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.

Update: good lights, horrible app. No changes after update, still a junk app. Widgets are still trash. Who ever is making these updates and think they are good needs to be fired. I have to have individual buttons for each light. A few updates back. I could turns two lights off or just dim two lights with one button. Now it's one button per light for each function I want. Instead of simplifying the app they need to work on the idot making these updates.

I have used this app for probably six years, possibly seven. I really love my Hue setup, but these latest versions have me concerned. It states I will soon need to log in. I do not want to log in. I want a local device on my local network to access my local bridge when I push the button to connect. I need a lite non internet connected version. Devs need to understand the act of unlocking my phone is the limit of authentication I want to be involved with. I dont want another password to remember.

I didn't really have trouble with the app until the most recent update. After the update it can't connect to my lights, I would have to close the app and open it again and that helped it sometimes but then it didn't so I un-installed the app and re-installed the app thinking it would help but it's still having trouble connecting to my lights.
