IKEA Zigbee amplifier



Just read that IKEA will be selling a zigbee amplifier :slightly_smiling_face:
I’m just wondering if its an amplifier or a router (or both)

In dutch :


How will it know which network it is on? Think you need to add it somewhere I guess.


From the instruction manual:
You cannot add IKEA Smart lighting
products directly to your signal repeater. A
TRÅDFRI steering device is needed to add


Homey is a tradfri steering device…, right?
So it might vbe possible to add it to the homey mesh and use it as an amplifier (like other powered devices)


Yes, it might be possible. Will test when I have one at hand.
