IKEA Tradfri GU10 timeout - unresponsive


I have paired the turnable GU10 lights by IKEA but after sometime I can’t do anything with them, they become unresponsive and I get error: "Something went wrong addressing device IKEA light (Timed out after 5000ms). I paired two times already, reinstalled IKEA App and even tried Beta. No help. After some time lights become unresponsive. What can I do??? Ps. its good wifi coverage and Homey is not far. THANKS!


There was issue with ZigBee network in latest update and after couple of restartings of Homey it seems to be working now…


Had the same isue here. But have hue lights and ikea lights in the same zigbee network. Now I have changed that. Ikea gu10 on the hue bridge and hue light direct on homey. Till now (almost 2weeks) no problems, before i had to reboot once a week because the time out errors.


I have the same problem, problem keeps returning… also after reboot…


Luckly I had Philips Hue Hub and I have added Ikea lights to that hub and it works great! After that just add Hub lights to Homey. I had to restart Homey every day for Ikea to work but this is best solution!


It was working fine but after the latest release (1.5.12) the bug showed up.


Same here. It was working perfect, but now the Ikea lights are unreliable :disappointed:


Still having the same problems, even after the latest update from the Ikea app and Homey.

Is there an update on this issue?


Update from Athom Support:
We have analyzed the problem over the past couple of months and it seems like this issue is being caused by a “bug” in the Zigbee part of Homey (the protocol that is being used by the Ikea lights).

To solve this “bug” the development team needs to “rewrite” this part in Homey, which needs a lot of development. Our first focus right now is to release version 2.0 of the Homey firmware and the new mobile app.
Once these are completed the development team will start working on resolving this “bug” as soon as possible.

I can understand that it is a bit frustrated that this issue is still occurring, but we promise that it is very high on our priority list to resolve this as soon as possible.

Best Regards,

IKEA Tradfri error every morning

Hey guys! Any timeline set for correcting this bug?


there is no, and never will be, timeline for anything with homey.
We have not heard anything about the zigbee stack (started) being rewritten unfortunately, you’ll have to contact Athom support for more direct information, as they don’t read/respond on this community forum


Asked the same question, and received the following answer yesterday:




@Caseda and @Munnikie,

brilliant, thanks for that! Here’s waiting. Until then, I might think of making a script that auto restarts HOMEY each night at 3am… that brings the network back to life for 24-48 hours usually.
