How to Pair: Setting up Nanoleaf Lines on AndroidUpdated a year ago

TIP: To pair before mounting, lay out the design for your Nanoleaf Lines on the floor or table and ensure that each Light Line is connected to a Mounting Connector.

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:
Plug your Nanoleaf Lines into power, and wait for the startup cycle to finish. 
You'll know it's finished once your Lines begin cycling through colors, and the light on the Processor is on and steady. Please note that the light on the light on the Processor 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 (NOTE: if this prompt does not appear automatically, you can find it by going into the "...More" tab in the bottom right corner, tapping "Devices", then tapping the "+" in the bottom right corner.)

Step 4:
Select your pairing option: QR code, NFC Tap, or Manual Input. Your pairing and QR code can be found on the postcard that came with your Lines, on the back of the Processor, and on the back of the Power Supply.
Alternatively, Nanoleaf Lines can be paired through NFC pairing, by tapping your phone to the back of the Processor.

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

Step 5:
Select the network that you want to connect your Lines to (NOTE: this must be a 2.4GHz network). Once it is connected to the network, your Lines will flash to indicate that they were able to successfully join.

Step 6:
Name your Lines, and assign them to a room.

Step 7:
The Setup Orientation screen will appear in order to confirm the orientation of your Lines with what is displayed on the screen. The LayoutDetect feature automatically detects how your Lines 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.

Step 8:
Enjoy your Lines!
