White Christmas: Less is often more, and these simple decorations certainly add a magical allure Nanoleaf Canvas
A smart programmable wall-panel lighting solution.
The system is well designed, with each of the nine light squares fitting together perfectly flush, so no gaps can ruin your pattern. This is made possible by the tiny canvas linkers that hold the pieces in place and provide the power.
Although the starter pack of nine panels won’t illuminate an entire room like a traditional lamp, the brightness is impressive and all eyes are drawn to the light display on the wall.
You can programme the colour pattern as desired using a smartphone app along with touch commands from your hand. A built-in rhythm mode provides a dancing light show to any music you play, which is obviously great for parties.
The system is also compatible with most smart home controllers, including Apple Siri, Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa.
A lack of an accompanying alignment tool makes it tricky to get the panels even and a spirit level is needed in most cases. The panels are 15cm x 15cm, which isn’t big compared with most walls, so you may have to buy more packs to create an elaborate design.
Those who want to jazz up a bland wall with a bit of light and more control over a traditional lamp or smart bulb. It creates a great ambience in small rooms.
You want more lighting bang for your buck as the panels can’t compete with a bulb for directional light.
