Works FineBrandonI had to buy a few of these because every now and then you'll run into a defective one.. That goes for all of the lighting components.. These things are mass-produced and the quality varies.
Remote works as it should but had pairing issuesRyanI bought the RODRET switch to connect to the Tradfri for undercab lighting. My first attempt to pair the remote (like I have done on numerous other ikea smart home pairing products without issues) proved unsuccessful. After an hour trying I returned this item thinking it was defective. Purchased replacements and still had the same issue. It wasn't till reading a snippet in the install video I opened via QR code in directions that it is mentioned to FACTORY RESET THE REMOTE by clicking the pairing button 4 times fast within 5 seconds. Crazy you need to do this from factory but once I did that it connected like normal.
Seems like it may actually be an issue with certain remotes. Anyways try factory resetting the remote before attempting to pair if you have issues similar to mine.
Smart hubBryantdidn't know you needed the smart hub to use it haven't used.
Great lightGraceSo far so good. Installation was simple
Great “smart” device that won’t work with any Smart EcosystemsJayOk. So this is a seemingly well thought out device, good features and a remote (just like we dreamed in the 80s). It has Zigby functions to it, which also seems like it would work with other ecosystems. It doesn’t. Unless you want to load up the IKEA app (distraerte app for their items) this seemingly awesome device is still a stand alone device with 2 remote controls. The physical one, and your phone. No way to automate, or create scenes or connect it to other smart lightning in your home. Very disappointed with this choice by IKEA. Even the cheap China-produced EBay type smart devices will integrate with Alexa, Google, HomeKit, SmartThings, etc. no such luck here. Unfortunate. Will be turning ours. This isn’t smart tech.
Works great, but instructions are lackingRonWell designed, thoughtful add-ons, like a frame that holds the magnetic remote to a wood service. Only problem was connecting it. I'm not using a hub, and instructions are massively brief. BE SURE TO OPEN THE BATTERY COMPARTMENT TO PAIR IT. THE PAIR BUTTON IS HIDDEN INSIDE THE BATTERY COMPARTMENT. HOLD THE REMOTE WITHIN 2 INCHES i!!!!) OF THE RECEIVER (in my case it was the Tradfri). HOLD THE PAIR BUTTON DOWN FOR 5-10 SECONDS TO GET IT TO PAIR. After this it worked great. But it took a couple of hours of searching to find out how to do this.
Does Not WorkPenniThis is horrible. Did not work on any of the smart lights that I have from Ikea, and now, I can't get my lights to dim. Returning.
Great Remote for Undercounter LightingLynnThis is our 5th Ikea under-cabinet lighting installation, and I have to say, this is my favorite remote! It's intuitive to use, small enough to be comfy in one's hand, and sit on a window ledge, but large enough to not get lost! Syncing it to 3 controllers went fairly easily, and everything is working great!
Works great DeanDimmer works great and easy to set up
Easy to installSdWe have had a ton of problems with the other light switches connecting. This worked well and connected immediately.
Works better than expectedDanielGood remote switch/dimmer. Great hanging system to put it just about anywhere. I would have given it a 5, but for two things. 1. AAA battery instead of the more common AA (minor issue) 2. The instructions to pair it were vague relating to the equipment I had. (Spolier alert: pairing really was simple once I figured it out)
