New Lifx Tile wall panels are aiming to compete with Nanoleaf’s Aurora.
September has been a busy month for good lighting producer Lifx. First it added Apple HomeKit compatibility to its line of good LEDs, then it launched three mini variations of its basic bulbs. Now Lifx is asserting Tile, a Nanoleaf-Aurora-esque color-changing LED wall panel.
Out there for preorder now on the Lifx web site, the Tile starter equipment prices $250 for 5 wall panels and one US, Canadian or worldwide energy adapter. On the present trade fee, Tile pricing converts to roughly £185 or AU$315. Lifx Tile kits will begin delivery in November.

Whereas Tile has a powerful listing of good house companions, the Lifx web site does not explicitly point out any leisure options for its new LED wall panels. Tile’s predominant competitor, the Nanoleaf Aurora, introduced the Aurora Rhythm in early September. Bought as a separate accent for $50 (roughly £40 and AU$60 transformed) or as a part of the Aurora Smarter Rhythm Equipment for $230 (£180/AU$290), the Aurora Rhythm permits you to sync your Aurora LEDs to your favourite music.
