At CES this year, the original creators of the modular smart lighting category, Nanoleaf revealed five new Matter-compatible smart home products. These new smart lighting products include 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 automation with rich, dynamic and functional lighting to create more ease, convenience, and intelligence in your living spaces.

Here are brief descriptions for each of the five new Matter-compatible devices:

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

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 personalize 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 color-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 personalized automation that delivers your perfect lighting exactly when, how, and where you want it. Enjoy predictive actions like turning your lights on/off, seamless brightness and color 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 smart lighting in their homes. 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.

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 company 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 Wifi, Skylight provides crisp functional white light for everyday use and over 16 million dynamic colors for ambient lighting, with smart features to adjust brightness, colors, color 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 Visualizer, 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 in Q3 2023.

Over the years, GearBrain has tested Nanoleaf's smart modulator lighting products. And after testing these smart devices, we really like how they let customers create their own multi-colored, abstract designs, with unique shapes and abilities — including hexagons that will react to movement in a room. All these can be controlled via wireless connections via Thread Border Routers and your home Wi-Fi Network. We look forward to testing these new smart lighting products in the coming months.
