How to add Trådfri lights to Animus Heart

To use the IKEA Trådfri smart lights with your Animus Heart you need to have the Philips Hue Bridge. The same Bridge that you use for the Hue lights can be used for IKEA Trådfri.

  1. Open the Animus Home app
  2. Click on the add device button
  3. Choose “IKEA Lights” to start the correct guide
  4. Follow the simple steps in the guide to add your lights

The IKEA lights are controlled uniquely in the Animus Home user interface/app. Change colors, dim them, change names and put them uniquely in the right rooms.



It works great to control your IKEA lights from their own app, but they are better enjoyed if they can co-work with your other smart devices. Automate with sensors, change the moods in you rooms, let them react on emergencies and much more!

There is no need to have another IKEA gateway and you can enjoy the advantages of combining your cheaper IKEA bulbs and the more expensive Hue lights.




Continue to follow our blog and social media to gain new wisdom in the smart home. But also to receive new inspiration on how your smart home can become even better with the Animus Heart.
