Please open source the app Let us take the time to build on a great boilerplate app and give the users of the system truly something great. I am invested in the Philips hue system and an established app developer. I have often thought of creating a hue app but then see that this app is close with just minor adjustments required. For example, I can set up a routine but not to select a colour at a given time? Why? This would take 5 minutes to code in based on what you have and would add tremendous benefits.Just my thoughts. Thanks
Good It's probably 3.5, its actually really good, nice scenes for rooms and simple to use. The main thing I dislike is the one bulb per room thing. Apart from that you get firmware updates and your settings are stored on the hub so anyone installing/visiting can easily get up and going. Worth getting just for that, worth trying before moving onto other apps.
Nice but not always reliable The app has a very nice interface and gives you plenty of options for controlling your lights including colour pallets, brightness control and and variety of scenes. It can also handle routines that sometimes work, including the option to turn your lights on when you come home. Additionally you can ask it to only turn your lights on after sunset, however I have never got this to work. Overall a good app that handles the basics very well, but struggles with automation.
Needs some work I like how they improved the look but as others have mention the flexibility has been lost compared to the first one. I didn't really notice the difficulty until I started adding the motion sensors. 1 light can only belong to one setup. That might have been ok until the motion sensor allows me to only choose the light setups and not individual lights without compromising other light setups. I.e I have 3 lights in a room for tv watching in 1 setup, my nightlight function I only want 1 to come on can't do it
Constant updates I have never had an app that updates as often as this one. Plus when it decides to update, you cannot delay and operate your lights. You have to wait until it installs the update. Nothing is so critical as to force you to update while you lose control of your lights. I would not buy a hue system again. There are better options on the market.
UPDATE 10/14/2016 There's been some improvement and they're heading in the right direction. The lag is still noticeable but not nearly as bad as it was in the earlier release. It seems like some of the features are starting to become more reliable. I still find it frustrating, though. FIRST REVIEW: I have enjoyed the Phillips Hue system (running seven lights) for the last year and a half. It's worked flawlessly since I set it up on the first generation app. This version, however, is incredibly b
