Connect to Philips Hue Entertainment, LIFX, and Nanoleaf Light Panels and take command of your music & entertainment lighting needs. Customize one of over 50+ lighting effects using the app's 3 unique light controllers, or create your own custom effects. Light DJ has been used in lots of creative applications, including special effects for home DJs, house parties, stage & video productions, holiday decorations, mood lighting for bars & restaurants, haunted houses, or just to create the ultimate music listening experience in your living room. Light DJ is the #1 app for configurable entertainment effects for smart lighting.

MUSIC VISUALIZER: Create the ultimate music listening experience. The app listens to your music and changes the effects based on the mood of the song. Lights get active during intense parts of a song and flowy with softer melodies and magically change colors at just the right moment. Special controls for Nanoleaf allow you to control rotation and fill angle to match your panel orientation.

BEAT-SYNCED EFFECTS: Use the SceneMaker Effects controller for looping effects that sync to the beat of your music. Each of the 20+ effects can be customized with your favorite colors. Just turn on your lights and let the SceneMaker run all night long.

HUE ENTERTAINMENT: Using a new Hue Entertainment area you'll enjoy higher quality effects; all of Light DJ's effects respond faster and with better sync. Send waves of color across your room with the updated Groove Wave effect, or strobe faster with the Matrix controller.

EFFECT MAKER: Create your own looping special effects with our powerful Effects Maker. (Legacy Hue & LIFX only). Share your custom-made effects and effect sheets with your friends using AirDrop.

IPAD VERSION: A DJ controller-inspired design for ultimate live-performance lighting control. Configurable sheets allow you to setup your effects and colors in advance, and the push-button interface lets making rapid changes easy.

STUFF FOR DJs: Precision tempo controls allows you to sync the lights with your set. Optional automatic beat detection using your device's built-in microphone. Also supports Ableton Link and MIDI Clock Sync for syncing tempo across devices, and MIDI Program Change or Control Change codes for controlling effects.

Very Friendly

So I got the app, and I fell in love with it. So I upgraded one of the features. It stopped working and closed every time I tapped one of the features I wanted to use. So I contacted the developer. Him and I went back and forth giving me suggestions on trying to fix the app. I told him none of the solutions worked. So he was very nice about going through the program to have an update. I updated as soon as he emailed me back that there was a new update. Ever since that update, the app has been working beautifully. I’m so in love with this app.


Great app. A great capability was removed recently.

It has been great with my Hue lights and Nanoleaf. The latest update removed the background run, which I enjoyed a lot, because I was able to continue to use my phone, while the lights were changing. Now it a bummer I cannot even leave the app or lock the phone, otherwise the lights sequence stops... the developer mentioned that was due apple power savings, but I imagine that it uses the same amount of power when an apps run in the background, and this is done all the time in apple devices. Please bring back that setting.


Excellent App!

Not only does this app include so many different options for customization (many of which are unmatched in similar apps on the App Store), but I initially had an issue with my phone’s settings preventing the app from working correctly and the developer worked extensively with me to ensure the app worked correctly. I highly recommend this app for its capabilities and customer service!
