At Connec, we’re always looking for ways to make your life easier. Our strong partnerships with ELAN, URC, and, more recently, Control4 have allowed us to do just that. Automation is our passion; whether that means a simple remote controlled light switch or a full blown smart house that manages your energy, entertains your guests, and secures your home, Connec is willing to design and install anything you need.
We recently became aware of a brand that was founded with those same principles of serving the customer’s needs. Prior to their launch, there was no single platform that could bring together all of the DIY smart products available today. This would lead to not only needing to juggle multiple apps on your phone, but none of the devices would interact with each other; making a house full of “smart” things into a “dumb” solution without any real automation.
Brilliant Home Control is a new construction and retro fit solution for a lot of homeowners that are interested in home automation but are restricted by budget. Brilliant touch screens take the place of your light switches in any room (1 single switch to up to 4 switches). As soon as the screen is installed, you have remote app control of the lights connected to that screen (as well as control on the screen), a built-in intercom with other Brilliant screens as well as the Brilliant mobile app, and a built-in voice assistant via Amazon Alexa.
Brilliant also works with loads of other heavy hitting smart home brands such as Ring Video Doorbell, Ecobee and Honeywell thermostats, WEMO lighting control, August and Schlage motorized door locks, and Sonos smart home audio. You can set up scenes from the Brilliant app to have these devices interact with each other in any way you’d like. For example, a “Party Time” scene may include unlocking your doors, dimming the lights to a pre-programmed percentage, changing the temperature on the thermostat, and turning on your favorite playlist all throughout the home.
The best part about Brilliant Home Control is that their touch screens start at only $299.99, making them one of the most affordable home automation controllers yet. If you’re interested in having Connec install Brilliant products in your home, give us a call today!
