Smart home vendor Nanoleaf will introduce three Matter compatible smart lighting options and its new Orchestrator software that creates a color and light show to real-time music.

The smart lights will run the gamut across the home including the outdoors, indoors and gaming and music lighting.

“In 2024 and beyond, all successful connected products will use Matter for basic smart home platform control,” Gimmy Chu, CEO at Nanoleaf told Electronics360. “Our belief is that Matter is the main catalyst to unlock mass adoption in the smart home.”

Chu said Nanoleaf is expanding its Matter-compatible line up this year with several new smart multicolor lights, both for indoor and outdoor use that includes addressable light strips, outdoor lights and permanent outdoor lights. The company is also launching its Sense+ line of products including a wired and wireless smart light switch. Nanoleaf’s Sense+ line is targeted at automating a home’s lighting for both motion and ambient light sensing. These will all be Matter compatible, Chu said.

Further into 2024, Nanoleaf said it will likely roll out many more Matter-compatible devices across all categories.

“From the beginning, we’ve viewed Matter as a new foundation that standardizes how devices talk to each other,” Chu said. “This means companies don’t need to spend extra efforts connecting with new and exciting smart home apps — if they use Matter, basic control is already covered.”

The benefit here is that vendors can focus on developing core differentiating features for the smart home instead of worrying about how it will connect to other devices in the home, Chu said.


The software platform matches light shows with real-time music analysis and beat detection. Orchestrator connects directly with a computer’s sound source and isolates the response to the device for an accurate real-time audio-visual experience.

It also synchronizes and designs custom lighting for personal playlists and favorite songs, Nanoleaf said.

Previously, Nanoleaf had its rhythm feature that reacts to sound, Orchestrator reacts to music as it picks up on beats, melodies and audio spectrum to generate visuals that match the music, the company said.

Modular ceiling lighting

Nanoleaf is officially launching its Skylight technology as well. It first showcased the lighting at CES 2023, and the modular ceiling fixture provides lighting with a 2,700 K to 6,500 K color temperature range and 1,400 lumens per panel.

“Skylight is a standalone smart lighting product and is also built to work seamlessly with other smart lighting within the Nanoleaf ecosystem to elevate the way you experience light in your home,” Chu said. “Users can connect all Nanoleaf’s RGB devices together with Sync+, set Schedules for easy automations throughout the home and even have all of the lights react to music."
