Nanoleaf Reveals Five New Matter-Compatible Products at CES 2023
Nanoleaf, the global industry leader of smart lighting innovation and the original creators of the modular smart lighting category, is revealing five new Matter-compatible smart home products at CES 2023, including the company’s first ever learning smart light switches.
The Sense+ Controls line (Sense+ Smart Light Switch, Sense+ Wireless Smart Light Switch and Nala Learning Bridge), Nanoleaf 4D TV Screen Mirror Camera and Lightstrips Kit and Nanoleaf Skylight modular ceiling fixture, will all be revealed at CES 2023 for the first time, offering advanced smart home automations with rich, dynamic and functional lighting to create more ease, convenience and intelligence in your living spaces.
Nanoleaf 4D – TV Screen Mirror Camera and Lighstrips Smarter Kit
Nanoleaf 4D brings your entertainment experience beyond the screen. The 4D TV Smarter Kit comes with a Screen Mirror Camera and Matter-compatible Smart Addressable Lightstrip using new Sync+ technology to transform your favorite movies and games into a truly immersive journey of the senses. With four Screen Mirror modes to choose from and 50 addressable zones on the Lightstrip (5M length), users have complete freedom of customization for their entertainment area. The camera can be set up on top or at the bottom of the TV for flexibility, while the Lightstrip features an easy install with snap-on brackets and included adhesives. Nanoleaf’s exclusive new Sync+ technology not only enables Screen Mirror with your TV, but synchronizes your entire suite of Nanoleaf lighting products together, screen mirroring your favorite entertainment across the entire room so you feel like you’ve stepped right into the scene. Sync+ also enables dynamic lighting Scenes to play across your Nanoleaf lighting setup, synchronizing rich brilliant colors and animations so a single Scene like “Aurora Borealis” and “Vibrant Sunrise” plays continuously across the room.
Nanoleaf 4D TV Smarter Kit is launching Q2 2023, and will be available in two length options: 55”-65” and 70”-80”.
Sense+ Controls and “Nala” Automation Learning Assistant
Nanoleaf’s Sense+ Controls line offers the world’s first ever hands-free smart lighting experience within your home. Matter-enabled and running on Thread, the Sense+ Controls line includes the hardwired Smart Light Switch, Wireless Smart Light Switch and ‘Nala’ Learning Bridge. All three products have built-in motion and ambient lighting sensors to personalise your entire home’s lighting, automated to your daily routines and personal schedules. The ‘Nala’ Learning Bridge also acts as a Thread Border Router and works as a colour-changing night light with a soft glow for when you need just a bit of light in the evenings.
The Sense+ products work together with Nanoleaf’s new intelligent Automations Learning Assistant, named ‘Nala,’ to “learn” your preferences from your everyday usage and routines. ‘Nala’ is a powerful, first-of-its-kind learning assistant creating personalised automations that deliver your perfect lighting exactly when, how and where you want it. Enjoy predictive actions like turning your lights on/off, seamless brightness and colour adjustments, Scene selection based on your preferences and more. Over time, users will be able to have a truly intelligent and hands-free experience with the smart lighting in their home. ‘Nala’s’ automated learning technology is enabled via the ‘Nala’ Learning Bridge; existing Nanoleaf Thread Border Routers* will also be upgradeable to work as a ‘Nala’ Bridge.
In essence, with Sense+ Controls and ‘Nala’ technology, your lights can finally “think,” so you don’t have to. Sense+ Controls is the winner of this year’s CES Innovation Awards and is launching Q3 2023.
Nanoleaf Skylight – Smart Modular Flush Mount Ceiling Fixture
The Nanoleaf Skylight will be the first of its kind modular ceiling fixture that works with Matter, offering users complete control over their ceiling light’s design arrangement and area of coverage. Like Nanoleaf’s best-selling modular wall light panels products, the copany aims to redefine the ceiling fixture industry by designing Skylight with square modular RGBW LED panels that can be arranged to create a variety of different designs.
Working via Wi-Fi, Skylight provides crisp functional white light for everyday use and over 16 million dynamic colours for ambient lighting, with smart features to adjust brightness, colours, colour temperatures and set Schedules.
Skylight comes with all of the smart features that Nanoleaf’s users have come to know and love, including the Rhythm Music Visualiser, Screen Mirror, dynamic lighting Scenes and Group Scenes. The modular ceiling fixture also acts as a Thread Border Router and comes with built-in Sense+ sensors to enable motion and ambient light sensing to enable more lighting automation capabilities in your home.
Nanoleaf Skylight is launching Q3 2023.
Essentials Bulbs & Lightstrips – First Thread Over Matter Lighting
Illuminating your entire home with crisp functional white light and rich dynamic colours and Scenes, the Matter-certified Essentials Bulbs (A19, BR30, GU10 and a Recessed Downlight) and Lightstrip are made for everyday lighting while offering mesmerising animations to set the ideal ambience for different activities, moods and life’s special occasions. The Essentials Matter-certified Bulbs and Lightstrips are launching in Q1 2023.
Nanoleaf’s full line of modular light panels and light bars (Shapes, Elements, Canvas and Lines) will also be Matter upgradeable later this year, offering an easy software update to provide the most seamless way to set up your most personalised smarter home of the future.
