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.


After years of stagnation, the highly profitable but underutilized Central Vacuum category experienced some growth in the percentage of CE Pro 100 dealers installing these systems.

Leading the category for the second year in a row is H-P and its brands. BEAM Electrolux, Honeywell, Nutone and Hide-A-Hose follow.
