CE Pro 100 Names Top Phone System/Intercom Brands
Panasonic still paces the phone system/intercom category, but its margin is shrinking as Control4 gains traction.
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.
For years Panasonic has dominated the Phone Systems/Intercom category, but its dominance is now being challenged.
Panasonic still paces the category, but its margin is shrinking through Control4’s addition of 14 dealers from its 2016 figures and Panasonic’s drop of 17.
