The Nanoleaf Remote is greater than button and distant gadgets from different firms, nevertheless it gives get entry to to many extra scenes and as you’ll be able to see in my evaluate, it is a nice price when you already personal a Nanoleaf setup and desire a easy iPhone-free keep watch over way that any one within the family can use.



For other folks unfamiliar with Nanoleaf, the corporate makes the Nanoleaf Light Panels, a HomeEquipment-enabled set of flat, triangle-shaped lighting fixtures that attach in combination in a variety of various user-designed configurations, offering each mild and artwork. The Light Panels have LEDs inside of and may also be set to show dozens of various colours and patterns, which make up other mild recipes.

I have had a Nanoleaf setup for greater than a yr, and it continues to be one of my favourite HomeEquipment merchandise. The Remote is in particular designed for customers who have already got Nanoleaf Light Panels.

Design

Nanoleaf’s Remote has a design that isn’t reasonably like another HomeEquipment-enabled remote-style machine in the marketplace, with dodecahedron form the place each and every aspect turns on a special scene.

The distant, which is somewhat larger than palm sized, is comprised of a white plastic that admittedly feels slightly affordable, nevertheless it does not glance dangerous sitting on a table.

I am not positive how lengthy the batteries are supposed to final, however after about two weeks of use, the battery stage is down to 85 %. I believe the batteries will want to be swapped out each few months, which is analogous to different battery-powered HomeEquipment gadgets I personal.

Setup

Setting up the Remote took not up to 30 seconds the use of the Nanoleaf app, and it was once so simple as the setup for another HomeEquipment product. Under the Remote segment of the app, there is an “Add Accessory” choice, which calls for the HomeEquipment code at the inside the Nanoleaf Remote to be scanned. Once that is whole, the Remote is added to a HomeEquipment setup and scenes may also be set both within the Nanoleaf app or the Home app.
