be used in any home construction or remodeling project, installed into virtually any surface, including drywall and plaster, as well as concrete, brick, wood, marble, glass, and metal. Installation in new construction follows standard Level 4 drywall procedures. Retrofit installation typically takes less than five minutes and does not require a drywall expert. The mounts can be ordered directly from WALL-SMART or from its partners for any technology that’s specified for the residence, further simplifying the deployment process. Should a device require maintenance, repair, or replacement, it can be easily removed from the mount.

WALL-SMART Launches New Wall Mounts for Sonos Soundbars 

WALL-SMART Launches New Wall Mounts for Sonos Soundbars 

WALL-SMART’s new flush wall mounts for Sonos soundbars minimize the appearance of audio technology in homes where cosmetics are just as important as sound quality. 

ORLANDO, FLORIDA (February 1, 2022) WALL-SMART, the leading manufacturer of innovative mounting hardware that conceals a wide variety of smart devices flush with wall and ceiling surfaces, debuts at IBS 2022, Booth W5779, Sonos Soundbar Wall Mounts, a new line of flush wall mounts for Sonos’ popular Beam and Arc Soundbars.

WALL-SMART Flush Mounts Bring Elegance to Luxury Smart Home Projects 

Wall-Smart Flush Mounts B

WALL-SMART Solid-Surface Mount recesses 7-inch Crestron touchscreen flush with walls made of black walnut

Creative Systems USA elevates the fit and finish of touch screen installations in custom homes, MDUs, and yachts by using WALL-SMART flush mounts.

If there’s one thing that rubs Harry Blanchard of Creative Systems USA the wrong way, it’s technology that looks as if it was “slapped” onto expensive wall materials. “It pains me to see homeowners spend a fortune on marble backsplashes or rare hardwood finishes only to the surfaces marred by white electrical outlets and surface-mounted screens,” Blanchard says.

Specialty mounting hardware that enables these and other home tech products to be recessed flush with wall and ceiling surfaces certainly helps create a more pleasing aesthetic, but according to Blanchard, WALL-SMART’s solutions take this effective strategy a step further. “WALL-SMART’s attention to detail in the design, engineering, and fabrication of its mounts make touchscreens appear to be a natural part of the wall, not an accessory that was added later,” he offers as an example. “They become not just a technological addition, but a design element that complements or enhances the fine finishes of a home.”

Camouflaging Cavities in Retrofit Projects
TVs aren’t the only technology that has shape-shifted from a squarish 4:3 aspect ratio to a 16:9 widescreen format. Touchscreens have, too. For many of Blanchard’s retrofit projects, this technological evolution has required yanking out old 4:3 touchscreens and fitting new 16:9 versions in their place. Blanchard facilitates the swap by widening the wall cavity, “not a problem,” he says, “but the open space that remains above or below the new touchscreen also needs to be contended with.” Here’s where WALL-SMART’s retrofit-friendly mounts “save the day.” The paintable bezel that applies easily around the perimeter of the WALL-SMART touchscreen mount completely covers the cavity, saving Creative Systems USA from needing to repair and/or color match older wall materials.

Wall-Smart Flush Mounts A

WALL-SMART New Construction Mount for 15-inch Crestron touchscreen

Minimizing Large Touchscreen Footprints
As touchscreens have grown rectangular in shape, they’ve also sized up significantly. And for good reason. These command centers of the smart home juggle many responsibilities, many of which users need to visually monitor and manage. It’s simply easier, more efficient, and intuitive to initiate lighting scenes, review and monitor the status of devices, and choose music from a large library of playlists when you can use a 22 -inch screen instead of a 10-inch screen. Unfortunately, it’s not as easy to minimize the visual impact of the bigger option, “unless it can be recessed flush with the wall surface,” Blanchard says. “I wouldn’t dream of surface-mounting a 2-inch-thick touchscreen in a luxury home.” Needless to say, WALL-SMART has become his go-to mount provider for Crestron’s 22-inch panels. 

Saving Space and Shoulders
Touchscreens are slim by design; still, even the slightest protrusion from the wall can make a big difference in small spaces. Take the Lady Rebecca, a luxury yacht Blanchard outfitted with a Crestron control system some years ago. No conventional surface-mount installation would suffice, here, as even a minor lip of touchscreen could have been easily clipped by the shoulders of passerby strolling the vessel’s narrow hallways. Nor would it be acceptable for touchscreens to blemish walls made of black walnut harvested from the owner’s farm. Blanchard mitigated both concerns by using WALL-SMART’s solid-surface mount for Crestron touchscreens to recess the technology flush with the wall surface.  

Wall-Smart Flush Mounts C

Securing Control Assets in Commercial Projects
iPads are one of the most familiar and pervasive of technologies, so it’s no wonder the administrators of an MDU development company wanted to use the device to control audio and video in its leasing offices and amenity areas. There was just one hitch in this plan—people could easily leave the iPad in a hard-to-find place or worse yet, walk off with the device. WALL-SMARTS’s flush mounts for iPads reduced the likelihood by providing a single stationary location to sequester the iPad. 

Customizing with Care
Luxury homes require a highly customized approach to the integration of technology—including the way in which the devices are installed. Creativity, craftsmanship, and an eye for design must be applied. It’s a philosophy that Creative Systems USA stands by and has built a successful business around. “WALL-SMART’s flush mounts for touchscreens help me convey to my customers that I care about the final product—not just how it operates but how it looks. We’ve been able to go the extra mile in terms of design for our customers by using WALL-SMART’ solution, and the stellar fit and finish that WALL-SMART mounts provide is the icing on the cake.”
