Nanoleaf's Canvas Can Now Control Your Other HomeKit Devices

The Nanoleaf Canvas, the first touch controlled modular smart lights, is adding “smart button” to its list of skills.


Now, in addition to being a a stylish way to add character to brighten up a boring wall, the Nanoleaf Canvas can be used to trigger your other HomeKit devices or scenes. It’s kind of like if a Philips Hue bulb was flattened into a square and fused with a Logitech Pop.

Nanoleaf’s Touch Actions will offer three options to choose from: single press, double press, and a long press.

You can program these presses to do any number of things, but just as an example, users could trigger a “Good Night” scene with a single tap, turn on a Wemo smart plug with a double press, and open their smart blinds with a long press.


Better still, any square in the system can be turned into a touch-reactive “smart button.” Which means if you own the Smarter Kit, you’ll be able to program 27 different actions with the 9 available lights.

Touch Actions requires an update to the Nanoleaf app and connection to a Home Hub device, like an Apple TV, iPad or HomePod to work.
