CE Pro 100 Names Top Home Network Brands
The Pakedge brand continues to lead the home networks category, but Luxul keeps pace. Araknis leapfrogs Ruckus to slide into third.
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.
Arguably the most important category in home electronics these days, Home Networks is also one of the most competitive.
The Pakedge brand continues to lead the category, but Luxul keeps pace. Araknis leapfrogs Ruckus to slide into third.
Just missing the top five is custom system service provider Access Networks with 21 dealers.
Pakedge (Control4): 46
Luxul (Legrand): 39
