Simple Switch - for Philips Hue and Thermodo

By Eric Marschner

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


Simple Switch is a simple app to control a single group of Philips Hue lights from your iOS device or your Apple Watch.

The interface is really... simple. A large toggle switch to turn the lights on and off. A vertical slider to control the brightness. A popover to allow the user to select from a few pleasing colors.

Do you need a way for visitors (babysitters, grandparents, friends) to control your Philips Hue lights without giving them your personal iOS device? If you have an older iOS device available, install Simple Switch on it and leave it for your guests to use.

Simple Switch also has support for the Thermodo and can display the temperature if the user has a Thermodo. (see

Customer Reviews

Simply great

I love this app because it is simple and just works perfectly. The user interface is simple and clear. No clunky UI. No hidden extra cost features have sprung out. You get way more than you pay for - it's free.

To the author: Thank-you for writing this great app and providing it to the community. I will look for more apps from you, but please don't bundle them into this app - its perfect just the way it is, and there are very few apps I can say that about!

Works great with Bloom

I put this app on my kids iPods and they control their own bloom lights. Easy for them to use.

Easy setup.

A simple solution which works.
