Nanoleaf Lines | Unboxing, Setup & Review
Today we are going to be adding some color and design to my studio setup with Natalies latest wall decoration product, the nanoleaf lines. Now, full disclosure natively for kind enough to send me two of their smarter kits, and I ended up purchasing a third kit myself to complete the look that I was going for. So thank you to them. Each starter kit comes with nine line segments and everything you will need to get started, and this will cost you around 199 dollars. Nanoleaf also sells an expansion kit, which comes with only three line segments. If you want to expand your design over time, will cost you around sixty dollars. So for me, I will have a total of 27 lines to play with and to decorate my walls. So what makes the lines different than the rest of nanoleafs light products besides the shape? Well, it comes down to the direction. The light is thrown the lights in the colors from the lines are shot towards the wall and will reflect back versus facing directly out at you. This adds a very unique and subtle design Style versus flashy RGB lighting, giving it a very clean look alright, so lets go ahead and unbox these lines and take a look at what comes in side right. On top, we have a promotional card, introducing you to lines and on the back, some design ideas to get. You started with your new kit, underneath you will find the nine individual line segments and underneath that youll have an instruction manual and lastly, at the bottom you will have the nine Apex points and the power supply now comes the most fun, but probably the hardest.
Part of all this committing to a design pattern for your space nanoleaf does provide you with a card to give you some idea options, but to really help you make your own and unique look. Nanoleafs mobile app has a layout assistant which allows you to make a virtual pattern in the app and then use the built in AR technology to throw it up on the wall. To give you an idea of what that design is going to look like, and you can go beyond the nine lines that come in one box for your design. Remember I have three starter kits so thats a total of 27 lines and inside the mobile app. I was able to string together 27 lines in different design patterns until I found the one that I like the AR really helps with the layout and design. It gives a perfect sense of scale. For your final setup, I started to assemble my design on the floor, which I then used in larger segments to apply them to the wall. Now a few things to keep in mind before you start mounting the lines to your wall. You need to think about which Apex point is going to be. Your primary power supply point so make sure that is somewhere low in your design pattern, so the cable is hidden also – and this is very important. One power supply can power up to 18 lines Max and with me having three starter kits that totals 27 lines, so that means I will have to be supplying two power points in my design, for it to function properly.
Installing the lines can be a little tricky, especially trying to get them perfectly straight and balanced. First, I need to move my current desk setup out of the way, as I plan, to put the lights on my black accent wall. Next, I use a laser leveler on a tripod to get the perfect balance and height of where to get started. On the back of the Apex points, there is some adhesive already attached. All you need to do is pull off the cover to expose the sticky end and place the Apex point on the wall. Next, you will attach a line segment to the Apex point. After that add another Apex point to the opposite end and rinse and repeat until you have your design pattern up now through this process, I also use a bubble leveler just to make sure everything was straight after you have the Apex points and the lines installed. The last step is to clip on the Apex covers, and one of them is the actual control panel to turn the lights on and off and adjust brightness syncing, Wi, Fi and other features. And there you go. Your brand new nail Leaf lines are now up and running. Next, we have to pair setup to the nanoleaf app. All we have to do is open up the nanoleafab and hold the RF power strip to our phone or scan the QR code, and the pairing process is started and within minutes you are good to go within the app you can control the colors of your lines With custom color choices using the color wheel or entering hex codes or setting up scenes which will adjust your entire setup to Unique predefined Colors by default, there are 19 pre loaded scenes that come pre installed and ready to go.
You can also select scenes and color patterns that are created by other users, and there are thousands of presets to choose from so youll definitely find one that you like. You can quickly switch between presets and change the mood and look of your setup instantly. The lines also come with a built in microphone which allows them to react to music and sound utilizing the music visualizer feature. This allows your patterns to move and dance to the audio. It picks up in the room, or you can also select the screen mirroring feature which allows the colors of the lights. To sync, to the colors of your monitor, you will need to download the nanoleaf desktop app to access this feature. There are four different screen mirroring effects and the difference between them is how quickly and intensely the colors match and change. So, ultimately, you can choose between fast flashy lights or a slower, smoother immersive effect. So when it comes to controls, you have multiple options. You can either use the manual onboard buttons. You can use the nanoleaf mobile or desktop application. Lastly, you compare these lights with your smart home setup such as homekit, Alexa or Google home, allowing to use your voice to control your new lights, and you can also use an Elgato stream deck if you have that integrated into your setup. So, ultimately, all the bases are covered and theres definitely an option out there for you now that we have everything working, I love the way.
These lines look both on and off, and I love the honeycomb pattern which allows me to spread the lights all throughout my wall, but I will admit there is a lot of dead space in between these lines. So I plan on adding something extra which would also provide some wall shelves and display plates. I ordered these hexagonal wall shells off of Amazon. They come in sets of three in various different sizes and plan to place them in between the line patterns. Also, to give it a more earthy, Vibe and natural look, I picked up a few plants and desktop accessories to add them around the lights shelves and desks. Overall, I really like the way these nanoleaf lines function individually as a product, but also how my overall setup has come along heres. What my studio looked like before. I installed the nanoleaf lines and heres what it looks like now: its definitely a show stopper and an attention grabber, the second you step into the room. I can instantly change the mood and the vibe of the room, and I absolutely love that whether I want a chill workspace where the lines are reacting to music, while Im working or screen mirroring your lights during intense gaming session. This is definitely a much needed upgrade that my studio is missing. Ive been adding functional upgrades mostly, but this is the first major visual upgrade that Ive done, which I really think takes my setup to the next level and adds instant visual appeal as well.
