Lightbulb  Addon Idea - Ikea Tradfri
Post: #1
Hi,

I have an idea of an addon, same as "Kodi Philips Hue" but for the Ikea Tradfri. A GitHub page say we can control Tradfri light using Python "https://github.com/ggravlingen/pytradfri"
I have absolutly no skill in Python, so i need help Wink

Thank, and also... Sorry I'm french so... Confused It should be hard to read Rofl

FYI; there are loads development discussion (and more links) on controlling Ikea Trådfri Gateway here:

https://github.com/bwssytems/ha-bridge/issues/570

Been thinking about buying a kit myself but have already invested to much in Philips Hue.

Jaime Jiménez have written a great teardown of Ikea Trådfri Gateway here:

http://jaimejim.github.io/tradfri/

He referenses another that good Python based framework written by Michael Koster (the main author of the data models and IPSO Objects that Ikea Trådfri uses):

https://github.com/connectIOT/iottoolkit/

If you want to know more about the wealth of data models out there you can check the IoTSI Workshop as a reference:

Thanks for all info but i'm not a developer and when I all the info it looks like I'm not ready to become one...

If some one can do it, I think it will be a great help for some people in the future.
