Mounting Your Lines


Prepare Your Surface

The Nanoleaf Lines should only be installed indoors and on a flat surface that can support the weight of the Lines. Clean your surface to be free of dust, moisture and oil. The included Mounting Tape is NOT recommended for textured, porous surfaces (ie. wallpaper or brick walls), popcorn walls /ceilings, and mirrors. See detailed guide for celing installations here.


Build Your Layout

Design your layout on a table without any connectors for convenience. Once you are happy with your design, secure your Lines into the mounting connectors with the connector caps.

note: the Controller Cap with buttons can be attached to any Connector.


Connect the Power Supply

Plug it into power to make sure your Lines turn on and are working properly.

note: Each standard 42W Power Supply supports up to 18 Lines.


Mount Your Lines

Grab a friend to help with mounting your layout (4.1). For the best results, mount your layout all at once. For larger designs, mount in sections, be sure to mount closed-loop layouts together (triangles, hexagons, etc.). Carefully lift up your Lines layout and peel off the mounting tape covers from the back of the mounting connectors. Press each mounting connectors against the wall for 30 seconds to secure your layout to the wall (4.2)


Ceiling Installation

For a more secure installation, use the included screw mounting solution (screws not included) for your ceiling installs.

note: the included screw mounting solution is designed for SMOOTH surfaces/ceilings only.

Remove the light lines then pull Mounting Connectors off to reveal the Mounting Plates (5.1). Mark the screw holes (5.2) and remove the mounting plate (5.3). See below how to safely remove Mounting Plates. Then drill pilot holes and install anchors. Please proceed with extra caution for hole alignment, large screw mount tolerance offset may lead to disruption of closed loop layout assemblies (5.4). Fasten Mounting Plate to anchors with screws (5.4). Once secured, attach the light lines and Mounting Connectors back onto the Mounting Plate.


Need to Dismount Your Lines?

Gently snap off the Connector Caps, then gently remove the light lines from the Mounting Connectors (1). Pull the Mounting Connectors perpendicularly away from the attached surface (2). The Mounting Plate will remain on the wall. With one hand on the Mounting Plate, use your other hand to pull the end of tape along the wall until fully removed (3).

note: Do not pull perpendicularly or at any other angle, otherwise you may damage your wall (2).

note: Need more Mounting Tape? Purchase more here.

Controlling Your Lines

Controller Cap

The touch control buttons on the Controller Cap provide convenient shortcuts to common commands. The Controller Cap can be attached to any Mounting Connector.

  • Cycle through Default or Saved Rhythm Scenes.

  • Cycle through Default or Saved Color Scenes.

  • Lines come with dozens of preloaded Scenes. Hold the Shuffle button to return to a previous random Scene.

Advanced Button Controls

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:

  • Press & Hold the Shuffle button for 3s

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

  • Press & Hold the Next Color Scene button for 3s

    This saves the current Scene if it’s not already saved. This is most useful for saving Scenes you like when using Shuffle.

  • Tap the Dim & Brighten buttons together once

    Cycle through the following preset white light modes: Warm White (2700K), Reading Light (4000K), Daylight White (5000K).

  • Hold Power button for 5s

    This opens a 30s window to pair your devices.

  • Hold Power & Rhythm buttons for 30s

    This mode allows your Controller to act as a local network hotspot without an Internet connection. With this mode active, you can use the Nanoleaf App to operate your Nanoleaf Lines without needing a router or access point.

NOTE: During Wi-Fi Hospot Mode, your Lines will not be able to download firmware updates. Discover content from the community will also be unavailable.

The Nanoleaf App

Turn your lighting on and off, control brightness, create schedules, group lights by home and by room, create and use Scenes, and much more.

  • Automate your Scenes to turn on or off.

The Desktop App was designed to simplify the management of larger installations and offer control of many different layouts at once.
