SmartThings Integration

How does Brilliant work with SmartThings?

Brilliant integrates with SmartThings in two ways:

1. Brilliant Control: You can connect SmartThings-compatible lights, switches, and locks to the Brilliant Control and control them like other smart home products that work with Brilliant. Some devices may require the SmartThings Hub to connect to your Brilliant.

2. SmartThings App:You can use the SmartThings app to control lights connected to your Brilliant Control or Dimmer Switch as well as toggle devices connected to your Brilliant Plug. For more information, see the Smart Things App section on

Connecting SmartThings devices to the Brilliant Control

Once you connect your SmartThings account to the Brilliant Control, we find your SmartThings devices, and you let us know what room it is in.

You can access your SmartThings devices by:

  • Tapping Rooms and visiting a room with the SmartThings devices in it to control.
  • Assigning a SmartThings Light to respond to your Slider or Screen Gesture.
  • Creating Scenes on your Brilliant that include your SmartThings devices.
  • Controlling your SmartThings devices from the Brilliant Mobile App remotely.

Setting up your SmartThings devices with Brilliant


  1. Your SmartThings Devices must be able to be controlled from the partner manufacturer's mobile app (ex. Leviton, Lutron). 

  2. Your SmartThings Mobile App must be able to discover and control the devices. This may or may not require a SmartThings Hub. 

Note: If your connected device works within your SmartThings mobile app AND is a light, lock, shade or switch, it can be discovered by Brilliant.

Connecting your SmartThings devices using your SmartThings App
