Ikea is expanding its smart home offerings with the introduction of three budget-friendly Zigbee sensors: Parasoll (door and window sensor), Vallhorn (motion sensor), and Badring (water leakage sensor).

Parasoll can be discreetly installed to trigger automation based on open/close events, Vallhorn serves as a universal motion sensor for both indoor and outdoor use, and Badring, equipped with a built-in siren, warns of water leaks. The sensors integrate seamlessly with Ikea's smart home products and can be directly paired with Ikea light bulbs without requiring an additional smart hub.

The Parasoll and Badring sensors, however, are not compatible with older Trådfri Home smart gateways from Ikea but support the newer Dirigera hub. This hub facilitates integration with Ikea's smart home ecosystem and compatibility with major platforms like Google, Amazon, and Apple.

While Ikea initially planned to support the Matter standard, enabling communication across various smart home devices, this feature's rollout has been delayed.

Although the release schedule will vary, with Vallhorn coming in January 2024 (in some countries), Parasoll in April and Badring in July, Ikea is committed to offering affordable and convenient solutions for a wide range of smart home challenges.
