Wireless lamp - smart home system from IKEA company

The world famous IKEA company is actively engaged inposition in the wireless technology market; and the development of smart home systems. The presented automated lighting system is one of the first steps of the brand. Another novelty was presented a little earlier - it was a line of wireless chargers for smartphones, already available in Russia. Now from these fully charged phones it will be possible to control the light in the house. The novelty was named Tradfri, which is translated from Swedish as ‘wireless’. A smart light bulb, controlled from a tablet or smartphone, has already gone on sale in some European countries. From the beginning of April, the geography will be significantly expanded, and in Russia the device will appear by the end of 2017. So far, the price of the new product is about $ 85 (about five thousand rubles). But the service life is 25 thousand hours! The bulbs and lighting systems work according to the ZigBee standard, and the central control is enclosed in a hub controller that connects to the Ethernet network. If you wish, you can diversify your system with a lighting level control, which also does not need wires and is a device that looks like a washer. If you turn this dimmer, then the brightness of the lamps will change. A smartphone app will allow you to remotely control the lighting.
