Expand your Nanoleaf display
Nanoleaf Shapes Smarter kits are a great way to get started creating a colorful mosaic-like light display. Each includes a power supply that'll support many additional panels, so you can use these expansion packs to build out your system according to your own imagination. You can mix and match panels from the whole Shapes line, adding each panel's wattage to reach the maximum recommended 42-watt threshold.
Compatible base kits:
Using optional additional power supplies available from Nanoleaf, you can expand your system even further. The controller that came with your base kit can control up to 500 connected panels.
These add-on panels get their power and Wi-Fi connection directly from your existing Nanoleaf starter kit, so all you have to do is decide on a design for your newly expanded system. The Nanoleaf app lets you preview different panel configurations and virtually project your design on your wall using its built-in Layout Assistant. Try out a bunch of options before you ever unpeel the adhesive backing and install the panels.

More details on the Nanoleaf Shapes Expansion Pack
Overview: Nanoleaf Shapes are modular smart light panels that can be connected together to create designs and shapes on the walls and ceilings in your home. Shapes connect to each other via Linkers. This Nanoleaf Hexagon Expansion Pack (NL42-0001HX-3PK) contains 3 hexagonal-shaped light panels, each with an attached Mounting Plate, 3 Linkers, and 4 Adhesive pads. You must have the Hexagon Smarter Kit (sold separately), which contains the needed 42-watt power supply. You can even mix Hexagons with Triangles and Mini Triangles expansion packs for more possibilities. A total of up to 21 Hexagon Shapes panels can be connected to a single 42W power supply.
Hexagon Light Output: Each Hexagon smart light panel has a total of 100 lumens of light output per panel. The RGBW panels can produce more than 16 million vivid colors. The Color Temperature can be adjusted from 1200K to 6500K.
Connect+ Technology: Nanoleaf Shapes (hexagons, triangles, and mini triangles) feature Connect+ Technology that allows them to work together to create mosaics of light. You can mix and match Shapes to give you unlimited possibilities in designs. Connect+ also provides Touch Actions and Touch Gestures. A single touch on a panel can activate HomeKit Scenes that can control some or all of your HomeKit products. You can even play interactive games using the Touch Actions controls. Touch Gestures, such as swiping up, down, left, or right or double tapping can be configured into specific commands using the Nanoleaf Smarter Series App. For example, you can use Touch Gestures to turn the brightness up or down, turn the panels on or off, or shuffle through Rhythm or Color Scenes.
Shapes Control: Nanoleaf Shapes can be controlled in a variety of ways. In addition to Touch Controls (described above), you can connect the Controller, included in the Smarter Kit, to any of the panels in your design to enable onboard control. The Controller has buttons to Dim and Brighten, cycle through Rhythm Scenes or Color Scenes, and Shuffle the preset scenes, plus other Advanced Controls. Shapes can be controlled wirelessly through the Nanoleaf Smarter Series app, available for iOS, Android, Mac, and PC. The lights are also compatible with Apple HomeKit (Siri), Amazon Alexa, and Google Assistant, to let you control your Shapes by your voice.
Wi-Fi / Thread: Shapes connect directly to your Wi-Fi network 2.4 GHz b/g/n) without the need for a hub or bridge. They are also compatible with the Thread mesh network (IEEE 802.15.4 MAC/PHY), and interconnect with other Nanoleaf Essentials light strips and smart bulbs for advanced control. Shapes work as a Thread Border Router which supports bi-directional connectivity between Thread and Wi-Fi/Ethernet networks.
Nanoleaf Smarter Series App: The Nanoleaf Smarter Series app allows you to design, setup, and control your Nanoleaf lights from the palm of your hand. The app features a Layout Assistant to help you design your Nanoleaf lights, whether its how the lights are put together physically, or choosing colors in a custom configuration. You can choose from 19 lighting scenes or create your own custom color layout. Each Nanoleaf light can be turned on/off individually or in groups, and dimmed or brightened as you desire. You can also choose from millions of colors from the intuitive color wheel. The lights can be automated into set schedules to automate your daily lighting needs, dimming at night and gently brightening as you wake up. The app lets you turn on Rhythm Scenes that dance to your music, or activate the Screen Mirror that causes the Nanoleaf lights to mimic the on-screen activity for movies and gaming. Connect your lights with your smart home assistant, such as Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, or Siri (Apple HomeKit), and use voice commands to control them hands free. Nanoleaf products also work with IFTTT, Samsung SmartThings, and Razer Chroma RGB. The Nanoleaf Smarter Series app is available for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch running iOS 12.0 or later, and smartphones and tablets running Android 5.0 and up. Apps for Windows PCs and Macs are also available.
Installation: Nanoleaf Shapes are easy to install. Each Hexagon has a removable Mounting Plate that holds the lighting panel to the wall or ceiling. Strong adhesive strips for each Mounting Plate and the Controller are provided. Mounting to textured, porous surfaces (such as wallpaper, brick), popcorn walls/ceilings, or mirrors is not recommended. The Mounting Plates have removable bases that have 2 screw holes for more secure mounting, especially recommended if you're mounting the panels to the ceiling. The panels are connected together side-by-side using the provided Linkers. All of the panels, plus the Controller and Power Supply, must be interconnected. The Power Supply, included in the Smarter Kit, has an 8-foot power cord that connects to one of the panels. It is recommended that you design your layout on a table or floor before mounting to the wall to make sure the design works the way you want. You should measure the height and width of your design to make sure it fits into your space. QR Codes for pairing your Shapes to the Nanoleaf Smarter Series App can be found on the Power Supply and Controller, as well as printed on the front cover of the Quick Start Guide.
Mixing/Matching Shapes: The Nanoleaf Shapes are available in Hexagonal, Triangles, and Mini Triangles, which can be mixed and matched to create beautiful designs. Each standard Power Supply (PSU) supports up to 21 Hexagons (up to 2 watts per panel). It can also support 28 Triangles, or 77 Mini Triangles. If you are mixing different Shapes, you can determine if you have enough power supplies in your layout by using the online PSU Calculator. A single Controller can be used to control up to a total of 500 Shapes.
