Setting up Nanoleaf Elements on Android

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.

Step 3:
Press "Start Pairing"  in the app.

Step 4:
Select the network that you want to connect your Elements to (Note: this must be a 2.4GHz network). 

Step 5:
Input your Pairing Code. This code can be found on the postcard that came with your Elements, on the back of the Controller, and on the back of the Power Supply.
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 6:
Name your Elements, and assign them to a room.

Step 7:
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 panels 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 direction, and that you can effectively set up and use features like Touch Gestures and Touch Actions!

Step 8:
Enjoy your incredible Nanoleaf Elements!
