This forum always has better info on ANY topic it seems.
What is your preference for residential electrical supply stuff like switches, outlets etc. Leviton? Eaton? Cooper?
I mainly stick to the box stores and buy the better stuff and not the "basic" 1$ stuff. Any opinions? I hate doing work twice.
I just did my basement as some have seen.

I deal with Leviton for outlets and basic switches.

Lutron Caseta smart dimmers as they integrate easily with home assistant and you can block their home station from the internet and not lose their control ability in local automation

Eaton breakers

Halo recessed lighting 4 and 6"

Iberville junction and 1-3 gang device boxes
My list of preferences as followed

Boxes - Carlon
Switches, outlets timers ect.-Eaton
Panels and disconnects - square d

Just my .02


Can’t argue with this. Solid choices.
Thanks for all the feedback. I was reading some electricians post that leviton has gone downhill for whatever reason. Typically if I'm in a box store I choose lowes who carries Eaton and surprisingly now all klein tools. Guess the pros finally complained enough.
Leviton tamper proof outlets, which are code here for anything reachable by kids, are an annoying design, for sure. And I've had one leviton face detach from the body on a 20A outlet. For my install rate between our two houses (at different times) ive had about a 2% failure rate, which isn't that bad.

BUT, at most stores here in MB, they are basically our only choice. I have no reservations or fears putting them in.

Klein is making waves up here too now. I've got a tool or two of theirs, good quality.
