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.

Matter received its big 1.2 update in late 2023, and now the Connectivity Standards Alliance (CSA) is ready to officially roll out Matter 1.3. The latest version of the interoperability standard is now available for use, offering added support for appliances like microwave ovens and lclothes dryers, while also introducing new features for water and energy management.

The full list of new device types supported by Matter 1.3 include microwave ovens, ovens, cooktops, extractor hoods (such as vent hoods), and laundry dryers. These aren't quite as exciting or mainstream as the nine device types introduced with Matter 1.2, but it's great to see the CSA continuing to broaden the reach of the Matter network.
