All in all okay, but I have challenges with the gateway. It often takes a long time to connect to it or the connection drops. There seems to be no stable background activity. Also I wish the whole system would support Google Home and the moods could be set automatically. Also, when not in my home and connected to my WiFi i cant access the system, but if I connect to any WiFi I can.. Good start but some way to go.
NB If your gateway keeps disconnecting, like mine did. Its a hardware problem. So get a new one. It's a great start of a promisingly bright future. Hope they are gonna build up on this success. App itself is over simplified. At this point its just a nice bonus to the light's remote control.
We need more options. I'd like lights in two groups and also be able to set the colour temp and brightness for alarms/ update. I bought a few more bulbs and now the hub keeps disconnecting. Is this an issue?UPDATE/ Hub reset partially solved the problem although still drops sometimes.
Easy to configure, could setup in just few minutes. Would love to see more features added to the app like a Dashboard which can show how many devices are currently connected and how many are on and off. I know it is too early to expect these features but would love to have it, also it would be great if they build the feature of showing how much each connected device consumes the power and what is the overall power consumption on a daily basis.
Basic app I'm sure more functionality will come in time. I found that if the bulb doesn't connect to the gateway re-pair the controller to the gateway and bulb is there immediately. It also cured the update that was stuck on update pending.
When I first got it I liked it a lot and quickly expanded my setup. Now the gateway keeps disconnecting and I can not control anything. Tried resetting everything but it doesn't help. IKEA support tells me returns don't apply to digital products such as the gateway so they recommended me to buy another since I already have 7 bulbs and 5 remotes. NOT going to happen. Seriously disappointed.
