Ratings and Reviews
More Customizable Please
After testing multiple apps to use on my LIFX bulbs, this is the one I’ve settled on as coming closest to my needs. Would have been 5 stars if there were more options to lock all bulbs to the same color. I’m trying to animate a setting where all bulbs pulsate the same color with random brightness and then all slowly shift to a new color after a few minutes. Whirlwind is the closest preset I could find but all bulbs are different colors with no option to link them.
Still one of my favorites
I’ve tried a ton of apps to control my hue lights (I’ve got over 20 bulbs), and try new ones all the time, but I keep coming back to Scintillator. Love the degrees of control. Interface has a learning curve, but I’ve found it to be worth it. Hope the developer updates it to work with the upcoming Siri Shortcuts (if that’s even possible). It would be AWESOME to be able to ask Siri for a particular lighting animation.
Great Philips Hue app!
Ability to create endless themes and effects! I have been using this for about six or seven years. Only drawback is that it is not updated frequently but that being said I have never had one problem in regards to the program working.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
