CE Pro 100 Names Top Lighting Control Brands
Lutron and Control4 remain the top brands in lighting control, followed by Crestron, Vantage and Savant, which made slight gains.
CE Pro's annual Brand Analysis study surveys the top 100 highest-revenue residential integration firms, otherwise known as the CE Pro 100, to determine their preferred brands in the categories of audio, video, home automation, networking, lighting control, security and more.
In this category-by-category breakdown, senior editor Bob Archer delivers an in-depth look at the most frequently used manufacturers in 55 product categories. The numbers associated with each manufacturer reflect the number of CE Pro 100 dealers using that brand.
Lutron and Control4 remain the top brands, with the former adding to its advantage over the second and third spots. Vantage and Savant made slight gains.
Looking at the numbers for the control and automation categories, it appears the explosive growth in the market has slowed a little. This could be a lull before the storm as voice control gains momentum to fuel more automation solutions, including lighting control.
