Smart lighting specialist Nanoleaf has announced it is going to integrate smart home protocol Thread into all its future products. This is following the company’s launch of the Essentials range back in November 2020.
While Thread has been around since 2016, it gained my traction after the release of the Apple HomePod mini. Thread is a mesh system, and it isn’t reliant on a central hub like a Zigbee or Wi-Fi network, for example. It is also while super-low latency and the more devices you add, the stronger the network becomes.
I have been testing Thread devices over the last month or so and been impressed with the performance. When comparing to Bluetooth, the reason times have been impressive.
