At £25 IKEA’s Tradfri gateway is the cheapest Zigbee smart home hub that you can buy and as a complete alternative to Philips Hue it could pose a major threat. The products are compatible with Alexa, Google Home, Philips Hue, Samsung Smartthings and it is even compatible with Apple Home Kit! So why on earth is IKEA’s new Smart home hub one of the cheapest home automation products that money can buy?
In this review I’ll explain the Tradfri gateway setup process, how the IKEA Tradfri and Alexa relationship works, the problems with Tradfri gateway setup and the relationship with Philips Hue and Smartthings when it comes to IKEA lighting and zigbee switches.
With IKEA Fyrtur (IKEA’s upcoming Tradfri blinds) set to cost less than £100 we could be about to see IKEA’s Tradfri products take over the Smart Home market, but the question remains… is it any good?
