Looks really good on my wall , i like it a lot
The Nanoleaf expansion is great I just wish you could buy the 90° lines connectors separately like you can with the 60° ones
Super easy to install and works perfectly
The Nanoleaf Lines are smart, lightweight, 26-centimeter LED light strips that can be plugged together in a completely modular way. Mounting on the wall and ceiling is possible. The individual light strips can thus be connected to each other at 60-degree angles to form different layouts and geometric shapes, and shine onto the wall from the rear. As the name suggests, the new Squared model now offers the option of placing the LED strips at a 90-degree angle.
The difference lies in the plug connection. Nothing has changed in the LED strips themselves compared to the previous lines. The controller and the power supply are also identical. Thus, the new Nanoleaf Lines Squared also benefit from the announced firmware update to version 7.1. which is designed to reduce energy consumption.
18 lines can be operated from a single power supply. If you want to connect more than 18 lines, you need a stronger power supply. Nanoleaf offers an online power supply calculator that gives you the exact number of power supplies needed for your layout. You can link up to 250 lines in a layout and operate them all from a single control unit.
What’s exciting about using the Lines now is the combination of the 60-degree and new 90-degree connectors in one design. Although the manufacturer does not explicitly state this as a possibility anywhere, the interaction of the connectors with the controller firmware and the app seems to work. In our experiment, the Nanoleaf app automatically detected the arrangement of our tangled structure.
As usual, the new Nanoleaf Lines Squared are quickly and easily integrated into your Apple home. With all Nanoleaf lights particularly practical, the animated light scenes from the Nanoleaf app are also made available in HomeKit. Thus, the start of such a light scene is also possible via Siri and automations.
Not sure why it took Nanoleaf so long to develop these, they were sorely needed in the past. They function just like the standard junction blocks, which means you should expect the cover retainers to break if you so much as look at them wrong, and Nanoleaf does not over replacement covers sold separately. I’m left with glue or tape to keep my extremely expensive lighting system in held together. The adaptive lighting system is completely non-functional even when allowing for the lengthy calibration process that is called for. The insult to injury is that I got an email prompt to review this product, which I purchased only three weeks ago, and I see that it’s on sale now. It’s over-priced even at the sale price so I’m overall highly disappointed.
