At CES 2022, Nanoleaf announced an upcoming firmware update that will allow its products to act as Thread boundary routers for all HomeKit over Thread devices. The new firmware update, expected to roll out in Q1 2022, extends support for Thread beyond what Nanoleaf's products are currently capable of. After the update, Shapes, Lines and Elements will be able to act as Thread edge routers for the Nanoleaf Essentials Bulb & Lightstrip, Apple TV 4K, Eve's Thread-enabled products and Wemo's Stage scene controller. Future Thread devices that support HomeKit will also work. This makes Nanoleaf the only company, after Apple, to act as Thread border routers for HomeKit devices. Aside from Nanoleaf's hardware, the only other options users have are HomePod mini or the latest Apple TV 4K. Thread creates a low-power mesh network between devices that can self-heal if a device goes offline. A Thread border router connects your Thread devices to your home network. Nanoleaf says it is also working to support Matter in its existing and future products. The first Nanoleaf product to support Matter is expected in the second half of 2022.
