Or search on Hubitat Package Manager for IKEA and you should see "IKEA Symfonisk and Tradfri Drivers from BirdsLikeWires". I've started using this account to separate work and fun a little better.
There are other excellent drivers around for these devices, but as I rely on device presence detection a lot I always try to roll my own when I find the time.
First of all, battery reporting on this driver is a fudge. I can't make any sense out of what it's sending, and it seems neither can anybody else. Please send in your suggestions.
Now the good stuff; this driver reports the remote as a 3 button device; press, clockwise and anticlockwise. Single, double and triple tap is supported on the button using official methods for the first two, plus push (single), hold (double) and release (triple) to catch all three modes in a manner that can be used for automation.
Rotation start, progress and stop are reported as button 2 (clockwise) and button 3 (anticlockwise), again with push, hold and release reporting. Level change and cumulative / subtractive level in percentage is also supported.
I've also just added on/off switch support so the device can be used with the Mirror app.
Supports push, hold, release and battery monitoring, with the device reporting in hourly. This seems fine on the battery so far, but please let me know if it drains quickly; I've only had this driver working for 24 hours, but I see nothing horrendous compared to its OEM gateway behaviour.
UPDATE: I've been using the shortcut buttons for the past couple of days and they're absolutely brilliant. Not seeing any battery problems, they wake and transmit instantly, reporting in when they're supposed to and they cause no issues with other devices. Very impressed, IKEA!.
