Control soon only via the Hue app

If you don’t have a bridge yet and have been relying on the Philips Hue Bluetooth App, there is interesting news for you.

A small thanks goes to Hueblog reader Sebastian, because I had actually not yet discovered this new feature in the Hue app. And I can imagine that Philips Hue hasn’t planned for this long-awaited feature to be accessible yet either.

Earlier this week I was able to report that Hue Essentials is now also available for download in the Mac App Store. However, the new app wouldn’t start on our Macs – and we had no idea why.
