Brilliant announces upcoming integration with Apple’s HomeKit

Brilliant, maker of the Brilliant Home Control, a smart home controller that you swap out a light switch for, has announced integration with Apple’s HomeKit, allowing users to find and control any light connected to the Brilliant Control by voice using Siri or with the Apple Home app on any Apple device.

Leveraging Apple’s software authentication for HomeKit, existing Brilliant customers will be able to get HomeKit support via an automatic, over-the-air firmware update to be issued this spring at no additional cost, says Aaron Emigh, CEO and co-founder of Brilliant. 

The Apple Home app allows users to set scenes, which enable multiple accessories to work in combination, all with a single command. So users can control lights connected to Brilliant Controls, along with other functions such as locking the doors and lowering the thermostat.

Starting at $299, Brilliant comes in six colors. It’s available for purchase at
