Works great to turn things on and offKrisWorks great! Easy to set up. I just wish it would tell you how much power is being used. (5 stars if power monitoring was available.)4
Works wellMikeSetup was fairly easy and quick. I currently have mine controlling standard lights and I’ve had no functionality issues. It works efficiently with Alexa voice controls. My only complaint is the form factor could be less bulky. Other than that, great product.5
Affordable, easy to use, reliable!ChristopherWe have upgraded to multiple units throughout the house, they work well!5
Not enough upfront information about needed devicesRenardo B.I read the description and decided to buy a few of these for my home believing I could just connect to it via the hub and app only to be surprised by the fact that it won't set up without an unnecessary remote control device. This is a very clunky setup. I do not recommend buying this device. You can find simple and easy to setup wifi outlets online that don't require this unnecessary complexity for operating1
Great Smart Plug Needs Updated DesignBENThe Tradri smart plug works great, is easy to install and manage. As I already have an IKEA smart home it integrated easily into my system. The is one of the better valued small plugs for the price. Why 3 stars? The design of the casing that holds the plug and wifi/smart hardware. It is large and bulky, it can make it so you can only use 1 outlet plug. It is due for an updated design, please. The Home Smart App continues to improve especially the UI and features.3
Easy integration with Home AssistantKarl T.Effortless integration and control with Home Assistant using Zigbee. Zero issues after three weeks of use. Highly recommended over the Wi-Fi waste on Amazon.5
Works wellLeRoyThis switch works smoothly; with is had a dimming function4
Works as expectedHARLANPurchased 3 units. Included directions useless. Backs can't be removed to reset. Need to use paperclip inserted into hole to reset units. Units are a little larger than expected.5
Easy and works as designedFrederikVery simple device that will allow you to turn a device on and off remote. Currently using for our Christmas tree with Siri and HomeKit. Slightly bulky, but not bad.5
Prepare to spend an additional $35ALLISONI purchased this, thinking this was all I needed. (I've purchased plugs from other companies and only needed an app to control them). When I went to set it up, it said I needed the Ikea Gateway which is an additional $35. Nowhere on the display or on the website description does it say that this is needed. I'm returning it.1
smartfanncynancyThis took a several times for my device to be recognized, longer than usual? I wish it was a bit smaller, but I really like the Tradfri outlets & bulbs.5
setup is difficult until it becomes easyMICHAELonce you figure out all of the pieces that are required to make this work, it is great. you need a tradfri hub and a tradfri switch to get this work.4
Just missing a manual button...DiggieWorks great with SmartThings. The main things it is missing are: - The load limits printed on the box - A manual on/off toggle button on the unit. Sometimes you're right next to the outlet and using an app or voice assistant is less convenient. A tad bulky but I can live with it for the price.4
Works great (SmartThings hub)StevejacktimWe just bought 3 of these after finding out they work with SmartThings. One review gave advice on connecting already but I found that the easiest way is to reset the plug with a pin on the side, then add manually by searching IKEA and choose control outlet from the list and that’s it. This worked the first time on one but took a couple tries on the others. If it gets to 80% and gets stuck don’t waste your time just cancel and restart. Scanning did not work for me. No other hardware was needed besides the plug and SmartThings hub.5
On and off remote switchLeighBallI bought this in hopes to control some lights in my home. Easy set up, works great, I found that YouTube had better set up instructions. Does not dim the lights tho, just off and on.3
Great wireless solutionPharmx2Unit works as expected, and integrated with all of our other Ikea remote lights. We love the timer feature.5
Won’t connectWill555I bought five of these outlets and three of them wouldn’t connect to my network. I’ve tried resetting them and followed the exact same pairing sequence, but only two will connect.1
Worked with no issues.Satisfied userI have a Samsung Smart things hub. I simply plugged the outlet in, let it boot, and then pressed the reset. I then set my hub to find new items and it found instantly. Works flawlessly. Only drawback is that it is a little large.5
Works GreatchrislaudermilkI bought this for two reasons. First is to get the china cabinet on the smart home setup and eliminate the need to manually turn on and off multiple interior lights. It works perfectly for that. Second is to act as a repeater for some light bulbs that are a bit too far from my hub to link where they are. It also worked perfectly for that. I have this connected directly to my SmartThings hub and it was a pretty easy setup. Just needed to poke the reset button to get it to pairing mode & be patient in the app. The only minor complaint I have is it's a fairly sizable lump. I had to use a short flat plug extension cord to move it.5
trishariabI wanted to offer help to anyone else trying to connect with Smarthings (it does work without the TRADFRI gateway!): 1. Plug in the outlet close to your hub, 2. Press the outlet reset with a paperclip till you hear an click and the light flashes, 3. In the Smarthings app, and add a new device with the Scan option, 4. This is the important part: The app might say No device found at first, but I noticed that if I just let the app sit there a minute or so (don't close the app, but you can let your phone fall asleep), it eventually finds the outlet. Bulky design, but I was finally able to connect a lamp in an area of my home where smart WiFi plugs and Zigabee smart bulbs had failed in the past!5

Our take on plastic

Plastic is a key material for IKEA, and remains so going forward. It is strong, durable, lightweight and versatile. It is a main component in a large amount of our products and has a wide variety of applications from surface materials such as paint and foil, to screws and shelf pegs. There is a lot of valid concern regarding how plastic impacts the environment and at IKEA we take this very seriously. As part of our larger circular journey and transition from virgin fossil based material, we are working hard to change all plastic in our home furnishing products to plastic made from recycled and/or renewable raw materials.

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!”

Only recycled or renewable plastics

Plastic is most commonly derived from oil and gas, which are non-renewable fossil sources. These sources do not renew themselves and will eventually be depleted. Our ambition is that by 2030, all plastic used in our products will be based on renewable or recycled materials. Renewable plastic is made from materials such as vegetable oil, corn, wheat grain and sugar cane. Recycled plastic allows us to give a second life to non-biodegradable products such as PET bottles that would otherwise end up in landfill. Using recyclable sources also lessens our dependency on oil as a raw material. Currently more than 40% of our plastic products are based on recycled and renewable materials and our aim is to reach 100%. As we add products made from recycled and renewable materials to our offer, we hope to inspire other companies to do the same.

Phasing out single-use plastics

Single-use plastic items pollute ecosystems if not disposed of responsibly. As part of our commitment to people and the planet, all single-use plastic products from the global home furnishing range were phased out in 2020. This includes items such as plates, cups, and plastic straws offered in our restaurants, bistros, and cafes. These were replaced by disposables made from 100% renewable sources.

PET and PP our most commonly used plastics

Polythylene terephthalate (PET) and Polypropylene (PP) are durable, hygienic and shatter-resistant plastics. They absorb very little water and have good chemical resistance. Both PET and PP can be reused and recycled, which reduces waste and gives the product several lives through use and reuse. PET is the most recycled plastic in the world and can be used for many different purposes such as plastic bottles and containers for packaging food and beverages as well as for personal care products, pharmaceuticals and many other consumer products. At IKEA we mainly use recycled PET in boxes, filling material for textiles and kitchen front foil. PET is approved by health-agencies as safe to use for food and beverage. IKEA uses recycled PET that is post-consumer based, which means it is based on collected and sorted PET bottles.

Clean and safe

IKEA takes product safety very seriously and all products are tested and comply with the strictest possible laws and safety standards on all IKEA markets. Customers should always feel confident that products bought at IKEA are safe and healthy to use. IKEA wants to minimize or totally refrain from the use of chemicals and substances that can be harmful to people and the environment.

Together, we can do more

Our journey towards only using recycled or renewable plastic will take some time and require new ways of doing things, but we are determined to take responsibility and find new solutions. We want to give our customers the possibility to choose products made from more sustainable materials that can be recycled again one day. Together, we can make a big difference!
