    I don't think IKEA needs introducing, but my plugin is for controlling IKEA smart home devices via HomeSeer

    Configuration
    After installing the plugin you need to configure the Gateway -

    1. After a few seconds the plugin should discover the Tradfri Gateway (using mDNS/Zeroconf) and create root HS device.

    Note: if mDNS/Zeroconf Discovery doesn't work for some reason - you can add new device manually

    2. Enter Ikea Gateway Key (found on the bottom of Gateway).

    3. Plugin should generate "App Name" and request "App Key" automatically.

    4. That's it. AK IKEA plugin will discover the devices and create HS devices.

      Note on Update rate settings:

      1. Update rate for the Bridge (Gateway):

      Controls scan time for new devices / groups / moods (scenes)
      If you don't plan adding new devices - it can be disabled (set to 0)

      2. Update rate for the Groups:

      Similar to the Bridge - scanning for new devices and moods (scenes) in the group

      3. Update rate for the Lights:

      The light devices support Observation (immediate notifications), but just in case I also scan them for changes.
      Can be disabled also (set to 0).

        Created ROOT devices:

        1. The Gateway (Bridge)
        2. Lights
        3. LED Drivers
        4. Groups
        5. Remote Controls





        For each RGB Light:

        1. Brightness slider, On/Off
        2. Color devices: Hue/Sat/X/Y
        3. Predefined (named) Tradfri colors
        4. Custom RGB color - note that Tradfri protocol doesn't support RGB setting, so the plugin converts the custom color to Color XY - which may produce slight variation in colors
        5. Transition time (ramp rate) - separate for the Brightness and the Color changes





        For White spectrum lights:

        There's no Color controls,

        1. only color temperature (if supported) - WarmGlow, WarmWhite, CoolWhite and
        2. related color temperature (in Mireds) - i.e. CoolWhite = 250M, WarmGlow = 454M





        For each Group:

        1. Similar devices to each group member
        2. Mood (Scene) i.e. Everyday, Relax, Focus (scenes are created in Ikea Home app)





        For Tradfri remote:

        1. Battery level

          Ver. 3.0.0.49 (and 4.0.0.4) - in BETA until approved by HST - fixes issues (crashes) introduced by IKEA firmware update.
