Salt Lake City, UT, June 1st, 2015 — Control4 Corporation (NASDAQ: CTRL), a leading global provider of smart home solutions, has been named as the top Whole-House Automation brand by the 2015 CE Pro 100 Brand Analysis report. CE Pro magazine is a leading trade publication for professionals involved in the custom electronics business. The report released today on CEPro.com includes a survey of the highest revenue-generating businesses in the custom installation industry which reveals that Control4 is viewed as a leading brand in seven unique categories, including recognition as the top brand in four of these categories as follows:
· Whole-House Automation – Top Brand
· Multi-Room Audio – Top Brand
· HVAC/Energy/Smart Grid Management – Top Brand
· Access Control – Top Brand
· Universal Remote Control – In the Top 2 Brands
· Lighting Control – In the Top 2 Brands

“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. The conclusions drawn from this year’s data have certainly solidified Control4’s position as a market leader in not only four major categories, but also a top-three brand in other areas like Universal Remote Control, Lighting Control, and Intercom Systems.”
Based on this research conducted by CE Pro, Senior Editor Robert Archer notes that Control4 is among the “Big 3” brands in the custom installation industry that “have rapidly taken on the role of market leaders.” Archer comments further that the reason why brands like Control4 are emerging as market leaders is because their “value-added products, price points and dealer support mechanisms are resonating with installers.”
