Thank you!

The Brilliant Team
Welcome!

Is your circuit 120V?

A 120V circuit is required, and is standard in North
American homes.

Is your wiring up to code, with Neutral and
Ground wires?

Both Neutral and Ground wires are required, and
present in most modern homes. Refer to Steps 5
and 6 for more details about wires.

Are you replacing a single or 3-way/multi-way
switch?

If you are replacing a 3-way/multi-way switch,
meaning that you can control the same light(s)
from more than one switch, you should confirm
that the Brilliant can support your configuration.
Refer to Step 1 for pictures of the supported
configurations.

Do you have the right tools?

A size 2 screwdriver is needed to remove your old
switch, and to install Brilliant.

Is your gang box a standard size?

A gang box is the electrical box in the wall, behind
the light switch. The box must have an interior
width of no less than 45mm, and an interior height
of no less than 70mm. Standard sizes will work.
Please confirm the following: Base
5 Wire Nuts
5 Extra Wires
Faceplate

It’s important to only use

Identify Your Circuit
Single Pole (Go to 5a)
One light switch that controls a light or
set of lights.
3-Way/Multi-Way (Go to 6a)
Two or more light switches that control the
same set of lights. Line and load wires (black or red)

are connected to your old switch
Ground wire(s) (exposed green or copper)
typically come from the wall box
Neutral wire(s) (white)

typically come in a bundle and are fastened together
by a wire nut. You must connect all of them.

Test Light
Turn the circuit breaker back on to provide
power to the Base. Press the white button
in the center to turn the light on and off. If
the light does not turn on/off, do not install
the Faceplate. Instead, turn the breaker off,
remove the screws, and re-check your wire
connections.
Press
The strain reliefs are designed to bend to accommodate differences in
gang box styles and mountings. Some bending of the strain reliefs is
normal, but be careful not to overtighten. Once the strain reliefs start
to bend, you can stop.
Les décharges de traction sont étudiées afin de permettre à notre
produit de s’adapter à différents types de coffrets de branchement.
Un certain fléchissement des décharges est normal, mais prenez
garde de ne pas serrer trop fort. Des que les décharges commencent à
fléchir, vous pouvez arrêter de serrer.

from the Base. Put one hand above it, and
grab both sides with the other hand. Then,
slide it up and off.

Next, with two hands and your fingers on
the lower edge of the frame, gently pull
slightly down on the rear edge of the frame
until the clips come loose, and the bottom
edge of the frame releases from the display.

Pull forward. Once the lower edge comes
loose, continue to rotate the bottom
edge up until you can easily unclip the
upper hooks from the top edge of the
Faceplate.
To attach a new frame, clip the top clips
onto the top edge of the Faceplate and
then rotate it down until the frame is
seated. To ensure the frame is properly
clipped on, first squeeze the lower two
corners and then squeeze the upper
two corners. You can now reattach the
Faceplate to the wall.
