A solution for using IKEA cheap light remote to control Vera scenes would be great. Would be cheaper than any z-wave switch or philips hue switch.

Now Ikea Tradfri smart light system support HomeKit and Alexa. It will be great to control it with Vera.

No progress here yet? An update of the Hue plugin to include these lights in Vera would be very appreciated!

you can try the Alternate Hue plugin ALTHue (take the version here https://github.com/amg0/ALTHue) and let me know how it goes in this other thread : http://forum.micasaverde.com/index.php/topic,77266.0.html

Does someone is working on a plugin to be able to communicate with the Tradfri Ikea Gateway with Vera?

I don't own a Phillips hue bridge, I have an Ikea Tradfri gateway that controls many lights. I'm able to control it with my amazon echo dot. But it would be nicer to control it with Vera.
Vera mentionned on Twitetr that they are working on it, but no news ?

Hi Kent,
Thanks for contacting Vera Customer Care.
At the moment we do not have a estimated date to integrate this device. You can visit our forum for more infomration

So this is a little bit worring in my opinion / Kent

Hi

I got this working, but with a Raspberry pi, acting as a Hue Hub (https://github.com/mariusmotea/diyHue) and the AltHue pligin

still hoping for a native plugin.
