Nanoleaf also traveled to Las Vegas with some exciting lighting innovations at CES 2023. Among them the Nanoleaf 4D as TV lighting or the Nanoleaf Skylight as modular ceiling light.
With the Nanoleaf Lines (our review) or the Essentials (our review), the manufacturer launched several innovations and has come up with more exciting ideas for 2023, which they have now presented at CES 2023.
Among them, for example, the Nanoleaf 4D as smart TV lighting, which wants to take on solutions such as Philips Ambilight or that of Govee. The idea: a small camera above the TV monitors what is happening on the screen and passes the information on to the Smart Addressable Lightstrip, which is positioned behind the TV.
The light strip is Matter-compatible and colors the background to match what is happening on the screen. The light strips can be up to five meters long and have up to 50 adjustable light zones (10 light zones per meter length).
You can choose from four lighting modes that react differently to the images on the TV. Thanks to the new Sync+ technology, the lighting can not only be synchronized with what is happening on the TV screen, but also the entire lighting in the Nanoleaf ecosystem can be synchronized and adjusted in certain predefined lighting scenes such as “Aurora Borealis” or “Vibrant Sunrise”.
The Nanoleaf 4D TV Smarter Kit is expected to be available in the second quarter of 2023 and will be offered in two different length options for TVs from 55-65 inches, as well as 65-85 inches.

Nanoleaf Skylight: Modular Ceiling Light
Joining them is the Nanoleaf Skylight, the first ceiling light from the manufacturer to rely on a modular design, as we already know from the wall panels. Of course, the Skylight is also Matter-compatible and thus provides you with a variety of customization options.
The ceiling light is composed of freely combinable, square RGBW LED panels, with which you can create your own look. It is operated via Wi-Fi and can display just about anything from a clear, functional white tone to 16 million dynamic colors.
Not only can you adjust the brightness, but also the color, color temperature, or a lighting schedule, so you can determine, for example, what time of day the Nanoleaf Skylight should shine in which colors.
Smart features such as the Rhythm Music Visualizer, Screen Mirror, dynamic lighting scenes or group scenes are also offered. At the same time, the ceiling light serves as a thread border router and has integrated Sense+ sensors that offer motion and ambient light detection. The Nanolead Skylight is scheduled to launch in the third quarter of 2023.
Sense+ Controls with Automatic Learning Assistant
The Nanoleaf Sense+ Control range of three products is also exciting. It is composed of Smart Light Switch, Wireless Smart Light Switch and Nala Learning Bridge, which are also Matter-enabled and run on Thread. They are said to provide the world’s first smart lighting control in one’s own home and work without touching thanks to built-in motion and ambient light sensors.
The Nala Learning Bridge acts as a Thread border router and can also be used as a color-changing nightlight that emits a light glow effect. Thanks to the new intelligent “automation learning assistant” called Nala, Nanoleaf’s Sense+ products learn your personal preferences and routines over time, independently creating automations to adjust lighting.
This is said to predict when lighting will turn on and off, as well as seamless brightness across all compatible products, and color adjustments and lighting scenes based on personal preferences.
“Over time, this will give users a truly smart and touchless experience with smart lighting in their home,” the manufacturer promises. For this, the Nanoleaf Sense+ Controls won the CES Innovation Awards – the launch is scheduled for the third quarter of 2023.
Nanoleaf Essentials light fixtures and light strips with Matter
There are also innovations in the Nanoleaf Essentials line-up, which will become compatible with the Matter standard with A19, BR30, GU10 and a recessed light fixture, as well as new light strips. This should allow the light sources to be easily integrated into the scenes and display various lighting effects. Here, the launch will take place as early as the first quarter of 2023, but the manufacturer does not provide further details.
However, they announce that the entire line-up of modular light panels such as Shapes, Elements, Canvas and Lines will also be upgraded to Matter during 2023.
