IKEA tradfri outlet

Bought one in Finland. Just like was reported earlier, works fine after manually changing to a Zigbee Switch Power.

Can also confirm works as a repeater, which is the reason I bought this. Devices that were earlier not connecting at the farther ends of my house connected immediately after the outlet went online near them.

Does it show power consumption (watt)?

No, it does not - at least not with the builtin device handler. There is no mention of such functionality in the included minimal documentation either.

Damn. There goes my key use case. Wanted to use these for power reporting on my washer and dryer so that I can have alerts that say the load is finished. :frowning:
Anyone tried using the built in 'Smartpower Outlet" device type? That’s what I’m using for the smartthings outlet, and that does report power usage (assuming that the metric is available)

Hey Davor,

Can you tell me how you added the Ikea Tradfri outlet to the samsung hub (V2)?
I have one (last item in Groningen!!!) but iḿ struggling to get it to work.

best regards, Kees

Can anyone (Jamu / Davor) tell me how i can add the outlet to ST?

Pse?

best regards, Kees

you need to reset the outlet first. Press the reset button for 10 seconds.
Then search for new things. After that you change it to zigbee switch power.
Works great.

Hi Oset,
Thnx for the reply. May be a stupid question: how do i reset the outlet???

You need to use a needle and press in to the small hole for 10 seconds. on the top or bottom of the outlet depending how you see it.

Thnx! Just added the Ikea outlet!!! now i have to rename it to a zigbee outlet

Everything works!!! Thanks !!!

Has anyone tried the bundled on/off button that is sold in the kit: https://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/70364803/

Can the button be used by it self to control other TRÅDFRI devices? Is it recognized in ST as a switch?

Newby question from my side, how to change it to a Zigbee Switch Power? Just rename it or is there another option?

I connected the button but it’s not recognised. I tried changing it to Zigbee Button etc. in the IDE but couldn’t get it to do anything. Hope a device handler shows up at some stage, the buttons are quite handy. :slight_smile:

Hi @dmcn

Here a lookalike of the Ikea button?

Xiaomi Aqara Button AQ2

There is a DTH for.

Maybe it’s an option for you.

I actually already have Aqara buttons running but they only have one button, the Ikea button has two. I think it needs it’s own device handler, sadly.

When you add the Xiaomi Aqara switch, you can define to switch on/off with the single button.

I think what @dmcn means is, that with a DH for this device you would have a nice looking 2-button wireless button… :wink:

That would be the best way.

Didn’t thought about that, how stupid. :eyes:

I’ve spent three hours trying to pair the new Tradfri outlet to Smartthings and use the remote to control it at the same time but to no avail.
I can pair the outlet to ST and control it, I can pair the outlet to the small two button remote it came with but I can’t do both at the same time.
Has anyone managed to do this?
