Best solution I have seen for home automationJohannyThere are many solutions for home automation in the market, but TRÅDFRI is the best in my opinion for these reasons. 1- Works; 2- Affordable; 3- Secure as no need to integrate with another hub or voice assistant; 4- If using voice assistant (Alexa/Siri that I have tried) works perfectly. 5- backed by IKEA standards; 6- product lasts as IKEA's product life is longer than others.5

This is embarrassing Ikea. Not a quality product.Cat dogI purchase the Sonos speaker and the Kallax shelves for delivery. I went to Ikea to Sacramento when it reopened to purchase a few more things. I notice the remote for the speaker. I took it home to use it with the speaker. I check online again before using. Should have check the reviews first because of the low score it needs a gateway. I had to go back to Ikea which is 50 mins plus away from my house. I decided to purchase the gateway along with the light bulb kit. I already own Samsung Smarthings. It has work great and pairs directly with wifi. This item is a joke. First off it only works plugged into the route. Come on it 2020 can't it pair wireless like Samsung. Next it keeps cutting in and out always need to refresh before able to use. The route is in the garage it a hassle. I try to used the remote it doesn't even work. I should have done more research this speaker is only wifi enable which is limited like the HomePod. Now I have to make a third trip and return everything. Thank god for 1 year return I will wait for Emeryville to reopen much closer to my house.1
RevolutionarymilesofSet up was OK. Connecting remotes can be tricky. I connected this to Apple Home, and now my favorite thing is saying Good night to Siri at night and seeing all my lights turn off. In the morning, a timer turns on my lights at just the right dimness and color, and my workspace has its lights on bright from 9am-6pm. And when we're out of town, we use it to play music and turn on lights to appear like we're home. Life will never be the same, I promise.5
Useless with Fyrtur BlindsBlueAZAbsolutely will not work with the Fyrtur blinds. May work with other of Ikea's smart home hardware, but I didn't try. There's no tech support, and there are many reviews on other sites with similar problems.1
Never got it runningbobtinsI'm an experienced computer professional and can usually figure these things out, but this thing didn't get very far at all. - plugged the gateway into power and ethernet - verified that it showed up on the list of devices on my router, and was assigned an IP - downloaded the app and tried to contact the gateway - was never able to contact the gateway, after multiple restarts and manual entry of gateway IP, etc. The app appears to be designed for easy setup when everything is OK, but not to provide useful info when anything goes wrong. For example, the gateway has three lights for power, internet, and network, which appears to refer to the TRADFRI network. The network light is pulsing, and according to the print manual (the app doesn't say anything about this), it means that no connected TRADFRI devices are found which is correct because I haven't gotten that far. Yet, the app tells me I should restart the gateway and expect all lights to be solid. Then if I click the question mark for troubleshooting it gets an error loading the HTTPS URL. If I try the URL ( on my computer, I get a redirect. This is pretty pathetic.1
Affordable SolutionVIN786This was bought so I could get the Ikea smart app to work with my Ikea electirc blinds. It's an affordable solution, although quite not affordable. Well, all my smart things at home connect directly to my router, why we need this gateway for the electric blinds, I have no idea. The team who designs hardware for smart products at Ikea should update their knowledge and insist the management to go the Smart route by not having to use a gateway. Imagine how many gateways I will have if all smart products sold require it's own proprietary gateways'! Pros: It works, although very finicky to start after you add to your network, but it gets pretty good after you have one Ikea smart product working. After you pair the first Ikea product, the rest of the smart products get paired very quickly. And I was impressed that the range is pretty good too, through the walls. Cons: It did not allow me to connect once I was out of the house and not on the local LAN, that to me is a big problem. I will try again but true remote control does not work. With other smart products available from other companies, I am able to connect remotely, for example light switches, and believe it or not they are at par or below the prices at Ikea, PLUS they don't require a proprietary gateway!3
Won"t update firmware; can"t integrate with GooglePapaJohnJust purchased this device. It has good potential. But it came with firmware version 1.2.42, which is almost two years old and doesn't support integration with Google Assistant. According to a non-Ikea support group that this firmware version can't be updated through certain routers, which appears to be the case in my home. The stated solution from Ikea is to take the unit to a friend's router and try to update it there. Shouldn't the unit at the store be sold with a more recent firmware that actually can be updated???1
Terrible connectivitySammmmmmmmmmmThese the gateway connects to the smart devices using Bluetooth, and the app can only support one gateway, so, unless you live in a studio apartment, nothing will stay connected to the gateway unless they’re both in the same room. Absolutely useless.1
No internet access... What year is it?nebulightFirst off, this tradfri system is a great value for the money! I originally purchased this with my new kitchen for under cabinet lights and quickly added a few smart outlets for other things around the house and plan to add a few bulbs as well. I have been very pleased with how well it works out of the box. However I find it pretty lacking that it ONLY works off your local wifi connection and does not work over the internet (IE I can't make any changes unless I'm at home). The Gateway is on the network, so why can't it get out to the internet. I do not have Alexa, Google Home or Homekit from Apple so maybe if you link to one of those it would work. This should be a simple addition to allow access over the internet so I hope it comes in the future. Just link it to my ikea account I already have.3
Mixed Reviewms2sfcaThis review is about all of the components of the Tradfri system not just the Gateway. I have an Ikea tower light which I cannot connect a regular dimmer to. So I bought the Tradfri system. You need the remote control to connect to the gateway. You need to sync the remote control to the lights. This was not easy and it took a lot of trial and error. A few days later I had to resync a couple of light bulbs. At first I could control the lights using Google Assistant, it acknowledges the command saying it turned off 4 lights but nothing happens. The remote control does still work. The remote is limited to 10 items , bulbs, but the gateway can connect to many more. I can't figure out how to get more items connected to the gateway since I can only use the remote which has a limits of 10. There are other smart home devices in the market which you might want to check out as well. When this works it is awesome. I can turn off all living room lights, or just certain lamps, or even individual bulbs.3
Needs a remote to even work???NotHappy42Bought the gateway and the specific bulbs I needed not knowing I had to get a remote even set the stupid thing up (The package for the gateway does not indicate that anywhere) drove all the way home (4 hours) and tried to set it up just to find out the app wont even let you pair the bulbs without a stupid remote I am never going to use. What a terrible waste of money.1
Works as advertisedMryuksWas easy to set up, but wish there was no need for a bridge to interface to homekit5
Easy to Use and Set upThe Working HousewifeI had to buy this to use with the Ikea smart bulbs. I read the reviews before I bought and thought it was going to be complicated but it was the complete opposite. Set up was breeze it only took me about 10 minutes, just make sure you don't forget to buy a remote other than that you shouldn't have any issues.5
Great affordable gatewayQuarterSwedeWhat is a gateway? In order to understand that. Trådfri uses the Zigbee wireless standard to communicate between devices and not Wi-Fi. A gateway basically allows those devices to communicate to your Wi-Fi and/or wired network. In order to pair and use any Trådfri devices you must first have a Zigbee gateway. Essentially, you plug it into a usb power source and then into your Wi-Fi or wired router. Follow the instruction in the Trådfri app and you’re set. Will this allow you to communicate while not on the network? No. You will need a hub for that. An Alexa device, Google Home, AppleTV, HomePod, etc. depending on the brand your control device is (Amazon Alexa, Android, iPhone, iPad, etc.).5
Don’t forget the remote or it won’t workDLMTechI bought this cause I thought I needed it to control the closet lights transformer but I couldn’t set up the hub because I didn’t have a remote control. Apparently you pair the remote with the hub and the remote with the transformer. In the end I found out my transformer could be connected to my Phillips Hue hub and this ikea hub was not needed1
did not fullfil my expectationscamechiI bought it 3 days ago and I am planning to return it to the store today. the price is great compared with other brands however it is not worth it. Cheap quality, design, difficult to set up if you have Alexa (for example). I would rather pay more money and save time and frustration1

IKEA Home smart

What defines a smart product? The possibility to connect it to the Internet? That it’s wireless? To us, it’s a product that makes the everyday easier.

Most people who want to make their home smarter, start with the lighting. When you add the TRÅDFRI gateway, you can make it even smarter. Together with connected lamps you can set different scenes and timers – so you always wake up with a soft, gentle light in the mornings and can call ‘lights out’ when it’s bedtime. “You can connect many different product types to the TRÅDFRI gateway. All to make your life at home more convenient, in more than one way,” says Rebecca Töreman who works with connected products at IKEA.

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!”

If it’s simple to use, it’s smart

With the help of the TRÅDFRI gateway, IKEA connected products can be steered through the IKEA Home smart app or a voice assistant like Amazon Alexa, Apple Siri or Google Assistant. Say ‘dinner time’ to dim the lights and play your favorite music in the background. Or flood the room with light so no spot or crumb can hide when it’s time to clean up. “We’re using a standard technology and adapting it to peoples’ needs as home furnishing specialists, not tech specialists. We want our connected products to be easy to use – you shouldn’t have to be an engineer to make them work,” says Rebecca.

More connected products are coming

From being toys mostly for people interested in new gadgets, connected products have become useful instruments to tackle common everyday inconveniences. It has inspired Rebecca and her colleagues to explore more ways to make the home more comfortable. Blinds that automatically open while you’re still in bed is one example. “We’re continuously adding new products that work with TRÅDFRI gateway and the IKEA Home smart app. You can update your home with new functions and make it as smart as you want, in the pace you prefer.”
