What products do the biggest home-technology integrators install? CE Pro surveys the top 100 highest-revenue residential integration firms each year to determine their preferred brands in the categories of audio, video, home automation, networking, lighting controls and more.

Other than the software category, these are some of the newest categories CE Pro has begun to track.

Long-time leader D-Tools continues to dominate the software market, but there were new companies to enter the field and their presence did show up in the numbers.

The other categories are new and it will be interesting to see how they develop in terms of numbers over the next several years.

I guess it can be an alternative but definitely a proposal specific add on to run on top of D-Tools.

I’m surprised you didn’t mention Jetbuilt.com as a D-Tools alternative.
