The range includes a variety of dimming, sensing, and remote-controlled light fixtures, as well as a hub device called a ‘Gateway’ that allows for connectivity with your home’s network. Although the other options are semi-smart, the Gateway itself can control your lighting via a dedicated app and will soon support connectivity with other major home assistant devices like thermostats, door locks, ceiling fans and more.
Based on the response from the range’s announcement, the real boon of the Ikea devices has been their simplicity of use and installation, and relatively cheap price, considering competitors like the Philips HUE charge roughly double for comparable products.
