Melbourne Based Brilliant Set To Be A Key Player In Smart Technology Market
They are known as Brilliant Lighting, now they are also called Brilliant, a Melbourne based Company that is taking on the affordable SmartHouse market with a range of technology products that are designed to be both affordable and rich in IOT functionality.
Unlike a lot of SmartHouse technology providers who are one day are flogging DVD players, bags and battery back up and the next day, an IOT product because they have spotted an opening in a market or a category that they believe they can stuff with Chinese made and designed products, Brilliant is simply evolving from being a major supplier of lighting in Australia to today delivering the control systems for not only their lighting which is sold widely across Australia but a host of smart devices that can be connected to their new Nexus control system.
Norman Levin is the Managing Director and owner of Brilliant, who are also a leading lighting and air-movement wholesale supplier to retail, trade, and DIY stores nationally.
Prior to establishing Brilliant Norman was an Executive Vice president of a major New York Development Company.
On one major $3 Billion dollar New York project he directed the activities of architects, urban planners, environmentalist, civil, mechanical, and structural engineers and a legal team in the development of what was a significant urban project in the USA.
Under his direction Brilliant has become one of the nation’s largest and most respected names in the lighting industry with the Company now working to grow their IOT business across mass retailers allowing consumers to upgrade their homes or when building a new one configures it from top to bottom in integrated technology that is not only energy efficient but delivers a high level of functionality according to CEO Colin Goldman.
Today smart homes are being designed for maximum convenience, security and energy-efficiency with Australia having one of the highest adoptions of solar.
The IOT products that Brilliant are now ranging including not only smart lighting but smart door locks, cameras, Gateways, plugs and power boards as well as switches that all integrate into their new Brilliant Smart App that works with Google Assistant, Alexa Voice as well as other certified IOT systems.
According to Colin Goldman the Brilliant Smart products are designed to eliminate a great deal of stress and worry that consumers confront when looking to upgrade their homes to be smart enabled.
He recognises that smart house technology can be a confusing place to navigate, especially for beginners who are just getting to know the options out there.
“we have a rock-solid pedigree when it comes to delivering all sorts of lighting from indoor to outdoor. We work with installers and electricians and our evolution into delivering a new level of functionality for a home also delivers for retailers, electricians and trades the opportunity to work with a Company that has been designing and manufacturing lighting systems for a long time”.
Brilliant believe that the primary advantage of a Smart Home is that you can flexibly control and automate smart house technology and because lighting is a key part of a control system along with airflow and security they are in an “excellent position to be a key player” as the market evolves.
Their Smart App which can be used on a smartphone or tablet, can control everything from lighting and blinds to heating and sound systems with maximum convenience.
If your mobile device isn’t at hand, you can voice control the Brilliant smart gear via Google Voice or a virtual assistant Alexa. Alexa responds to commands such as “Alexa, dim the living room lights to 50 percent”, “Alexa, close the blinds” or “Alexa, switch on the radio”.
Currently the Company is looking to expand into the Network speaker market with several major retailers already stocking their offering.
Their new Nexus Gateway is one of the most advanced available in retail stores today.
It’s powerful and intuitive ecosystem allows for total control of all lighting, electrical and security smart devices including thousands of branded products. It can also control audio visual equipment (TV, Foxtel, CR player, Apple TV) and expands the functionality of Smart in the home. It is a major step forward in creating a fully Connected Home.
By activating and pairing this gateway users can monitor and control Energy, Ambiance and Entertainment all from a single App.
The Nexus Gateway incorporates state-of-the-art hardware architecture with Real Time Performance.
It can also be controlled via voice activation.
