Ikea has recently announced the launch of its newest hub - the Dirigera, which supports the new Matter standard.
Dirigera, which is set to be released in October, is compatible with products equipped with the universal home automation tech, which has also been adopted by Samsung, Google, Amazon and Apple. The newest hub will also be involved in the development of Matter, as confirmed by Ikea.
This means that consumers with Dirigera hub can expect a wide range of support for future smart home products regardless of where they buy them. Ikea says it will “lower the threshold for people looking into setting up a smart home” and make connecting devices much easier.
“With Dirigera and the new app, one of our focuses has been on strengthening and simplifying the onboarding process when connecting new smart products to the smart home. We have also added personalisation options, such as creating different scenes with pre-set functions of the smart products for all your different activities and moments in the home”, says Rebecca Töreman, Business Leader at IKEA of Sweden.
