Tips and tricks for living smarter

Tips and tricks for living smarter

The first step to a smart home is having a main way to control all of its devices. Luckily, you’re in the right place. The Brilliant Smart Home Control makes it easy and affordable to integrate, manage, and control smart lighting and smart home devices from one place. Here are some tips and tricks to maximize your smart home experience using Brilliant: 

 

Using Scenes to automate:

Scenes are a great way to create preset actions that control multiple devices simultaneously. You can create Scenes that are based on the time of day, motion detection, or that are manually activated. 

For more information on how you can use Scenes in your home, click here, or for more information on how to set up Brilliant Scenes, click here


Connecting via video and audio: 

No more hollering across the house or having to pick up the phone to call someone in another room. Simply broadcast audio announcements or video chat between rooms using Brilliant’s built-in camera and microphone. 

And you can even forget about having to ask your neighbor to keep an eye on the house or calling the kids to check in. Brilliant makes it easy to always keep an eye on what matters most using Live View. 

From the Brilliant mobile app, you can see and speak to anyone from anywhere. 


Automation vs. manual use of your home:  

Controlling your home and its devices is always an option with Brilliant, but when you want or need to automate your life, Brilliant steps in. Use motion detection to automatically turn lights and devices on/off so you never have to manually control them again.

Plus, use the motion detector as an occupancy sensor so lights or devices automatically turn off to save on electricity. 


Make it personal: 

Upload images and display the weather on your Brilliant Control to really make it yours. 

You can upload up to 50 pictures to your Brilliant Control and adjust which rooms they appear in. For more info , click here

Last but not least, input your zip code (US only) and get weather updates via Brilliant’s weather widget. You’ll never be stuck without your rain jacket again! 

Brilliant makes it easy to transform any house into an easy to use smart home. Because truly, your home isn’t smart until you have a true smart home system, not just a home with smart devices. (More on that here though)
