The Brilliant Smart Home System is now compatible with Resideo’s most popular security platforms, including Lynx and Vista security systems, in addition to its ProSeries Security platform, which was announced last year. The Lyric system integration is expected to be available later this year.
Brilliant is the first third-party touchscreen system that can arm and disarm Resideo’s security system. For example, Resideo’s Total Connect 2.0 platform-users can arm and disarm their Resideo security system from their in-wall Brilliant Smart Home Control or their Brilliant mobile app. The status of the Resideo security system and Total Connect cameras can also be displayed on the Brilliant Smart Home Controller.
With the integration, Brilliant now supports Resideo life safety statuses, including fire, carbon monoxide and medical alarms; Resideo Z-wave device integrations, such as lights, locks, plugs, and switches; and home automation scenes that combine Resideo security system integrations with a range of smart home products controlled by Brilliant including garage openers, window shades, and sound systems.
Brilliant already integrates with Resideo’s Honeywell Home smart thermostats and its Wi-Fi Water Leak & Freeze Detector, and additional system integrations are planned later this year. Wholesale bundles of Resideo and Brilliant smart home products will be made available to dealers via ADI Global Distribution — a Resideo company and the leading global wholesale distributor of security and smart home products.
“We’re incredibly excited to partner with Resideo to unify the worlds of home security and smart home control and deliver a joint solution that appeals to builders, multifamily developers, and homeowners,” said Aaron Emigh, CEO of Brilliant. “Resideo is both an innovator in home security and a strategic investor in our company. By working closely together, we’re able to go to market with a full security and smart home control system that delivers on the promise of what a seamless smart home experience can be.”

Resideo Technologies Inc. also has announced new capabilities for its security and home automation solutions.
Named and designed for the professionals it serves, the ProSeries Platform offers Resideo’s largest range of supported home solutions in one modular, scalable system. The latest firmware update includes the following features:
Dealer branding is now available on the ProSeries panels, touchscreens and Resideo’s Total Connect 2.0 app to help increases awareness with end users.
Customized voice descriptions offer end-users increased personalization and the ability to uniquely identify areas of the home or business – a first in the industry.
A Google Assistant integration offers simple voice control and now available on ProSeries A7 Plus.
Self-help videos for end users are easily accessed through a QR code and help provide immediate help for end users.
Increased flexibility during installation is made possible as the ProSeries panel serves as a Wi-Fi access point for connecting touchscreen keypads.
