Nanoleaf Essentials

Welcome to Smarter Living

Congratulations on becoming an official owner of the Nanoleaf Essentials. Thank you for your support, you brighten our day like Nanoleaf brightens the world!

Product Overview
Product Setup

Setting up your Nanoleaf Essentials Bulbs and Lightstrips is quick and easy, so you can enjoy a next level smart lighting experience in no time.

Installing Your Bulb

Make sure your light switch is in the "off" position.

  • 1.

    Screw in the bulb and turn on the light.

  • 2.

    There are no hubs required to use Nanoleaf Essentials products, so once they’re installed you’re ready to pair.

Installing Your Lightstrips

Plan Your Setup

When you’re planning where to install lightstrips, make sure to place the Controller in an easily accessible area. Additionally, if you choose to hide the controller, pair your Lightstrip with your device before installing it, as you’ll need to access the back of the controller during the pairing process if pairing with NFC.

note: Each Lightstrip Controller can power up to 10m of Lightstrips at full brightness. Extending it further will decrease the maximum brightness.

Cutting a Lightstrip

If you need to cut the Lightstrip to make it shorter to fit your space, connect the male end of your Lightstrip to the Controller before making any adjustments (4.1). Cut your Lightstrip from the other end (female side). Make sure to do so along the indicated cut line to avoid damaging your strip (4.2). NOTE: Once cut, the strip cannot be connected back together, so ensure you’ve measured properly before cutting.

Preparing Your Surface

Clean your surface to be free of dust, moisture and oil.

Attaching a Lightstrip

Attach the strip to the Controller, and the Controller to the PSU. Peel back the red tape on the back of the Lightstrip, and firmly stick the Lightstrip onto your surface (5.1). Press firmly along the length of the strip to ensure a strong adhesion (5.2). Plug them in to the power and you're ready to pair (5.3)!

PROBLEMS & SOLUTIONS

Reset Options

If you’re experiencing any issues with your Essentials Bulb, try these steps:

A

Power Cycle

Power cycling your lights by unplugging them from power and then plugging them back in. You can also try to unscrew it from the socket (make sure it's powered off before you do it), and then screw it back in.

B

Bluetooth

Try toggling your Bluetooth off and back on, restarting the app you’re using to control your lights, or restarting your device.

C

Check a Switch

Make sure that your lights weren’t turned off by a physical switch as this would make them powered down and unresponsive.

D

Perform a Reset

This will delete your pairing and network information, so once the reset is performed you will need to pair again. Before performing this reset, delete your Essentials Bulb from your device.


To perform the factory reset on the Essentials Bulb, switch the bulb off, wait for 3 seconds, then switch it back on for no more than 1 second. Repeat this for a total of 5 cycles. If the reset is successful, the Bulb will flash red three times, and then it’s ready to be paired again.


If you’ve performed all of these steps and your issue still persists, please reach out to our support team for further assistance.
