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.
Fueled by the continual refinement of its OvrC platform, SnapAV is the new Remote Managed Services category leader.
Making up the rest of the top five brands, Ihiji, Pakedge, BlueBolt and Alarm.com each respectively saw significant additions.
Dealers notably consider power management as a part of this category mix.
OvrC (SnapAV): 49
Pakedge (Control4): 30
