iConnectHue will bring out the best of your Philips Hue lights! Organize your Hue Lamps: Assemble groups for rooms, areas or special purposes. Light up your party, dinner or bedroom in your favorite colors and moods with easy to use drag & drop-functions! Want to go to bed? Just start up the integrated sleep timer and close your eyes. Intelligent timers only act when you need them.
Have you got a Hue Tap, Hue Dimmer or Motion Sensor and want more flexibility? Colors, scenes, sleep timers, reminders, brightness, blinking, on/off and (w/ optional animation editor) even color animations! The motion sensor can either turn off or return to the last state of inactivity.
Philips has made it "app of the month" 3 times: iConnectHue was made to be powerful, but still solves complex tasks with ease. This all comes in a nice clean package. It's possibly the only app you will need for your Philips Hue Lights!
THIS IS is the iPhone version! "iConnectHue HD" for the iPad has even better usability thanks to the larger iPad screen.

It's less than a single Hue light. App development costs time and money - have a look what app development means:
It can do much more than Philips' app:
It's not long until Christmas - but we already have some presents for you: A functionality to define the startup behaviour of your lights after losing power! By now you can access this setting for each light under tine "i" symbol, if it supports this. If not, iConnectHue will tell you why and assist you with firmware updates.
• Warm white - as you know it
• Last state - if off then off, if on then on
• Last color - always turn on with last color
• Color - define which color your lights should turn on with
This time we have especially taken care to ease you the use of iConnectHue:
• There's a wizard now to set up scenes and animations for the widget, switches and motion sensors. Endless lists have come to an end!
• We improved the timer overview - it can show more and still is easier to read!
Your feedback is welcome! Never forget, this app wouldn't be here without you! Please leave a positive rating in the App Store, if you like these changes or want to support iConnectHue.
If you run into any issues, don’t hesitate and use the contact function in the app. You will surely get support!
Ratings and Reviews
Delivers very little functionality for the $5 base price.
I expected this app to be somewhat decent given Philips’ recommendation and the high user reviews. I was disappointed to see that almost all features are locked behind more paywalls in the app. It would be another $10 at least to enable everything. Music syncing IS NOT included for $5. If Apple didn’t make refunds such a pain I would return this app.
Lots of features but confused mess
The features are great but oh dear the UI design is awful.
The EA Games of apps
Okayish app, but you pay 5 bucks for it, and then get super limited functionality unless you shell out MORE money through in-app purchases, with the minimum amount extra being $2 for each additional feature. Hell, you can’t even add a second hue bridge without shelling out another $4. There are free apps that do most of the stuff this thing nickles and dimes you for, and the only features that would make it worth a full 5 smackers are extra $! My smart home friends were considering buying this app and I got it as the guinea pig. Luckily for them though now they know to stay away unless they’re looking to drop like 20 clams on getting most of the features and presets. Sad!
