Review from Yoast Knows
Sunset-optie is een super toevoeging. Alleen jammer dat ik de lamp dan niet op een vaste tijd uit kan laten gaan (als ik niet thuis ben)
I love my lights and the entertainment is a huge step for the app, but it would be best to have the app perform as an all in one unit. Third party apps for party/disco lights is not the best. Also, after the update there has been an error regarding the controlling device not being connected to the internet, even when it is (not affecting all app features i.e turning lights on/off and changing color).
V1 was miles better. This app is garbage. The inability to group lights while moving is probably the biggest loss. Making scenes with lots of lights is super slow in comparison to the 1st gen controller. It connects fine and the timer functions are accurate, so its not like it's totally unusable. But the user nterface needs some love IMHO.
The app is a total mess, it is impossible to find anything. Why not two tabs, hardware and routines? Plus, after aeons of waiting, at last philips implement sunrise and sunset! Hardly cutting edge! The lights are all too dim, too. Edit 10 Jan 2018: More fluff, little substance.
When are we going to see a 'remember settings' option? It is very, very annoying coming home when it's dark and then being blinded by 4 Hue spots on maximum bright white light every night. For lamps this expensive, you would expect them to remember the last brightness and color...
Keep up the great work philips, it's brilliant to see the app continue to grow and get new features. No issues for me at all, limitless possibilities! Looking at the 1 star reviews the only issue you can't control is the user!
Lights work fine but the app, routines and automation don't work. Overall the wake up and Home & Away stopped working which is very annoying and not what you expect for the price tag. It will be great to arrive home and have the lights on as you advertise. The app UI needs as well a revamp as the "labs" tab is not very user friendly.
