5 BEST Household Enhancements and Installation Accessories of 2017

Arris, Clare Controls, GoVision, Metra Home Theater, NEAR and SureCall win in CE Pro BEST Awards Household Enhancements & Installation Accessories category.


The CE Pro BEST Awards winners of 2017 were announced in September, but that was a sweeping announcment. Brands like Arris, Clare Controls, GoVision, Metra Home Theater, NEAR and SureCall all won in the Household Enhancements and Installation Accessories category this year, and we think they deserve some personalized recognition for the achievement.

SureCall, a brand noted for its commerical market applications, recently spoke with CE Pro's Jason Knott on how installers can earn recurring revenue using products like the one below. Meanwhile, for Metra Home Theater, this is the second CE Pro BEST Award it has won in two years.

The same is true for Arris, NEAR, and SureCall, each of which also won awards last year.

“The BEST Awards offer an incredible glimpse into the future for the entire residential AV 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 CE Pro BEST Awards. These entries truly represent the cutting edge of technology.”

This year's 179 entries were judged on innovation, functionality, competitive advantages and benefits to the installer by a dozen credible industry leaders, along with a panel consisting of CE Pro editors and staff.
