RESIMERCIAL
The CE Pro study focused on two of the three: light
commercial applications (corporate, hospitality, education,
etc.), as well as residential applications using enterprise-grade
equipment (WFH setups). The study shows this is not a " new "
market for most integrators, with respondents reporting they
have been working in the commercial market routinely for the
past nine years. Not coincidentally, that timeframe somewhat
mirrors the deepest time of the Great Recession that began
when the housing bubble collapsed and forced integrators to
seek out commercial opportunities.

commercial application. There are infrastructure requirements
for the entire facility, with specific common areas/public
spaces like lobbies and fitness centers that often require
commercial-grade solutions.
3. Residential applications such as home offices that
require enterprise-grade equipment, such as a robust home
network, high-end home recording studio, home power management/backup power, cellphone signal boosters, and home
offices with teleconferencing/unified communications setups.

Home Offices Take Center Stage
As noted, the median number of home office projects done
by integrators in 2020 was six with a median price point of
$8,106. CE Pro had not previously gauged the market on
the average number of home office installations, so there is
no data to compare against to determine if that is higher or
lower than before. Logic would assume it is a higher number
of home office projects than ever before given the demand
driven by the pandemic as workers and students were stuck
secluded at home.
From a price perspective, clearly home office projects were
lucrative in 2020. On the low end, more than four out of every
