How to Set up Nanoleaf Light Panels and Lines with Apple Homekit, Google Home, Amazon Alexa and Samsung SmartThings Smart Assistants
Dec 07, 2021
With a simple voice command and smart technology, your smart assistants can help you control your entire home. You can adjust your lights, thermostat, lock your door, check the weather forecast and more. With Nanoleaf, make your daily life easier by connecting your Nanoleaf devices (Shapes, Elements, Lines) to your smart assistants to help customize the lighting around your home!
What Are Smart Assistants?
Smart assistants—also known as virtual assistants—are a form of software installed in a smart speaker or smartphone that can perform tasks, services, or answer questions. They can also be used to control other smart devices just by using our voices! You can control your Nanoleaf lights with Smart Assistants like your Google Assistant, Google Home, Amazon Alexa, Apple HomeKit, and Samsung SmartThings. Here’s how to get it all set up!
Let’s get started by showing you how to connect to HomeKit and Siri. You’ll need an Apple HomeKit device that acts as a Home Hub such as a HomePod, HomePod mini, Apple TV, or iPad, as well as your Nanoleaf light.
Make sure that your Nanoleaf device is connected to power, and that your HomeKit device is connected to your smartphone.
Open the Home App, and tap the ‘+’ symbol at the top of the screen.
Tap ‘Add an accessory,’ and enter the pairing code for your Nanoleaf device. For Shapes and Elements, this can be found on the back of the controller and power supply. For Lines, it can be found on the back of the processor (you can either use the camera to scan it, or manually enter the 8 digit pairing code). It’ll take a moment to connect, then you can pick a room location for the light.
After that, choose a custom name for your Nanoleaf light which can be used for voice commands.
Once you’ve entered a name, tap ‘continue,’ and you’ll be able to choose different light automations.
Tap ‘continue’ again, then ‘Done,’ and voila, your Nanoleaf device is not connected to the Home App and Siri!
If you want to enjoy your time without any extra fuss, say “Hey Siri, it’s break time.” and watch as your lights change to a warm orange tone with 70% brightness, your connected blinds lower, and relaxing music starts to play.
2. Control Your Lights With Google Nest Smart Assistants
Next, we’ll show you how to connect to Google Smart Assistants devices, such as the Google Home, Home Mini, and Nest Audio. You’ll need your smartphone, your Nanoleaf light connected to power, your Google Home Hub Device, and the Google Home App:
Once you’re ready, open the Google Home App. At the top left of the screen, tap the ‘+’ button, then ‘Set Up Device,’ followed by ‘Set up new devices.’
Then choose a home to set up your Nanoleaf light, and tap ‘Next’.
Select ‘Set up smart lights’ and choose the lights that you want to connect. Once they’re selected, they will blink.
Then, you can choose a room for your lights. Once you’ve done that, click ‘Next’.
You can then create a name for your light that can be used for voice commands.
Tap ‘Next’ once you’ve chosen a name, and your light will begin to set up.
Tap ‘Done’ at the bottom right corner. You can now control your Nanoleaf lights from your Google Home devices and with voice control!
If you’re looking to set up your lights with the Google Assistant App, the setup is slightly different but don’t worry—we have instructions for that as well! This will allow you to use voice control straight from your phone without the use of a Smart Assistant speaker:
To get started, open the App, and tap on your username icon at the top right corner of the dashboard.
Scroll down, and select ‘Home Control.’ Then, tap the ‘+’ button at the bottom right to add a device.
Search for Nanoleaf Smarter Series, then you’ll be redirected to a login page. Enter your Nanoleaf account info, then tap ‘allow’ to let Google control your Nanoleaf devices.
When it’s finished loading, tap ‘back’ at the top left corner, and you’ll now notice that your Nanoleaf device is now connected.
If you tap on it, you can give it a nickname for voice commands!
Now, you can send voice commands directly from your phone, by saying “Okay Google” and giving a command.
You can now control your Nanoleaf products using just your voice with Google. To light up your home using your Nanoleaf lights, just say “Ok Google” followed by a command like “turn on [Device Name or Scene Name]”, “turn on/off the lights in [Room Name]”, or “brighten/dim [Device Name]”. When you’re ready to wind down for the night, say “Ok Google, Good Night” and watch as the lights turn off, your smart blinds lower and your thermostat gets set to your ideal temperature by creating your own custom Scene. To help wake you up in the morning, say “wake my lights at 6 am” and have your lights slowly brighten with ‘Gentle Wake’ which brightens your lights over a period of 30 minutes to imitate the sunrise!
Don’t worry, we didn’t forget about all of you using Amazon Alexa! To get started, just open the Alexa App, and tap the Devices tab at the bottom:
Then, tap the ‘+’ button at the top right corner, followed by ‘Your Smart Home Skills.’
Tap ‘Enable Smart Home Skills’ at the bottom, and then look for Nanoleaf in the options.
Select it, then tap ‘Enable to use’. You’ll then be redirected to log into your Nanoleaf account.
Enter your info, and tap ‘Allow’, to let Alexa control your device.
Alexa will then look for devices to connect, and once it’s complete, tap ‘Done’ at the bottom.
If you tap Lights in the Device tab, your Nanoleaf lights should now be connected through Alexa!
With Amazon Alexa, you can set up the Alexa Skill on the device you use most often to control your Nanoleaf lights. You can also create a ‘Group’ in the Alexa App called ‘My [Room] Lights’ to turn on or off all your smart lights in a room at once. Right when you wake up, say ‘Alexa, turn on my bedroom lights’ and watch as all your lights in your room turn on for the day! Or you can say “Alexa, turn down the brightness of my bedroom lights” and watch as your lights dim for the evening to help you wind down for bed.
Last but not least, if you’re using a Samsung device, you can use Samsung SmartThings to control your lights:
Open the SmartThings app, and tap the ‘+’ to add a device at the top right corner.
Scroll down and select ‘Lighting’. Scroll down again and select Nanoleaf, then tap ‘Nanoleaf Smarter Series’.
You’ll be redirected to the Nanoleaf account login page. Enter your account info, then press ‘login’.
On the next page, tap ‘Allow’, to let Samsung control your devices.
Tap ‘done’ when your connection is established, then tap done again at the bottom right corner.
Press the ‘back’ button, until you reach the main dashboard, and now you’re good to go on SmartThings!
If you’re on a Samsung device, you can use voice control with Bixby.
If you tap the ‘Menu’ button at the bottom right, then tap ‘voice assistant’, you can then select either of the two and use the same voice commands previously mentioned!
Using your SmartThings App, set your Nanoleaf lights to turn on once your TV turns on or have your lights turn on when motion is detected. You can also control your lights with Bixby, just say “Hi, Bixby run the Good Morning Scene in my bedroom” and watch as your lights display your favorite color Scene to help wake you up!
Experience Dynamic Nanoleaf Scenes with Smart Assistants
With Nanoleaf lights, you can also create or explore hundreds of dynamic Scenes and turn them on just with the sound of your voice! If you want to use voice control for Scenes in the Nanoleaf App:
Start by opening the app and from the main dashboard, tap the ‘3 shapes’ icon at the top.
From this menu, you can make group Scenes that will sync to HomeKit, Google Home, Google Assistant, and Alexa.
Press the ‘+’ button at the top right, and give your Scene a name.
Press the ‘+’ on the right to select the devices you want the Scene to apply to, then swipe down.
Tap the device to choose the scene, as well as the brightness that you want then tap save!
So there you have it, setting up your Nanoleaf lights with your Smart Assistant is a piece of cake! Now it’s time to experience all the unique features and see just how far you can customize your smart home with your Nanoleaf lights.

Essential Functions & Legitimate Interest
The below services are essential to the function of this website, and cannot be disabled without breaking your browsing experience. They're designed to process data in your browser only ("first party"), and to not transmit information to our servers or to third party servers (with the exception of if you choose to log into our website, as explained in more detail below).
Data Exchange With Third Parties
The below services and use cases refer to direct agreements with third-party vendors which may process data (processors) on our behalf (as a sub-processor). We take care to select vendors who have appropriate protections in place around the handling of personally-identifiable information, and describe the related interactions in plain language to the best of our ability. Links to vendor privacy policies and vendor opt-outs can be found in the "Data Vendors" section.
We use Google Analytics to analyze aggregate behavior on our website, with the goal of using these aggregated data sets to improve user experience, website performance, and relevance of the content that we publish. We do not use the user-id-session collection function, and do not analyze individual user sessions using Google Analytics. We do create remarketing lists with Google Analytics, which at aggregate are used to improve the relevance of paid advertising for users who have not opted out of data collection with Google (please see the "Data Vendors" tab for opt-out instructions). These lists cannot be used by Nanoleaf to personally identify you. On the European locales of our website, IP addresses are anonymised by local servers before data is processed by Google Analytics. Please note that anonymised data may be sent to these third countries : United States, Canada, Hong Kong.
Data is Anonymised : Yes Data Storage Locations : France, Canada, United States, Hong Kong Data Usage Purposes : Technical Analysis, Marketing To disable the collection of data for processing with Google Analytics, you can install the opt-out tool here
We use Google Optimize to analyze aggregate visitor preferences and help determine whether the content which we publish on our website is useful for visitors. This includes "A/B" and "Multivariant" tests of content and website design/layout. The information collected through this analysis is of an aggregate, anonymous nature (user-id-session is not collected).

We use Google Ads to promote our products and services in various countries, including the United Kingdom and the member states of the European Union. Ad products which we utilize include AdWords (text and search), Display (banner), and various formats of video advertising units on YouTube. Google Ads is a subprocessor of aggregate data collected via Google Analytics and shared with Google Ads in an anonymised manner (user-id-session is not transmitted, since it is not collected). Ad personalization signals are disabled by default for users in the EU and UK. This prevents the use of remarketing and retargeting advertisements unless a visitor has opted in for this use.
We use Facebook Connect to record behavioral activity related to sales, and to improve the relevance of marketing and advertising to "look-alike cohorts". In practice, this means that an anomymous Facebook user-id is generated after the completion of a sale and sent to Facebook to attribute against a set of user data in their posession. At aggregate, this data is used to improve the targeting of advertising to visitors on Facebook, Instagram, and other properties owned by Meta (primarily by identifying "like" users on these platforms who may find the advertisements relevant).
We use Twitter Connect to record certain behavioral actions on Twitter (for example, link clicks to our website) and analyze the associated behaviors on our website with the goal of improving the experience that visitors have, and determine which content is relevant. This data is aggregated and anonymous in nature, individual user sessions are not analyzed and Nanoleaf cannot attribute this data to its own personally-identifiable data stored in user accounts for Nanoleaf services.
We use Funnelytics to determine the success of marketing campaigns in aggregate, on narrowly-defined sets of website landing pages and purchase checkouts. This data is aggregated and anonymous in nature, and cannot be used by Nanoleaf to personally identify a visitor to our website.
We use Shopify to process purchases on our website in a PCI DSS compliant checkout environment which meets PSD2 requirements as required by law in the European Union. All payment transactions are processed in France, and are compliant with national law as well as the regulations proscribed by the European Commission. When you make a purchase on the Nanoleaf Shop, data essential to the processing and fulfillment of your purchase is shared with Shopify (the processor) and accessed by Nanoleaf as required to fulfill your order (the sub-processor). Purchase data is aggregated and processed by Nanoleaf for reporting purposes (these reports are not shared with other parties under any circumstances). Personally-identifiable information is used only to provide order fulfillment and customer service (either at your request, or proactively when we identify in advance service or logistics disruptions which may impact you). All data collected and stored on Shopify's servers is subject to the right to be forgotten, and you may request deletion of such data at any time by contacting us to initiate the request on your behalf. After a request has been initiated, Shopify will communicate with you directly solely in regards to the progress of your data deletion request. Please see the ""Data Vendors"" section for more information.
Data is Anonymised: No Data Storage Locations: France, Canada, Hong Kong, Japan, Vietnam Data Usage Purposes: Order Processing and Fulfillment Please note that personally-identifiable information for EU and UK customers is stored in France, and may be sub-processed in Canada.
