The real enemy of this device is the ever improving Google Assistant. The last time I checked – everyone in my home had a voice…and it’s with them wherever they happen to be. The integration with Chromecast Audio and Phillips Hue has been working near flawlessly.

What about ceiling fan control?

Reedith Graham says:

Here’s a question can you turn off Alexa but still have all the functionality that it gives you. Because you already have an echo in that room. So is there a Alexa skill you can enable ?

It’s really blurring the line between Savant/ control4 and off-the-shelf Best Buy Smart Home Products like this

Logitech Harmony support?

Ryan 350sx says:

will this unit bring over short cuts from wink or routines from alexa? if so will the short cut in the display come up as an icon you tap to activate the short cut or routine?

Dayne Scott says:

Very cool and excited to see how future models are upgraded. I have Sonos, Nest (IQ camera and thermostat), and Alexa so this would be perfect for me. I don’t think I’ll buy this model quite yet because I thought the camera on this edition acted like a nanny cam. That is the only downfall which will more than likely make me skip out on buying it. Again, very excited to see what Brilliant does in the future of smart homes.
