Just got a tradfri bulb working with the zipabox with zigbee module. The trick is to get the bulb into inclusion mode : swith it on and off (toggle) 6 or 7 times, fast. So toggle without waiting between toggles. The bulb itself will respond with a very short flicker, that is the indication that the bulb is in inclusion mode. And indeed will be found by the zipabox. (Add new zigbee device, toggle 6 or 7 times fast, bulb flicklers, zipato responds with device found).

And now it's out to buy: IKEA TRÅDFRI: http://www.ikea.com/se/sv/catalog/products/10318263/


Will it work in Zipato controllers with Zigbee support? (Like the Zipatile)


Please let us know!

As far as I know, TRÅDFRI uses Zigbee Lignt Link.


I don't think it is supported by the Zipabox Zigbee module, at least. Osram Lightify works without a bridge (Zigbee HA 1.2 protocol), but Phillips Hue does not (Zigbee Light Link protocol).


I think...

any update ? or do it support like Hue that you can link Ikea Bridge to Zipabox/Zipatile ?

I've seen an article where someone got it to work with Vera Plus, what I've heard from customers om mine the light is pleasing as well.

with the price tags of ikea, it will be interesting to have it working with the zipato ecosystem

Yeahthey got it partly to work with vera (not to change the colour) and not via the Ikea hub, just to end point right away.

Alsoseen people modifying the remote for the bulbs via Arduino, but that is ofcourse a more hardware hack

Hi I am trying to get the Tradfri remote to control an arduino for a project but havent found any information on exactly how to achieve this.

I am assuming i can connect a bluetooth module to the arduino for recieving the code from the remote, any information would be great.


Many thanks

@Andy, that won't work: The Ikea "Trådfri" system doesn't use Bluetooth (radio frequency + protocol). Rather, they use Zigbee, which is another protocol/system entirely.

You may want to read the following article, before you google "arduino zigbee";

I just picked up a "Trådfri" 980lm Zigbee bulb from Ikea (with variable light temperature).

It sort of *WORKS* with Zipatile (Zigbee device inclusion, no hub): It's possible to control on/off, and both the temperature and intensity control show, but for now, I've only been able to control on/off from the panel. I guess the other properties can be controlled via rules.

Update:

The Ikea Zigbee bulbs *DO* work, but the end points need to be named / configured manually via the WebUI Control Center to make them work.

I just installed some 15 LED bulb GU10 400 Spotlights and a couple of E27 TRÅDFRI LED Bulbs in my home and at least the Bulbs showed up directly in the Zipato (I also bought the ZigBee module the other day just for this) and I can change colour and turn them on and off and the show up in the rule-creator (although at this moment they all have the same name there...). I have not bought or used the IKEA Gateway, so I wonder if the lamps can be used/Paired with both the Zipato ZigBee and another controller such as the IKEA Dimmers and/or the IKEA Gateway?

JonH, I have a problem to include the light. I turn on and off 6 times the lamp blink 1 time very fast and nothing happen.

what am I doing wrong?

Jonas Westergård I have same problem with one of mine E14, 2pc worked fine.

Unpairing / reseting the bulb only works for me if I add it to my IKEA gateway, and then removes the bulb from there.

That might solve your issues.

I use two types of E27 and one E14.

Hi,

I 've just bought the zigbee module and with 3 Ikea bulbs I get nothing first.

Zigbee just find the ikea remote dimmer but I can't use it with zipato.

I get the latest fw and swith on/off 6 times and it worked ! (only the E27 the e14 is unknow.

I you add (link) the ikea remote dimmer to a bulb you loose the zipato control.

So ikea "trådfri" remote is working with the zigbee modul?

photo

Hi, yes but not completely supported. You can't use it in the rules. But I'am sure zipato will do it 100%.

All my lamps is added now and work if I manually turn them on and off. But when the lamps are included in a rule some lamps do not turn off and some when turned on will not go to set light levels. Anyone with same problems.


When you have turned the light on and off 6 times you have to wait like 5-10sec then my system find the lights.

Yes, i couldn't get the zigbee to be stable and usable on my zipabox. Most devices turned red over time. Try the IKEA gateway and see if you have the same issue there, if not, i guess problem is in zipatos end? I'm moving on...
