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.
Voice Control is a new Brand Analysis category for 2017.
Not surprisingly, Amazon’s Alexa dominates the market. Apple with its Siri platform is a distant second.
Perhaps most surprising is the showing of Google. Given the advertising and marketing push that Google is giving its Assistant platform and Home speaker, it will likely fare much better in the years to come.
Amazon Alexa: 55
Apple Siri: 11
Google Assistant: 5
Dish Network: 1
