Sharing your Multicolor HD Lightstrip between EcosystemsUpdated 2 months ago

One of the features of Matter is Multi-Admin which lets you share your Matter-compatible smart home device between ecosystems. Using this feature, it can be controlled by any or all of Apple Home, Google Home, Amazon Alexa, and Samsung SmartThings simultaneously!

In order to activate this, open the app of the smart home ecosystem you’ve already paired your Multicolor HD Lightstrip to via Matter and follow the instructions below. Your device can always be paired with the Nanoleaf app using the original setup code present on the device, regardless of Matter pairings:

Apple Home

  1. In the Home tab, tap on the light you want to share.

  2. Scroll all the way down to the bottom of the control and settings screen.

  3. Tap “Turn On Pairing Mode”.

  4. A prompt will appear saying “Accessory Ready to Connect”.

  5. Tap “Copy Code” and perform the following steps within 15 minutes

  6. Open the app of the ecosystem you want to share the light with.

  7. Begin the flow for adding a new device, select Matter if the device isn’t automatically detected, and paste the code from the Apple Home prompt into the manual pairing code input.

Google Home

Open the app of the ecosystem you want to share the light with. Begin the flow for adding a new device, select Matter if the device isn’t automatically detected, and paste the code from the Google Home prompt into the manual pairing code input.

    3. If the app you want to share with does not appear and you want to pair with an app on a different phone/tablet, tap “Share with QR code”. Open the ecosystem app you want to share with on the other phone/tablet, begin the flow for adding a new device, and scan the new QR code.
