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

Have you got a Hue Tap, Hue Dimmer or Motion Sensor and want more flexibility? Colors, Presets (scenes), sleep timers, brightness, blinking, on/off and (with animation editor purchase) even color animations! The motion sensor can either turn off or return to the last state of inactivity.

Philips has made this "app of the month" 3 times: iConnectHue was made to be powerful, but still solves complex tasks with relative ease. This all comes in a nice clean package! It's possibly the only app you will need for your Philips Hue Lights!

iConnectHue is also available for the iPad: "iConnectHue HD" has even better usability thanks to the larger iPad screen.
