iConnectHue brings out the best of your Philips Hue lights! Organize your Hue Lamps: Assemble groups for rooms, zones or special purposes. Light up your party, dinner or bedroom in your favorite colors and moods with easy to use drag & drop-functions! Want to go to bed? Just start the integrated sleep timer and close your eyes. Intelligent timers only act when you need them.

Have a Hue compatible switch (Tap, Dimmer, Smart Button, FoH, Wall Switch Module) or Motion Sensor and want more flexibility? Colors, scenes, sleep timers, reminders, brightness, blinking, on/off and even color animations (optional)! Motion sensors can either turned off or return to the last state of inactivity.

Philips made it "app of the month" 5 times: iConnectHue was made to be powerful, but still solves complex tasks with ease. This all comes in a nice clean package. It's possibly the only app you will need for your Philips Hue Lights!

What's new in version 4.6.4
4.6.4

• Please note: If you upgrade your Hue bridge firmware, you can't use the Gradient Lightstrip's individual segments, iConnectHue detects and informs now about this and will switch back to single color mode (we will issue an update once Philips lets 3rd parties use the new API for the strip)
• Solved some small problems


Good news, everyone: iConnectHue now supports the brand new Hue Wall Switch module!

Beginning now you can set up you Wall Switch Module with all of iConnectHue's capabilities. Since we wished the module to be capable to do more we taught it more:

• You can set up up to 5 instead of 3 slots
• You toggle on/off even if there is another alternation already set up (the group-on-state alternation currently must be set up last!)
• In case of a rocker switch, you can decide by yourself whether to toggle off between steps or at end
• Many functions can be set up even quicker by the wizard
• It uses less resources when set up with iConnectHue

Because of the module we reworked our switch editor in many places significantly, so you can toggle on/off and have other actions at the same time on the same switch. Since we thought this might be handy also for other single button switches, we offer this functionality for the Hue Smart Button and Lutron Aurora as well.

We invested a lot of effort and time into these new functions, therefore we offer them in the "2021 Upgrade", which combines current and other small improvements of this year into one handy package. As always, these new functions are included for our members as well as for our recent customers who bought iConnectHue recently - back to 1st of March 2021. For clearer overview, we renamed the existing "Level 1 Upgrade" to "2020 Upgrade".

Pro Improvements

Our Pro members can now easily change the group brightness when in group overview.

Additional improvements

• With the 2021 Upgrade, sleep timers on switches can now be restarted (only those that turn off at end; Edit existing actions to take the changes over)
• You can now opt to increase or decrease relative brightness when adding this action - which should help you with rotated Friends-of-Hue switches
• Improvements in remote access setup
• Simplified setup of Group-On-Alternations
• We improved several details

•• Please give us a positive App Store rating, if you like these changes or want to support iConnectHue. Thank you! ••

If you run into any issues, don’t hesitate, contact us from within the app. You will surely get support! Need a quick check for a question? We also have an elaborate FAQ: https://iconnecthue.com/f-a-q/

4.5.0

We start into a new year full of hopes. You don't need a special hope for new devices for us though - we now support the new Hue Dimmer V2, as the first 3rd party Hue app, right in time when it's starting to market! Our graphician did her best and created a nice new graphic of it, and we for ourselves teached the wizard new tricks, so you can set it up with just a few taps and as you'd expect it from its new layout. Please note that this switch may not be available immediately in your region. Its release date is January 26 in Europe and March 2 in North America.

Note: This is the last update added to our "Upgrade Level 1", as it now received a long list of new functions. New hardware and new small features will be added to a new package. As always, as a member you don't need to care about this - it's included for you!

4.4.0

• Our new animation set "Happy new year!" brings new year's mood to your home!
• Spice up your christmas: "More Christmas!" animation package and "Christmas magic" scene package
• Region specific plug symbols; Is your symbol incorrect/missing? Let us know!
• Solved a problem where transition times would not be stored for certain timers - just set them to the value you want and save
Our verdict: Good
  • + iConnectHue for Philips Hue is a highly rated app (4-star).
