Meet the Hue app. The amazing way to control every Philips Hue product in your home. All from the palm of your hand or from your wrist with the Apple Watch.
With Hue, you’ll see light in a whole new way. It lets you set the ideal lighting for every occasion. It’s clever, intuitive and connected. It‘s a whole new experience.
We call it PERSONAL WIRELESS LIGHTING.
Hue lets you express who you are, through the way you light your home.
Hue can be wherever you want and you can access it whenever you want. Any room. Any space. All wirelessly, through your smart device or Apple Watch.
At its heart, Hue is a lighting solution for the home. It’s functional and practical. But it can also be emotive and inspiring. It’ll change the way you think about home lighting. Forever.
Philips Hue starter pack (bulbs + Bridge or Bloom + Bridge or Iris + Bridge or LightStrips + Bridge). Single Hue lighting products and Hue accessories can then be added, up to a maximum of 50 products per bridge.
What's New in Version 1.8.2
Added support for Apple Watch
- We listened to the feedback and increased the widget size to two rows of scenes
- Fixed a crash in Alarms & Timers overview on iOS 8.3
Lockscreen widgets no longer work after update
This is my hue daily driver. I'm dinging it some starts because after the latest update my lockscreen (and apple watch) widgets no longer work reliably, randomly activating only some lights, sometimes with the wrong colors (I have 12 lights so maybe this is a problem only for hue addicts).
Hopefully an update will fix this; the widgets worked well before but right now they are unusable except for turning off all lights.
I use several hue apps, and if you are a hue owner then you should check out the other apps out there too, especially the music and dynamic ones. My favorite right now is Scintillatro.
This one works well for setting timers and it has an Apple watch app, which should be handy once the widgets start working again! I have about 30 different timers running different scenes and use this app to keep all of them organized.
I recommend setting up an account with hue and syncing scenes and alarms through it. This allows you to control your lights via a web browser, which comes in handy when...
Alarm still NOT working
Contrary to other reviewers, my Hue App (on iPhone 6) is still crashing reliably every time I open the "Alarms & Timers" tab. As the wake-up feature was my main reason for purchasing Hue, I am disappointed by the lack of care that went into the software of a promising product. Setting a backup alarm because Hue is unreliable would defeat the purpose of a system that wakes me up "peacefully". Should the app not be fixed soon, I will have to return the hardware. Two stars for the other features, which would be cool if I owned a disco.
Still Lacking in many ways
Widget is laggy, dimmer may not be possible due to Apple's limitations but at least please improve the functionality, it's too buggy and not responsive enough. The Apple Watch app is not ready. It needs glances support. Same as widget, it needs improved functionality and responsiveness. Please update to app to represent Phillips as a responsible company in 2015. Let's see what you do this year, so far I've only seen screw-ups.
