Great news for fans of economical smart home lighting excited about the new Matter smart home standard. Nanoleaf is adding Matter support to its Essentials line.
If you’ve been following our coverage of the Matter smart home standard, you’ve surely seen the shoutouts we’ve given to various lights in Nanoleaf’s Elements lighting lineup.
Nanoleaf was an early supporter of the Matter standard. From the beginning, it pledged support with many of the Elements components ready to support Matter thanks to an integrated Thread radio.
Now that same Matter support is coming to the more economical options in the Nanoleaf stable in the form of new Essential bulbs and light strips. Available in early 2023, the new Essentials lights—in A19, GU10, BR30, and lightstrip form—will cost $19.99 to $99.99 depending on whether you’re buying individual A19 bulbs, lighting kits, or long light strips.
