TRÅDFRI App & Gateway

What is the TRÅDFRI gateway?

The TRÅDFRI gateway is a small hub that connects your light sources to your TRÅDFRI app via your home Wi-Fi network. This way you can control your lights from a mobile device anywhere in your home. The TRÅDFRI app will not control your IKEA Smart lighting without the gateway.

What do I need to use the TRÅDFRI gateway and TRÅDFRI app?

You need to have Wi-Fi, a cable connection, an IKEA Smart lighting light source and a steering device.

Does the TRÅDFRI app cost anything?

No, TRÅDFRI app can be downloaded for free. 

How do I change the pre-set language on the app?

Go to settings (the gear icon in the upper right corner of the home screen). Then go to language settings and pick the language of your choice.

Where do I find the version number of the TRÅDFRI app?

In the TRÅDFRI app you can find the version number at the bottom of the settings page under “Clear all settings”.
In the App Store and on Google Play, there is a section called “Version” and you can find the version number there.

How many family members can simultaneously control the light sources from smart devices using the TRÅDFRI app?

The TRÅDFRI gateway supports up to 10 smart devices connected at the same time.

If I have a non-gateway system and want to add a TRÅDFRI gateway. Will my current smart lighting products automatically show up in the TRÅDFRI app?

No, you need to do a factory reset of your steering device and add it to your gateway. After that, pair your light sources with that device. You will be guided step-by-step on how to do it in the TRÅDFRI app.

How can I check whether I have a direct Wi-Fi connection with the gateway?

You will have an indication on the gateway when it´s connected to your home Wi-Fi.

How do I install an update in the TRÅDFRI app?

The update is installed by accepting the update when prompted in the TRÅDFRI app.

When should I disconnect from the gateway in the app settings and what will happen when I press it?

You would press “disconnect” from the gateway if you want connect to another gateway. Think about the scenario of having one gateway at work and one at home. In order to jump from one to the other you need to “log off”. All settings (moods groups) will be stored in the gateways, without the possibility to transfer them from one to another. 

Can I control my light sources from the TRÅDFRI app when I'm not at home?

No, you can only control your light sources when you are within your Wi-Fi range (local network).

The TRÅDFRI app works with Android (KitKat 4.4, Lollipop 5.0 or later) and iOS (iOS 8 or later).
