You can also use the Controller’s touch buttons for advanced commands—most commands can be executed by holding buttons, or tapping two buttons at once. Here is a full list of shortcuts:

Return to previously random Scene

Only the last 5 randomly loaded Scenes are available. A flash of yellow on the panels will indicate that you are at the end of your browsing history.

Activate Power Diagnostic Mode

If you have more than 20 panels connected to your Controller, this enables or disables Power Diagnostic Mode. This mode helps you place additional power supplies to optimize your Nanoleaf Canvas system.

Pair a Third-Party App

This opens a 30s window to pair.

Hold the Power button for 3 seconds
