About this app

✭Requires Tasker or Locale to function✭

Please note: While this app still works with your Philips Hue bridge, and should keep doing so for the foreseeable future, it is no longer updated and maintained. Thanks for all the support over the years!

Ever wanted to control your Philips Hue Lights without reaching for a remote? Have the lights turn on automatically as soon as you enter your home? Or have the lights blink when you receive a new notification?
Well now you can do all of this with and much more with AutoHue!

AutoHue let’s you program your Hue & LIFX Light Bulbs to react to anything that Tasker supports!

Autohue supports many actions, including:

💡 Power
💡 Color
💡 Brightness
💡 Alerts (blink)
💡 Color Loop
💡 Custom JSON

Note for Hue users: for Hue lights the app only works on your local (WIFI) network, this is currently the case due to a restriction in the Hue API.

In addition to sending commands you can also retrieve the state of the light bulbs or hue bridge. Use this to create even more powerful actions!

Next to Hue and LIFX this plugin should support any light bulb that is connected to a Philips Hue bridge (e.g. Osram & Ikea Trådfri). Feel free to contact me if you run into issues with these bulbs, as they are currently not officially supported.

I didn't find any option on the website to get in touch nor in the app. But AutoHue freezes very often when executed, it's completely random, sometimes it takes 30s to go back, or just crash the app.. And in the mean time the execution keeps hanged, like blink the light and it doesn't turn it off, or setting up to change colors and increase brightness and it executes one and freezes for a while and continue the process. I tried everything, even simple command keeps freezing. I'm upset =/

So good! I just made the mimicking Sunset routine I've always wanted to turn off the lights (5) in my room through several different color and brightness changes over time. Notes though: 1) use Task - wait to add wait commands between light changes. 2) it works about 99% with ANY non-Hue Zigbee bulbs also. The 1‰ is that "transitiontime" doesn't work with them. You can get around this by adding actions that change the lights overtime though.

I'm the lowest beginner and with the help of multiple tutorials, reddit post. Special thanks to YouTube channels Autoappsand(Live Creations #41 - Custom Mode Controllable By Quick Setting) and hands-on android (Android 11 Power Menu Customization - Make It Do Just About Anything You Want) I was able to use tasker and this app to create a quick setting tile to turn my lifxs light on and off, I will attempt more things later but right now I'm enjoying this win for a beginner on my first day try.

What's new

- Improvements to how variables are shared with Tasker. Tasker will now know about the variables that a task exposes and thus they will be listed within the same action's "variable select" popup.
- Minor bugfixes
