Ikea's Tradfri smart bulbs are bright, efficient and very good at dimming. They don't cost very much either, especially if you skip the gateway hub and go with the budget-priced bundles that include a bulb and a remote accessory, instead. Ikea's $80 gateway kit is too basic to recommend, but there's some sneaky value in Tradfri's other, cheaper bundles.
Smart-lighting aficionados will want to look elsewhere, but for everyone else, the Ikea Trådfri is a cheap and easy way to make your home lighting that little bit smarter.
Smart Home Geeks:
The thing to remember with these is this is mass market smart lighting. For the price point they work well, setup could be streamlined and the app does have a few glitches but it works.
We’re excited to see what the future brings for IKEA Smart Lighting as this is an impressive start and for the price it’s hard to argue!
- Easy to get started with a TRÅDFRI smart kit which contains gateway, remote control and 2 E26 LED light bulbs (large base) with white spectrum.
