Setting up my Nanoleaf Shapes on iOS

TIP: Lay out the design for your Nanoleaf Shapes on the floor (or another flat surface) to ensure that each panel is properly connected to a linker.

Arrange the Shapes such that each is able to connect to at least one adjacent panel. Use the Layout Assistant to verify the layout and map out where to place your panels.

Ensure that at least one power supply is used per every 21 panels. Press the power button, and the Shapes will power up within a minute or two.

Once the Shapes has powered up, and is cycling through colors, you can start the pairing process. This will be further indicated by the light on the power button remaining on. 

Start by press Start Pairing button in the app. The Add Accessory window will appear to scan the HomeKit Setup Code (QR code). This code can be found on the cover of the user guide booklet. Alternatively, the panels can be paired through NFC pairing

Note: NFC will need to be activated on your mobile device in order to use this feature.  

Scan (or manually enter) the HomeKit Setup Code (QR code). The app will begin searching for the accessory to add.  When the pairing is complete the Shape panels will flash green. 

The Add Accessory window will pop up to accommodate renaming the device. Here, you can also assign the device to a specific room, as well as choose to include it in the list of Favorites in HomeKit.

The Setup Orientation screen will appear in order to confirm the orientation of the installation with what is displayed on the screen. 

Note: This is required to enable proper scene direction, and ensure that touch and swipe gestures work properly.
