An introduction to a smart home

With a smart home from IKEA, your everyday moments at home are more convenient and joyful for everyone in it. A smart home can gently wake you up in the morning, get you and your home ready for the tasks the day will bring, and then help you wind down in the evening, getting ready for as good sleep as possible - all enabled by DIRIGERA hub and IKEA Home smart app.

A smart home for everyone

Understanding all sides of life at home is the reason why IKEA keeps improving the range and offering smart products like speakers, air purifiers, LED bulbs, control outlets, motion sensors, blinds and remote controls.

By adding DIRIGERA hub to your smart home, you get even more functions and digital features from your smart products, and you are in full control via the IKEA Home smart app. Change to purple party lighting in the living room, check the air purifier's status before going to bed, turn off the coffee machine, make sure the children’s midnight-potty-break night lamp is on, or automatically run a Scene that rolls down the blinds at sunset – all from the same screen.

Experience what a smart home could do for you

With so many possibilities offered, it might not be a given as to where to begin. That’s why we’ve set up a virtual smart home for you to test out and try. Here you can turn the lights on and off or change their colours. Open the blinds for the fresh morning light and then close them as the evening winds down. Turn up the volume for a party or lower it when it's time to relax.


How to get started

No matter what part of your everyday life that you begin improving with a smart home, DIRIGERA hub is the heart of the system of connected lighting, sound, air, blinds, and accessories. And guess what? There’s no need to rewire your home!

Imagine that it’s finally time to wind down after a stressful day. With the push of a button, your evening routine begins. The block-out blinds in the bedroom roll down, a calming playlist starts streaming from the speakers, the air purifiers improve the bedroom’s air quality, and the bedside lamp lights up to remind you of that new book waiting for you.

A home that gets smarter with time

The DIRIGERA hub and the IKEA Home smart app offer multiple added benefits to making the everyday life at home more efficient, more convenient and simply more adapted to you. You have more ways to control your smart products and more digital features, compared to using smart products from IKEA without the hub.

It’s also easy to expand your smart home set-up with time and make it even smarter. Start with the rooms used the most, like the living room or bedroom, to find the smart solutions that suit you and your home. The next time you come home with a new smart product from IKEA, the app will guide you step-by-step as to how to add it to your smart home.

Your smart home will only keep getting smarter, but never outsmart you. As we keep developing digital features and smart products with new functions, you keep personalising your own experience. You’re in control.

Manage your home from the sofa

With DIRIGERA hub in your home, you get new ways of managing your smart products from IKEA – individually, by room or simultaneously – especially since the hub enables the use of the IKEA Home smart app. Everyone in the home with a mobile device or tablet can download and use the app to control the home, and remote controls are the perfect tool for guests or when they quickly want to turn on, off or dim lights.

Use the app to dim the lights and change to warmer tones above the coffee table to appease tired evening eyes. Use the remote control later to turn off the same lights. Ask your voice assistant to turn up the music when your hands are busy chopping tomatoes. Schedule the bedroom air purifier to prepare for bedtime. And press a shortcut button by the door when leaving out the door to run the Scene where everything is safely turned off (including the shirt steamer).

IKEA Home smart app

The IKEA Home smart app will be the main access to your smart home when you use it with DIRIGERA hub. The app guides you through the process of setting up and managing your smart products, placing them in your rooms at home, and scheduling things you want to run on their own via timers. You and everyone in the home can choose quick tasks like checking what lights are turned on and off, what level the air purifier is running on and the name of that song being looped upstairs.

In the IKEA Home smart app, you have the option to connect to a voice assistant and control your smart home with the sound of your voice. IKEA Home smart works with Google Home, Apple Home and Alexa.

The IKEA Home smart app is available on the App Store for iPhone or Google Play for Android.
