All the devices are compatible with Apple HomeKit, Amazon Alexa, and Google Home ecosystems through the use of a Tradfri gateway.
Next, a new water resistant wireless remote suitable for use around the bathroom or even outside is apparently bundled with two new starter kits.
The $69 kit includes the remote, Tradfri Gateway (allowing all your Ikea smart devices to interoperate), two E12 bulbs, and one E26 sized.
A new E12 bulb with a small candelabra base suitable for ceiling fans and chandeliers has also made its first appearance.
It’s a move meant to better reflect Ikea’s range of smart devices that now includes Tradfri lighting, switches, and dimmers; Fyrtur blinds coming to the US on October 1st; and Symfonisk speakers , built in collaboration with Sonos and set to begin shipping next month.
With direct access to 780 million shoppers who visit its stores in 52 countries each year, Ikea will soon be in position to dominate the smart home with its low-priced and interoperable gear.
