How it all works

When you connect the TRÅDFRI gateway to your home WiFi router and download the IKEA Home smart app, the real magic happens. The gateway will then be able to talk to your connected IKEA Home smart products. You can add smart lighting, smart blinds and control outlets (to make wired electronics smart). With the app, you'll then be able to steer your home: Deciding when the lights should go on and off, when the blinds should go up or down - and set different moods in the app which you can activate with a tap.
