How does Brilliant work with Schlage Smart Locks?
There are two ways to connect Schlage smart locks to the Brilliant Control:
- Schlage Encode™ Smart WiFi Deadbolt: This smart lock with built-in Wi-Fi connects directly to the Brilliant Control after you go through the Add Device process.
- Schlage Connect™ Smart Deadbolt: This series of Schlage smart locks integrate with SmartThings via Z-Wave and Zigbee (requires the SmartThings Hub). Once connected to SmartThings, you can add these locks to your Brilliant Control through Brilliant’s SmartThings integration.
Once you connect your Schlage smart lock to the Brilliant Control, the lock will be recognized by the Brilliant Control and you can assign it to a room. You can control the lock in the following ways:
- Tap the Home icon and select the room assigned to the lock
- Use voice commands with Alexa once you have the Brilliant Alexa Experience set up and the Schlage Home Skill (for Encode) or SmartThings Alexa Skill (for Connect) 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 talk to the person outside and unlock/lock the door from that screen
- Create Scenes on your Brilliant that include your Schlage Lock
- Control your Schlage lock using the Brilliant Mobile App
