    Finally, a Hue App to write about!

    I’ve been a sucker for Philips since the invention of the CD. I’ve had every Hue product and every version thereof, aside from the flood lights. While sadly at the cost of my paycheck, it’s been nice to watch Hue evolve over the years, that’s goes for the tie into 3rd party cloud APIs (Echo/Alexa has been a ride) as well, but the Philips App serious was lacking, frustrating to use and just became mundane. I actually got so sick of it I’d write my own software to control the lights (gg on the API Philips). So yeah, if you haven’t downloaded version 3 of this app, it’s pretty kick a**, finally you can move things around, before you had to delete everything and add them back in a specific order, trying to color match was a nightmare, and so many other issues the previous apps had, this resolves! So for now, it’s hats off to Philips, thank you and please keep making improvements on your hardware and software, you’ve certainly won me back with this one. Cheers, ~T

    Finally! Power On Behavior Settings!

    I’ve been using Hue in my home for almost two years now. My biggest issue with the system is how the lights would all turn on bright white after a power outage or if lights connected to a light switch would reset to the default white if someone turned it off from the wall switch. Now with this update, my largest gripe has been resolved! I will say that the firmware update required for this feature took longer on some bulbs than others. Most of my bulbs received the update within 30 minutes or so. But I had a handful that took over day, almost two days! They did eventually update and now all bulbs are on the latest firmware. The next thing I am waiting for is the ability to use Hue Entertainment with my AppleTV so that I can sync my lights to what’s on the screen. Hopefully, that comes sooner than later. Other areas of improvement would be to the routines. It would be nice if I could set a routine to turn on at sunset but turn off at a fixed time of day without having to create two separate routines (one for on and the other for off). At the moment, the only other option that it gives you within a single routine is to have the lights turn off at sunrise if they are set to turn on at sunset.

    Updated August 4th, 2014 After some app updates and resets, the app is working better. Changed from 2 stars to 4 stars. The app is much letter than before the major update, but some UI changes are a little wonky. ——— At first, the new update ran great and I didn’t have any issues. For whatever reason now, my lights take 10-15 seconds to show any sort of change. Simply turning on and off the lights takes 20 seconds. At first I thought my gen1 bridge was dying so I replaced it. I’ve factory reset my gen2 bridge about 5 times and re set everything up so many times over. 3rd party apps like on switch control lights better and immediately. I gave this app two stars instead of one because I’ve had my Phillips hue bulbs for almost 5 years now and they’ve been really good to me. But this app has made working with these bulbs a pain and I’ve wasted soooooo much time trying to get the app to work properly. I’ve even reset my router and managed switch to default to see if it’s a network issue. It’s not. The hue app is constantly connecting and reconnecting and failing to connect over and over. Extremely frustrating. You guys can do better. You teased this app update for so long and I held off getting rid of these bulbs hoping this update would fix my issues. Please take the time to address this app and fix these bugs.

    Shortcut for alarms, please!

    I’ll start off by saying that I’ve barely touched the Hue app in several years, since I’ve been able to control everything I need with HomeKit. However, I’d recalled that Hue has this nifty way to wake you up where it slowly adjusts lighting over time, instead of a jarring sound or something, and I wanted to try using this. The only way to do this is through the Hue app itself. I got even more excited when I learned that Hue started supporting Shortcuts, hoping that I’d be able to incorporate an action to set this type of alarm in the app in my shortcut for bedtime (I work varied shifts throughout the week, waking up as early as 5 and as late as 8am). There doesn’t appear to be a way to execute this shortcut without just telling Shortcuts to open the app, like I can do with the clock app. I’m not sure if this is a limitation of available actions developers are permitted to donate, or if this is just not something that had been considered, but I would love to see this! The only other downgrade is for how confusing it is to set up new lights and assign them to rooms. I’ve set up this stuff probably 50 times (moving several times as well as adding new accessories over the years) and I never remember that you name the light and then have to back all the way out and add it to a room. It seems kind of clunky.

    Mostly cool, some holes

    I just got Hue, and for the most part, it’s super cool! The general system is amazing and really fun to play with. The app? A little funky. While some parts are fairly intuitive, I had to do a lot of poking around on my own to figure it out, which isn’t the worst thing, but I also had to do a fair amount of running back and forth from the basement to the first floor and back down because it seemed like the bulbs were syncing to the wrong room. Finally got all the bulbs assigned to the correct space, but my big frustration (and the main star-dropper) is that I cannot for the life of me log into my account through the app. I keep getting error messages—one of which said something about being connect to the wrong app (??), which I installed yesterday and controls everything just fine over WiFi. Here’s the kicker—the screen is displaying a “sign out” button, which leads me to believe I’m technically signed in. But I can’t do anything that requires sign in, because... I’m not... signed in? I’m very confused. Hue gods! Help me please!
