WALL-SMART makes touchscreens and voice assistants mount flush against the wall for a more elegant installation.

Technology manufacturers like WALL-SMART recognize the need to minimize the visual impact of electronic equipment. For just about every device that sits on a tabletop, the company offers a custom-designed and fabricated mount that tucks the tech flush or recessed within the wall or ceiling surface.
