It’s easy with the IKEA Home smart 1 app and TRÅDFRI gateway. Use one setting for early morning lighting and music, another for late evenings and a third for cooking or working at home.

You can dim, turn off, turn on, change colours and switch from warm to cold light. Raise or lower blinds. Turn on your music – then turn it up, turn it down or pause it. And you can even control your air purifier to improve the air quality at home.

With the IKEA Home smart 1 app, you can also connect to Apple Home, Amazon Alexa or Google Home and control it all with your voice.

What you’ll get with the IKEA Home smart 1 app and TRÅDFRI gateway:
• The ability to control your lights and blinds from the app
• The ability to turn audio on and off, pause it and control volume
• Customisable settings, including changing the position of blinds, light colours and choosing warm or cold light
• Timers with morning and evening options
• The ability to turn your air purifier on and off, and set it to a fan speed that suits the needs of your home

A bit of a pain to setup, but works great after that

It takes a while to setup and get everything to pair correctly (3-4 tries per item), but once everything is connected, it works well. Would like to see it add HomeKit compatibility, but that's not a deal-breaker for me. The setup does require a different controller for each set of lights you connect if you want to control them separately (one for living room, one for bedroom, etc).

A previous reviewer mentioned that they couldn't pair their lights The to the gateway. I ran into this problem at first, but figured out that you have to connect the remote to the gateway first, before you can connect the lights. The setup wizard skipped that when I first tried to set it up but the Help section sent me in the right direction. I also had to reset the gateway before I could get the remote to successfully pair. Just keep trying. Hope this helps!

Easy and Cheap

If you are looking for a way to do smart lights on the cheap, the IKEA solution is pretty amazing. It took me a little bit to figure out how to set it all up, but compared to actual IKEA furniture it was pretty much a breeze!

The IKEA Smart Home app and lineup of products does pretty much all the stuff you’d expect, although I’d like to see a few things added:

(1) I would love a sleep timer that will gradually dim or just shut off the lights after you activate it. Currently, you can only set up the app to turn the lights on/off at fixed times.

(2) More full RBG bulbs! IKEA smart bulbs come in two types: adjustable white tones (think warm vs blue light) and fully adjustable color bulbs. The distinction isn’t always clear on the website or products. I would love some full color adjustable bulbs for some of the smaller sizes such as the GU10. I would also love a color adjustable LED smart strip!!!

(3) Customizable UI for App: the IKEA App is very clean, but I would like if you could custom size aspects like the limit on the number of scenes you can put on your main dashboard.

(4) iOS widget: would love to be able to control my lights right off the Home Screen vs. going into the app.

Any or some of these improvements would elevate this to a 5 star product for me. If you’re on the fence about this product, I highly recommend you go for it!

Lose settings, A lot of opportunites

Still not a reliable system
Gateway will NOT connect. Makes the whole system useless. Need a Fix!!!!! Major concept flaw is that timer toggle between on/off.... and that the light settings is lost from time to time, unknown when/what trigger the setting to reset. Some pain to set it up.... very limited information what it does or does not do .... The app can adjust the brightness and temperature of the lights. You can set some timers and you can use the app to turn on or off any bulbs. Neither can set like a sleep timer (tap on the small bulb icon} Feels overall very basic and dated A major flaw is the toggle switch on the remote... while you set timer on individual bulb the remote will turn on the other bulbs and turn off the bulb that was on by timer. It should be that the toggle should be able to get all bulb to the same state aka all on or all off ( now you have unpower the bulbs to get them in sync) We need version 3 now A m
