  1. so compatibility between manufacturers isn't guaranteed and you'll be unable to update products of competitors.
    I'll see if I can stick with Philips products instead, that's a -1 for the ZigBee protocol

  2. @SmarterHomeLife 11:36 , has #Homekit integration changed?

    I bought a Hue starter kit, (4 bulbs), and use it with HomeKit.
    I would like to reduce costs by:

    Adding IKEA's TRÅDFRI smart bulbs to Philips HUE, but I need it to be integrated with HomeKit. (Example: living room lights will be a mix of HUE/TRÅDFRI bulbs)
    "Hey, siri, turn on Living Room lights".

  3. I need a bit of help. I've got a tradfri setup with the remote control, gateway and 8 dimmable (warm and bright whites) bulbs.

    I now bought amazon echo plus (coming with its own hue hub)…How do I pair everything so that I can control everything from alexa ? I'm unable to find the devices through the standard alexa functionality.

  4. Hello, I would like to ask you if it is possible to change color temperature on IKEA tradfri using Philips Bridge to different then 3 predefined colours? I have white spectrum GU10 bulbs, however I dont like 2700K a 4000K is too white. I would like to set temperature similar to 3000K, however it's not possible via Tradfri app or Tradfri remote. So using Philips bridge and application I can set different temperature and then use Tradfri remote to switch it on and off with last used color? Thank you very much.

  5. Hi, Great video! 👍 Thinking of buying this… if I buy lightbulbs do I need the ikea gateway, the hue bridge, both or will either work? Thanks,

  6. Thanks for video. Have a new ikea bulb (clear one as you mentioned in video). I pass whole procces, bulb is blinkig 15 seconds and flash at the end, but finaly not added at hue app. I repeated process severel time, pair, unpair, but every time same… any idea what is a problem?

  7. Many thanks, exactly what I needed to know, although the colour comparison would've been better served in another video for those of us coming just to find out how to get a Trådfri bulb to pair with a Hue Bridge.

    It was monumentally inconvenient though, I was doing it for the GU10s in my kitchen, which is the only place in the whole house you can connect a GU10 to power, so I had to haul a powerline networking unit into the kitchen along with the Hue Bridge, find a longer ethernet cable and hold the bridge up in the air for a while to get it to pair with each of the four GU10s in turn. The first one refused to do it, so I tried the next and it worked straight away. Thought maybe I had mixed firmware versions. Tried the other two and they worked as well, so I went back to the first one… and that worked too!

    So IKEA are definitely selling some white dimmable GU10 Trådfri lights in the UK with sufficiently recent firmware on. I bought these today.

  8. Would love to support your show. But how? Patreon is creditcard only and i dont have that. I only have iDeal. Patreon is not “every-people-that-want-to-support-the-show friendly”.

  9. The "Ambiance White" version of the Tradfri is said to only have 3 steps in color temperature with the original Tradfri bridge and app. Is that also the case for the Hue Bridge or does it "unlock" more colors (so it'd be just a limitation of the Ikea smartphone app, not the bulb software)? Thanks!
