New Nanoleaf Accessories Now Available For Your Nanoleaf Bulbs!

Hi Backers!

We're excited to let you know that after getting high volume of requests, we have created two design-centric lighting accessories to go with your Nanoleaf bulbs! These are now exclusively available on our Nanoleaf webstore.

We understand that it can be hard to find a good fixture to best showcase the Nanoleaf bulbs, but worry no more, because we've solved that issue with our very own Nanoleaf Lamp and Nanoleaf Pendant. Both created just as sustainably as all of our lighting products, and designed to fully showcase the unique designs of your Nanoleaf bulbs. :)

Currently only available for North America, but if you are from another region of the world and would like to see these available in your area, then please leave us a comment! If we get enough demand for it, then we'll make it happen! We'd also love to know your feedback so that we can continue to improve and create more value for you, our beloved supporters.

Nanoleaf Lamp

Forget lamp shades and covered fixtures, our bulbs were made to be shown off. Crafted with sustainably sourced high quality wood, this lamp base offers a beautiful way to light up your home.

Shout-out: K Kit

Great news! Remember when we told you guys about our friends at Konke's Indiegogo project the K Kit smart wireless sensors? It's a great product, and looks like it's gained quite a bit of popularity since launch, reaching 81% of their 100K pledge goal in just a week! Unfortunately if you didn't get a chance to pledge yet, they're all sold out of the early bird, but be sure to check them out while supplies last for their other perks and receive a free smart plug just for supporting their project.

Also, if you are interested in becoming an official K Kit beta-tester and helping to develop the product with the Konke team, the application is now open, click here to apply.

Until next time, have a bright and happy day! :)

Cheers,

Christian, Gimmy, and Tom

An Evolving Nanoleaf: Hello, Smarter Series!

2 likes

Dear Backers,

Time sure flies when we're having fun making awesome products! It's already been over 3 years since backing the Nanoleaf One (known back then as NanoLight), our very first Kickstarter project! For some of you, it's been eighteen months since you helped turn our second product, the Nanoleaf Bloom into reality as well. 

2015 has been an incredible year for us in terms of growth and development, and we just wanted to share with you a bit on what's been happening with us, and what we plan to do in 2016.

Back Then (2012)

We started this company to make the world a better place, and our first attempt was the design and manufacture of ultra-high efficiency LED lightbulbs. We learned that to increase adoption of high-efficiency lighting, our products had to not only be efficient, but offer a great experience in terms of usability and design aesthetic. You saw our early exploration of hardware user experience in the Nanoleaf Bloom. We constantly work on improving our products and creating better experiences, so that we can bring Nanoleaf into homes all over the world. Higher adoption of our products = greater net positive impact on the sustainability human civilization on planet earth.

In early 2015, we launched the Nanoleaf Gem: the world's first ultra-high efficiency decor LED light bulb. It made the shift from the comfort and warmth of traditional incandescent lighting to LED much more desirable, and we received rave reviews from customers and the design community alike.

Here and Now (2016)

By the end of 2015, we were set to announce the first of our Smarter Series lineup: the Nanoleaf Ivy Smarter Kit. This was an important milestone for us, as the world has begun to evolve and embrace home automation through the Internet of Things. For us, the next frontier for creating an exceptional (and sustainable) lighting experience was by redefining Connected Lighting. Most competing manufacturers consider Connected Lighting the 'gadget' space. We wanted to artfully blend the coolness of this mindset with our existing design philosophy. With the Smarter Series, it was all about enabling great lighting experiences to seamlessly blend with great technology experiences.

The Nanoleaf Ivy Smarter Kit kicked off with a successful Indiegogo project. Since then, we've been selling the kits through the Nanoleaf Store, Amazon US, Amazon Canada, and Amazon UK. We've also been selling them into Best Buy Canada along with a selection of great independent brick and mortar stores all over North America. We're working tirelessly to get this product into even more retail channels, and we can't wait to announce additional locations later this year!

A New Tomorrow (This Year!)

We're thrilled to tell you that we have two more amazing products coming to market in just a few short months.

Nanoleaf Smart Gem

The Smarter cousin of our original Nanoleaf Gem. It will be able to change colors, as well as tune the color temperature of the white light. Want your light warm and cozy? There's an app for that (ours!). Want it cool and crisp? Same app, same great experience, and yours to control.

The Smart Gem will be available this summer.

Nanoleaf Aurora

The Aurora was featured as one of the top products at CES2016 by CNET. This is our modular smart lighting solution that is color-changing and white-tunable. Each panel weighs about as much as an incandescent lightbulb (we hope that future generations won't understand that reference).

The Nanoleaf Aurora will be available this fall.

Be sure to join our mailing list via the bottom of our website to stay up to date on the progress of these new products, and to get access to exclusive deals! :)

Shout-out:K Kit by Konke

We'd also like to take a moment to help spread the word on another start-up who's been striving to create cool products that improve the world. We know how hard being an entrepreneur can be, so we try to help like minded people any way we can. :)

If you are interested in home automation, then you'll love our friends' project, the K Kit. Konke's K Kit offers plug and play smart wireless modules that enable you to control your home, your way. They have created a well designed, subtle home automation solution, complete with sensors that will help to turn your home into an awesome smart home. If you register on K Kit's landing page, you can get a $10 credit to use towards their project that's live now on Indiegogo. :)

Hi Backers,

Thanks so much for your support on our Nanoleaf Smarter Kit's Indiegogo campaign! We want to give you some updates on what's happening with this new product.

News & Business Developments

"I stash hubs like that out of sight behind my TV, but I think I'd make the Nanoleaf Hub as visible as possible -- just like the bulbs, it's downright cool to look at."

There has been quite a bit of exciting news surrounding the Smarter Kit, and it will soon be going into CNET's smart home to be tested along side today's top of the line smart home products!

This past week, our COO Christian Yan presented our Nanoleaf Smarter Kit at the Target Open House in San Francisco. It was a great venue showcasing all of the latest in Smart Home gadgets and we were honored to be part of it. 

In other news, we are ready to officially launch our product on Amazon as well as flagship Best Buy stores in Canada after our Indiegogo campaign ends. If you want to take advantage of our early bird pricing though, you can still get yours at a significant discount on our Indiegogo campaign before the project is over!

We will also be exhibiting at CES this year at the Sands, please stop by if you are attending the show, we'd love to meet you in person! We will send out another update on this once it gets a bit closer to the event.

Manufacturing & Testing

We are finishing up production of our Nanoleaf Smarter Kits right now. Everything has been put through rigorous testing to ensure the highest quality, and they're ready to be sent out to their forever homes! The Nanoleaf Smarter Kit has received the CE1313, UL, and RoHS certifications as well and are ready to ship worldwide without issues at customs.

Do not be fooled by the single LEDs per side, these babies are 60W equivalent bulbs at 100% brightness. So you can get brilliant bright light when you need it, and still be able to set the perfect romantic mood when you want.

The Nanoleaf Smarter Kit has also been given the official Apple stamp of approval! All of the Smarter Kits will be ready to ship out at the end of November, so make sure you don't miss out on pledging for a discounted set via our Indiegogo Campaign! Even if our campaign does not reach our goal, you will still receive your reward. But we do hope that you will help us spread the word! :) Support us here.

Our friend just brought to us their Air Button, a stick-on, customizable, and battery-free button that instantly upgrades your phones! With just one push, you could activate your customized chain of actions and functions on your phone. Just stick the button on the back of your phone and no more fumbling around the jungle of apps!

Nanoleaf Lighting Just Got Smarter! :)

Dearest Backers,

It's been a few months since we last spoke! Rest assured we haven't forgotten you but you guys have instead been the motivation and inspiration behind what we have been so busy doing. Now that our hard work has reached fruition, we can't wait to share with you!

We're thrilled to announce that we have successfully developed and manufactured our first Smart lighting system, the Nanoleaf Smarter Kit: a revolutionary voice-controlled lighting system that works with Siri voice commands! It is one of the very first HomeKit-enabled products out there. The way the Smarter Kit works is very simple. Just download the Nanoleaf App, follow the setup guidelines and presto, your bulbs are ready for instant voice customization! You can name each individual bulb ("turn off the lights in Sarah's room") and create scenes ("set my lights for date night").

Crowdfunding supporters get a discounted price on the Nanoleaf Smarter Kit! :)
We've just launched an Indiegogo campaign for the Nanoleaf Smarter Kit! It's been a tough decision choosing between the Kickstarter platform and Indiegogo, but after a lot of research we believe that Indiegogo will help us get this product in front of more people even after the campaign ends and therefore will help us make a bigger impact.


That is in no way saying we do not appreciate our Kickstarter backers, so we'd like to kindly invite you all to visit our campaign page and learn more about the Nanoleaf Smarter Kit while gaining access to the early bird special price (limited quantity available!). Our campaign can be reached by clicking HERE

The Smarter Kit is a set that comes with a Nanoleaf Smart Hub, and two Nanoleaf Smart Ivy bulbs. Think of the Hub as the gateway that connects the bulbs to your mobile device, allowing for instant voice control through Siri. The possibilities are endless...turn your bulbs on or off, set them at 1% brightness or 50% - let your voice be the light switch. Our product is future-proof and can be updated through software, with Android voice control capability available in early 2016. The hub also plays well with others and works with many popular smart bulbs like Philips Hue, GE Wink and Osram Lightify.

It really has been an incredible journey, and we've come a long way since our very first Nanoleaf bulb. We couldn't have done it without each and every one of you. On behalf of our entire Nanoleaf Team, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Love, 

Christian, Gimmy, Tom

The Nanoleaf One Wins SEAD Global Efficiency Medal!

21 likes

Dearest Backers, 

We write to you with great news! Our Nanoleaf One (formerly NanoLight) has recently been declared one of the winners of the SEAD Global Efficiency Medal along-side Cree! This is an extreme honor in the energy efficient lighting industry, and we are ecstatic that our hard work has not been in vain. This award is proof that no one should ever let the fear of going against corporate giants intimidate them from challenging the status quo. 

Three years ago, we believed that LED lighting should be much more energy efficient than what was available on the market, so we set out to make it happen. Today, we've succeeded in making that vision commercially available, when many thought even the idea of a prototype was impossible. Being the Global Efficiency Medal Winner next to Cree shows that anyone can make an impact, that changing the world is not limited to big companies with deep pockets. Read the full article

Amidst all the craziness of developing new products, growing our company, and trying to save the planet, we want to take a moment and thank YOU, our very first backers and the ones who made what we've achieved so far possible. 

Thanks for believing in us, and for supporting us all this time. :) 

As a special thank you, we've put the Nanoleaf One on sale in celebration of winning the SEAD award. You can use this exclusive discount code to get 20% off all Nanoleaf One light bulbs from our website store.
