Really simple to use, great for setup and controls.

The app and whole hue integration system and accessories have been great. Purchased and have setup half the house with the other half to go as well as some more accent lighting in the future. However the accessory limit will likely require a 2nd hub eventually where the app begins to fall short. It would be a perfect 5 if you could control multiple hubs at once without changing. HomeKit integration can get around this but honestly prefer this app over the home app. If being able to control all lights in a multi hub setup could be added it would honestly be as close to perfect as possible.

Widgets broken in Today View

Overall the Hue system is great, and the new version of the app is pretty good. I’ve tried a lot of the alternatives and have found the Hue app better. However, the *latest* update has broken the way widgets display in the Today View - they appear in random order - making the Hue control panel very awkward to use. The app would benefit from having more than two layers of grouping - light in room - to accomodate lights with multiple globes etc. You might want to control at globe level, light level or room level. The widget control panel problem knocks off a couple of stars - because it’s the interface I use most to control our lights - but otherwise I’d give it 5 stars, because the app is solid and the lights are excellent.

Hi Greg, thanks so much for the feedback. We're looking into the bug that's doing this to the widgets and hope to find a solution soon. Keep an eye out for updates.

I love my Hue lights, but the Wishlist is still long.

Motion sensors really need to be more useful than they are in a truly automated home.

For example, I have some lights illuminating a dark hallway. They're set to different colours, and minimum brightness just to counter the blackness with a little atmosphere. What I want is for the motion sensor to set a white scene when I walk past, and then return them to their previous dim colour setting, rather than just switching them off as the only option.

Returning the lights to their previous state is so much more flexible. Motion sensors mimic dumb sensor behaviour. These are computers we're dealing with here. They can be smarter than that.

Being able to revert to a previous scene once the motion timer expires, would allow you to layer motion over whatever other routines you have in place. It would elevate the device to the point where I'd put them everywhere, just to make the place more interactive and responsive, without screwing up existing automation.

Thanks for your consideration.
