« on: October 20, 2016, 09:37:38 am »

It is ZigBee (not Z-wave, how sad isn't that?)

Ikea are definitely rolling this out widely - now front page on their Swiss site.

@MCV - this would be a good opportunity to show your responsiveness, and add some really significant use to the ZigBee part of Vera Plus...

Please make the Vera work with IKEA lights. This may be a game changer for home automation - at least for lights. IKEA will sell this at very competitive prices. If I was a controller vendor, then I would ensure to be compliant with these. It will be interesting to see what this will means for z-wave.
I was just going to buy an Vera Plus, but will wait and see which controllers will work with these IKEA lights.

From what I have read, the Wink/Wink2 hubs connect well with ZigBee devices and bridge to Vera very well. I have not heard that Vera works well directly with ZigBee devices.

It is possible, but very unstable.

Thank you for the link.  The the real issue is in the comments:

Vera Supporten:
 Please know that Ikea lights are on the ZigBee Light Link protocol while Vera is on the ZigBee Home Automation protocol. The different protocols are not inter-compatible. ....


Dam ... I would really want those 15-20 eur zigbee lights connected to my vera.
