It works well, but my location will not turn the lights off when we leave or on when we come home. I have to manually go in the app and turn them on or off. Now it is a nightmare to add bulbs Philips just keep giving me the same suggestions and nothing more. Unplug hub, clean up hub, redo all routines and nothing fixes the problems. They just keep turning on and off, home and away feature doesn't turn on or off, and they keep randomly changing colors and dimming. Should have spent the extra money and gone with samsung connect
For people having problems with the widget, try turning off power saving mode to see of it works. I was constsntly getting "not connected to hue bridge" after recently changing my Galaxy S7 to use the medium power saving profile. For those who can't change there name of the widget, try selecting your scene first and then setting the name and click save. It works perfectly for me.
Location Aware doesn't work at all, which you need for routines that turn on and off lights whether you're home or away. This app is bare bones, which leaves tou wanting more customizability. Edit: Philips updated the app to make location aware work, but it's turning the lights off while I'm home, so I have to disable it.
Missed opportunities here. This is one of the very few apps that CAN be capable of doing so much more, but it just doesn't deliver outside the basics. Come on guys! Clearly the devs are not getting the push or resources to provide us with a better app. Think about smart lights 10 years from now. What do you want it to do? Make it happen now and use it in your company's marketing. Show the world why they need smart light bulbs and why you are the best. Don't wait for someone else to do it.. because it's going to happen with or without hue bulbs.
Every update more issues, some as simple as turn on a light, hue makes it a 5 minute issue. Turns on lowest setting or defaults to a basic color. Why have colors if it's not going to remember. Update, should be better not worse.
The latest update made the responsiveness much better but I expect a faster app load time in a future update. Also one problem I encountered is that sometimes a light will say "Unreachable" on the UI even though I can turn it off and on using the UI toggle button without any problem.
- Various bug fixes and stability improvements.
- We’ve rebuild the location awareness functionality for the “Home & Away” routine to improve robustness and reliability. Please check your current “Home & Away” settings and tap save. Please contact us if you still experience issues.
