Control Panel for Connected Homes
The Brilliant Smart Home Control is a user-friendly system for managing all the smart features in a house.
The Brilliant Smart Home Control is one of the most user-friendly systems available for managing all of the smart features in a house, and it sits neatly on the wall in place of a standard light switch. The compact touch screen seamlessly controls many of the popular smart-home brands available for lighting, doorbells, locks, climate, music, and voice assistants, including Ring, Hue, Ecobee, Kwikset, Sonos, and more—plus Amazon’s Alexa is built right into the device. You can choose a model with just the touch screen or one that also includes two, three, or four touch-sensitive dimmer switches. Aside from the obvious smart features, each Smart Home Control can also display photos, show local weather, and function as an intercom between other Brilliant devices in the house. Prices run from $300 for the touch-screen-only model up to $450 for the four-switch version.
