IKEA smart home 725 x 500.jpg

IKEA is changing the name of its smart home management app from `TRÅDFRI' to `IKEA Home smart' at the end of this month.

Earlier this year, IKEA announced that customers would be able to operate all their IKEA smart products - including smart lighting, smart blinds and connected speakers - through the TRÅDFRI app.  Users are able to pre-set lighting moods, design their own light and set timers to turn lights on and off, and to group different product activities, for example, when lights go on, the blinds go up and music starts playing. 

The TRÅDFRI app will now change its name to IKEA Home smart app, catering for a unified eco-system and the possibility of continuing building on the range of connected products at IKEA.

“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”, says Björn Block, Head of IKEA Home smart.

The name change will happen wirelessly to all existing TRÅDFRI users.
