I greet you one last time from Greece, which is quite windy today, before I return home tomorrow. One child is asleep, the other is at the mini-club – enough time for a little article for you. Today I would like to take a first look at Hue Log, a new Mac app by developer Stefan Pettersson.
From 10 October, the app will be available in the Mac App Store for around 15 euros. But what exactly can you do with Hue Log?
“Hue Log is a native macOS app that give the user a real-time log of events in the connected Philips Hue system. See which lights change, motions detected, button presses, scenes triggered, doors opened, temperature readings and so on”, the developer from Sweden writes about his app.
More features of Hue Log
Hue Log can work with multiple bridges. It can also take a look at the rules created and what their conditions and actions depend on. Here is an overview of some more functions of Hue Log:
- Real-time log of events
- Rules (per bridge) overview, including dependencies on devices used conditions and actions
- Temperature over time; see changes over time in every room with a motion detector
- Light level over time; see changes over time in every room with a motion detector
- Device battery status overview
So far I haven't tried Hue Log myself, but I will do so when I return from holiday and before the official launch of the app on 10 October, so I can give you my own impressions.
