Hueblog: Three apps for one system: Hue, Hue Bluetooth and Hue Sync

Three apps for one system: Hue, Hue Bluetooth and Hue Sync

Everything clear or too much confusion?

Today I would like to deal with a topic that may have occupied you. At least if you use the Philips Hue Play HDMI Sync Box. The Hue Sync App is required to use it, but the entertainment area is still set up and managed via the normal Hue App.

Last year, the Philips Hue Bluetooth App was also added, allowing newcomers to control up to ten lamps via direct connection. But if they want to switch to the Bridge later on, they have to switch to the normal Philips Hue App as well, which is quite different from the Bluetooth App in terms of user interface.


In principle, I would consider it sensible to combine all Hue functions in one app. On the other hand, however, I also see the danger that the normal Hue app could be made worse if it is merged with the Bluetooth app and the Sync app.

I am curious to hear your opinion: How should Philips Hue develop its system in the future? Does it make sense to divide the individual functions into different apps? Would even an app for pure control and one for configuration of the system be a good solution? Or should Signify rather combine all functions in one app?

I am looking forward to your feedback in the comments!
