Great storageRobynFantastic storage. A bit tricky to assemble.5
Great and not expensive.PaulI use it to kepp all the smart Tradfri devices firmware up to date and allows me to control with and old Google home mini and even better works very fast with SIRI (Apple). Proving to be a good ecosystem. Will be expanding.5
Excellent lightingruthEasy to setup and then I linked to my Google Nest. Good price and good quality.5
Work well with Apple HomekitArturoInstalling Tradfri gateway and adding it into Apple Homekit is easy. The harder part is connecting Tradfri led lights if you don't have remote controlled devices like dimming kit. instructions to connect light bulbs to their gateway requires another remote controlled device like dimming kit (Tradfri dimming kit). However, the light bulbs can be directly connected to the gateway without dimming kit. I didn't want to get the dimming kit since I could do much more from Apple homekit and using voice command. I think the requirements to have a remote controlled device to pair lights bulbs to the gateway is for convenience. Since the gateway is wired to your router it's not convenient to move it around close to any new light bulbs for pairing.4
CoolHarley FrickerThe product is great and it looks smart, it’s a little bit messy in terms of installation from an assembly perspective but the software is smooth.4
An expensive nightmare in connectivity. Run.JM_IN_CBRTaking this straight back to store tomorrow. Dissapointed is an understatement. I'm plenty technologically literate yet somehow this took 30 minutes to get initial set up with help from customer support. Setup being a nightmare, I thought OK that's done. Might be fine now The system briefly worked after that, before disconnecting from my perfectly good phone and router and refusing to reconnect. (attempted to reconnect many times, unplugged, reset etc. ) After looking online, this seems to be a common experience for some. This makes me scared to even consider other computerised products from Ikea. Horrendously unreliable, janky, unusable garbage. I'll be back tomorrow for my money thanks.1
WorksFrankie QGood product but limits you to only ikea products. would be much nicer if it was more universal3
Excellent featuresDe69This is working like a treat, so pleased we purchased this.5
Good value, ok once configured, hard to setupGezIkeaNutI have four tradfri E27 screw in globes and 3 GU10 downlights. The main purpose for the system initially was to have a single remote for lamps, but than I bought the GU10 downlight globes for some external lighting. I now can program when these come on and off via a simple timer. HOWEVER, its very tricky to configure the initial setup, and quite tricky to add additional globes to it. Its very hit and miss. I don't think this is unique to Ikea's tech though (which I understand shares its platform with Phillips), its dependent on WIFI stability and other factors. I also use a mesh network, and this may have caused issues. However once its configured, whilst its configurability is quite limited, for the price, its really easy and simple to use. Only point I would make is that it would be great to see Ikea release a 90mm downlight for the AU market!4
Easy to set up as the basis for an automised homeRobHuI’d started looking at automated lighting and other automated home features and I thought. I’d start with the Trådfri and go from there. I now have a motion sensor and light working. More to come. Very easy to set up.5
Buggy and unresponsiveEjermacFor a meager price it’s not bad, but for it to respond almost a minute delay is not a good experience.1
Fun Lights for KidsChazzaBought for kids chirstmas pressie and they love it4
TRADFRI GatewayHoki1Does what is required very well3
Easy to usemikrakHad no issues setting it up, covers entire 1 bedroom apartment with no problems, lights all work wonderfully with it.5
Decent starter home automation gatewayNixxxI bought this gateway recently to test in my smart Home alongside my existing Philips, Samsung, Osram, Logitech, Soma and Xiaomi gateways. It has a nice physical design which keeps the cables neat and tidy and once you have it setup it's seems to work reasonably well, including the integration with Google Assistant. It is definitely a basic gateway though with not many bells and whistles around programmability and currently no support for lights or switches from other established brands in this space. The initial setup did take several attempts before it succeeded and I've since noticed that it stopped working with Google Assistant at least twice in the last week which required a reboot to fix (while my other gateways were still working with my google home setup). The LED driver is great, as is the remote and the price of the entire range is very reasonable so I hope these (software stability) issues with the Gateway's Voice integration are fixed via an update soon as this range of smart home gear from IKEA is already what I'm recommending to my budget conscious friends who want to dable in this space without a huge investment.3
Absolute waste of timeJimbobmcgeeI bought an Ikea globe... Then I bought the button... Still couldn't connect to Google home... Then I bought this... A WiFi connection to the light that needs to be wired to the router... Seriously Ikea... I live in a smart development... Free WiFi for all... No router in site... I couldn't use this... So I went an bought another globe from another brand... And it just worked... No button... No wires... Just an app... And Google home... Seven minutes and it was working...1
Good Value for moneyVictor27The gateway is easy to setup and use, however it was non responsive a couple of time and had to restart. Overall good value for money and yes future IKEA products will be supported by the same gateway so long term returns!!!4
Works a treat!Laz59Bought this Gateway along with other Tradfri bulbs & IKEA lights to use with Apple HomeKit & Siri. Once the lights are setup and linked through a Remote to the Gateway everything works amazingly well.5
Intergrates perfectly with my Google Home MiniAnonymous reviewerI now have a fully voice controlled home, including all lights, TV, Air cond (through wifi RF) and I can even turn on my kettle. IKEA Tradfri lights are simply to install and add easy using the Tradfri Gateway and App to hook up to Google.5
Simple, and worksiGustavoIt just works.. Follow the instructions and you cannot go wrong, it’s plug and play, works really well with Apple HomeKit and Siri. Very affordable.. and remember you must purchase one of the remotes to connect the light bulbs.5

IKEA Home smart

What defines a smart product? The possibility to connect it to the Internet? That it’s wireless? To us, it’s a product that makes the everyday easier.

Most people who want to make their home smarter, start with the lighting. When you add the TRÅDFRI gateway, you can make it even smarter. Together with connected lamps you can set different scenes and timers – so you always wake up with a soft, gentle light in the mornings and can call ‘lights out’ when it’s bedtime. “You can connect many different product types to the TRÅDFRI gateway. All to make your life at home more convenient, in more than one way,” says Rebecca Töreman who works with connected products at IKEA.

Improving life at home

Smart lighting is one way we’re using technology to improve life at home. Imagine a cosy weekday family dinner, lights glowing soft and warm. When the meal is done, the table is cleared for homework, which calls for clean, bright light. The goal of Rebecca and the Smart lighting team is to make that transition simple and smooth. Literally, it can be at the touch of a button. “Lighting is such an important part of life at home,” says Rebecca. “You do so many activities every day at home and the light needs to support you in doing all these things.” The range is made up of products that can be combined to create a personalised home lighting solution. It includes LED bulbs, panels and cabinet doors that can all be controlled by a remote. You can dim them and even change the tone of the light, from warm to cold. One remote can control up to 10 Smart lighting products.

Making home tech affordable

Smart lighting technology isn’t new, but so far it hasn’t been so accessible. “It’s been very expensive and complicated,” says Rebecca. “If we can develop Smart lighting that’s easy to understand and affordable, it actually becomes accessible to the many people.” When it comes to cost, Rebecca and her team set a personal goal. “What would we want to pay for a light bulb like this?” asks Rebecca. “We’ve been going back to this idea throughout the whole process.” Working with large volumes has helped lower costs. And, by collaborating with experienced tech suppliers, we’ve been able to find smart ways to save. Those savings are then passed on to the customer.

User friendly and convenient

By offering “kits” that have everything you need to get started, we make it easier to have Smart lighting in your home. And, if you end up wanting to expand your solution, it’s simple. “You can start with the function that suits you and your family’s life, and you can build on that,” says Rebecca. You can look forward to even more Smart lighting products from IKEA in the future. “There will be upgrades and new things customers can do to improve and build on the system,” says Rebecca, who sees a fuss-free future where very little can interrupt a lazy afternoon. “If you sit in your sofa and want to turn on the light, but the light switch is over on the wall, well, obviously with the wireless remote you don’t actually have to get up!”

If it’s simple to use, it’s smart

With the help of the TRÅDFRI gateway, IKEA connected products can be steered through the IKEA Home smart app or a voice assistant like Amazon Alexa, Apple Siri or Google Assistant. Say ‘dinner time’ to dim the lights and play your favourite music in the background. Or flood the room with light so no spot or crumb can hide when it’s time to clean up. “We’re using a standard technology and adapting it to peoples’ needs as home furnishing specialists, not tech specialists. We want our connected products to be easy to use – you shouldn’t have to be an engineer to make them work,” says Rebecca.

More connected products are coming

From being toys mostly for people interested in new gadgets, connected products have become useful instruments to tackle common everyday inconveniences. It has inspired Rebecca and her colleagues to explore more ways to make the home more comfortable. Blinds that automatically open while you’re still in bed is one example. “We’re continuously adding new products that work with TRÅDFRI gateway and the IKEA Home smart app. You can update your home with new functions and make it as smart as you want, in the pace you prefer.”
