CE Pro 100 Survey: Top Brands in Audio, Video, Home Automation, Networking, Security, More

Survey of CE Pro 100 top home-technology integrators reveals the most-specified brands in the connected home, with standouts including Control4, SnapAV, Samsung, Lutron, Interlogix, Sonos and Sony.


What products do the biggest home-technology integrators install? CE Pro, the leading trade publication for installation pros, surveys the top 100 highest-revenue residential integration firms each year to determine their preferred brands in the categories of audio, video, home automation, networking, lighting controls and more.

Below are the #1 brands for each of the categories covered this year. 

Here's how it works: CE Pro 100 integrators named the brands they support for each product category for the year (2015). Multiple brands were allowed. The #1 brand is the one that is mentioned by the most companies. It may not be their most-used brand overall, but the #1 pick is used at least to some degree by the most dealers on the CE Pro 100 list.

Throughout the month of June, CE Pro will present each of the categories in greater detail, including the top 5 brands and every brand mentioned in a given category. View the full report here.

For now, here are the #1 brands.
