What is IConnectHue?

IConnectHue is an IPhone and IOS app for Philips Hue lights that lets do do more with your Philips Hue bulbs when compared to the standard Philips Hue App. The app has been around 4.5 years and keeps getting updated — so it should keep working long into the future.

What can IConnectHue Do? 

IConnectHue can help you control almost any part of your Philips Hue lighting. One way to think about it as the standard Philips Hue App, with a lot more features. We’ve outlined a few of the better features IConnectHue can do in this section and down below.

For a complete list of what IConnectHue can do (because there is so much, more then I can type here) check out  https://iconnecthue.com/features/.

Grouping Lights, Changing Color, and Timers 

IConnectHue allows you to change the color of the lights, group lights, and set timers with more possibilities and more granularity than with the traditional Hue App. 

The app comes with multiple color animations, with the ability to create your own and let them be played with your Dimmer and Tap devices. The color and grouping options are very granular — giving you the ability to set sunrise/sunset timers, control by group of lights, 

Integration With The Philips Hue Dimmer and Tap

IConnectHue can sync with your Philips Hue Dimmer and tap in your home and set them to do what you want to do. The app allows you to setup what you want each button on each device to do. 

If you have multiple different Philips Hue Dimmers and Taps around your house you will be able to set all of them up to work flawlessly with each other. For example, you can add multiple features for every button that you do use. If you use a lot of these this is an easy way to make everything seamless.

Control Via Apple Watch

Although we already have a post on it: Apple Watch and Philips Hue, you can use the IConnectHue app to control your Hue Lights if you have an Apple Watch. This lets you control your lights via your voice and watch instead of having to have switches everywhere or carry your phone with you all over your house.

What Devices Can the IConnectHue Work With?

In addition to working with Hue Lights, it works with the Hue Dimmer, Hue Tap, and the Hue Motion Sensor. It also works with a Variety of Hue lights including All the Hue Bulbs, Hue Lightstrip, Hue Beyond, Hue Being, Hue Fair, and Hue Go.

IConnectHue also works with third party apps and products including Ikea’s Tradfri and GE Link (for a full list check out their site, link is below in the last section).

Summing it All Up

IConnectHue is a great app. However one of the downsides is that it currently only works with IOS/Mac (This is a common theme with Apps for the Philips Hue) — so if you’re using Android you won’t be able to use the app.

What the IConnectHue app is really good at is bringing all Philips Hue lights and devices in your home to be super connected and work seamlessly together. This app is like the original Philips Hue app, but with many more addition features, granularity, and possibilities. If you are serious about having a great Philips Hue setup in your smart home this is something that you should pick up.
