"The annual CE Pro 100 Brand Analysis report is a valuable industry barometer of the brands that work the hardest for homeowners and professional integrators," said Martin Plaehn, Control4 Chairman and CEO. "The rankings from this data set recognize manufacturers who do more than just create brilliant products; they also work hard to support the dealer network in multiple aspects of their business to ensure their success. Making progress year-after-year in these categories validates our commitment to the ultimate satisfaction of both homeowners and system integrators."

Jason Knott, editor-in-chief of CE Pro, commented: "Our annual research has consistently seen Control4 on the rise in many categories.
