We’re always looking for smart ways to make busy family life simpler – without breaking the bank. And it doesn’t get much cleverer than being able to control your home with a simple tap of your smartphone.

Connected lighting is nothing new. But, when we heard IKEA had released a new range of smart bulbs at a pocket-friendly price, we had to take a closer look.



Join DADventurer for a family-proof product test


To help do just that, we’ve recruited one of Britain’s leading Dad bloggers – Dave the DADventurer

Take a look at what happened when Dave and his pint-sized sidekick got to grips with the TRÅDFRI Gateway kit for the first time.



SPONSORED POST: This collaboration with Dave the DADventurer was conceived and paid for in its entirety by npower. The IKEA TRÅDFRI Gateway Kit was purchased at full price and gifted to Dave by npower to enable him to create this vlog.
