Missing what should be basic functionality. I like that I can set alarms and have the lights fade in, but I should also should be able to set the maximum percentage as well. When I get up in the morning, I don't want the light to go above 60 percent. Unfortunately, this app doesn't give you the option. The light always fades in to 100 percent. If the light gets that bright it will spill into the kids bedroom and wake up the 3 year old. Being able to set default maximum brightness and also setting maximum brightness for alarms should be basic functionality. As a consumer, I shouldn't have to look for 3rd party apps to get that functionality.
Overall, the app provides nothing more than basic functionality. A bit buggy, has to reconnect every time you open it. And disabled routines re-enable themselves for no apparent reason. Thankfully integrates well with IFTTT and Stringify, which allows better functionality. Agree with other reviewers, the app should be better for a product whose bulbs and lights have premium price tags. Wake up Philips, the competition is catching up quickly.
A few months ago this app would have received 4 stars. But lately (since a few weeks) I've been having connection issues with the Hue Hub on wifi. The out of home connection on 4G seems to be the most stable which in those cases is the fallback scenario. Whats going on here? Once the wifi connection issues get fixed this app will be great again. My phone is a Motorola G5S Plus with android 7.1.1.
Potential nice features not a fan of the hub, the app UI needs quite a bit of refining for my preference. Definitely this is newer tech stuff and a long time to go for maturity. At this time there is no app layout order customization. I'm going to wait on this tech for a few more years. I'd be more interested with a cellular connection option over wifi.
lousy, you cannot make light belong to more then one room. and when you do, you lose all the presets you had since the lights are removed from other rooms and the presets simply void. The app was ordered by philips from a contractor to give a basic app, problem is that its quite bad. also slow and does not recognize the bridge, so you need to close it, open again, and it works, sometimes more then twice is needed. disappointing and not intuitive
Am I the only one experiencing this... I frequently experience my Hue lights become "Unreachable"... And none of my several 'controllers' (Alexa, phone, computer, etc.) can trigger some or all of my lights when needed. It's been like this for over 2 years now with 2nd and 3rd generation bulbs (10 total) and a 2nd generation bridge.
