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.
The top two wireless companies’ numbers remain roughly the same as the previous year.
Sonos takes the winning spot by far. Making a big jump into the top five is Control4. Bose doubles its dealer share from the previous year and Apple triples its dealer representation to enter the leading five.
