TYM Home Technology Design recently used Wall-Smart mounts to downplay the appearance of smart devices – including 13 voice assistants from Josh.ai, plus seven touchpanels and four thermostats from Savant – in a new home built by Boca Raton, FL-based Compson Homes.
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 Compson Homes thought. This belief was quickly dispelled, however, by the mounting hardware from Wall-Smart.

Introduced to Compson Homes superintendent John Collins by the low-voltage contractors at TYM at the onset of their recent project, the mounts turned what could have been a new home overwhelmed by unsightly smart devices into a thing of unparalleled beauty.
Discretely Recessing 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.
Recessed into the simple, easy-to-install wall and ceiling mounts from Wall-Smart, 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,” said TYM Vice President Greg Montgomery. “The beauty of the home was preserved without adding construction or design complexities to the workflow.”
The 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.
