Ikea smart bulbs to get Google Assistant, Alexa, and HomeKit integration

Ikea smart LED bulb Assistant

Ikea’s line of Trådfri smart LED light bulbs for the home are already compatible with an Android app for controlling them wirelessly. Now Ikea has announced that the lineup will soon be getting support for all of our favorite virtual assistants.

Coming late this summer, the bulbs will support Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, and Apple HomeKit. This means you’ll be able to use your phone handsfree and even your Google Home to control your lights. They support dimming as well, and have wall-mounted controllers you can buy.

While the Philips Hue bulbs are more advanced, they also cost a small fortune. Ikea’s bulbs are relatively cheap at $12-18, so you can outfit your entire home without breaking the bank. Are you going to pick some up now that they’re getting Assistant support? Leave a comment!
