As Nanoleaf CEO Gimmy Chu already announced in our interview, the company is releasing a new edition of its Essentials products. The LED lamp and the LED lightstrip again work with the Thread radio protocol and also look exactly like their predecessors. Inside, however, a new, more powerful chipset is at work, making the bulbs compatible with the smart home standard Matter. As usual, the two can emit light in 16 million colors or a dimmable white with color temperatures between 2700-6500K. Beyond the Matter repertoire, they feature dynamic, color-changing light scenes that can be customized and adjusted in the Nanoleaf app.
The manufacturer names the first quarter of 2023 as the delivery date, when the Matter-compatible Essentials should be available worldwide in Nanoleaf’s online store. Prices start from 20 US-Dollars. At the CES electronics trade show in Las Vegas in January, further innovations are also to be on display. An Essentials lamp with directional light and GU10 base as well as BR30 bulbs have already appeared on the Internet.
