Controlling Hue lights with Ikea Tradfri accessories

Hello everyone,

Before paying for the TouchLink option, I would like to know if Ikea Tradfri accessories could control Philips Hue lights (I have a Hue bridge) and does it work pretty well ?

Thank you for your answers and have a nice day.


Philips Hue lights can be controlled with the IKEA smart controls. See for more information: How to connect IKEA TRÅDFRI smart controls to a Philips Hue bridge?

Thank you !

I will try it right now.

So, it’s working but in a very strange way.

The Philips Hue bulbs are successfully paired with the Tradfri smart controls and can be managed by them perfectly.

But these bulbs are seen as not connected (or unreachable) by my apps (Hue Essentials, Philips Hue) and my assistants (Alexa, Siri), even though their names are seen.

Any clue why is it working this way ?

This probably means something went wrong with pairing. Please make sure when you are using touchlink that you hold the Trådfri smart control VERY close to the bridge. Also switch off other lights that should not be connected.
