Full-Colour Matter-Enabled Smart Downlight
The Nanoleaf smart recessed downlight incorporates the very latest in smart lighting technology. It's easy to set up and use, offers full-colour control, and sports a minimalist design. Here are some of its unique features:
Easy to install. The Nanoleaf downlight comes pre-wired with a plug and lead, making it easy to install in your existing 90mm ceiling cutouts.
Robust and energy-efficient. It carries an IC-4 insulating rating, meaning it can be 'abutted and covered' with insulation in your roof. It also has an IP44 rating, so it's suitable for use in damp areas like the kitchen, bathroom, and laundry.
Bluetooth, Thread, and Matter enabled. Enjoy seamless connectivity and effortless smart home integration. 'Matter over Thread' is the latest brand-independent way to control your smart devices.
16 million colours, tunable whites, and dimmable. Set the perfect mood for any occasion with fully customisable lighting.
App and voice control. Create lighting schedules, scenes, and automations with the intuitive Nanoleaf app. Or, use your voice to make adjustments via Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, and Apple Siri.
How is the Nanoleaf Downlight Better With Thread?
The Nanoleaf downlight uses Thread as its primary networking technology. Other smart downlights use Bluetooth, Wifi, or Zigbee - each with some shortcomings. Thread is a new system that aims to remove the glitchiness you may have experienced with other smart lights.
One Hub. Say goodbye to multiple smart home hubs for different products. Thread requires just one Thread border router to operate - and there's a good chance you already have one in your home. See the FAQ section for details.
Better Range. Thread is a mesh network that grows with each additional Thread-enabled device. This means stronger, more reliable, and broader coverage within your home.
Instant Control. Thread is always connected, meaning near-instant responsiveness.
Energy Saving. Thread uses less power, which is great for all smart devices, but especially for battery-powered ones.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is 'Matter' and 'Thread'?
Matter is a new, unifying smart home standard that aims to simplify how smart devices work together. Different devices can use this common language to 'talk' to each other, regardless of their brand or platform.
Thread is the underlying networking technology that helps devices communicate with each other. It's a low-power mesh network designed specifically for smart home devices.
Instead of needing separate apps and hubs for different devices, Matter-certified devices (like this Nanoleaf downlight) will work with your chosen app or smart home system. More and more devices are becoming Matter-certified, giving you flexibility and long-term certainty with your preferred smart home products.
Do I need a smart home hub to use the Nanoleaf downlights?
For a basic installation, you can control the Nanoleaf downlights directly from the Nanoleaf app using Bluetooth. No additional hardware is needed.
However, a Matter-compatible smart hub or Thread border router is required to unlock the smart downlight's full capabilities. The good news is that you may already have one of these in your home.
The following devices are Matter smart hubs that double as Thread border routers:
- Apple - Apple HomePod mini, Apple HomePod (2nd Generation), Apple TV 4K (2nd generation and 3rd generation Wifi + Ethernet 128GB model).
- Google - Nest Wifi Pro (Wi-Fi 6E), Nest Hub (2nd gen), Nest Hub Max.
- Amazon - Echo (4th Gen).
- Samsung - SmartThings Station, SmartThings 2018 Hub (IM6001-V3P01) and Aeotec Smart Home Hub.
The following devices act as Thread border routers only:
- Nanoleaf - Shapes, Lines and Elements (Firmware 8.5.2+)
Here's a summary of the Nanoleaf downlight's capabilities with the three different levels of connectivity:
Thread features require a Thread border router. Matter over Thread needs a Matter-compatible smart home hub like those mentioned above.
