Control Multiple Lights using Groups

 

As of release v23.01.18, you can now create custom groups of lights (and similar devices) in Brilliant to control them all at once.  

What are Groups?

Groups allow you to control a custom set of multiple lights and similar devices at once through Brilliant.  In particular, any lights, on/off switches (e.g., fans), or smart plugs in your Brilliant home can be added to one or more groups.  Once a group has been created, the group will appear on your Brilliant Control in any of the rooms where the devices in the group are located.

Note on Third-Party Device Groups

Brilliant also supports using device groups that are imported into Brilliant from certain integrated third-party platforms.  However, these third-party device groups are separate from the groups described in this article, which are created and managed entirely within Brilliant and can include devices from different third-party integrations . 

 

Brilliant specifically supports the following third-party device groups:

 

NOTE: Third-party light groups (e.g., Hue and LIFX) can also be added to a group created in Brilliant.
