IKEA is planning a new gateway for smart homes

Since IKEA introduced its smart home products, it has undoubtedly grown into some of the most popular on the market, partly due to relatively low prices compared to many of their competitors. It is now rumored that the furniture giant has a new gateway on the way, which will replace the slightly older Wireless model. Information via German Iphone-ticker indicates that the new model will be called Dirigera and it will have a number of new features.

Although it is currently unknown what is inside the Dirigera, the site has obtained images of the new gateway unit, which make it clear that it is a completely new product. IKEA has developed a more discreet design, which looks to be much thinner, although Dirigera may be slightly larger in circumference than Wireless. The power supply appears to take place via USB Type-C and based on the pictures it will be possible to mount Dirigera on the wall using a screw.

There is a status light on the top and the German manual indicates that there is a rechargeable battery inside Dirigera. It is possible that IKEA imitates what Samsung has done with its latest gateway for Smartthings, where the company has plugged in a backup battery in addition to external power supply. Routing is said to support Zigbee 3.0, but is expected to be updated with support for Matter at a later date, as the standard is slightly delayed. IKEA is already one of the companies behind the development of Matter.

IKEA in the US has also managed to leak one picture of Directing, which can be seen above. IKEA has caught on to the trend of having a small piece of cloth with the company logo on it, attached somewhere on the product, which can be seen in one of the pictures from the iPhone ticker. Otherwise, we will have to wait until IKEA releases Dirigera to find out more details.
