Ambieye for Philips Hue

By Dmitry Sadakov

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


Ambieye is an iOS app to control your Philip Hue lights.

With over a thousand users for the Chrome Store extension -- now an app!

Home automation was never faster. Choose a dynamic scene, dim the lights, browse 3 million colors from, or chose 16k colors for your finger, all from the comfort of your phone.


• 10+ dynamic light scenes, including: Romantic Red, Disco, Christmas, New Years fireworks, Police lights!
• Single-click virtual light switch for quick on/off of the selected group.
• Auto bridge discovery & manual bridge IP entry.
• Office & warm lights presets — Kelvin degrees, Fluorescent lights.
• 16k full color spectrum selection via two color wheels.
• Select to control groups of lights, or individual lights.
• Access to previously used scenes.
• 3 Million palettes from colourlovers!


0. You will need the Philips Hue physical hardware: the bridge and bulbs.
1. After installing Ambieye it will try to find your bulbs via or ask you for the Bridge IP.
2. When the bridge is found, you see the "press the link button" message - press the middle button on the white bridge to authenticate the app.
3. Control your lights from any within the same Wifi network.

No further setup necessary. The application dims all the lights on and off with a single mouse click, the dynamic scenes work as long as the app is open.

Customer Reviews

It works...

It works, but it's clear it's a web page trapped in an app shell. The touch interactions are horrible and it's generally just a cash grab port.


It's obviously just the webpage wrapped up. It can't even run in the background. Do NOT pay for this app.

Not good

Does not animate in the background.

As someone else said, not a true iOS app.
