Nanoleaf launches Essentials Bulb and Lightstrip exclusively at Apple

Cupertino, November 11, 2020

Nanoleaf has announced the launch of two new smart lighting products, the Essentials A19 and Essentials Lightstrip bulbs. The latest Nanoleaf accessories offer affordable, colorful lighting options with a simple setup process that works with the Apple HomeKit.

"As we continue to push the boundaries of what smart lighting can do, Essentials has been the next natural step in making sure we meet all consumers' smart lighting needs, especially for everyday lighting, now that we spend more "At Essentials, we make smart lighting more accessible to everyone, with options that can be tailored to each user's individual activities during the day."

The Nanoleaf A19 bulb includes intelligent lighting standards, such as support for over 16 million colors, dimming and adjustable color temperature, but has a unique Rhombicosidodecahedron design. Other important hardware elements include a maximum brightness of 1,100 lumens, a life expectancy of 25,000 hours and Bluetooth connectivity.

The Nanoleaf Essentials Lightstrip, which comes in an 80-inch starter kit, supports the same 16 million colors, dimming capabilities and Bluetooth as the A19 bulb, but can reach a maximum brightness of 2,200 lumens. The Lightstrip can be cut every 13 inches for shorter installations and can be extended up to 32 feet by expansion kits while maintaining maximum brightness levels.

Through the Nanoleaf application, both Essentials products support remote controls, programming options and additional elements such as Circadian Lighting. The Circadian Lighting option allows the Essentials line to automatically adjust color temperatures throughout the day, similar to Apple's recently launched HomeKit adaptive lighting feature, which Nanoleaf intends to accept in future firmware updates.

In addition to connecting to the Nanoleaf app, HomeKit and the Google Assistant via Bluetooth, the Essentials line is the first consumer product to support the wireless Thread network. Thread is a low-power network protocol, which Nanoleaf says offers improved reliability, network-to-network and a wider range of control. While compatible hardware is rare at the moment, the future Apple HomePod mini includes Thread onboard, which will allow it to connect directly to the Essentials line.

Nanoleaf Smart Lighting Essentials are now available exclusively at Apple stores worldwide and online, starting at $ 19.99 for the A19 bulb. Nanoleaf Essentials Lightstrip retails for $ 49.99, with additional 40-inch expansion kits available for $ 24.99 each.
