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.

Update - great app with many options

Crazy Excalibur

After working with the support team I am more impressed than ever with this product. While it can be complicated, it's because of the many options it has. I'd rather have more options than not. The default hues app is good but limited compared to this one. I've emailed their support a few times and they are fantastic. I updated this from 2 to 5 stars.

Awesome customer support!

Spam spam spam to get emails

I had a question about the lightning sequence feature so I emailed support. They said there was no way to do what I wanted but that they would look into making it happen on the next update. And then they did!! Who does that?? Great app experience. There are so many things you can do. Take the time to learn all the features, you won’t regret it.
