After the official guidelines for the new smart home standard with the Matter 1.0 specification were published in early October, the manufacturers are slowly getting started. Aqara is looking to start upgrading large parts of its existing product range to the new standard as early as December and Nanoleaf has now announced its first Matter-compatible smart home products.
To start, Nanoleaf wants to introduce new lamps with an E27 thread and GU10 base, as well as a new LED light strip. The launch of the products is planned for early 2023 and the manufacturer will also present other new products compatible with Matter in early January.
Famous products in the future with Matter
The E27 bulb is a successor to the A19 bulb presented two years ago in Nanoleaf’s Essentials range, also with the ability to display 16 million colors and display color temperatures between 2,700 and 6,500 Kelvin, in addition to the new ones that supported Standard Matter. In the future, Nanoleaf will also have a new GU10 lamp with the same performance data in the range. In addition, a new version of Nanoleaf’s LED light strip will also be Matter compatible and, like its predecessor, will produce colored and white light with a maximum brightness of 2,220 lumens. The new products will cost between 19.99 euros and 49.99 euros.
It can be assumed that the new versions of the Nanoleaf lamps will again use the combination Bluetooth and Thread as the connection standard, so a HomePod mini or a current Apple TV is required for full integration into the home network, including the possibility of remote control. The Nanoleaf products are fully HomeKit compatible out of the box. Matter then offers the additional option of integrating the devices into other, compatible smart home environments.
