  • If none of the above works, please contact our support team by emailing Please be sure to include the following:
    • Description of the issue you are experiencing
    • Make and Model of the routers you have in your home
    • Anything special about your networking setup that we should know about


  1. All mesh networks should be configured in bridge mode. If your mesh network is not configured in bridge mode, you have the possibility of creating a Double NAT environment. Under a Double NAT, devices you own may have trouble connecting to each other.
    1. A Double NAT configuration is when you connect your router behind another router creating two different private networks.
  2. If you are not able to connect your Brilliant Control to your WiFi network, you may want to try using your phone as a hotspot and seeing if your Brilliant Control will connect to your phone's hot spot.
    1. If your Brilliant Control does connect to your phone's hot spot and is able to update its software, try connecting it to your home network again.
      If your Brilliant Control connects to your phone's hot spot but not your home network, then we know we have isolated the problem to something with the home network.
