How to Connect IKEA DIRIGERA Hub to eWeLink?
IKEA opened testing for its Matter bridge in March, which brings TRADFRI and other IKEA smart lights to Matter-enabled platforms, including eWeLink. This guide will walk you through the process of pairing your IKEA lights with the eWeLink ecosystem via Matter.
⚠️ Prerequisites: Before you begin, ensure that you have the following:
IKEA DIRIGERA (latest firmware)
IKEA Home Smart App (latest)
eWeLink app (V5.4 or above)
NSPanel Pro (firmware V3 or above)

Getting Started

If you are new to IKEA smart home, please refer to the official guide for the initial setup. The IKEA Home Smart (for DIRIGERA) app will also guide you through this process.
After a successful setup, your DIRIGERA should have the ring light on steadily. Please consult this official guide to upgrade your gateway.
⚠️ Important: Ensure that your DIRIGERA has been upgraded and that your phone, DIRIGERA, and NSPanel Pro are all connected to the same local network.

10. Paste the pairing code obtained from the IKEA app into the input field and tap “Next.”

11. The eWeLink app will check the status of your network and Matter Hub. Once everything is verified, the bridge will be added to your eWeLink ecosystem.

Congratulations! Your IKEA lights are now ready to be controlled within the eWeLink platform.
