Animated presets cannot be used for schedules SO much better than the original Philips Hue app! Just one thing: Why can't I use the animated presets as an alarm? I would like to use a sunrise animation to wake me up every morning. At the moment I'm using tasker to trigger the preset at the specific time, but it would be a little more convenient, to have this option within the app. In any case: thanks so much for making the "Hue experience" even greater!
This is an excellent app, and one of only two that I've given a full 5 stars to in all the years I've been using Android apps. The GUI is probably one of the simplest and well-thought out that I've come across, and the response of the Hue lights is almost immediate. If it would talk to IFTTT (please?) and/or could be integrated into SmartThings, I'd give it another star and gladly send the developer some more coin. :)
Happy to find a feature rich Hue app. Switched from iOS and needed a new app for my lights. You guys are spoiled. This app is fantastic. Was super easy to migrate thanks to its ability to pull data off the bridge. Wish I could choose icons for the widget instead of labels.
Light problems after install I loved this as soon as i installed it, but soon, problems started occurring. Individual bulbs would randomly come on in the middle of the night. Bulbs would be deleted from rooms randomly. Dim blue room presets would suddenly have one bright red bulb. External access requires port forwarding. Uninstalled.
Brilliant app & great customer service! This is a great app with so many features. I did run into a small problem with getting the away from home feature to work (my router was to blame). I sent an email to the developer asking for help. He emailed me back within 5 minutes! The one thing I would like to see is a geofence option in the tasker. If you're new to hue & trying to decide which app to get, look no further. Download it, you won't be disappointed.
This app is full of half-baked features. You get a really rich set of controls, but it is riddled with bugs. It would be a five star app if everything worked as expected.
- Added animated presets!
- Performance improvements
