About this app

The official Philips Hue app is the most comprehensive way to organise, control and customise your Philips Hue smart lights and accessories.  
Looking for the Hue Bluetooth app? You can now use this app to control your Philips Hue smart Bluetooth lights!*  

Organise your smart lights your way 
Whether you use just a few bulbs or have completely outfitted your home in Philips Hue, you can organise your smart lights with ease. 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 
Adjust your lights’ brightness, temperature and colour and control multiple lights across Rooms or Zones all from the Hue app – and it doesn’t matter where you are. You can use the app to control your lights wherever you have an Internet connection.   

Extraordinary light experiences  
Created by professional lighting designers, scenes transform your room in an instant. Create a unique atmosphere with the Honolulu scene, the vibrant colours of Soho and more. Browse the Hue scene gallery and tap a scene to set it – or create your own based on a photo or your favourite colour palette. 

Light recipes for your daily routines 
Use the four light recipes designed by lighting experts to support your wellbeing throughout the day. Start the day with the cool daylight of Energise to give you a morning boost, followed by the brighter Concentrate setting to help you get things done. The Read light recipe gives you the perfect shade of light in which to read your favourite book, while the dimmed golden glow of Relax helps you wind down.  

Personalise with automations 
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 customisable automations in the Hue app is effortless – and fun!   

Hands-free voice control 
Use Apple HomeKit, Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant to control your smart lights with just your voice. Simple voice commands let you turn lights on and off, dim and brighten or even change colours without you ever lifting a finger. 

Create widgets for quick control (Android) 
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.

More of a product review and a simple one: Mixed experience The app keeps getting better but it still feels limited. Overall, it's probably the best one to control the bulbs though. I've had 5 bulbs (was 6 but one got damaged) for a few years now. The bridge is worth it too. I don't like having Bluetooth on so that eliminates the need. If only mine hadn't been taken when I was away from home!

I loved my hue lights until the most recent update. I have a sunrise automation set up and it is not turning my lights on. I have tried turning the automation off and on, deleting the automation and creating it again, and deleting the app and reinstalling it. The last 2 changes the automation worked the next morning but then no morning after that. It is super frustrating because I have come to depend on this to help wake me up at 4:45 in the morning. This was one of the reason for getting these

At first, I loved this app. It's cool and convenient and easy to get the lighing that you want. BUT the app is extremely finicky and unstable especially for the cost of the products. This app loses connection to the bridge, lights, and remote on a regular basis. The worst part yet is that half of the times it does this, it deletes all of my saved lighting scenes. As a Twitch streamer who relies heavily on their lighting, this fatal flaw is sadly causing me to reconsider my options.
