That Nanoleaf - Aurora Rhythm Smarter Kit ('https://www.bestbuy.com/site/nanoleaf-aurora-rhythm-smarter-kit/6039500.p?skuId=6039500') is so tempting. A quick Google shopping search says that it is a good price. Someone talk me in or out of it please.

I'll chime in: Nanoleaf is my favorite HomeKit accessory, I have it as an accent light bordering my iMac. I automate it for still light during the day when I work and then change it up with moving scenes in the late afternoon/night time. The app could be better, but it's functional. Overall, it's a fun addition to a HomeKit setup if you have the wall space for it!

Well if it comes recommended by a Gunslinger, it must be good enough for me. I think you (and my fascination with light up stuff) have sold me on it. I'll prob wait until the 15 pack goes on sale though or maybe wait until these touch sensitive ones are out. Have you seen them? Anyway, thank you for your reply.
