New Nanoleaf lights, fish tank robot, and more on HomeKit Insider

HomeKit Insider

Nanoleaf launches smart lights in a new color, Aqara releases a new window covering robot, and there's much more news on this week's episode of the HomeKit Insider podcast.

We've previously seen early news of Aqara's smart curtain driver, but now it has been officially released in the US. The Aqara E1 is an easy way to open and close curtains using Apple HomeKit.

It's time, too, to celebrate Nanoleaf's tenth anniversary. The company's "Nanoversary" has been rung in with the launch of a new limited-edition product. Nanoleaf debuted a new set of its popular triangle light panels, they this version comes in an all-black design.

In other news, one of our listeners shared a 3D-printed mounting plate for the Wemo Stage Scene Controller. This allows it to sit more flush in a typical decora plate cover.

Finally, we discussed what products we bought on Prime Day, plus a robotic fish tank cleaner, and some signs of life from iDevices.
