What is the Philips Hue App?

The Philips Hue app is the official app made by Philips that you can use to control your Philip Hue Lights. It is the main method of controlling your lights if you do not have a bridge and another input.

Because it is the official app it is going to work seamlessly and not have any problems like other third party apps might (it is also going to have the default features and nothing too crazy). 

What Can I Do With The App?

Although you can’t do as much as with a Philips Hue Bridge, most of the functionality is there. The basic features such as turning the lights on and off, dimming your Philips Hue Lights, and changing the color of yout lights is there.

The app allows you to organize your lights into individual rooms controlling the power, color, and brightness of different areas of your home. In addition to that you can get more granular and control only individual lights. There’s a total of 16 million different colors that you can make your bulbs.

The App comes on Android and IOS, meaning you can use it for your Android Phone, Iphone, or Ipad.

Pre-Made Light Recipes

The official Philips Hue App comes with pre made light scenes and different light settings to emulate certain environments. For example, lights to mimic a sunset or mimic a nightclub — there are more to give your home the perfect environment for an event or just to relax.

Philips Hue Scenes

The Philips Hue App comes with over 30 scenes from Philips that were selected from their light designers. These help you transform your room or house to have an awesome vibe depending on how you feel, the time of year, or something else. Check out our post on Philips Hue Scenes for more information.

Picture to Light Feature

The Philips Hue App has the ability to take a picture and mimic the colors of the picture. This can create an incredible environment or be used in an area with art to compliment the artwork.

Do I Need A Philips Hue Bridge to Use the App? 

You do not need to use a Philips Hue Bridge to be able to successfully use the App. Although a bridge will let you do a lot more with your Philips Hue Bulbs (such as connecting to accessories and more), you can still use the app to turn the lights on and off, control dim, change colors, and more.

Summing It All Up 

If you never picked up a Philips Hue Bridge you are going to be using the App a lot since this is one of the main ways to contrl them. It pays to get familiar with it to control a complex Hue Setup.

The app is a basic way to control all of your Philips Hue Lights. If you want to be able to customize them even more, I suggest you take a look at the Philips Hue Bridge.
