Kwikset Halo Integration

How does Brilliant work with Kwikset Halo Locks?

Once you connect your Kwikset account to the Brilliant Control, the lock will be discovered by the Brilliant Control and you can assign it to a room. 

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 Kwikset Smart Home Alexa Skill enabled to unlock/lock your door.
  • If Ring is also connected to Brilliant and someone rings the doorbell, you will see a notification with the ability to talk to the person outside and unlock/lock your Kwikset Halo Lock. 
  • Creating Scenes on your Brilliant that include your Kwikset Halo Lock. 
  • Controlling your Kwikset Halo Lock from the Brilliant Mobile App.
