- Extended Security Control – Check if the garage doors are closed, and open or close them from any room with a Brilliant Control — without needing to carry a phone, download an app, or walk to the garage.
- Simplified Home Automation – Secure the entire home with a tap or voice command by creating home automation scenes. Example scenes include a “Leave Home” or “Goodnight” scene that would close the garage doors, lock the front door, turn off lights, and adjust the thermostat.
- In-Wall Voice – Brilliant’s built-in Alexa feature enables the use of voice commands to manage garage access as well as all other smart home features.
- Unified Remote Control – Use Brilliant’s all-in-one mobile app for iOS and Android to control the entire smart home — lighting, thermostats, locks, Genie garage door openers, Ring cameras, Sonos speakers, and more—from the palm of your hand from anywhere.
