Philips Hue bulb, Ikea Gateway with Alexa control?


Distinguished Member
I have a load of GU10 Ikea Tradfri bulbs in my kitchen connected to an IKEA Gateway and an Ikea remote.

Using the Alexa IKEA skill, I was able to discover all the bulbs and set up a group called “Kitchen” and can turn them all off/on and control the light temp with my voice.

I updated my Echo Show in the kitchen to an 8 gen2, which came with a cheap Philips Hue E27 smart bulb, perfect for the dining room light.

I’ve connected the Hue bulb to my IKEA gateway and a second IKEA remote. I can control the bulb though the IKEA app and with the remote, but for the life of me, I can’t work out how to add it to Alexa for voice control, like all my other IKEA Tradfri bulbs???

I’ve tried to discover the bulb as an IKEA bulb and as a Hue bulb, but it’s not discovered?

Is this possible and if so, what am I doing wrong?
