Control Brilliant using a voice assistant

The Brilliant Smart Home System works with a variety of voice assistants such as Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and Apple HomeKit’s Siri. Learn how to add your favorite voice assistant to your Brilliant Home and how it works with Brilliant. 


Adding Alexa:

Brilliant has Alexa built-in which means it has a majority of the features of a typical Alexa device such as an Echo, Echo dot, etc. You can ask questions like, “Alexa, what’s the weather today?”, and it will respond via the Brilliant Control speaker. Plus, you can use any Alexa-enabled device (including Brilliant) to control lights that are wired to your Brilliant Control, Smart Dimmer Switch, or Smart Plug. 

If Brilliant doesn’t have a direct integration with a product or brand, but it works with Alexa, you’re able to control it via Brilliant using Alexa.

Adding Google Assistant

The current integration with Google Assistant allows you to Control your Brilliant lighting. You’ll be able to control lights connected to your Brilliant Control or Dimmer Switch, as well as toggle between devices connected to a Brilliant Plug.

Adding Apple HomeKit

Each Brilliant Control you have will need to be set up with HomeKit to have devices directly connected to it show up in your Apple HomeKit experience. Your Smart Dimmer Switches and Plugs will be connected as you connect your devices to HomeKit. 

When you set up your Brilliant Control for the first time, you will be asked if you would like to set up HomeKit as part of the onboarding process.
