IKEA Doubles Down On Its Smart Home Development

Over the years, we’ve seen IKEA introduce a variety of smart home products to its lineup. This started out with lamps that came with built-in wireless chargers, to IKEA’s own range of smart lightbulbssmart blinds, and smart speakers. However, it seems that the company is actually far from done with its smart home products.Advertising

In fact, in a recent announcement made by the company, they have revealed that they will be creating a new business unit dubbed IKEA Home Smart that will focus on the development of smart home products. According to Björn Block, Head of the new IKEA Home smart Business Unit at IKEA of Sweden, “At IKEA we want to continue to offer products for a better life at home for the many people going forward. In order to do so we need to explore products and solutions beyond conventional home furnishing.”

He adds, “By working together with all other departments within IKEA, the business unit of IKEA Home smart will drive the digital transformation of the IKEA range, improving and transforming existing businesses and developing new businesses to bring more diverse smart products to the many people.
