Voice Commands Using HomeKit Devices
Frequently Asked Questions
Each control you have will need to be set up with HomeKit to have the devices directly connected to it show up in your Apple Home experience. This is because each Control is an individual device to be authorized through the Apple Home app.
When you set up your Brilliant Control for the first time, you will be asked if you would like to set up HomeKit as part of the onboarding process.
You can add HomeKit in your Brilliant Control by going to
Settings > Works With > HomeKit
and follow the instructions with your iOS device.
HomeKit is the smart home platform accessible through Apple devices and software - namely the Apple Home App, HomePod, or through Siri.
This integration will allow you to control loads that are directly wired to the Brilliant Control, Brilliant Smart Dimmer Switches, and Brilliant Smart Plugs from your Apple Home app, HomePod, or through Siri.
This will allow loads that are directly wired to your Brilliant like lights (dimmable or not) or on/off devices (ex. fans) to show up as HomeKit accessories and be included in scenes and automation within the Apple Home experience.
Note: smart bulbs like Hue/LIFX that are directly wired as a Brilliant Control or Brilliant Switch load would be configured as an "Always On" load from the Brilliant side, and would need to be set up as HomeKit accessories from the LIFX and Hue app.
Apple currently does not provide support for non-Apple devices to display and control HomeKit devices on their interface. We will continue to work with Apple to see if this can be possible in the future.
Unfortunatley no, Siri voice assistant is built into iOS devices like iPhones, Macbooks, HomePod speakers,and Apple Watches.
