About this app

The official Philips Hue app is the most comprehensive way to organize, control, and customize your Philips Hue smart lights and accessories.

Organize your smart lights
Group your lights into Rooms or Zones — your entire downstairs floor or all the lights in the living room, for example — that mirror the physical rooms in your home.

Easily control your lights — from anywhere
Use the app to control your lights anywhere you have an internet connection.

Explore the Hue scene gallery
Created by professional lighting designers, the scenes in the scene gallery can help you set the mood for any occasion. You can even create your own scenes based on a photo or your favorite colors.

Set up bright home security
Make your home feel safer, no matter where you are. The Security Center lets you program your Secure cameras, Secure contact sensors, and indoor motion sensors to send you alerts when they detect activity. Trigger light and sound alarms, call the authorities or a trusted contact, and monitor your home in real-time.

Get the best light for any moment of the day
Let your lights change automatically throughout the day with the Natural light scene — so you feel more energized, focused, relaxed, or rested at the right times. Just set the scene to watch your lights change with the sun’s movement, transitioning from cool blue tones in the morning to warmer, relaxing hues for sunset.

Automate your lights
Make your smart lights work around your daily routine. Whether you want your lights to gently wake you up in the morning or greet you when you get home, setting up customizable automations in the Philips Hue app is effortless.

Sync your lights to TV, music, and games
Make your lights flash, dance, dim, brighten, and change color in sync with your screen or sound! With the Philips Hue Play HDMI sync box, the Philips Hue Sync for TV or desktop apps, or Spotify, you can create totally immersive experiences.

Set up voice control
Use Apple Home, Amazon Alexa, or Google Assistant to control your smart lights with voice commands. Turn lights on and off, dim and brighten, or even change colors — completely hands-free.

Create widgets for quick control
Control your smart lights even faster by creating widgets on your home screen. Turn lights on or off, adjust brightness and temperature, or set scenes – all without even opening the app.

App is convoluted and extremely difficult to navigate, both during setup and everyday use. Setting up simple actions with Hue Physical Switch is almost incomprehensible. The Hue Labs feels completely disconnected to the setup and app, and is almost impossible to work and understand. App is designed way too complicated, with seamingly powerful features, and in that it fails in the most simple aspects of daily use and setup. Over designed, over complicated, too much. Get back to basics

Extremely lackluster in features, very limited controls. How is Govee (the cheaper alternative) better? I can set my Govee to any color, any time, any effect at anytime right out of the box. I cant even get my hue to do a sunrise with different colors, or dim at a certain time of day. The options that they do have are also broken, every time I try to change the color on the "timer" routines, it resets immediately. So much for the premium choice..

App has been the same, but good for many years. Recently they changed the behavior for all dimmer switches to be time based which has messed up all my settings for every room. Why would you do this? I've also found that it's not very intuitive on how to move lights or switches to different rooms. App has gotten a bit bloated over the years and needs to be streamlined.
