The CE Pro 100 is a list of the highest revenue custom installation companies compiled each year (check out the list here). Integrators that made the list gave us an inside scoop on what manufacturers and brands they turn to again and again.

In this CE Pro 100 brand analysis series, senior editor Bob Archer delivers an in-depth look at the most frequently used manufacturers in nearly 50 product categories. The numbers associated with each manufacturer reflect the number of CE Pro 100 dealers using that brand.

While the number of total vendors in this category remains about the same as in 2015, the gap between the top two brands — annual leader Lutron and Control4 — and the rest of the list has begun to widen.
