CE Pro 100 Names Top Intrusion/Fire Control Panel Brands
Honeywell leads the intrusion and fire control panel category followed by Interlogix, DSC, 2GIG and Leviton/HAI.
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.
Picking up nearly 50 percent more dealers from its 2016 totals, Honeywell leads the category followed by Interlogix, which is the old brand name that UTC resurrected.
Tyco brands DSC (third) and Qolsys, just outside the top five, showed solid support.
