How to Pair: Setting up Nanoleaf Elements on iOSUpdated 2 years ago

TIP: To pair before mounting, lay out the design for your Nanoleaf Elements on the floor or table and ensure that each panel is connected to at least one adjacent panel with a Linker. You'll need to make sure you have at least one power supply for every 22 panels.

Step 1:
Download the Nanoleaf Smarter Series App. When opening the app for the first time you will be prompted to create an account. This is used to connect to applications like Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and IFTTT, but is not a mandatory step for setup otherwise. 

Step 2:
Turn on your Elements, and wait for the startup cycle to finish. 
You'll know it's finished once your Elements begin cycling through a lighting animation, and the light on the power button is on and steady. Please note that the power button will begin to flash after 15 min after which you would need to perform another soft reset.

Step 3:
Press "Start Pairing"  in the app. The "Add Accessory" window will appear to scan the HomeKit Setup Code (QR code). This code can be found on the postcard that came with your Elements,  on the back of the Controller, or on the back of your Power Supply. You can also enter your code manually.

Alternatively, Nanoleaf Elements can be paired through NFC pairing, by tapping your phone to the back of the Controller.

Note: NFC will need to be activated on your mobile device in order to use this feature. Only certain phones support NFC pairing. 

Step 4:
Name your Elements, assign them to a specific room, or choose to include it in the list of Favorites in HomeKit.

Step 6:
The Setup Orientation screen will appear in order to confirm the orientation of your Elements with what is displayed on the screen. The LayoutDetect feature automatically detects how your Elements are connected to one another but you may need to rotate the layout on the screen. This ensures that the animations of your Scenes flow in the right directions, and that you can effectively set up and use the Touch Gestures feature!

Step 7:
Enjoy your beautiful Nanoleaf Elements!
