FCC documents have appeared on a remote control in Ikea’s Trådfri series of smart-home products. It is an accessory that seems to be able to operate remote blinds.
The FCC information was noted by the German iPhone ticker. It is a product with type name E1766 that is described as a remote control for opening and closing sun protection. In addition, an accessory with type designation E1743 is included in the assignment. This is an on and off switch. Both products fall into the Trådfri series, the name of Ikea’s smartphone product line.
Whether and if so when the products appear on the market is not known. It is clear that Ikea is busy expanding its Trådfri series. For example, in August it became known that the group is entering the market for smart power sockets . The series now mainly revolves around smart lighting, of which products have support for Apple HomeKit, Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.
