Hueblog: Philips Hue App with improved HomeKit connectivity

Philips Hue App with improved HomeKit connectivity

With the update to version 3.33, the Hue app for iPhone and iPad offers an improved HomeKit connection.

HomeKit, which is at home in the Apple cosmos, is a fine thing. Not only can all devices be controlled via Siri, but also complex automations can be created. They also work across several manufacturers. In this regard, Apple definitely offers more possibilities than Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant.

The update of the Hue app (App Store link) released this morning contains three improvements for HomeKit integration:

  • improved synchronization with HomeKit when changes are made to the Hue app
  • fixed a HomeKit problem where names in the Home app do not match names in the Hue app
  • corrected a HomeKit problem where saving a scene in HomeKit would cause the “value is higher than maximum” error

Luckily, I haven’t been able to find any of the three problems mentioned in connection with HomeKit. How about you?
