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.
For the past couple of years the security camera category has remained stable, but this year beyond perennial leader IC Realtime and Wirepath’s familiar positioning, there has been change.
Lilin and Vivotek fall out of the top five, with Alarm.com and Hikvision taking their places. The Cameras category saw 35 manufacturers mentioned, and for the sixth straight year IC Realtime leads the way.
IC Realtime: 51
Wirepath (SnapAV): 49
Speco Technologies: 7
Digital Watchdog Flir: 5
Visualint (SnapAV): 4
Channel Vision: 1
Clinton Electronics: 1
Gen IV: 1
HDX Systems: 1
TS Microtech: 1
