CE Pro 100 Names Top HVAC Control Brands

Leading the HVAC control category is Control4, closely followed by Crestron, Savant, Nest and Lutron.


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 gaining significant momentum the past couple of years, Nest’s climb to the top of the HVAC Control category has slowed. Leading the category is Control4, closely followed by Crestron, Savant, Nest and Lutron.

HVAC Control may be the most competitive category in the industry at the moment.
