Ratings and Reviews

Easy to use and excellent app


I am very happy with my hue lighting and the app takes lighting in my house to the next level.

I can tune from cool white light when I'm doing work and I can change to warm light when I want to relax or when I have friends over. Coloured lighting? No problem! Hue has everything.

I now wake up to a beautiful sunset that fades in a few mins before my alarm sets in so I wake up to comfortable lighting that my eyes can adjust comfortably.

This is all done all through this app. The possibilities of my lights are endless, it really makes me appreciate lighting so much more! Excellent product and very easy to use app.

Great product.


The Phillips lights are a great product. Has a lot of fun with them. Only problem is the Hue app. Needs a bit of finessing on the interface. My wish list

1. Ability to group lights so that they act as one chandelier or as one room. At the moment it just lists all fittings which then need to be managed individually.

2. Better custom lighting interface. The ability to save preset conditions for groups of lights.

Hopefully the app will continually evolve and improve in functionality.

Bottom line. Loads of fun and well worth the money.
5 star for the product. 3 Star for the app.

Log in to my hue not working


App sends you to a 404 page when you try to link it to your my hue account. Without this link, a lot of features cannot be used. Philips support is useless.
