iConnectHue for Philips Hue

Stefan Gohler
iConnectHue will bring 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 up 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) or Motion Sensor and want more flexibility? Colors, scenes, sleep timers, reminders, brightness, blinking, on/off and even color animations (optional)! The motion sensor can either turn 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!

Hue Bridge required!

Terms: https://iconnecthue.com/terms/eula_en.pdf

What's new in version 4.1.3
• Fixed an issue where Pro shared users couldn't get past the first bridge
• Improves accessibility
• Improved stability
• Bridge search improvements
• Support for new Ikea, Innr, Müller lights
• Fixed that some sensors couldn't be disabled with a timeframe (workaround of bridge limitation)
• Several other small fixes and improvements

Exclusive longpress

You can now enable Hue Dimmer, Smart Button and Lutron Aurora to handle your long press actions exclusively - so that on long press, the short press actions aren't activated. Just go to the long press actions and activate the long press to be exclusively.

Light migration wizard (Pro)

Have an old light you'd like to replace with a new one, but it's complicated?
The wizard can transfer the old light's settings for all your groups, scenes, widget, name and and startup mode settings, as well as timers. Simply go to the lights, and press the wizard button on the top left to start the process.
If you migrate from an old light with limited colors, iConnectHue will recalculate your scenes so the new lights have the same colors!

Scene cleanup

Are you at your bridge scenes limit?
In your bridge settings you can now clean up scenes to make space of this precious resource. Tick the type of scenes you’d like to clean up and let it run. The resources page now also lists available scenes.

Widget entry renaming

You can now name your widget items the way you want. Long press a name in the table below your items and name it. Deleting the name returns to the automatically generated name.
Make your spacers a headline to sort your widget - they can be named as well and become a headline once named.
If you have Pro and hence the Widget available on your watch, the names will be there as well.

Multiple daylight timers per group

If you want to split sunrise and sunset actions for week and weekends, or want to switch between multiple settings by enabling/disabling them, you can now do so. Each group now allows for multiple daylight timers.
(requires an up to date bridge firmware)

Random scene shake

Shake in your scene, Magic Scene or animation view to activate a random scene!
Also: Once you've activated a Magic Scene, tap on the icon to randomize it.

Several other improvements
We've made several other improvements as well. Here they are:

• More accurate drag & drop colors between old and new lights
• The Celsius/Fahrenheit setting in iOS is now used (You can change it under iOS' Settings->General->Language and Region)
• Added support for new Immax and Innr lights
• More Hue lights recognized (Your icon is still missing? Write us and name the light!)
• Disabling things now means to swipe right - on devices and timers you now need to swipe right to reveal "disable", fully swipe right to quickly en/disable things
• Timers usually take less resources
• Solved an issue with fading randomized timers (please delete these and set them up again)

As always we have improved the app in several details. But why explain something that you'll likely never stumble upon again from now on? We hope you enjoy this new release of iConnectHue! If you find anything suspicious, let us know!
