IKEA Idasen Desk

The IKEA IDÅSEN integration allows you to connect your IKEA Idåsen motorized desk to Home Assistant, making it possible to control the desk height and also monitor height changes from the physical controller.

The recommended way to connect the desk to Home Assistant is by using an ESPHome Bluetooth Proxy, as they provide the best experience.

If you are not using an ESPHome Bluetooth Proxy, you need to keep bluetoothctl (or any other Bluetooth Agent) open during the integration setup, or it will fail to authenticate with the desk. The connection process is also less reliable than with ESPHome, so you may need to retry a few times until it succeeds. This is due to a limitation in the third-party Bluetooth implementation used by Home Assistant.


To add the IKEA Idasen Desk integration to your Home Assistant instance, use this My button:

Home Assistant will display a list of addresses of the available desks, and you just need to select the one you want to add. Repeat the process to add more than one desk.

If you see an "No unconfigured devices found" message, make sure that the desk is in Bluetooth pairing mode. For that, press the small button with the Bluetooth logo on the controller until it starts blinking (about 3 seconds).
