IKEA of Sweden
You can add up to 10 lamps or smaller appliances so that all of them turn on or off at same time.
You need one of the steering devices in the TRÅDFRI series (remote control, wireless dimmer or wireless motion sensor) in order to connect your control outlet with the gateway and the app.

A bit expensive but worth it.Verified ReviewerI use these with switch and I integrate them into Google home so I have the best of both worlds.
I use them to turn on light, fans, etc.
The Ikea android app could be better but overall they deliver a good product that works well.5
Very handyAnonymous reviewerI bought few of these at the beginning of 2020 and now before Christmas I bought 3 more. Had trouble adding them into the Ikea app with the remote. However after resetting and pairing the remote again, I was able to add them very easily. They make my life easier with all the automation. Haven't had any issues with them until a week ago when 2 became unreachable. Wasn't able to switch off the lights from my phone or voice. Finally after switching the sockets off for few seconds and switching them back on, they came back to life and no problem since. Bit worrying though if I was away on a holiday and the plugs become unreachable, the lights (or other appliances) will stay turned on the whole time. Hope it was just the one off... Otherwise very happy with them, the price is a great value5
Does what it says onVerified ReviewerDoes what it says on the box.5
Excellent Zigbee Smart PlugVerified ReviewerExcellent addition to my home automation, pairs with my Hubitat hub with no issues (after a reset). My only minor issue is there is no way of switching it on and off from the plug itself.5
Works with SmartThingsVerified ReviewerYou don’t need a Gateway or any steering device as these work natively with the SmartThings hub. I have a SmartThings hub with various smart items from different manufacturers. These outlets are brilliant and pair locally with the SmartThings hub - no Ikea gateway required.5
Great value for moneyVerified ReviewerWork perfectly with a Conbee-II and Deconz via Home Assistant. At this price they're hard to beat!5
Simple to use & works brilliantly with Philips HueVerified ReviewerThe socket was easy to set up with the Ikea hub and remote switch, but it was also very easy to add to my existing Philips Hue network - although the unit appeared as an on/off lamp, rather than an accessory socket as I expected. Once added to the Hue system, it could be controlled and scheduled as any other device, and added to rooms and scenes like a Hue product, and will also appear on the Alexa app if you have an Echo or similar device. These sockets are around a third of the cost of the Philips versions, making them a great alternative, and this allows you to use them without the Ikea hub if you already have an existing Hue system at home.5
Verified ReviewerGreat product works well.5
No longer working, Hard reset does not workVerified ReviewerHave 2 of these, both initially connected to Trader hub no issues. Then one started to drop off almost everyday. Needed just a mains switch reboot to reset & then worked fine. Then that wouldn't work and the other control outlet dropped from Hub not seen for 3 days. I have done hard reset on both then tried pairing with remote which seems to work but doesn't reconnect to hub. So deleted both from hub, nothing I do will now make them connect. No support online apart from hard reset & start again which I have done many times.1
Work Great with Apple HomeKitVerified ReviewerVery badly advertised. This plug is useless on it's own. To get a basic setup, you need at least one plug and one steering device (a remote control.) You can then control the plug (on/off) with the remote control. You can control up to 10 plugs with the remote control. They will all do the exact same. Power on/off all 10 plugs. Not very useful, they are capable of far more! Add the Round Base Station and cable that into your Router and you can now get the power of the toys. You will now be able to use the App on your phone. This now allows individual control of the devices. eg. Power On/Off each plug individually. This means to get control from your phone, you need at least 1 plug, one remote control, and 1 Hub. Note that the remote control is probably only going to be used to pair the plug to the Hub, and then you'll do everything from your phone. Once you have this all working with the IKEA app, you can add the Hub to your Apple HomeKit by scanning the code on the back of the Hub. Now you can get HomeKit automations and Siri integration, and you have the full power of the setup. (Alexa needs a similar setup to HomeKit) Once you have this stuff working HomeKit, it's great. Plugs are cheap and you can just keep expanding it. The same is true for the Light Bulbs. You need the bulb, a remotr control and the hub to control them from your phone or Alexa or Siri. Initial setup is more expensive than initially expected as you need a plug (£10) Remote (£15) Hub(£25) but once you have that, each additional plug is just £10.5
Would probably be a fantastic product butVerified ReviewerWould probably be a fantastic product but nowhere did it say that a gateway was need so I now have 2 smart plugs that are useless well advertised not1
Great when you pair it with a 'steering device'.Verified ReviewerDoes what it should, gives control (on / off) to a mains socket. No problems so far, easy to set up. Happy.5
Wireless control plugVerified ReviewerHaving problems sometimes it works sometimes it doesn’t. We spoke to a staff member and they said to return it as it sounds faulty. We have another plug the same and that one works perfectly and has done so for the last 9 months.3
Works well and great valueVerified ReviewerThis is superb value and I prefer Zigbee to the more common WiFi as it is more power efficient and designed for this type of usage. I use these directly with an Amazon Echo Plus rather than the Tradfri gateway as I find this more reliable and feature complete.5
Tradfri smart outletVerified ReviewerThis outlet is okay, it's quite minimal, but lacks a manual switch on it, there are times when you want it to just act like a normal outlet3
Brilliant socketAnonymous reviewerA brilliant socket and price. I have 8 of these connected to my Smartthings system at home and they do a great job at a fraction of the price of a smartthings socket which costs about £40. Just one feature missing which needs to be added - a manual button to turn the socket on or off.5
Great homekit plugsVerified ReviewerI bought these as they are the only homekit plugs in UK that I am aware of that work with a hub and not direct wifi or bluetooth. You need the Tradfri gateway for this. I only wish Ikea would make the pairing process easier. Works with all the major voice assists too. Love them. They are small but not as small as some of the others I have seen. Also, you can't just buy this on its own. You will need a steering device to pair it with the hub.4
Broke within a monthVerified ReviewerBought one of these and it stopped working after a month, it started to turn our tv on and off repeatedly. Reset and resynced and problem comes back again straight away.1
Verified ReviewerAsked if it worked with Alexa, told it would. But it doesn’t.1
Excellent productVerified ReviewerWhat more is there to say. It does exactly what it says on the tin.5
Plastic is a key material for IKEA and remains so going forward. It is strong, durable, lightweight and versatile. It is a main component in a large amount of our products and has a wide variety of applications from surface materials such as paint and foil, to screws and shelf pegs.
There is a lot of valid concern regarding how plastic impacts the environment and at IKEA we take this very seriously. As part of our larger circular journey and transition from virgin fossil based material, we are working hard to change all plastic in our home furnishing products to plastic made from recycled and/or renewable raw materials.
Rebecca is ready. She knows the reasoning and effort behind every aspect of the range, and she can explain how it will change life at home for the better. But her audience is enthralled with something she forgot could be exciting.
“People were amazed with the remote,” says Rebecca. “That you could steer your lamps from wherever you are.” She laughs, pleased to be reminded it can be a delight to control the brightness or tone of a bulb remotely. “When you work with it so closely you get used to the products and the things they can do,” says Rebecca. “So, when you hear people ‘oh’ and ‘ah’ over the design and function of the remote—which I see every day—you feel very proud of what you’ve accomplished.”
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!”
Only recycled or renewable plastic
Plastic is most commonly derived from oil and gas, which are non-renewable fossil sources. These sources do not renew themselves and will eventually be depleted.
Our ambition is that by 2030, all plastic used in our products will be based on renewable or recycled materials. Renewable plastic is made from materials such as vegetable oil, corn, wheat grain and sugar cane. Recycled plastic allows us to give a second life to non-biodegradable products such as PET bottles that would otherwise end up in landfill. Using recyclable sources also lessens our dependency on oil as a raw material.
Currently more than 40% of our plastic products are based on recycled and renewable materials and our aim is to reach 100%. As we add products made from recycled and renewable materials to our offer, we hope to inspire other companies to do the same.
Phasing out single-use plastic
Single-use plastic items pollute ecosystems if not disposed of responsibly. As part of our commitment to people and the planet, all single-use plastic products from the global home furnishing range were phased out in 2020. This includes items such as plates, cups and plastic straws offered in our restaurants, bistros, and cafes. These were replaced by disposables made from 100% renewable sources.
PET and PP, our most commonly used plastics
Polythylene terephthalate (PET) and Polypropylene (PP) are durable, hygienic and shatter-resistant plastics. They absorb very little water and have good chemical resistance. Both PET and PP can be reused and recycled, which reduces waste and gives the product several lives through use and reuse.
PET is the most recycled plastic in the world and can be used for many different purposes such as plastic bottles and containers for packaging food and beverages as well as for personal care products, pharmaceuticals and many other consumer products. At IKEA we mainly use recycled PET in boxes, filling material for textiles and kitchen front foil.
PET is approved by health-agencies as safe to use for food and beverage. IKEA uses recycled PET that is post-consumer based, which means it is based on collected and sorted PET bottles.
Clean and safe
IKEA takes product safety very seriously and all products are tested and comply with the strictest possible laws and safety standards on all IKEA markets. Customers should always feel confident that products bought at IKEA are safe and healthy to use. IKEA wants to minimize or totally refrain from the use of chemicals and substances that can be harmful to people and the environment.
Together, we can do more
Our journey towards only using recycled or renewable plastic will take some time and require new ways of doing things, but we are determined to take responsibility and find new solutions. We want to give our customers the possibility to choose products made from more sustainable materials that can be recycled again one day. Together, we can make a big difference!
