New Design-Friendly Wall and Ceiling Mounts from Wall-Smart Debut During IBSx 2021

Home builders, architects, designers, integrators, and consumers will appreciate Wall-Smart’s new lineup of flush mounts that seamlessly & stylishly recess devices into walls and ceilings.

BUFFALO, NY (February 9, 2021)Wall-Smart, the leader in the design and manufacture of innovative mounting hardware that conceals technology products within wall and ceiling surfaces, will showcase several new additions to its wide range of products at the International Builders’ Show’s virtual experience, taking place online February 9-12, 2021. 

Though this is the company’s first time exhibiting at IBSx, Wall-Smart is a long-standing and highly-regarded brand in the custom audio-visual marketplace and the recipient of a number of prestigious awards. Wall-Smart’s mounting solutions provide builders, architects, designers, technology integrators, and their clientele a way to seamlessly integrate popular technologies such as tablets, touchscreens, light switches, voice assistants, security cameras, and networking equipment into new construction and retrofit projects in an aesthetically pleasing manner using standard construction techniques.  

“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 developed. We think every home should be as beautiful as it is smart, and our new solutions give builders, architects, designers, technology integrators, and their clientele even more ways to achieve this objective with ease and simplicity.”

New Mounts Customized for Seven Leading Home Tech Manufacturers

Each of Wall-Smart’s new wall and ceiling mounts is custom designed, engineered, and fabricated for a specific home tech product. This attention to detail ensures not only a seamless, completely flush appearance, but also optimal convenience of use and quality of performance. New to the Wall-Smart line are mounts for leading devices, including Control4 T4 touchscreens, Crestron 70 Series touchscreens, Savant Echo low-voltage keypad, Araknis Wi-Fi access points, IC Realtime IPMX-W40F and W20F security cameras, Honeywell 6290W home security keypad, Legrand Adorne light switch, Apple iPad Air4, and more.

Streamlined Security and Surveillance

According to the 2019 edition of NAHB’s study, What Home Buyers Really Want, 46 percent of recent and prospective home buyers want a security camera in their home. Historically, however, cameras have been difficult to hide without hindering their ability to capture video. A new mount from Wall-Smart drastically downplays the appearance of IPMX-W40F and IPMX-W20F security cameras from IC Realtime without any impact on performance. The body of the camera tucks inside a specially designed Wall-Smart mount, leaving only the lens exposed and trimmed nicely with a faceplate. 

Creatively Constructed Home Control

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 has introduced new mounts for Control4 and Crestron touchscreens, accommodating sizes of 8 and 10 inches and 5, 7, and 10 inches, respectively. Versions for installation in new construction, retrofit, and solid-surface wall applications are available, as well as a retrofittable low-profile bezel in black, white, or unpainted so as to be custom-painted to 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. 

Seamless Switches

For construction and remodeling projects that call for low-voltage light switches, Wall-Smart expands its offerings with mounts for the Savant Echo keypad and Legrand Adorne keypad. Both have been designed for new construction, with a solid-surface option for the Savant Echo. 

Tucked Away Tablets

Lastly, Wall-Smart debuts new construction and retrofit mounting options for the Apple iPad Air4 tablet. Because tablets are meant for portability, this mount boasts a quick-release feature and built-in POE to USB converter to keep it fully charged.

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. And should a device require maintenance, repair, or replacement, it can be easily removed from the mount.

Designed to recess voice assistants, tablets, touchscreens, light switches, security cameras, networking gear, and other devices flush with wall and ceiling surfaces, Wall-Smart mounts deliver aesthetically-friendly smart home tech-concealment solutions.

BUFFALO, NY (February 9, 2021)Wall-Smart is a leading brand that designs and manufactures innovative mounting hardware concealing common household electronics within wall and ceiling surfaces. The company will showcase its wide range of products at the International Builders’ Show virtual experience, taking place online February 9-12, 2021.

Eliminate ‘Wall Acne’ for Smooth Wall and Ceiling Surfaces

Whether it’s a thermostat, light switch, iPad, surveillance camera, Wi-Fi access point, or control touchscreen, for instance, 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, implementing new installation processes, 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 based 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 allows builders, architects, and designers to achieve this objective with ease and simplicity.”

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 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, paintable or material-matchable bezel, the mounts enable technology to become a seamless part of the surface, significantly minimizing its visual impact on the home environment. Retrofittable white and black finished bezels are available, too.

Available for new construction, retrofit, and solid-surface applications, 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 for any technology that’s specified for the residence, further simplifying the deployment process. And 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, assuring that the device is always 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, for instance. As such, we’re able to give our clients a seamless look that exceeds their expectations.”

Case Study: Wall-Smart Facilitates a Technology Disappearing Act in 7,500-Square-Foot Custom Home

Case Study: Wall-Smart Facilitates a Technology Disappearing Act in 7,500-Square-Foot Custom Home

Innovative mounts from Wall-Smart recess 13 voice assistants, 4 thermostats, and 7 touchpanels flush with stone and stucco surfaces, rendering the technology nearly imperceptible. 

Technology can dramatically enhance home environments, adding convenience, comfort, and connectivity. But it can also raise havoc with design and architecture. At least that’s what the custom builders at Boca Raton-based Compson Homes thought. This belief was quickly dispelled, however, by an innovative line of mounting hardware from Wall-Smart. Introduced to Compson Homes superintendent John Collins by the low-voltage contractors at TYM Home Technology Design at the onset of a recent project, the mounts turned what could have been a new home overwhelmed by unsightly smart devices into a thing of unparalleled beauty. 

Tasteful Application of Technology 

Having integrated a wide variety of systems into hundreds of luxury homes, TYM was well aware of builders’ concerns over the impact of tech on the home’s architecture and interior design. The possibility for a clash definitely existed in this home, as the owners had requested a huge array of smart home features: color-changing circadian lighting, more than a dozen voice assistants, automated window shades, and plenty of touchscreens and keypads to manage it all. The clincher: None of the technology could detract from the clean, modern decor.  

 

TYM suggested using Wall-Smart mounts to downplay the appearance of the devices. Recessed into the simple, easy-to-install wall and ceiling mounts, the 13 voice assistants from Josh.ai, plus seven touchpanels and four thermostats from Savant sit flush with the home’s solid stone and stucco surfaces. “The Wall-Smart mounts make these devices look like a seamless part of the walls and ceilings, barely imperceptible yet easily accessible to the homeowners,” says TYM Vice President Greg Montgomery. “The beauty of the home was preserved without adding construction or design complexities to the workflow.” 

Differentiation of Home Design

The remarkable result, thanks in part to the clever and covert implementation of technology, is a visually stunning and smart residence tailored perfectly to the tastes of its owners. They have the best of both worlds—technology that enhances their lifestyle and a design that is drop-dead gorgeous. What began somewhat as an experiment to obscure technology turned into a legitimate smart home solution for Compson Homes.
