Create and Pin a Scene

What are Scenes?

Scenes are a powerful feature within the Brilliant ecosystem that allows you to automate your home through actions across all of your smart devices. 

You can easily create a scene that can turn on your lights, play music, and change the climate in your home with the tap of your finger or at a specific time.

 

Create a New Scene

1. Tap Scenes from the bottom tray of your Brilliant control's Home Screen.

 

2. When you enter Scenes for the first time, you will notice you only have two automated scenes - "Turn all Lights Off" and "Turn all Lights On". These scenes will automatically include all the lights in your home to turn on/off.

Note on Thermostats

Scene actions for thermostats can only be added for one thermostat at a time.  If you want a scene to control multiple thermostats, you can do so by adding an individual action for each thermostat.
