Superior App

I have had Philips Hues lights for about 5 years. This is by far the best app. Worth every single upgrade. I will continue to support this app as long as they stay around. I hope you will add more fun automated scenes. I love the thunderstorm & water. It would be great to get some new ones soon. It’s worth it to figure out how this app works. It really has everything that you’ll ever need all in one place. The only thing I’m having an issue with is the animations. Whenever I put it on concert, the thunderstorm plays at the same time. It’s weird and pretty annoying. I’ve tried refreshing and even deleted the app and restored it. It’s still there. Any ideas how to fix it? Thanks

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the review and feedback. The concert animation uses several audio tracks and creates multiple music/sound effect loops. One of these loops occasionally adds a thunderclap during the animation. If you have a recommendation for another sound to play, please contact support and this can be changed in Hue Lights v3.3.

Saved Me From Buying a Second Bridge

I utilized this app to exceed the dimmer switch limit of 7. Philips used to allow 12, but decreased the threshold to 7 after an update. Each dimmer switch comes preinstalled with a set of rules, and the reason you’re limited to 7 dimmer switches is to keep the total rule count within a predefined threshold. I used this app to delete the preprogrammed rules and I customized each switch carefully so I’m comfortably under the rule limit. I have 14 dimmer switches in operation on the same bridge, along with 47 lights, and I haven’t experienced any issues. This app saved me from having to buy a new bridge, and I’m so grateful.

Phenomenal app and great sunrise feature

This app can initially seem overwhelming if you are used to the philips app, but play around with it and you will find it provides the full detailed control of your lights that simpler apps don't. For such improved control of expensive light bulbs, the add-ons are cheap and I am happy to support the future development of this app, as I plan to use the heck out of it for years to come.

The sunrise is really nice, starts red and very dim, makes full use of the color bulbs, and can be tweaked in many ways so you can get your own personal perfect gentle wake-up.
