Having started off in 2012 with just two crowdfunded smart lights, Nanoleaf has grown to become a popular player in the smart home space. There are now several products to choose from in the Nanoleaf catalogue, with more incoming each year that passes. There are light panels and light sticks, plus basics like smart bulbs and light strips.
All Nanoleaf smart lights allow you to customize the ambience of the room they’re set up in – some can even be mounted on a ceiling – supporting over 16 million colors, including tunable white light. You can even sync some of the lights to your favorite tunes or get them to mimic what’s happening on a larger screen like a TV or PC monitor.
Nanoleaf has been quick to take on new smart home protocols, being one of the first few to adopt Thread connectivity when it first rolled out in 2015. It’s also one of the few companies to have Matter-enabled smart lights, so you can control several such IoT devices with just a single Matter hub like a Google Nest Hub 2, Amazon Echo (4th gen) or the Apple HomePod mini.
