Works as advertisedNeilThis small module powers 3 lights that I purchased for my Billy bookcases. It was easy to install and use. My only complaint was it doesn't include a power cord so you need to purchase one separately. 4
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. 4

Works perfectReyesThis connector works as it should. The good thing you can get one that has three outlets or even more. Depending of what you are needing. Super easy to install and functional. Works perfect with the Styrbar5
Great productArielEasy to assemble5
Will not pair with remoteLisaPurchased two of these, for two different areas. One paired quickly with remote. The other will not pair with any remote or hub. Returning it as faulty. Other reviewers mention same pairing issue. There may be a quality problem.2
Very practicalSylvieVery practical5
Was working for couple years...DmitriWas working with 2 pull out storage lights, died after couple of years of a very careful usage. Have to buy a new one or probably a more powerful one, just in case.3
Works well but confusing packageYuanwenI bought this with the YTBERG / TRÅDFRI package, which includes FOUR lights, power cord and drive. But this drive can only connect three. So what should I do to the fourth light? To buy an extra drive or just waste the light? Very awkward choice.3
Works greatAliceWorks great5
Deceptive packaging and marketingDerekVery confusing when buying. I have never used because I am done throwing money away to get all the parts I need to get the original light I bought. Packaging only shows picture with no description of what else you need to buy.1
kitchen lightingPatThis version of the driver will accept all the light bars we need for under counter lighting. The entire system was easy to install and set up. The only issue for installation was my personal inability to hold the piece in place while installing in the screws. Painters tape to the rescue!5
Great kitchen lighting power supplyToddFlawless wireless lighting control for under cabinets5
DisappointedJenniferCould not pair the lights to the remote. Big hassle to get help online or in store. I finally Gave up and returned the lights and all the components.1
Great little office lightsToddGot these lights to brighten the home office to do zoom meetings 👍5
junkVerified Buyerthis thing doesn't work. first you need to make sure you get a cable to be able to use it. I spent hours trying to pair it with a remote controller. this should be literally a 1 minute thing. such a waste of money and time!1
Can't connect any of the power supplies to remoteEliasVery buggy, can't connect any 30w tradfri supply to the remote.1
For Alexa, you’ll need the gateway AND a remoteJeffSupposedly you can pair with Hue hub but that wasn’t my case. I had to buy the gateway only to learn that you need to set up a remote or dinner or other controller as a first step — but WHY? This is such a bad design.5
Do a little research and follow the directions.Verified BuyerI was compelled to create an account to write a review for this product (and all of the Trådfri line). These products are excellent and work exactly as they should! I’ve read all of the negative reviews - people complaining about no included power cords, exceeding the allowable wattage, not being able to pair devices to the hub, etc., etc. Sorry but this is all user error or just plain user laziness. I have over a dozen bulbs, many remotes, drivers, under-counter led strips, and outlets all connected to the TRÅDFRI hub and working perfectly. The only issues I’ve ever occasionally had are with pairing remotes to the hub. But I solved this by restarting the process. IKEA is constantly updating the TRÅDFRI software and firmware for all of the devices and this can sometimes take time. Sometimes people just need to admit when they don’t understand something rather than writing negative reviews out of frustration. Do a little research on the products (you can download all of the instructions for EVERY ikea products including the TRÅDFRI line). Download the instructions and see what you need for your intended use before you purchase and surely before you start spewing negative reviews. Again, the TRÅDFRI line is excellent and I hope IKEA continues to improve and expand it.5
Tradfri line has got to go.JeremyI know this is quite a negative review so I apologize for this. I had to buy three different Tradfri products. I first bought a smart plug version. That is when I found out that I wasn't going to get away with paying less than 10 bucks for a working switch. So, I bought the product this review is for. I returned it so I never used it, but we also discovered that there is still a requirement to buy a USB cable for this. We returned the above product and got the Tradfri hub. We thought this would be the last expense on this. We were so wrong. We get the hub home, set it up. Guess what product it won't work with. Yes, the very smart plug we had already purchased. That was it for us. We returned that hub as soon as we could. Why do I say the line has got to go? Because value minded people who want a working smart plug should not have to buy more than one product to have the desired smart feature in their homes. A plug should be ALL YOU NEED and it should be compatible with Alexa, Apple, and Google home products. FULL STOP. For the price I would have had to pay to achieve this with Ikea's Tradfri line I could have bought 5 smart plugs from Amazon, which is exactly what we did. Also, if you want people to not be inconvenienced by multiple trips to Ikea, it would be helpful to have these products in a better lit area of the stores and to have very explicit signage so there is no ambiguity as to which products the consumer will need and what products each part is compatible with.1

Easy and affordable home lighting technology

Rebecca Töreman is facing a group of journalists. They’re visiting the headquarters of IKEA design with hopes of getting a glimpse of innovative products. They bustle to see and touch what Rebecca and her team have spent the last two years creating: the IKEA Smart lighting range.

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 cozy 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 personalized 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 on 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!”
