SAN MATEO, CA – July 28, 2020 – Brilliant, the leading smart home control and lighting company, today announced a new platform to improve the overall experience of apartment living for residents and make multifamily properties easier and more cost-effective to manage. Brilliant now enables property developers, owners, and managers to: 1) increase the appeal and value of their properties by offering the industry’s most user-friendly smart apartments as a standard amenity and 2) drive operational efficiencies and cost savings using Brilliant’s new enterprise software and property automation tools.
Designed to be easily installed in new and existing multifamily properties, Brilliant’s smart apartment system offers integrations with a growing list of the most popular smart home products and smart property systems and an easy-to-use software dashboard for property managers to remotely monitor, control, and automate portfolios of smart apartment properties.
