A new smart home product from Ikea has been leaked called the Ikea Shortcut Button. This should represent a smart button that offers support for different scenes. This way you can press the button in different ways and achieve different results.
This is the Ikea Shortcut Button
A new smart home product from Ikea has been found at the FCC , the American communications watchdog . The Ikea Shortcut Button is a smart button with support for multiple scenes. Scenes in fact indicate several moments of a day, such as leaving, coming home or relaxing. Several devices can be operated with a single press of such a button. Take a look at our review of the Logitech Pop for examples. In fact, with enough support, anything is possible.
The Ikea Shortcut Button, also called Tradfri Shortcut Button, was first discovered by David Zatz . The picture shows an image of a bed. The Swedish website Teknikveckan thinks it is possible to display icons for the different scenes, so it should be clear what you are activating. When you press the smart button, a signal is sent to the Ikea Home Smart application, as described in the user manual .
The smart button must also last for about two years on a single button cell battery and you need an Ikea Tradfri gateway to operate devices in the house. It is striking, however, that the Ikea Home Smart application currently does not support scenes, only timers. So it could be that the leak of the Ikea Shortcut Button has just revealed the upcoming feature. At the time of writing it is not yet clear what the accessory will cost, but judging by Ikea’s reputation, this will be less than the competition.
