The hue control for everyday life.
Switch your lights on or off from the Notification Center - This is the idea of Hue Widget.
Turning on or off of your Hue lights has never been so easy. Just select a group , and your actions are limited to this group. The innovative widget allows you to control your lights through different views using its vertical Tabbar. So you can decide whether you want to manage your groups, individual lamps or scenes.
The integrated brightness control of the groups or lights view provides you for every situation in your daily life an appropriate brightness level. So you can use your lights quickly as a nightlight, subtle lighting while watching TV, as normal lighting or very bright lighting. In addition, the widget contains a random button. Be inspired by the random button by leaving your lights shine in random colors.
The app itself allows you to configure your widget. The widget uses the connection to the bridge that you have set via the app. In addition, you can control and manage your lights, groups and scenes. As in the widget you can quickly select between different views by the Tabbar. In each view for controlling the lamps, groups or scenes you can tap the left button to turn your lights on or off. By simply swiping over one row you can control the brightness precisely. With a tap on a row you will reach the detail view of a lamp, group or scene and can configure more detailed settings.
Expand Hue Widget with addons. You can find the Addon Store in the settings menu of Hue Widget. Currently you can purchase four addons.
- Buttons Plus Addon
The Buttons Plus addon includes additional features for Hue Widget.
The control buttons of the widget provide alternative functions if you tap them twice . For example you can tap the ON button twice to activate lights in your favorite color.
If you hold a Control Button you activate its function in a transition. For example you can use the OFF button to turn off your lights slowly over time.
In the app you can use the additional functions by tapping the „more button“ and the watch app displays additional buttons to use the new features.
- Color Schemes Addon
With this addon you can create your own Color Schemes and manage them. The widget and the watch app receives an additional button to circle through your Color Schemes. In the app you activate a Color Scheme in the detail view of a light or group. A Color Scheme represents a set of percentage distributed colors. If you use a Color Scheme, the specified colors are randomly assigned to your lamps.
- GUI Color Addon
With this addon you can use your favorite color to give your widget a personal appearance.

Ratings and Reviews
Worked flawlessly...at first.
The first few times I used it, it was perfect. The light “group” functionality and widget settings were exactly what I was looking for...then suddenly things went south.
This app stopped connecting to my bridge, while at the same time the default Hue app would still connect. I tried setting my hue to a static IP, relaunching the app, restarting my bridge & router, restarting my phone, removing & reinstalling the app, changing wireless networks...nothing worked!
Needless to say, I’m a little bummed. I really liked the app, but I can’t use it now. Shucks.
Used to be a great app...
This was my favorite app for controlling Hue lights. Controlling colors of individual bulbs and groups made it easy. Recently, every time I want to use it I get, “Connection to Bridge is lost.” Even when I reacquaint the app to the bridge, it loses connection. I switched to a new app for my Hue lights. I’ll check back to see if it ever gets fixed but there are some nice and reliable apps out there.
Did you try to give your bridge a static ip?
I want to like this app but..
This app has a lot of customization especially with the widget of course. You control individual lights or all of them groups as well as rooms. It what i find frustrating is on a non-color bulb, a19, I see that I have to use the bar at the very top of the color picker, warm through cool, but I’m not seeing anything change on either my bulbs. Is this broken?
thanks for reporting this issue. We will work on the issue.
