CE Pro Brand Analysis 2018: Most Popular Brands Among Smart-Home Pros
CE Pro 100 dealers, the largest smart-home pros in North America, reveal their top brands in home-tech categories such as audio, video, networking, home automation, HDMI cables and lighting controls.
Consumers might have their own favorite brands of audio, video and home automation, but which brands are the most preferred among smart-home pros?
CE Pro compiles these top brands every year as part of its CE Pro 100 Brand Analysis, a list of the most-specified brands among the largest home-technology integrators. These dealers include specialty high-end shops that complete just a handful of projects every year, as well as high-volume security installers and retailers that crank out thousands of jobs that include thermostats, surveillance cameras, remote controls, wireless networking and other electronics.
In this year's report, you’ll find the leading brands for the 58 product categories that make up the Brand Analysis. This year CE Pro added four new categories to the lineup:
- Light fixtures
- Buying groups
Keep in mind that the Brand Analysis results are based on information submitted by only 100 companies. True, these CE Pro 100 companies represent the largest providers, but they still comprise just a fraction of the thousands of residential custom integrators that sell and install home-technology products.
