    Default Ikea Trådfri

    Ikea has recentely released a new series of smart lighting products called Trådfri. The devices currently include light bulbs/panels, remote controls and a motion sensor, but more are promised to be available in the near future. The product line is Zigbee based but also include a cheap gateway product that will let you control everything from an app or other external devices.

    Any hope of getting support for this gateway into Girder? I see that other home automation products like Home-Assistant already have decoded the gateway protocol and implemented support for it.

    Looks like they reverse engineered the protocol yes. Ikea states that they will publish the API http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/customer-s...mart-lighting/

    How much interest is there in this?

    Can't speak for others, but I just bought a bunch of these lights. They're cheap and they work extremely well.

    As far as I understand the gateway speak COAP (http://coap.technology/), and the protocol seems fairly straighforward to implement:

    I also see that there is a python class available, which I guess I could use to hack something together in order to control my lights from Girder:
