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 companies’ numbers are similar to 2016’s with just a slight gain for both Control4 and Crestron.
Savant improved by approximately 15 percent to cement its position as the third-most-used brand.
The real news is the emergence of Alarm.com and Lutron beyond their respective security and lighting/shading specialties.
