[RELEASE] IKEA Zigbee drivers

Tell me, what do you need?

Sounds good. Will a more correct driver allow me to control these devices using Zigbee groups, like the LED Driver? Or do I need to make automation rules to use the remotes for multiple lights?

If you're talking about the Alfa, Bravo... Zulu groups that the IKEA drivers manage, sure -- the new drivers include this functionality as well.


I’m getting

Firmware update for [name:Bucatarie, manufacturer:IKEA of Sweden, imageFileName:null, fileVersion:null] failed, check if the device supports over the air firmware updates.

when I try to update it.

Here’s the data cell content:

Looks like you need to keep trying. The instructions and user comments from the other thread might help.

When you select the "Update Firmware" option, Hubitat communicates with the target device, prompting it to check for firmware updates. This interaction can lead to one of three scenarios:

  1. The device successfully receives the prompt, queries Hubitat for updates, but none are available. In this instance, the following message will appear in the logs: "Firmware update for … is not available". No further action is required as the device is already up-to-date.

  2. The device receives the prompt, queries Hubitat, and updates are available. The download process then commences. You’ll see this message in the logs: "Starting firmware update for …". It’s important to wait patiently until the update completes, which can take approximately 100 minutes for battery-powered devices.

  3. The device fails to receive the prompt, likely due to being in sleep mode. This seems to be your current situation. Hubitat waits for a response from the device, and if none is received, the following message will appear in the logs: "Firmware update for … failed, check if the device supports over the air firmware updates". To resolve this, ensure the device is awake (by pressing a button) when you click the "Update Firmware" option and confirm the action by clicking "OK" in the popup.

Hope this helps!

My Sound Remotes work fine. What if I upgrade when a newer version comes out, will I need to re-pair then or is it just when going to 4.1.1?

Edit: I'm actually on 4.1.2 so the above will be a no!

It was an old battery.
I replaced it, update took about 40 minutes, but it eventually worked.
Thank you.

Hi folks, off topic but I'm not sure where to post this. My Parasoll arrived today. I've dremmeled a little bit out of my sliding doors and hey presto. A concealed door sensor. I've reversed the sensor so that I can change the battery without removing the device from the door frame. Rudimentary but I'm extremely happy with this :sunglasses:


Great idea. There's a special place just for stuff like this!

So. Firmware upgrading 8 of the IKEA Tradfri Remote Control (E1810) and 2 of the IKEA Styrbar Remote Control N2 (E2002) taught me the following:

E1810 Takes 10% every 10 minutes. That’s 100 minutes. So a full firmware update takes 1 hour and 40 minutes.

E2002 Is faster. This ine takes 10% every 6 minutes.
Full firmware takes 1 hour :blush:
