Pelco Favorability Results

Author: Brian Karas, Published on Dec 02, 2016

This is the first in a series of studies of manufacturer favorability. 100+ integrators rated and explained their views of each manufacturer.

We start with Pelco.

A decade ago, Pelco was clearly one of the biggest names in the industry but has suffered a steep decline in the past decade. Now, integrator's results show that Pelco's favorability is quite poor.

The main themes integrators cited were:

  • Old / lagging
  • Poor quality / overpriced
  • Schneider ownership negative

Inside this report, we share more than 50 integrator responses, examine the themes and the outlook for Pelco.
