Only a few days after the major update to version 4.14, developer Stefan Göhler delivers the next update for his app iConnectHue. Version 4.15 is released shortly before Christmas, and not without reason: It contains animations for the new Philips Hue Festavia. The string light is probably already hanging on the Christmas tree of one or the other of you.
To control my Hue lights, I prefer to use the official app from Philips Hue. To configure accessories, I have so far resorted to iConnectHue (App Store link). With the latest update to version 4.14, Stefan Göhler’s app offers numerous new functions around the topic of colours – and thus also becomes really interesting for controlling lamps.
Before we all say goodbye to the weekend, I have a rather exciting Community Question of the Week for you. This is what one of my readers asked in the community section: Currently I can’t find an approach to triggering automation by pressing a button on a Hue tap dial switch.
iConnectHue (App Store-Link) is one of the most popular places to go from the Apple App Store when it comes to controlling and configuring Philips Hue. The developer Stefan Göhler always delivers new updates and functions – next he will take care of the gradient control. Until now, you could only use magic scenes in iConnectHue to make the Philips Hue Gradient bulbs shine in multiple colours.
When it comes to configuring one or more Hue systems, iConnectHue for iPhone and iPad is one of the best recommendations the App Store has to offer. The app has definitely earned its price of 5.99 euros as well as the annual upgrade packages or alternatively the membership subscription. Version 4.13 of iConnectHue for iPhone and iPad has been available in the App Store since yesterday.
That was fast: Last week Philips Hue released the new Hue Tap Dial switch, you could already read my impressions. Now the popular iConnectHue app also offers full support for the new switch. Before we get into the details, one small thing first: Existing customers might not get the update around the Hue Tap Dial Switch for free.
After several months of work, Stefan Göhler releases version 4.11 of his popular iConnectHue application (App Store link) for iPhone and iPad this afternoon. Included are 700 individual changes and, of course, numerous new functions. The update is worthwhile especially for users with many rooms, zones and perhaps even several bridges.
Just under a fortnight ago, Philips Hue announced that two new effects would be making their way into the Hue app by the end of March: A candle flicker and a fireplace effect. These two effects are available more quickly with the popular iConnectHue app. The developer Stefan Göhler is providing a corresponding update with immediate effect.
After Philips Hue introduced numerous new light bulbs last week, some of you may be facing a very simple question: What is the best way to replace an existing light bulb with a newly purchased lamp? In this article, I’ll tell you the best way to do that. But first, let’s take a look at two examples that I consider to be very realistic in everyday life.
In addition to the criticism around the widgets, one thing can be read again and again in reviews and comments around the new Philips Hue app: users would like to see the timer function back. Shortly after the launch of the new app, already more than one and a half months ago, Philips Hue promised to bring back the functionality with a future update.
