How it all works

When you add the TRÅDFRI gateway to your home WiFi router and download the IKEA Home smart app, the real magic begins. The gateway will then be able to talk to your connected IKEA Home smart products. You can add smart lighting 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, and setting different moods in the app which you can activate with a tap.
