What is better: Connect IKEA Trådfri via Zigbee in Homey Bridge or Trådfri app?


Is it better to install IKEA Trådfri devices with Trådfri app or with Zigbee in Homey bridge? What is the difference between using one or the other?

Best regards, Niklas

Both options you mention are the same,

Homey Beta does not support the IKEA Trådfri Gateway App voor Homey | Homey you need a Pro fro that.

for IKEA Trådfri App voor Homey | Homey you need a Homey Bridge OR a Homey Pro.

So I can uninstall the IKEA app and just use Zigbee in Homey bridge without missing anything?

Ah, Now I understand.
the App provides sometimes more / better integration (Color / Dim) and all non-standard device specific functions. Always use a Device / Brand specific App when available.

Build-in Zigbee is just to support a basic set of options when a Device specific App is not available.
