August & Connected by August Smart Lock Integration

How does Brilliant work with August Locks?

Once you connect your August account to the Brilliant Control, the lock will be recognized by the Brilliant Control and you can assign it to a room. Yale and Emtek smart locks that are Connected by August are also compatible.

You can access your lock by:

  • Tapping Rooms and visiting a room with the lock in it to unlock/lock
  • Using Alexa once you have your Brilliant Alexa Experience set up AND have your August Alexa Skill enabled to unlock/lock your door.
  • If Ring is also connected and someone rings the doorbell, you will see a notification with the ability to both talk to the person outside and unlock/lock your August lock. 
  • Creating Scenes on your Brilliant that include your August Lock. 
  • Controlling your August Lock from the Brilliant Mobile App. 

Setting up your August Lock with Brilliant

Before you begin, use the August app to set up your August Lock and August Connect. The August Connect Wifi Bridge is required to use August with Brilliant.

1. Go to Brilliant Home Screen

2. Tap "Add Device" on the bottom tray

3. Tap "August"

4. Follow the instructions on the screen to log into your August account

5. Tap the August lock you'd like to add to the room and follow the remaining screen setup instructions

Note: If your August lock is not detected, it might be that your Wifi Bridge is not properly configured to your Wifi. Try turning off Bluetooth on your phone and then check if you are able to lock/unlock the lock using your August app. Once you are able to lock/unlock the lock via the August app with Bluetooth turned off, Brilliant should be able to detect the lock.
