I’m setting up my Light Panels at school or workUpdated 3 years ago

Enterprise style routers such as those on college/university campuses, offices, or apartments often have different security settings than those on standard consumer routers. Connecting your Nanoleaf Light Panels is possible, but may require additional assistance in configuring.

Generally this can be done by whitelisting the Light Panels by the MAC Address (which is found on the back of the Nanoleaf Controller), but please consult your IT professional to assist in getting this setup.

The router needs to be compatible with the Bonjour protocol in order to be discovered on the local network, as long as these settings are configured, you should be able to use the Light Panels on enterprise networks.

Another alternative to this is to set up the Light Panels in hotspot mode where the Light Panels will generate their own WiFi hotspot, which you can connect your phone to. See our article here to configure this setting.
