Nanoleaf announced today that it plans to open Thread support to all Thread over HomeKit products, expanding the Thread ecosystem for improved connectivity and reliability of HomeKit devices. With an update coming in Q1 2022, Nanoleaf will enable its Thread Border Routers, which include the Nanoleaf Shapes, Elements and Lines, to work with all Thread across HomeKit devices. Some Threads on HomeKit devices include the Nanoleaf Essentials Bulb and Lightstrip, the Apple TV 4K, and various Thread-enabled Eve products. Nanoleaf says it will be the first company after Apple to open Thread Border Routing to all Thread across HomeKit devices, paving the way for a faster and more reliable smart home. Thread technology creates a low-latency mesh network between devices to reduce disconnections and improve connection speeds and responsiveness. Any device that supports Thread in a smart home configuration strengthens the Thread ecosystem. The update also allows Nanoleaf to prepare for the Matter over Thread devices that will be launched later this year. Matter is a new connectivity standard intended to improve the interoperability of smart home devices, and is supported by Apple, Amazon, Google, Samsung and others. Nanoleaf says it is working with the Connectivity Standards Alliance to build Matter support into both current and future product lines. Nanoleaf's first Matter-compatible devices will be launched in late 2022.
