Light Control for Hue
By MHCP Software Productions
Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.
PLEASE NOTE: This app has reached end of maintenance!
It has completely been rewritten and is now especially more user friendly end less complicated!
The new app is named: Lighting Pro
- Make Your Lights Think For Themselves -
With Light Control, you will be able to automate all of your Philips Hue lights.
You can let your indoor lights go on at a specified time before sunset and let them change during the evening, as it is getting darker outside and cosy inside.
In case you have one or more lights outside, you can use them as a garden light and, for safety, may choose to keep them on all night. Even when you go to bed and hit the "All Off" switch.
Further more, you may also link one or more off your calendars to it, so the system knows if you have to get up early tomorrow. If you do so, you're morning lights will be on and awaiting you when you get downstairs.
A working Philips Hue Bridge and one ore more Hue lights are required to use this app.
What's New in Version 3.1.2
Fixed a bug where lights could enter 'Alert' state (start blinking) when activating a scene
Steep Learning Curve but it is essential
There are lots of featurs here and it takes some time to get it to work the way you want it to. That said, I find it very useful.
For example, other apps I have looked at and a few that I have used in iOS or TVOS turn lights on at sunset. That is not really very useful because it is dark already at that point. This app lets you turn them on in advance.
You can use a calendar to turn on special scenes. It also has a holiday mode, which I think will be useful in the near future.
It is not going to break the bank so try it. And don’t give up because the learning curve is steep.
I want my money back!
This is not a user friendly app nor is it intuitive at all. You have to set up all new scenes separate from the ones that are already on your phone. Then, once the scene is created, the path from the menu icon to get to your scene is way too long, (drop down the menu, click activate scene, drop down another menu, choose your scene… ), hokey… Don’t wast your money on this one!!
I want a refund
This app is not at all user friendly and not able to handle fading the lights to 100% bright at sunrise and 100% dark at sunset
