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.

One of the largest, most universally used categories in the industry, Mounts shows about a 15 percent increase in usage over the previous year.

The top four companies in order from 2016 are unchanged. Future Automation cracks the top five for the first time.
