Ikea turns its smart home products into its own division within the company – MobileSyrup
The Swedish furniture company Ikea is cementing its smart home products as a future part of its company with the Ikea Home Smart business unit.
While the company has been making smart home products for a while, but now it’s committed and plans to accelerate its plans.
There’s no mention in the company’s blog post what precisely this means, but it seems likely that we’ll start to see a lot more smart home products from Ikea.
“We have decided to invest significantly in Home Smart across IKEA to fast-forward the development. This is the biggest New Business we are establishing since the introduction of Children’s IKEA,” says Peter van der Poel, Manager IKEA Range & Supply.
Ikea is also supposed to be launching a series of smart blinds.
