Frequently Asked Questions
What lighting works with Brilliant?
Brilliant supports LED, CFL, halogen, incandescent. Dimmable incandescent and LED lights also work. Brilliant does not support MLV lighting. There are features to help you perfect your lighting experience, such as auto-detecting your light capabilities, setting your dimmable range, and other adjustments to minimize or eliminate flickering. We have tested this with a wide range of lighting vendors to great success. Brilliant also works with numerous lighting products such as Phillips Hue, Lutron, and Lifx through the SmartThings Hub.

Does Brilliant support dimming for incandescent or LED lights?
Yes, Brilliant supports dimmable incandescent and LED lights. There are also features to help you perfect the experience, such as auto-sensing your light capabilities, setting your dimmable range, and other adjustments to minimize or eliminate flickering. We have tested this with a wide range of lighting vendors to great success.
What are the wiring requirements?
Your home does need to be up to code to use a Brilliant, with load, line, ground, and neutral wires present. If your house was built in the mid-1980s or later, there is an excellent chance that you have neutrals everywhere in your home. Learn more
Does Brilliant support 3-way (multi-way) switching?
Yes, we support 3-way switching. You can set up a Brilliant to work with switches from another manufacturer in a 3-way configuration as long as that other switch is on/off, and not a dimmer. You can also set up multiple Brilliants in a 3-way configuration with dimming. Learn more
How many Brilliant Controls do I need?
All you need is one Brilliant Control to get started, but most people like having Brilliant in rooms where they spend the most time, like the living room, kitchen and bedrooms. On average, most Brilliant users install anywhere from 3-5 Brilliant Controls. The more Brilliant Controls you install, the better the experience is. Installing two or more will also let you enjoy the room-to-room intercom feature. It's always easy to add more Brilliant Controls to your home.
What smart home products can I connect with?
We support a wide variety of smart home products, and are always adding new partners. Our primary connection method is to use Wi-Fi for partner products like Sonos, Ecobee, the Honeywell Lyric, Ring, Philips Hue, Wemo lights, August Lock, and smart plugs, and more. If you would like to connect to smart locks like Schlage, or already have Z-Wave or Zigbee products, we also support hubs from SmartThings so you can control them from a Brilliant. Amazon Alexa Voice Services are already built in, so you just need to connect to your Amazon account. You can also use both Google Assistant/Google Home and Amazon Alexa devices to voice control the lights. See all partners
Will my family and guests be able to use Brilliant without training?
We designed Brilliant so that everyone (family and guests in particular) can quickly understand how it works with no training. Once you install Brilliant, you can swipe your finger up/down on the screen to turn on/off lights. For Brilliant Controls made to replace 2-4 switches, move your fingers up and down on the touch sliders. Adjusting the Sonos volume or music track that you are listening to has never been easier.
Does Brilliant support ceiling fans?
As long as your ceiling fan has an on/off switch, then yes we can support it. We do not currently support speed-adjusting ceiling fans.
If my Wi-Fi/Internet goes down, will Brilliant still work?
Yes, Brilliant will work without Wi-Fi or an Internet connection. You will need Wi-Fi to use the video intercom, or to connect to other smart home devices in the house. An Internet connection is required to use Alexa. But if Wi-Fi isn't present, Brilliant will use Bluetooth to connect with each other.
Will this work in the UK or other countries?
No, our initial product is made for 120v, not the 240v standard that is present in the UK and many other countries. We do not have plans to launch an international product in 2019.
