    Cheaper and almost as good as Hue


    No colour

    Value for money makes it a great alternative to Hue if you don't are about colour lights. But maybe that's coming next?

    Magnus Jern has used this product for one week.

Nice. Is it Alexa compatible? Would be an awesome feature to have.

@thenateh Alexa and/or Siri/HomeKit compatibility would be nice :) any information on that?

So cheap compared to LIFX and Hue! Definitely considering Trådfri.

@mikaelf Agreed. If it beats the price point of Hue, I'm in. I really love the idea of smart lighting but paying the cost of Hue was like a sucker punch.

Great they finally launched this, Ikea has strict quality control so would be tempted to use this as my main gateway hub. The pricing is a bit odd, wouldn't it make sense to sell the gateway separately with a loss and get the margin from the lamps (gateway 20$, each lamp 22-24$ instead of the current 19$. When the system works a family home takes easily 10 lamps and barrier to second gateway (leisure home/christmas gift) much lower than the current 80$ starter package.
