If you’re looking to illuminate your home with the latest in the best of smart lights, lighting specialist Nanoleaf is bringing a range of Matter-compatible smart home products to CES 2023 in Las Vegas this week.
The Nanoleaf Skylight modular ceiling luminaire is one of five products on display that are compatible with Matter 1.0, a connectivity standard designed to facilitate communication between smart home devices. Skylight is the first product of its kind to offer users full control over ceiling lighting layout and coverage area.
As with its best-selling Nanoleaf modular wall panels, the company aims to reimagine ceiling lighting by designing Skylight with square modular RGBW LED panels that can be stacked to create different designs.
Operating over Wi-Fi, Skylight provides crisp, functional white light for everyday use and over 16 million dynamic colors for ambient lighting, with smart features allowing users to adjust brightness, color and color temperature, and set schedules. Skylight is packed with all the smart features that Nanoleaf users have come to know and love, including Rhythm Music Visualizer, Screen Mirror, Dynamic Lighting Scenes, and Group Scenes.
The modular ceiling light also acts as a Thread border router, allowing the network connecting smart home devices to communicate with the home Wi-Fi network, and comes with built-in Sense+ sensors for motion and ambient light detection to give homeowners more control over their lighting automation routines.
What else will Nanoleaf present at CES 2023?
Nanoleaf also presents the Sense+ Controls range (Sense+ Smart Light Switch, Sense+ Wireless Smart Light Switch and Nala Learning Bridge) and the Nanoleaf 4D TV Screen Mirror Camera plus Lightstrips Kit.
The Sense+ control and Nala technology basically let your tubes “think” so you don’t have to, and its capabilities have to be seen to be believed. Offers the world’s first hands-free smart lighting.
The Matter-enabled and Thread-powered Sense+ Controls line includes a Wired Smart Light Switch, Wireless Smart Light Switch, and Nala Educational Bridge. All three products have built-in motion and ambient light sensors that allow you to personalize and automate your home lighting to match your daily activities.
The Nala Learning Bridge also functions as Thread’s edge router and works as a color-changing nightlight with a soft glow for when you just need a little light in the evenings.
There will also be Matter-certified Essentials bulbs (A19, BR30, GU10 and recessed downlight) and Lightstrip, which will be launched later this year, enabling you to illuminate your entire home with crisp, functional white light and rich, dynamic colors and scenes.
The full line of Nanoleaf Modular Light Panels and Light Bars (Shapes, Elements, Canvas and Lines) will also be available for the Matter update later this year, offering easy software upgrades to provide the most hassle-free way to set up your smart home.
I, for one, am a bit out of my comfort zone when talking about TVs, but essentially the 4D TV Screen Mirror Camera – and the Matter-compatible smart addressable light bar it comes with – uses new Sync+ technology to transform your your favorite movies and games by analyzing on-screen content and adjusting the Lightstrip’s output for a room-filling, immersive experience – think Philips Ambilight on steroids.
There are four Screen Mirror modes to choose from and 50 addressable zones per Lightstrip (5m long) that you can customize to suit your needs. You can position the camera at the top or bottom of your TV, and Sync+ can synchronize the entire Nanoleaf lighting system if you wish.
The Nanoleaf 4D TV Smarter Kit will be available in two screen sizes – 55”-65” and 70”-80” – from Q2 2023. In addition to the Nanoleaf 4D TV Smarter Kit, all other new Nanoleaf products will be launched in Q3 2023 quarter of 2023 .
