At Brilliant, our mission is to make interacting with all of your smart devices simple, from lights, music, climate, security, and doorbells to whatever comes next. Today, we are pleased to share what’s next: Garage Doors.

Brilliant, the leading smart home control and lighting company, and Genie, the most recognized brand of smart garage door openers, announce a new integration to bring more convenience, simplicity, and security to the smart home industry. Genie’s full line of Wi-Fi enabled garage door openers powered by Aladdin Connect® can now be controlled from Brilliant’s in-wall touchscreen control panels and mobile app.

Brilliant is the first affordable smart home control and smart lighting system that unifies all your favorite smart home devices and makes them easier to use. Homeowners, families, renters, and guests could already control lighting, locks, cameras, music, thermostats effortlessly by using simple voice-enabled touchscreen controls on the walls or the all-in-one Brilliant app. Now they can add garage doors to the list.

Key benefits:

  • 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.

“At Brilliant, our mission is to make interacting with all of your smart devices simple, from lights, music, climate, security, and doorbells to whatever comes next. Today, we are pleased to share what’s next: Garage Doors,” said Aaron Emigh, Co-Founder and CEO of Brilliant. “The integration between Brilliant and Genie offers a new opportunity for homebuilders and custom integrators to create more convenient and smarter homes for their customers.”

"We’re excited to partner with Brilliant to offer our customers more convenient ways to control their homes" said Mike Kridel, President of The Genie Company. "Genie and Brilliant are committed to helping homeowners meet their needs now and in the future by working with homebuilders and custom integrators to create a more harmonious smart home experience."
