Add IKEA TRÅDFRI smart devices to your Loxone or KNX smart home

IKEA has launched their smart home product line as early as 2012 with a couple of smart bulbs and the LIVBOJ wireless charger. But their smart home devices didn’t become a household name until the summer of 2019, when they’ve updated their TRÅDFRI mobile app and added plenty of smart home devices such as the new FYRTUR blinds and SYMFONISK speakers.

And the best thing about this is that you can connect them to your Loxone, GIRA or any other KNX smart homes with the help of a smart assistant platform. Adding new devices to your wired smart home has never been easier and more affordable.

Before you can start adding IKEA devices, you need to connect your home with a smart assistant platform of your choice . It doesn’t take more than 5 minutes, that’s a promise.

What do I need?

IKEA is currently expanding their smart home line even further and collecting it under one name - the TRÅDFRI (Swedish for ‘wireless’).

“We started out our journey within the smart home with our smart lighting range TRÅDFRI where we also named the steering app with the same name. Now, moving into the next step we want to simplify for our customers and not create different steering systems. Instead we want to make it possible for you to steer all your smart products in the same app also making them work together seamlessly in the home.”
- Björn Block, Head of IKEA Home smart

TRÅDFRI lights are a great and cheaper alternative to Philips Hue lamps, and other products can easily compete with other high-end smart home products such as the Yeelight LED bulbs, Somfy blinds, Lutron Serena, and others.
