Description

iConnectHue will bring out the best of your Philips Hue lights! Organize your Hue Lamps: Assemble groups for rooms, areas or special purposes. Light up your party, dinner or bedroom in your favorite colors and moods with easy to use drag & drop-functions! Want to go to bed? Just start up the integrated sleep timer and close your eyes. Intelligent timers only act when you need them.

Have you got a Hue Tap, Hue Dimmer or Motion Sensor and want more flexibility? Colors, scenes, sleep timers, reminders, brightness, blinking, on/off and (w/ optional animation editor) even color animations! The motion sensor can either turn off or return to the last state of inactivity.

Philips has made it "app of the month" 3 times: iConnectHue was made to be powerful, but still solves complex tasks with ease. This all comes in a nice clean package. It's possibly the only app you will need for your Philips Hue Lights!

iConnectHue is also available for the iPad: "iConnectHue HD" has even better usability thanks to the larger iPad screen.

What's New

Version 3.2.0

Discotainment - we bring Disco to your home!

Thanks to Hue Entertainment your lights can be controlled much faster than before. iConnectHue supports this with "Discotainment" - a music visualization with various possibilities, which can make your home a Disco! To help you understand how to get the best out of it, we also deliver you 6 individual settings that show what can be done with the visualization.

You can try Discotainment for up to a minute for free. After that, you'll have to wait a bit. If you like the functionality, please purchase it - we think it's worth it!

In case you don't like to dance and prefer your sofa, we've got you covered:
• Toggle your motion sensors from within the widget
• Turn off Hue Entertainment directly within the app
• Search your lights by name in the light list (in case you have too many lights...)
• Improved context sensitive tutorials should make using iConnectHue even easier
• Support for the Innr Plug SP 120 and the Innr Lightstrip FL 130 C

Please note: We had to update our Terms and Conditions with this release to comply with the law (GDPR, heard of it?), to be in line with Apples requirements and because of this cool new functionality. It doesn't change what we do or have done in the past, or what you haven't already accepted by using the App store, nor does it change the services that are in use.
By installing this release, you will have to agree to our new Terms and Conditions within 30 days.

Easily the best app for Philips Hue

Whatknows101

This is easily the best app for controlling your Philips Hue lights! FAR better, even, than the app from Philips Hue! The ability to create scenes, animations, etc., makes it one or two touches to have your lights do exactly what you want them to do! The apartment I built doesn’t have windows, so I was looking to build a lighting system that could follow the sun in both brightness and color temperature in the built-in “windows” I created to emulate sunrise and sunset and all the stages of lighting throughout the day. The systems I was looking at were going to cost $2,000-$5,000! Then I found Philips Hue and this app. It allows me to do all of that and so much more. I now have my entire house automated with the Hue lights and accessories through this app. The addition of motion detectors and programming to control exactly what I want to happen is incredible. And when I want them to change to something different, one touch of the button is all it takes. Create zones, rooms......whatever you want and have it do whatever you want! Just a great app!!

Just Stop looking and Use this App

Anyone invested in the Philips Hue ecosystem for as long as I have has probably spent hours on end looking for the best application that just “works”. I have been a Phillips Hue user now for over 3 years (which is an eternity in the IOT world) and have tried at least 20 different apps and have spent a lot of money on some of those apps only to be disappointed. I’ve been using iConnectHue for well over a year now and it continues to get better and better and handle my crazy smart home with ease. I have an assortment of 45 smart Phillips Hue bulbs, 6 Hue Dimmers, 4 Hue Taps, 3 Hue Motion Detectors and use this app daily (even when deployed overseas I would check in on the House). I think I’ve used the native Phillips app only twice in the last year. Learn from my mistake, don’t waste hours scavenging the App Store and loads of money experimenting on other apps. Get iConnectHue now and use that time and money on something that works!

Finally create rules that make sense

I’ve been looking for a great hue app for months. After reading more about iConnectHue, i found out it’s exactly what I’ve been looking for, and so much more. You can actually use motion sensors properly now. Thanks and keep up the good work!

I wanted to add something though. One of the reasons it took me so long to try this app out was the way the interface looks. And it’s not exactly intuitive to work with. By far the best app I’ve used, functionality wise. I love it. Just the way the lights and rooms are represented isn’t too appealing but that’s not a huge deal I guess (though it is why I didn’t download it right away). But some of the touch actions. Like double tapping but holding down to do this or that. I’m not sure. But I would think a UI expert (along with a redesign of the icons/etc that represent the lights) would make it so much easier to work with and also get you guys some more customers.

Other than that - love it!!
