Do you have a neutral
wire in the wall box?

Your home does need to be up to code to use a Brilliant device, with load, line, ground, and neutral wires present. Neutral wires are typically white. They are either a single wire or are bundled together with a wire nut.

Other installation Resources

The Brilliant Smart Dimmer Switch installs in place of any standard light switch and comes in four colors to match any decor wall plate. It fits any standard electrical box and doesn’t require any custom modifications or hubs. You will need a neutral wire and at least one Brilliant Smart Home Control must be installed before you install any Dimmer Switches.

It is possible to install Brilliant in "3-way" or "multi-way" configurations, where more than one switch controls the same light. To learn more about it, read below.

What is a "Multi-way" Configuration?

A "3-way" switch makes it possible to turn the power on and off from more than one location. "4-way” switches are added when there are three or more locations. A “multi-way” switch is a “3-way” or “4-way” switch, meaning that the same lights can be controlled from multiple locations.

If you have a multi-way switch and plan on using a Brilliant Smart Dimmer, you will need to replace the entire setup with other Brilliant Smart Dimmers or Brilliant Controls. To see how to properly install your switches, we highly recommend walking through the installation in the Brilliant Mobile App or see our diagrams here

Multiway Configuration where Switch is Load Side and Control is Line Side

Since your Control is receiving power (Line Side), we will need to configure the Control to pass the power to the load side and remap the slider for the fixture you wish to control that is currently controlled by your Smart Dimmer Switch.

Load Side Switch Configuration

  1. Open the Brilliant Mobile app and go to Settings --> Install
  2. Start the install of a Smart Dimmer Switch
  3. On the step where it asks how many Switches control your load, make sure to select 1. (This is because only the Load side switch will control the load...all other switches will communicate with the load side switch via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi).
  4. Complete the configuration of this load side Switch

Line Side Control Configuration

  1. Go to the Brilliant Control.
  2. Tap on Settings --> Light --> select the # corresponding to the positon (multi-gang units only)
  3. Tap on “Re-configure” under “DEVICE INFO” and select Light Type as “Always On”. When it asks you how many switches control this load, select 1. (This is because only the Load side switch will control the load...all other switches will communicate with the load side switch via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi).
  4. Once your light is reconfigured as Always On, go to Settings --> Slider (multigang Controls only) (for single gang Control go to Gestures)
  5. Now you are on the control's slider settings. Scroll to Slider Controls below and select “Update Slider Settings” and update the slider to control the load (from the load side Switch).

Multiway Configuration where Control is Load Side and Switch is Line Side

Since your Switch is receiving power (Line Side), we will need to configure the Switch to pass the power to the load side and remap the slider for the fixture you wish to control that is currently controlled by your Brilliant Control.

Load Side Control Configuration

  1. From your Brilliant Control, go to Settings
  2. Tap on Light --> select the # corresponding to the position (multi-gang units only)
  3. Tap on "Re-Configure" under Device Info" and select Light Type to be whatever your light type is. When it asks you how many switches control this load, make sure to select 1. (This is because only the Load side switch will control the load...all other switches will communicate with the load side switch via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi).

Line Side Switch Configuration

  1. Open the Brilliant Mobile app and go to Settings --> Install
  2. Start the install of a Smart Dimmer Switch
  3. When you are setting up the light type, make sure to select Power Outlet (Always On)
  4. On the step where it asks how many Switches control your load, make sure to select 1. (This is because only the Load side switch will control the load...all other switches will communicate with the load side switch via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi).
  5. Complete the configuration of this Switch

Once the Line Side Switch is configured to be Always On, we will need to reconfigure the slider to control the Load Side Control.

  1. From a Control, tap on Home
  2. Tap the room the Switch is associated with
  3. Tap the pencil in the top right-hand corner
  4. Scroll down until you see the Switch you just configured (make sure you see a picture of the Switch)
  5. Tap on the gear icon next to the Switch
  6. Tap Update Slider Settings
  7. Change the Slider to control the load associated with your Control (Load side).

Where can Brilliant be installed?

Brilliant Dimmer Switches can replace any standard light switch (neutral and ground wires required). If you want to install Brilliant Smart Dimmer Switches in a 3-way or multiway circuit, all switches in the circuit must be Brilliant Smart Dimmer Switches or Brilliant Control Panels.
