Turning off the breaker before you install Brilliant


Depending on the location of the switch you’re replacing, the power supply may be controlled by a Circuit Breaker Panel or Fuse Box.

You’ll need to shut OFF power at the Circuit Breaker or Fuse Box for the switch you are replacing.

Most homes have flip switches in a circuit breaker box that control power to individual circuits in your home. To install Brilliant, you need to turn off the circuit breaker for the area of the home where the light switch is located. The switches in your breaker box should be labeled with the locations in your home. You may need to shut OFF more than one switch for all of the wires in your gang box.

If you have an older home, you may have a fuse box or panel. These fuse boxes or panels are generally located in a stairwell, closet, basement, or garage. Instead of controlling power to your circuits through switches, they use fuses. The individual circuits are controlled by screwing fuse plugs in and out of sockets on the panel, similar to a light bulb. To install Brilliant, you will need to disconnect power to the individual circuit where the light switch to be replaced is located. If you have a fuse box or panel, unscrew and remove the fuse controlling the circuit that you want to work on.
