  1. Oh, cool! I am definitely looking forward to that. My original backup plan was to get a raspberry pi with Home Assistant on it, which I thought (it's been a few weeks ago I looked into this) would be a solution. However, the fastest I can maybe get one would be April/May because of the shortage. But a solution without the need of extra hardware would be a better outcome also for those who don't want/need a Home Assistant added to their setup, so I'm looking forward to that possibility!
  2. Dear community, After several hours looking for guids online, I haven't gotten to a solution. Consider me an absolute noob in programming, protocols etc. although at the top level I have a basic understanding of how things work. I have a Nvidia Shield pro (2019) with Kodi installed and CinemaVision. I have just a few lightbulbs in the room (5) which I'd like to control through CinemaVision. As I understand (correct me if I'm wrong), an API is needed so that the Ikea gateway can be controlled. The first thing I found was this Git: https://github.com/home-assistant-libs/pytradfri. I tried to understand it, but I can't get it to work. I just have no idea where to start. I also have no idea whether this Git is any help or not. If it doesn't seem possible to control it directly through 'Ikea's' route, maybe an alternative by controlling the integration with the Google Home app (so not the Google Home device), which controls the lights too (which I don't understand completely; Ikea's own app isn't capable to control it out of the home network, while it works through the Google app). Any other suggestions are more than welcome
