WITH ITS LINEUP of flush
mounts and discreet mounting
solutions for various
devices, Wall-Smart fit well
with the design/build crowd
that visited its booth at the
recent International Builders'
Show (IBS) 2022, held in
Orlando, Fla.
The Israeli company's IBS
2022 booth at the Orange
County Convention Center
showcased its new construction
and retrofittable
mounts, compatible with finishes
and surfaces including
drywall, glass, marble, wood,
concrete and more.
Installed products blanketing
the booth included
The new Wall-Smart
low-profile ceiling mounts

touchpanels, keypads, electrical
outlets, voice control
interfaces, light switches,
security cameras, wireless
access points and even smart
speakers. Yes, that latter
category has been addressed
by Wall-Smart thanks to a
new addition to the portfolio,
flush mounts for Sonos'
Beam and Arc soundbars.
The mounts are available
in black or white with
matching magnetic acoustically
transparent grille covers
so builders, integrators,
architects and designers
can attractively recess and
conceal a Sonos soundbar
instead of having it out in
the open on a mantel or
cabinet, having to attach it
directly to a display or hiding
it within furniture.
" We showed it to Sonos
and they really liked it, " says
Galia Ben-Dor, co-CEO of
Wall-Smart.
Another new low-profile
solution for IBS 2022,
Wall-Smart has developed
a mount for Apple's latest
Wall-Smart's solutions at IBS included touchpanels and
voice control device mounts, plus a new wireless access
point concealment with magnetic cover.
tablet, the iPad Mini 6.
Meanwhile, new products
for user interfaces and other
aforementioned devices
from custom industry
companies such as Crestron,
Control4 (Snap One), RTI,
URC, Lutron, Russound,
Legrand, Basalte and Josh.ai
filled the booth.
" Once there's a new solution
on the market, we strive
to be the first ones to have a
flush mount solution for it, "
notes Ben-Dor.
She outlined the company's
ability to work with new
construction and retrofit to
offer versatility in drywall
solutions, provide paintable
mounts that can blend
based on needs, and resolve
installations in other surfaces
thanks to cutting templates
they can offer carpenters.
In addition, visitors who
glanced up saw how WallSmart
created low- and
virtually no-profile solutions
for surveillance cameras and
wireless access points.
The new Wi-Fi access
point concealment solutions
facilitate greater flexibility
for integrators and builders
to incorporate those
products where they are
optimized for performance
without worrying about
creating eyesores for homeowners.
Furthermore, it can
help integrators when they
need to service or document
an install, Ben-Dor notes of
the product's origin.
" It came from the field, "
Ben-Dor says of the Wi-Fi
access point solution, shown
with Ruckus and Araknis
products at the IBS booth.
" A dealer said, 'I couldn't care
less about aesthetics, I have
an issue with the Wi-Fi access
points. Every time we have
a call, my technician spends
four hours just to find it because
they hide it in the attic
or in the basement. I don't
know where it is and I want
to save time - can you hide
it in the ceiling and make it
look like a speaker?' "
