In this case it is the Ikea starvkind, an indoor air purifier that is completely hidden in a table and that is also compatible with HomeKit products, so you will be able to manage its operation with the Tradfri bridge.
The air purifier works autonomously although it is true that its functions can be controlled and programmed through the hub of link Tradfri and the Ikea Home smart app. It has up to 5 operating speeds and it is possible to use it in “automatic” mode or even to program its on and off thanks to the HomeKit automations.
