iConnectHue for Philips Hue App 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! THIS IS is the iPhone version! "iConnectHue HD" for the iPad has even better usability thanks to the larger iPad screen.

Our team will try hard to solve any problem that you may encounter. Why iConnectHue? • Full feature set - control almost every aspect of your hues - and constant updates • Family focus: Scene sharing, family geofencing (first one turns on the light, last one off - optional), group hiding (animation sharing requires same iCloud account) • Everything non-music related happens on your bridge - your iPhone can stay off! • Upload color animations to your bridge.

  • The best app for hue

    By Cessna131
    I’ve tried every single app for hue control. This one is by far the best. While a little hard to get used to the UI, the functionality is unsurpassed.
  • Worth 100+ dollars

    By AlexandreCzeczko
    I have 45 hue lights of all kinds that I have been purchasing over the years and just recently discovered this app and it’s amazing. Several things that I had just accepted couldn’t be done(light animations, grouping across rooms, advanced setting for remote controls or timers, etc) are available and work beautifully in this app. For those complaining about the in-app purchases, I believe this app is easily worth 100+ dollars.
  • Suddenly it cannot find my bridge

    By Radmom05
    The app worked great for a few months. Now, however, it keeps saying I'm not connected to the bridge (I am). Now it won't work at all.
  • Scam. Don’t get scammed

    By clarkams
    You have to pay to use anything. Buy the actual 1$ hue pro app from Phillips. Again, to do anything, you have to pay 2$, even to create your own setting (lol). Don’t do it. Big scam. Make your own “hues” for free with any other app. This is a knockoff designed to trick you into thinking it’s the other app. You have the wrong app. This is a scam.
  • Greedy

    By Music!Man?
    Be prepared app works great and is super functional but after paying $5.99 for the app they charge you for every single feature you want to use after that. It’s like you pay $6 just for a trial.
  • Rip off!

    By mgallagher
    This is a $5 app that nickel and dimes you for functionality that should have been included. I feel like I bought a half finished demo. This app is deceptively marketed. Nearly every feature after you buy the app requires an additional in-app purchase! Greedy devs selling half a product. I want a refund. USELESS!
  • Even With a Few Bugs Still the Best

    By TransRapid
    Developers are responsive, bugs are always annoying but overall this app is far more feature packed than anything else.
  • Terrible money grubbing interface

    By BiggerTexan
    Complex hard to use interface and wants in app purchase for basic things.
  • Still the best and worth every penny

    By janiemac13
    Intuitive, reliable and outstanding customer support. And excellent free updates, including the latest for outdoor motion sensors. I’ve tried 5 different Hue control apps (all paid apps besides the Philips one), and this one really is the best. Thanks for the Siri Shortcuts update, and the essential last-state update that should prevent all the bedroom lights from turning on if (when) there’s a power outage in the middle of the night!! Love it!!!
  • Everything you want is an upgrade

    By Drawer feller
    This app was highly rated and recommended but not free. I’m fine to pay for an app but out of the box it isn’t anything special. EVERYTHING you want the app to do is an upgrade. Seriously, I am happy to pay for an app; I’m not a Millennial. But unless you want to pay a separate charge for every little scene or feature, skip it.
