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)

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
them.

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)


#5

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