Nanoleaf enters the smart light game with the new A19 bulb and light strip

Nanoleaf is finally expanding beyond the panel light market with the launch of a new smart bulb. The Canadian smart lighting company has made a name for itself in recent years with its illuminated artistic wall panels, but is now delving into simple smart light bulbs, a space the Toronto-based company experimented with. from the early to mid-2010s. The new products are called Nanoleaf Essentials. There is an A19 smart bulb and a traditional LED light strip. Both of these items perform very well in my tests and offer some unique features compared to other smart bulbs. The A19 bulbThis new smart bulb features what Nanoleaf calls its 'rhombicosidodecahedron' design, which basically means that the top of the bulb is shaped like a cool geode. Beyond its unique appearance, the light c...

Here’s how to connect the Nanoleaf lights to your Google Assistant, Alexa, or Homekit

So you just got some of Nanoleaf's sleek new smart light panels to decorate a room in your house and want to connect them with your smart home setup? No problem, here we have the summary of how to do it. The Toronto-based company launched two new 'Shapes' based lighting options, the new Shapes Triangles and Mini Triangles. But whether you're moving them around, the Shapes Hexagons (which are interoperable with the other Shapes options), or the old Canvas or Light Panels, the integration process with your smart home should look the same. First, you will need to download the Nanoleaf app and follow the steps to set up and connect your lights to the app. Without that step, the rest will not work. Once done, you can integrate Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, or Homekit to control the...

Nanoleaf’s new Triangles and Mini Triangles allow for incredible new panel combinations

Earlier this week, Toronto-based smart lighting company Nanoleaf announced an expansion on its 'Shapes' smart lighting panels. The company added two new options to the Shapes line, the new Triangles and Mini Triangles lights. I had the opportunity to test the new Triangles and Mini Triangles and in short, Nanoleaf has outdone itself once again. The new Shapes Triangles are an update to the company's original triangle-shaped Light Panels, but with the new connector that makes them interoperable with other Shapes panels, such as the Hexagon lights released earlier this year. Mini Triangles, on the other hand, are a smaller option that are also more affordable. Someone who wants to get into Nanoleaf without spending a ton of money will appreciate the new Mini Triangles, plus they work ...

Nanoleaf Introduces New Shapes Triangles and Mini Triangles Light Panels

Toronto-based smart lighting company Nanoleaf announced the latest addition to its Shapes line of smart light panels, 'Triangles' and 'Mini Triangles'. Expanding on Shapes Hexagons, the company first announced at CES this year, Triangles and its smaller Mini variant take advantage of the company's new 'Connect +' technology for interoperable connections. Before Connect + and Shapes, the Nanoleaf light panels couldn't work with each other. Owners of the company's other smart panels such as 'Canvas' or the original triangle-shaped 'Light Panels' cannot use them together due to different size connectors.I really can't overstate how much better Connect + is compared to the old technology. On the one hand, Connect + introduces a ne...

Nanoleaf’s new hexagon ‘Shapes’ are the company’s best light panels yet

Toronto-based Nanoleaf has expanded its smart light solutions with a fun new shape. Customers now have three options to choose from when looking for smart light panels; triangles, squares and hexagons — or ‘Shapes Hexagons,’ as Nanoleaf calls them. Although Shapes offer the same basic functionality as the company’s square-shaped ‘Canvas’ light panels, I found Shapes to be the ultimate realization of Nanoleaf’s vision. Nanoleaf provided me with Shapes Hexagons samples to test out after spending some time with the company’s older Canvas and triangular ‘Light Panels.’ You can read more about those here. I found that Canvas offered some exciting options when it came to creating unique lighting layouts above and beyond the triangular Light Panels, but Shapes felt even more flexible.Howeve...
