December 2016 – great product but not compatible with echo v2 at this time. Great product and i cant say much more than has been said by other reviewers. However it is not compatible with echo (at this time the amazon sales page suggests it is)an email from a nanoleaf tech email reads’thanks for your message and my apologies for the confusion. The current iteration of the aurora. Actually doesn’t integrate with amazon alexa. However, we are in development of this product and it is projected to be out in the first quarter of 2017. We are also working on some other awesome new integrations like ifttt, an openapi and flexible connectors for the aurora.For the most up to date information you can sign up for our mailing list at the bottom of our homepage. ‘i must admit to being disappointed by this as this was a strong reason i bought the product. However the product is great as i’ve already said.

Few connection issues due to wifi setup.

Great unique product, app needs some work though. I bought the starter kit, loved it to death. Bought another starter kit and 3 expansion packs, can’t get enough of them. The nanoleaf aurora app (ios) isn’t fantastic though (yet) but i have faith because the product itself is wonderful.

Expensive with a few issues. Not always very responsive by voice control. Siri much much better than alexa. Think about how you’re gonna hide that power cable dangling down. And what stickers to use that don’t ruin the wall when you rearrange it.

Slick, intuitive, versatile. 5 if i could; in general this is a truly excellent smart lighting option, as long as it works (see below). The panels are medium-sized and lightweight, but strong and well-made. Gathered together, they seem heavier than you’d expect, but spread out over a wall they won’t require much strength to hold them up. They fit together surprisingly loosely, so the tolerance for connecting is quite broad. The included double-sided sticky tabs are more than capable of attaching the panels to a wall, with just two or three needed per panel for a very firm and secure fitting. Although only rated for 100 lumens per panel (compare to a hue gen 3 e27 bulb, which maxes out at ~850-900lm), they seem quite bright – just below where it would be unpleasant to look directly at them. The base kit of 9 panels will light a large room quite well, but would not be bright enough for some purposes; nonetheless, this is more than just accent lighting at full power. Panels can be set to any colour (note that brightness varies), or animated with themes, the app providing quite a few options to make your own (smooth transitions, flashing, etc).

If you want to create a full scene or color an entire room, choose this over the philips hue.
Great product, so much fun to play with and the connection with the phone was flawless. Will buy more extension modules.

Surprisingly easy to setup if you follow the provided instructions & videos.
I’m in love with this product. Yes i know, it is not cheap, but if you can spare the coins, buy it. I have paired it with alexa and tp-link.

Easy to use and looks great. . The app can be a bit inconsistent at times but iverall the lighting is excellent. If yiu see oictures of a design where the lights start on the walk and the go onto the ceilling please be aware that this isn’t actually possible as the connectors are extremely brittle. You would need to use 2 control units to achieve this look. I believe that flexible connectors are under consideration by the makers. Can’t synchronise with philps hue which is a shame.

It’s very easy to set up and connect with the app. Was a bit sceptical if the adhesive strips would do their job holding it onto the wall but it sticks to it like glue. The scenes that are preinstalled cater to every mood and you can set up your own like one to wake you up for example. I would definitely recommend this product.

Superb lighting especially with philips hue and amazon alexa. . Now that these lights work with philips hue, siri and amazon alexa, i had to get them to complement my lighting setup. Obviously it’s not cheap to construct this 20 panel shape shown hear. It required 2 smarter kits and an expansion pack. Leaving a spare triangle and complete power supply unit. It’s worth noting that the sticky pads on the smarter kit are more robust than the original tabbed version supplied with the expansion pack and shown in the setup videos on the nanoleaf website. I had no problems adding these to my wifi network and integrating them into my philips hue setup. It’s early days as they have only been up one day but they feel robust on the wall. The app supplied enables a multitude of function from an on/off timer through to individual panel colour control. The built in effects are quite pleasing if you just want to get them on the wall and not spend time messing with the app.

———————————————— impressive kit – a bit expensive but there’s nothing else like it. The nanoleaf aurora (with which i use. This is a review i recently posted to the itunes store, focussing on the nanoleaf smarter series app for iphone and ipad, which is an important part of this kit. However, i reproduce it here as it’s directly relevant to the overall usage of this kit, and covers capabilities and impressions of the hardware too. ————————————————impressive kit – a bit expensive but there’s nothing else like it. The nanoleaf aurora (with which i use this app) is *really* good. Rich even colours, trivially simple assembly, and enough light output to influence the mood of a medium-sized room. The default 9-panel kit is roughly comparable to a 60w incandescent bulb, though some colours are dimmer, and you can add up to 21 more panels – 7 extension kits – to the array to increase the size, flexibility and light output, provided you can afford them – the costs mount up fast. The power supply will handle a total of 30 panels without the brightness of any panel suffering. You can also toggle between predefined themes and animations on the control panel of the kit without using the app.

Smartest, easiest to install, best lighting product ever. It’s the best lighting product i’ve ever gotten. The lighting is so colorful and vibrant, and it’s bright when i need it as reading light, and i can dim it down to a comfortable ambiance when i want some relaxing light to watch a movie, or to get ready for bed. I use this every day now, have it in my living room and bedroom. The sunrise function they have is amazing, it wakes me up like an actual sunrise and i haven’t been using my alarm clock since. It’s been great to use during parties or when people come over, and being able to create whatever color themes i want has been perfect for watching basketball and cheering on our team. Key conclusion is this light will change your life, don’t miss out.

Philips Master LED GU10 4 Watt 3000K Dimmable Energy Saving Bulb : Absolute quality!

Brighter, whiter and amazing wattage savings. Direct replacements for my old gu10 halogens so fitting took seconds. They’re brighter and whiter than halogens and defintely give the room a different feel. I think they’re more directional creating a more spotlight feel. The power savings is the biggest draw – my …
