Celebrating the most noteworthy new products and technologies of 2018, CE Pro is pleased to announce the winners of this year's CE Pro BEST (Best Electronics Systems Technologies) Awards.

"The BEST Awards offer an incredible glimpse into the future for the entire residential integration industry," says Jason Knott, editor-in-chief, CE Pro.

"Some of the products and technologies that integrators now consider mainstays to their businesses made their first appearance in the market via the BEST Awards. These entries truly represent the cutting edge of technology."

All entries were judged on innovation, functionality, competitive advantages and benefits to the installer by a dozen credible industry leaders, along with the editors of CE Pro.

CE Pro is honoring the BEST Award winners tonight at a special presentation taking place on the Smart Stage in Hall A. All are welcome. The ceremony begins at 5:00 PST.

Winners’ products and technologies, as well as all entries, will be featured in the November issue of CE Pro magazine.
