CES 2018: Nanoleaf Debuts New $49 HomeKit-Enabled Remote for Controlling Nanoleaf Light Panels

Nanoleaf, the company behind the popular HomeKit-enabled Nanoleaf Light Panels (formerly called the Aurora), today announced the upcoming launch of the Nanoleaf Remote.

The Nanoleaf Remote, priced at $49.99, is a neat-looking dodecahedron-shaped device that's designed to let you change your HomeKit scenes and dim the lights just by manipulating the remote.


There are 12 sides to the Nanoleaf Remote, each of which can be set to a different HomeKit scene. You can choose lighting scenes that are for the Nanoleaf Light Panels, or more complex scenes that incorporate multiple HomeKit products.

While designed to work with the Nanoleaf Light Panels, the Bluetooth-enabled Remote is a standalone device that works with any HomeKit setup so long as you have a Home Hub, aka a Nanoleaf Rhythm module, an Apple TV, or an iPad. Android users will need the Rhythm module for the Remote to work.


Nanoleaf plans to launch the Remote in the spring of 2018, but it will be shown off at CES. Nanoleaf will also be demonstrating Light Panels in new shapes at CES, prior to a launch later in 2018.

Nanoleaf's existing Light Panels with Rhythm module can be purchased from the Nanoleaf website for $230.

I’m a lot of things but in my 20s is not one of them. I’ve got Aurora lighting panels and love them. It doesn’t seem at all out of place to control them with a giant d12. So, yeah, sign me up (as soon as the HomePod comes out so I can use it as my HomeKit hub.)

Age 41 and my wife and I love our Aurora and will probably pick up this remote as well. I think it looks fun.

"a neat-looking dodecahedron-shaped device"

Neat-looking, maybe, but also fundamentally a stupid idea.
