Ikea products in the smart home area are lagging again and again, this also applies to the furniture giant’s smart plug.
Ikea Germany has a problem. The market launch of the new Tradfri hardware has been drastically postponed for years. And who would have thought that, even the cheap smart plug is delayed again. According to Ikea, a plug with the Zigbee standard available for only € 9.99 should cause such problems with certification in Germany that the offer in this country could even be delayed by a whole year.
