About this app

OnSwitch for Philips Hue has a beautiful, simple user interface but it's also powerful. Your Hue lights come alive with a single click!

Our Hue app connects to your Philips Hue Smart Bridge, creating immersive animated experiences with your Hue lights!

There are many categories of light scenes:

Everyday lighting to enhance family time or working from home. There is even a Sunset sleep timer and a Sunrise Wake Up alarm.

Animated holiday experiences for Halloween, Christmas, New Years and many more.

Party/Disco lighting to make your home gatherings come alive.

Relaxing ambiance lighting with smooth color flows, nature scenes, health spa style experiences.

Even fun light scenes for kids such as "Baby Animals" and "Emergency" which simulates police cars and fire engines.

Get the best Hue App, get OnSwitch!

HERO LIGHTING
Our Hue light scenes have cinematic flair. Music sound tracks set the mood while our an animation engine delivers bursts of light and sound where anything can happen. Santa lands on your house! Zombies attack! You are in a spaceship battle!

Other light scenes transport you to a Lush Forest, Venice or even Deep Space to chill out in the Orion Nebula listening to superb ambient electronic music.

CREATIVE LIGHTING
OnSwitch gives you smarter, clearer ways to control your smart lights. Instead of guessing what Hue's "Light Recipes" mean, our Everyday Lighting album presents gorgeous photos of antique and halogen bulbs or a skylight so it's clear what kind of light you are going to get. Our fluorescent tube even flickers on like the real thing!

Want Color? Other apps make you drag a pin around a color wheel. OnSwitch makes it easy with curated Pastels and Accent colors. Warm and Cool color flows. And "Color Splat!" our exclusive color discovery feature that's always fun and a surprise.


SUNRISE ALARM & SUNSET SLEEP TIMER
Wake up with a beautiful sunrise and your favorite music! Go to sleep with a sunset, optimized for better sleep.

LIGHT GROUPS
Easily create and manage groups of bulbs. Control each group independently. OnSwitch manages groups on your Philips Hue Bridge so it will play nicely with your other apps!

IMPORTANT!
• You will need Philips Hue lights along with the Hue Smart Bridge or LIFX bulbs to use this app.
• LIFX support is not guaranteed. If connected, it may not support all LIFX devices, or all app functions and animated content.

I loved the app when it used to work (on Android). Then it started always freezing up. After several minutes, it would eventually work. Then in addition to freezing, it started crashing...more and more. It would work after restarting though. Now it never finds my smart bulbs at all. Never works or recovers from this. Developers have apparently abandoned support of the app on Android. I'll be uninstalling it if it doesn't start working again soon . Be wary of spending money on this app.

Hi Kurt! Try our latest release. It should fix many if not all of these problems. There's also a new user interface and over 30 new and expanded albums. It's a huge upgrade over the old app version. We are fully supporting Android with new content and bug fixes and cool stuff. Let us know what you think!

Originally this app froze at first. I was about to submit a bug report and it started working. Connected to both my hue and lifx bulbs! I was thrilled! After awhile, the app froze and I closed out of it. Ever since the app just freezes after opening and never recovers. I've also used this on my lgg2 and it has the same issues. Please fix these issues and this would be an amazing app. I wanted to buy the other effects but can't even get the app to load fully.

My only app that gets hung up for some time before being able to interact with it upon opening. Seems badly managed as no longer connects to Philips Hue and app doesn't provide me a way to reconnect, else that feature is also not working on the app. Would recommend you stay away else get stuck with a useless app. Edit: The app is alive, seriously good job by the developers. Interface is smooth, no minutes worth of lag anymore.
