5/5 "A 'must' if you have Philips Hue lights."
5/5 "This is the app you're looking for."
5/5 "If it wasn't for this app the Philips Hue wouldn't be worth having!"

Our light scenes have cinematic flair. Music sound tracks set the mood while our an animation engine delivers bursts of light and sound where anything can happen. Santa lands on your house! Zombies attack! You are in a spaceship battle!

Other light scenes transport you to a Lush Forest, Venice or even Deep Space to chill out in the Orion Nebula listening to superb ambient electronic music.

OnSwitch gives you smarter, clearer ways to control your smart lights. Instead of guessing what Hue's "Light Recipes" mean, our Everyday Lighting album presents gorgeous photos of antique and halogen bulbs or a skylight so it's clear what kind of light you are going to get. Our fluorescent tube even flickers on like the real thing!

Want Color? Other apps make you drag a pin around a color wheel. OnSwitch makes it easy with curated Pastels and Accent colors. Warm and Cool color flows. And "Color Splat!" our exclusive color discovery feature that's always fun and a surprise.

Wake up with a beautiful sunrise and your favorite music! Go to sleep with a sunset, optimized for better sleep.

Easily create and manage groups of bulbs. Control each group independently. OnSwitch manages groups on your Philips Hue Bridge / LIFX bulbs, so it will play nicely with your other apps!

Cannot choose which lights

Cannot choose which lights i want to use. IT just Turns on all the lights. The option is there but iT does not seem to work.

Developer Response ,

Hi Johnny Drama! While we strive to be the absolutely easiest and coolest app for Hue and LIFX perhaps our Groups screen is confusing.

Click the “+” icon to create a group. Select the lights you want in it. Name it and SAVE. From there you need to click the NAME of the group to select it and use it. The switch icon handles ON/OFF only but doesn’t “select it” for use.

ALSO: there is a bug with some newer LIFX lights related to groups where sometimes they will not save.

Hope this helps. Contact us at if you need more guidance. We’ll get you set up!
