Nanoleaf Unveils Latest Essentials Lights and Collaborates with Umbra for Smart Lighting Solutions

Cupertino, October 12, 2023

Nanoleaf, a lighting company, has recently announced its latest product lineup, which includes the new Essentials lamps and a collaboration with smart lamp design company Umbra. The Essentials Matter GU10 and Essentials Matter Recessed Downlight are designed to replace standard lamps in ceilings and are compatible with smart home platforms that support Matter, such as HomeKit. To seamlessly integrate these lights into a HomeKit setup, a Matter hub like the HomePod mini is required. Both the Essentials Matter GU10 bulbs and recessed downlights are Thread-enabled, allowing for better connectivity and integration with other Thread products. The downlights are ten centimeters in size and can easily replace existing downlights in homes, while the GU10 lamps are suitable for lighting fixtures that use that specific lamp style. Like all Nanoleaf Essential lamps, this new offering supports 16 million colors and offers a range of white temperature options. Users have the flexibility to control the lights through the Nanoleaf app or the Home app within HomeKit. They can also program the lights to turn on at specific times or work in conjunction with other smart home devices using automation features. By grouping multiple lamps together, users can adjust the lighting in entire rooms simultaneously. In addition to the Essentials bulbs, Nanoleaf has collaborated with Umbra to introduce two new smart bulbs that are compatible with Matter. The Cono Portable Lamp features a built-in battery that lasts up to five hours, allowing for easy movement across different rooms. On the other hand, the Cup Lamp is a desk lamp with a USB charging port and a bowl-shaped base that can hold desk accessories. Pre-orders for three GU10 bulbs are currently available for $50, while the recessed downlights cost $35 each. The Cono Portable Lamp is available for pre-order at $95, and the Cup Lamp is set to be released in early 2024 with a price tag of $130.
