If you’re anything like me, your home is littered with a myriad of smart home devices. Sonos, Nest and what feels like a hundred other brands have made their way into our lives but controlling them all at once continues to stay just out of reach. Brilliant, a new display-driven command center, is looking to simplify this mess. Compatibility with some of the biggest names in the business are making this one of the most intriguing releases this year. Add in Alexa support, and we might be on to something. Best of all? It replaces your existing wall switch and it takes just “10 minutes” to install, instantly adding voice control to your lights. Check it out in action:
Brilliant uses a touchscreen display alongside built-in cameras and microphones to interact with users. Upon entering a room, it will automatically make the necessary adjustments to your environment depending on the time of day. For instance, you might set it to play the morning news and adjust the temperature in a certain way at breakfast. It also offers video conferencing between rooms and my personal favorite, the ability to control Sonos on the touchscreen. Brilliant is available at a $50 discount during launch with prices starting at $150. You can choose from a variety of finishes and switch-counts to fit your home.
Are you tired of digging for your mobile phone every time you want to adjust your smart lighting, music, or climate systems? Us too. That’s why we built the Brilliant Control. It replaces an existing light switch to give you and your family easy access to lighting and other smart home products like Sonos, Nest, and more. No mobile app required! Just use touch or voice as soon as you enter the room.
