The triangular ones that I am using at the moment are good too, and how is helps you in lockdown is the following.

You would have read my previous articles on how I use the Nanoleaf Light Panels.  It’s still in the design of a Koi fish, and it’s used every day to indicate certain actions that needs to be done.  For example, the lights come on for 5 minutes at 7:20 am on weekdays in a soothing multi shades of green scene display to let us know that it’s time to leave the house and send my son to school.

You can set the color scheme to be Beach.  Then immediately the lights change to a soothing shimmer of light blues, whites, and sandy beige, plus it animates.  It fills up the entire space with the colors.  I haven’t looked into YouTube yet, but you can see this effect represented by the animated GIF in this article.  Add some Ibiza music in the background on you HomePod, and chill.  Oh, and don’t forget to turn on your HomeKit fan at intermittent speed to simulate the wind from the sea.

Another option is to be immerse yourself into your Game play.  One of the coolest add on to the Nanoleaf light panels is the Rhythm module you can use this to sync s.  The louder the sound, the brighter or fuller the lights light up.

The Nanoleaf App offers users a slew of pre-made scenes, as well as scenes put together by users of the app.  You can do key word searches for the color scheme you want, or create your own.  Then when you’re happy with it you can download it to include into your Automation settings.

There are a couple of options that you can choose from.  Either it goes on an automatic pattern, or with the sounds that the Rhythm module picks up.  Ideally you should place the Rhythm module near the sound source.  You can even come up with your own scenes.

If you’re playing a video game with lots of explosions and shots sounds, you can set the lights to a flame scheme then set the rhythm to be on a meteor shower like movement.  Then when there is an explosion the whole room or wall will be filled with reds and white.  KABOOM!
