Nanoleaf Smart Lighting

Google Assistant Integration

Minimum Requirements

  • Light Panels controller firmware 1.4.39 or higher OR Smarter Hub firmware 1.07 of higher
  • Your own iOS or Android device
  • Google Assistant App installed on your device (version 7.0 or higher)

Tips and Tricks

Keep names simple. Remember that you have to say the name of your device, and Google Assistant has to understand it for everything to work. Short names with fewer syllables are better.

You can ask Google Assistant questions about your lights. Are they on? Off? Working? Ask the Assistant.

Colors, colors, colors. Google Assistant has a big palette to work with, but no list of supported colors. Try out some crazy names! Vermilion is by far our favorite. But remember, ‘white’ is a temperature (not a color) and is thus unsupported.

Google Assistant now supports Scene control. Try activating your favorite Scenes by name!

Open the Nanoleaf Smarter Series App. Navigate to the gears, and make sure that ‘Sync Data with Nanoleaf Cloud’ is toggled on.

Activate Google Assistant

Hold down the Home button (the circle on Android M) and tap ‘Yes’ to activate Google Assistant if not already done.

Configure Assistant

Review the permissions required by Google Assistant, then opt in by tapping ‘YES I’M IN’. Assistant will then collect information that it needs from your device and configure the app automatically. You may be prompted to sign in to your Google Account.

Link Your Nanoleaf Cloud Account

Tap ‘Home Control’ in the main dashboard, then ‘Manage Accounts’ in the context menu (the three vertical dots). Scroll down the list and select ‘Nanoleaf Smarter Series’.

Authorize Assistant

Log into your Nanoleaf Cloud account and tap ‘Allow’ to let Google Assistant send commands to your Nanoleaf devices. Google receives an access token from the Nanoleaf Cloud, but no personally identifiable information.

Tap the device you want to assign to a Room, and then select the room you wish to assign it to. A device can only be assigned to a single room.
