[OBSOLETE] IKEA Styrbar 4 button remote

that’s right, it has the same behavior as me. Is the battery at zero?

No, I’m at 50%. Rechargeable batteries run at lower voltages, and that is basically how devices report the battery level, just based on voltages. Maybe that’s the case for you ?

Do you have any IKEA Outlets around that the button could be routing through? They have been known to eat battery configuration commands. Power cycling the outlet and pairing the button again can help.

I have similar “problem” with older Trådfri buttons. I’m just waiting for Edge drivers to take over and solve these problems.

In my case I’m using Ikea batteries but not rechargeable

I tried to look for the old Ikea button (the one with five keys) but apparently it is no longer in production, they don’t sell it online and in the store closest to where I live it is no longer for sale

I see it is listed in the UK but not available online and only in stock in two stores (one low stock). The Tradfri on/off switch/dimmer and the Tradfri motion sensor aren’t being listed at all.

As far as I know the Ikea Tradfri button is recognized natively by ST but consumes a lot of battery, this new Styrbar should consume much less batteries … We hope you can solve the problem of the DH because it is a really good solution

I’ve had a go at writing an edge driver for Styrbar remote here Ikea Styrbar Remote

Hi, i’m new here.
how do i install this file on the hub?

Trial and error method :grinning:
Very Nice happy with it

I have just bought the STYRBAR silver 4 button and managed to add using @scubaandre DH- thank you! Very straightforward and displayed as an IKEA device.

I have read the thread and see that it’s simply a 4 button button, unless you add in some fancy way as suggested by @milandjurovic71 . Is that the case, or has anyone used for any other routines/scene settings /else? Thanks in advance.

You can definitely do routines/scenes including color changes/dimming bound to a single value in a scene, out of the box with the new smart things app. But you can’t do granular dimming, colour changes with the DH.

Also keep in mind this is a 4 buttons single presses, 3 buttons long presses due to a design decision by IKEA.

With zigbee lights, supported by @Mariano_Colmenarejo driver, you can dim by percentage with each button press.
Just one sample, wit press level increases by 10%, and with hold Light Temperature increases by 150K

This steps are settable by user

@Mariano_Colmenarejo could you please add the group feature to your driver , so we can use Zigbee group broadcast?

I have the source code of my remote driver if you need a reference

Hi @veonua,
I don’t know how that function works.
I can look at your code to see what it is or you can use my driver code that is in github, add it and test it without any problem

Thank you! I’ll give this a go.

I read that adding handlers was disabled, is there an Edge driver for this dimmer?
