Emporia Named One of America’s Best Home and Garden Brands


Last month, Emporia was named by Newsweek as one of “America’s Best Home and Garden Brands of 2022!

According to Nancy Cooper, Global Editor in Chief of Newsweek, the brands were “chosen based on over 1.5 million relevant online reviews and ratings that were written between January 2019 and January 2022.”The ranking was created using both ratings and written online reviews about a variety of home and garden products, and the written reviews were analyzed with a sentiment analysis that identified and extracted relevant information andexamined the expressed opinions and feelings about the products. Using ReQiew, Statista's proprietary online review analysis software, Newsweek then made its selections for the list based on nine product-specific aspects: Performance, Convenience, Experience, Value for Money, Quality, Design, Service, Safety, and Set-Up.

Emporia was selected as one of America’s top three brands in the Smart Energy & Lighting category. Our Smart Plugs, Vue Energy Monitor, Home Battery, and EV Chargers create a total-home smart energy ecosystem suited to virtually any home or budget. Critical to our brand mission is affordability and accessibility, so we pride ourselves on offering the most cost-effective smart home energy management products on the market while still maintaining top-of-the-line technology.

“Being recognized by Newsweek for their Best Home and Garden Brands this year is a huge honor for our company,” said Shawn McLaughlin, Emporia CEO. “Our customers are our number one priority, so being selected by Newsweek, which we know is such a trusted voice in product reviews and quality assurance for consumers, is particularly valuable to us. We also are deeply thankful to our loyal customers, whose positive ratings and reviews are what determined our placement on this highly-selective list of honorees.”
