Smart Home Technology Startup Brilliant Secures $21 Million
Brilliant closed $21 million in Series A financing led by August Capital, with participation from Miramar Venture Partners, Box Group, and StartX.
Brilliant has created interface technology that makes it easy for people to interact directly with their home. The company’s first product, the Brilliant Control, replaces an existing light switch to give users touch and voice access to lighting, music, climate and other smart home products. Installing a Brilliant Control typically takes five to ten minutes, and can help households save on lighting costs.
In its announcement, the company said Brilliant would use the financing to expand retail channels, add partnerships, and continue investment into research and product development.
