THE best app I’ve ever downloaded

In my house I have 12 smart lights (between bulbs, accent lights and strips) from both Philips and Lifx and I’ve been looking for a free app that would allow me to play with both systems at the same time. THIS IS IT!!!! The only thing I had to do was pressing the button on top of the Philips Hue bridge. I was really expecting some back and forth between this app and Philips and Lifx apps. But no. The minute I opened the app, everything was connected. Boom! It even imported the names I gave to the lights like “Bedside light left side” or “countertop strip” and room names. Simply fantastic!

The best part was still to come: the included free effects are amazing. It’s such a well made app that I will purchase a few extra effects just to support them! Big THANK YOU to the developer(s).

You must pay for every single feature

I follow this project since the beginning. The developer made a good job but is now past the greedy limit for me.
I understand that monetizing the app is inevitable, but here you need to pay to add things to favorite. There are free alternatives that are getting as good as this app
