Work in progress
The app is not elegant but works fairly well on phone, terrible on iPad. Integration with HomeKit is extremely limited, only light switches get exported. Controller camera is very low quality so video on app is mediocre. Otherwise the control looks great and does what it is supposed to.
No longer works on iPad
Love the Brilliant system overall. I have several of their controls throughout my house and was a relatively early adopter. However, after the most recent update, the app now just crashes at launch on my iPad. Have tried removing it and reinstalling, restarting the iPad, etc.
App is garbage (updated)
Spent an hour getting the device installed. Don't get me wrong, it's beautiful. However I have downloaded the app and every time I try to create an account, it says there was an error and to try again later. Tried 10-20 times over the course of an hour with different emails and names, and it never works. $500 device and I can't use it because of a poorly coded app. I'll be returning it tomorrow seeing as you can't use any of the features without an account and I can't create an account. Update: After giving up for the night, I decided to try the next day. Maybe it was a server issue, but I was able to set it up in the morning. The app is still not amazing, but the device more than makes up for it. Upgrading to 4 stars.
Life is easier
Life is do much easier having the app installed. We have a two switch and ready gif a four switch .
With all the Wi-Fi products I have this centralized all. It form the head of voltron initially I bought 2 I had to buy another two for all the functions it possessed. It made lights that are smart by making the switch that controls them smart. So u don’t have to buy hue bulbs like I did. But if u have the hue bulbs u can control the hue bulbs while not having to worry about someone cutting the switch off. So many benefits and adds value to your property. Great product
I love the look and had high expectations that this would be helpful for my smart home, but with the app not really able to make changes or work with setting I’m finding we hardly ever use it it morn then just tough to turn on and off the lights. I could have just added light diner switch to do the same thing yes it wouldn’t look as nice, but for the price it lacks as a true home control panel for lights.
Network connectivity issues literally all the time
I’ve never had this app work for me, I’ve tried 3 WiFi networks and 2 cell networks and every time, it connects to my brilliant home, but shows all devices as offline even as I’m standing right in front of the control panel, which says it’s online. Absolutely useless app for me. Don’t make the same mistake i have and pay $300+ for a screen that shows you the time and lets you swipe up and down to turn on a light. I wish I had just bought a light switch and saved the cash and months of my time fighting this dumb “smart” home ecosystem...
