So, I don't have Bluetooth and the network for Nanoleaf is issolated from the Internet. How do I control the Lightstrip via Wi-Fi?

Hi!

Unfortunately, our Essentials line can only be controlled via Bluetooth or Thread. would highly recommend you watch the first video on a detailed breakdown on setting up your Essentials:

After which, you can also check out this breakdown video on Thread:

Kind regards,

Okay, what 'Thread' device is available that does not require an Internet connection?

While I can set these up using Bluetooth, controlling then with Bluetooth is not an option.

Hi,

Thanks for getting back.

As of now, the initial setup for Apple border routers (HomePod mini or latest AppleTV 4K), requires an internet connection but after that it's not required.

Once we release Border Router functionality on our Shapes/Elements Controllers, the user will need an internet connection to update to the Border Router compatible firmware but then once they're on it they'll be able to use Thread without an internet connection.

Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any further questions.

Kind regards,
