Nanoleaf has long been a company at the fore in using lighting as an aesthetic decoration. First with Aurora, then with Canvas and Elements, Nanoleaf continually reinvents the idea of what smart lighting can be in the home. The new Nanoleaf lines are no exception, bringing a new style of design to the Nanoleaf lineup.
Nanoleaf Lines are backlit LED bars that can be arranged in almost any pattern. They connect to each other at an angle of 60 degrees. Lines have dual-color areas that each allow two colors to be displayed simultaneously. With over 16 million colors to choose from, users can create vibrant lighting displays in their homes. One of the most impressive features is that it acts as a thread border router, meaning the Nanoleaf Lines can automatically connect to your home network without a hub.
The Lines include all the features users have come to expect from other entries in the Nanoleaf lineup, including the ability to create unique visuals. Nanoleaf Lines comes with 19 preset sequences, including seven rhythm sequences that use music visualization technology. You can explore many other scenes through the Nanoleaf app or create your own through the Scene Creator.
Rhythm Music Visualizer technology syncs with your favorite songs in real time to help you “see” your music in a new way. Each dual zone of the lines will pulse and beat over time with the song. You can choose from 22 different rhythm tempos.
Lines can reflect what is on your TV screen or monitor through Screen Mirror feature. This helps create a more immersive lighting experience through four different modes, from palette for more subtle transitions to total accuracy in Match mode.
Nanoleaf Lines can be controlled via Amazon Alexa or Google Home, as well as Apple HomeKit and Siri. More customization will be available in the future via a snap-on faceplate that acts as a “skin” for the lights. These will be available in Black and Pink colors from December.
The Nanoleaf Lines are available for pre-order now. Base kits start at $200 for a set of nine lines, while expansion kits (three lines each) are available for $80.
