This is really slick. I trust that Ikea seems like a good ecosystem to invest in. None of this seems like a one-off. I'm definitely planning on keeping a closer eye on what they're doing. I had no idea these existed.

Yes, the IKEA ecosystem is quite nice. Easy to get started, it's affordable and everything works offline by default.
Another good point is, that you get all the basic components (buttons, switches, dimmers, light bulbs, plugs, motion sensors and more) from the same manufacturer. Also, I think the ZigBee radio protocol is a good choice in general.
