What products do the biggest smart-home integrators install? In our annual Brand Analysis study, we surveyed the top 100 highest-revenue residential integration firms, those who made our annual CE Pro 100 list, to determine their preferred brands in the categories of audio, video, home automation, networking, lighting control, security and more.

Here's how it works.

CE Pro 100 integrators named the brands they support for each product category over the past year. Multiple brands were allowed. The No. 1 brand is the one that is mentioned by the most companies. It may not be their most-used brand overall, but the No. 1 pick is used at least to some degree by the most dealers on the CE Pro 100 list.

Many perennial favorites such as Control4, SnapAV, Sonance, Sony, Lutron, Sonos and Middle Atlantic continue to dominate their respective categories as well.

We did, however, see some newcomers in the top brand positions, including Honeywell for security and Future Automation for motorized lifts. The brands that overtook others for top brand in the category are marked below.

And stay tuned. Throughout the month of June, CE Pro will present each of the categories in greater detail, including the top five brands in each category as well as a list of every brand mentioned in a given category.
