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.
Following up on its takeover of the IR Distribution category in 2016, Binary, SnapAV’s brand, maintains its position.
Making a big leap upward, Control4 triples the amount of CE Pro 100 dealers using its products from the prior year. Crestron also jumps into the top five.
Binary (SnapAV): 36
Key Digital: 5
Niles Audio: 5
Origin Acoustics: 3
