Nanoleaf and Secretlab team on a new smart light strip

Nanoleaf has recently announced a partnership with Secretlab to release the new MAGRGB diffused LED strip. This LED strip was specifically made for Secretlab’s Magnus metal gaming desk. With this new lighting and desk, you’ll elevate your gaming to the next level.

Those unfamiliar with the Magnus metal desk will be impressed by its features. First, its build quality is above that of most desks, including all the wooden desks popularized by IKEA. It also was made with cable management in mind, thanks to the back compartment of the desk. You can have it flush against your wall and still have all your cables meticulously managed at the back of the desk.

The MAGRGB from Nanoleaf fits the desk perfectly by connecting to it with magnets. It also has over 120 individually customizable LEDs supporting over 16 million colors. It comes with a remote to change the strip to four different custom theme presets or seven custom colors. There are also custom lighting scenes embedded for gamers to show support for esports teams like Team Liquid, Cloud 9, and more. The MAGRGB also supports custom scenes and can be scheduled to automatically turn on or off, or set to custom colors.

To integrate with your smart home ecosystem, you can connect the MAGRGB to Google Assistant or Apple Homekit. Connecting to a smart home ecosystem allows you to control the strip with your voice or through the respective apps. Connecting with your smart home also allows for the MAGRGB to be set up in other automations. You can also use the Nanoleaf app to connect the strip to other Nanoleaf lighting products, such as the Shapes panels or the Lines light bar.

Secretlab already has a few other accessories that connect to its MAGNUS metal desk, and this collaboration with Nanoleaf adds the MAGRGB to that lineup. The MAGRGB is now available on the Secretlab website for $79.

The Dynamic Effects Neon-Shape Smart Lights glowing purple.

After debuting at CES 2023, the Dynamic Effects Neon-Shape Smart Lights from GE Lighting are now available for purchase. These highly customizable lights can be controlled using the Cync smartphone app, but also use a built-in microphone to adjust their performance in real time based on the audio of their surroundings.

The Dynamic Effects Neon-Shape Smart Lights actively listen to your home to detect sounds coming from nearby music, video games, or other activities to provide an immersive lighting experience. It’s a nifty feature -- and one that should help set it apart from the competition. You’ll also be able to use the built-in microphone to issue voice commands, and you can control the lights with Amazon Alexa or Google Home.

Ring’s new indoor camera features a built-in privacy shutter
The Ring Indoor Cam mounted on a wall.

Ring is launching a new Ring Indoor Cam on May 24, and it’ll be the first indoor camera in its catalog to include a privacy shutter. The shutter allows you to turn off both the camera and microphone, and it can be easily removed if you don’t need the additional privacy features.

The shutter can’t, however, be remotely activated. This means you’ll need to manually swivel the privacy shutter in front of the camera when you want to use it, then swivel it out of the way when you want to start recording again. Still, as the first Ring Indoor Cam to offer the feature, it’s definitely a step in the right direction.

Smart assistants are an indispensable part of any smart home, making it easy to give hands-free commands and control a variety of gadgets. Google is looking to further streamline the performance of its smart assistant, with the expansion of chime alerts to cut down on how talkative your Google Nest gadgets are when responding to instructions.

For example, after asking Google to turn on a fan, you’ll now be able to hear a quick chime to confirm the assistant has heard your instructions. Previously, confirmation would come in the form of a short sentence, such as “OK, turning on your fan.”
