Nanoleaf is acknowledged for making expensive, but amazing, light-weight panels of numerous designs and measurements that can be personalized to demonstrate off your favorite shades, respond to what is on your gaming computer’s display screen or set the scene for movie night time. Personally, I use some Nanoleaf panels in a household automation set up that turns the sq. panels into a purpose light-weight when I’m seeing hockey. 

But when the panels are turned off, the off-white color doesn’t necessarily blend in. On Thursday, Nanoleaf announced a new line of clever household light-weight panels that move absent from what the business is at this time acknowledged for. 

The to start with products in the Nanoleaf Aspects line is the Wooden Search Hexagons, which, as the title indicates, have a wooden grain glimpse on their entrance. Alternatively of RBG lights, Nanoleaf has gone with additional classic white lighting, with solutions ranging from 1500-4000K (great to warm light-weight). 

I’ve been screening the Wooden Search Hexagons for a couple of months, and whilst the wooden color doesn’t match nearly anything in my business, I enjoy the new approach. Even however I knew the panels featured lights in every single corner of the hexagon that could light-weight up or change light-weight temperature independently of just one a further, it was not right up until I put in the panels and turned them on for the to start with time that I recognized how crucial that aspect is.

By allowing for every single corner to light-weight up on its very own, you can even now get the similar interactive experience and effects of the additional colorful Designs, Canvas or Mild Panels. 

I connected the panels to my HomeKit set up and connected them to my business light-weight swap to switch on or off primarily based on my overhead lights. There are numerous distinct lighting scenes obtainable for the Aspects, every single of which has a distinct glimpse. I picked the Calming Waterfall lighting choice, which utilizes numerous lights to mimic a waterfall of lights that move slowly but surely back and forth across the panels. 

There are numerous additional scenes that arrive with Aspects, and you can produce your very own mix of lighting effects. 

Nanoleaf is taking orders for Aspects proper now, with the base package priced at $299. That will get you everything you need to install the provided 7 panels. For $ninety nine you can get an growth pack that adds a further 3 panels, and also involves everything you need to insert them to your existing set up. Orders will start transport now, but Nanoleaf has stated that stock is confined. If you never purchase before they market out, Greatest Buy will have the new panels later this thirty day period.
