    • ♪ [upbeat music starts, continuing throughout the video] ♪

      A blue and yellow icon of a house appears on screen, above an IKEA logo.

      [Female voice begins narrating] - Hej! Have you heard about IKEA Home smart? Our solution for making your home that little bit smarter and your life a whole lot easier?

      The icon becomes a dollhouse, and we zoom in through a window, now seeing scenes of real life at home. In quick succession, a hand grabs a glass, a child runs through a living space, a phone is placed on a magnetic charger, and orange juice is poured into the glass.

      - Relax. You don't have to change the home you love and live in.

      - Much. You just have to add some smart details...

      A child toddles out of a bedroom, holding toys.

      - For instance, if you like hanging out on your comfy sofa.

      A family is gathered on a living room sofa, reading the child a bedtime story.

      - How could we add to that comfort?

      The camera sweeps across a sideboard with a lamp and SYMFONISK WiFi speaker.

      - What if you could control the lights?

      A person screws a smart lightbulb into a lamp.

      - Easy! Set the mood with your fingertips.

      A finger presses a white remote control, and the bulb lights up. Other light fixtures turn on and off, including one that flashes different colours.

      - What else can we make smarter?

      We see the family on the sofa again.

      - How about sound? You can connect that too. So you won't have to leave the sofa. Only continue chilling, and change the scene to...

      The father and child read a book together. A person places a white SYMFONISK table lamp speaker on a sideboard. Another white SYMFONISK bookshelf speaker is placed on a sideboard, and switched on.

      - Night club.

      The child dances in the living room, as his parents smile and look on.

      - And when you have to get up way too early on a Tuesday morning. Why not let the outside world in, nice and slowly, with your connected blinds.

      The man is sleeping in bed. Sunlight streams into the room, as grey smart blinds slowly open automatically.

      - Yeah. Your life at home is many different things, and finally there is an easy way for you to control most of it, anyway you want it to.

      A hand reaches for a mobile phone, next to a smart gateway. The lights dim as the family enjoys dinner together.

      - Automatically, with your voice, the app, or with remotes. Like a good night's sleep. It starts with a click.

      A motion-activated table lamp switches on as the child runs by. The man silently moves his mouth, and a SYMFONISK table lamp speaker lights up. The couple get ready for bed by using a shortcut button to dim the lights and close the blinds.

      - There you go. IKEA Home smart.

      We zoom out to a view of the family’s home as a dollhouse.

      Can I use IKEA home smart without a gateway?

      No, you cannot. Without the gateway, the IKEA Home smart app will not control your IKEA Home smart products. The gateway is a small device that connects your IKEA Home smart products to your IKEA Home smart app via your home WiFi network, so that you can control your lights and more through a mobile device from anywhere in your home.

      I can't connect my app/phone to my gateway. What am I doing wrong?

      2. Verify that the gateway is connected to your home router via a cable and that the router has internet connectivity.
      3. To continue, you need to download the IKEA Home smart app from Apple App Store or Google Play and follow the step-by-step guide in the app to set up your gateway.

      5. Find the QR code on the back of your gateway and scan it with your mobile phone, following the instructions in the app. If you have a problem scanning the code, you can type the gateway code manually. You’ll find the gateway code on the back of your gateway. If you still have a problem, check that all cables are connected and then try again.
      6. Ensure that your mobile phone is connected to your Wi-Fi network; the same network the gateway is connected to.
      7. If you have problems, set up the gateway by following the steps in the app. You can reset your products by carrying out a factory reset and installing again.
