We love our Philips Hue lights and want you to have the best experience using yours. We Hue offers an unparalleled ALL in ONE navigation experience for your iOS device


Ease of navigation and control, ALL in ONE
You ain’t seen nothing yet. It’s all about making your experience seamless navigating your Philips Hue lights. We don’t like going back and forth in many list views. That’s why in our app we have created an all in one view where we bring all key elements together. You can easily swipe your Rooms from left to right. Flick a Room, quickly set a timer, schedule an alarm, change your Hue lights using scenes or white ambiance preset scenes and easily change the setup of a Room. We love, We Hue. Enjoy

It all starts with the Room or Group in mind. From your Room, you can control, pick a color, select scenes, quickly set white ambiance scenes, create your own, change lights or quickly set any of the routines. Use the brightness dial to adjust the atmosphere of the Room. Rooms are connected to a master grouping like “Downstairs”. Drop down the menu at the top and make your selection. Rooms are automatically filtered

The We Hue app seamlessly integrates multiple Philips Hue bridges. You wouldn’t even know when using the app you had more than one. Remove or add a new bridge at any time

Cool features: FLICK that SWITCH
You like flicking the switch “old style”. Just SWIPE the Room or Group up or down. Swiping the Room button will turn your lights ON or OFF. Switching your Philips Hue lights was never so much fun

Tap within the circle of a Room or Light to open a versatile Color Picker. Within you can change the color of your Hue lights, change color temperatures, use color favorites, create presets and have access to a collection of beautiful scenes. Preset scenes are powerful and allow you to manage and keep your own created scenes for later

WAKE UP Hue Lights
In need for comprehensive scheduling of your Hue Lights? Tap the Timer Icon to access a broad selection of Routines. Ranging from quick timers, you might want to turn off lights in your living space after a short while going to bed, to more advanced scheduling options like Wake Up allowing your bedroom to be lit with your Hue Lights gradually fading-in giving a good start to any day

We love to add that personal touch throughout our app. Tap the camera and selected a Photo from your collection. Take a picture of your living room for easy reference or add a picture of your family members to easily identify a bedroom. Enjoy

POWERFUL Master Button
A Master Button was never this powerful. Use the button to quickly turn your lights in the selected Master Grouping on or off. Press it harder and with 3D Touch you’ll get access to some quick links with which you can control all Philips Hue lights across your Home

SWIPE that Resource List
Quickly manage your Philips Hue resources. You can Add new resources, Delete existing ones, and Change their settings. Use the + symbol top-right to add a new resource to one of your Philips Hue bridges. SWIPE left or right to remove or change settings

We Hue works will all bridges square or round. We Hue requires iOS 10.0 or later and users can control Philips Hue from their iPhone

What’s New

Version 1.1.3

This app has been updated by Apple to display the Apple Watch app icon.

Routines & Timers

Ranging from Quick Timers for when you want to be triggered, to more advanced scheduling options like Wake Up allowing your bedroom to be lit with your Hue Lights gradually fading-in giving a good start to any day

Power Button Moved

Nothing more to wish for, unless

Have been using the app now for a few days and must say that I find very few reason to use any other Hue app by now. Basically it has all. I can access my rooms, lights, controls, change base settings and the color picker is great. The easy access to scenes (and love the white ambiance buttons) is also good. But … was trying to change one of my dimmers (use one of the scenes under the on button) and noticed that We Hue doesn’t allow me to change those settings with my dimmer. So an absolute 5 star if We Hue can make sure all settings can be controlled. For now 4, because I do like it !!

Developer Response ,

Bittu wasim yakub, first of all, thanks for being a We Hue user and your positive comments on We Hue. Well appreciated. You have our commitment that we will continue to work on incremental functionality. In fact what you ask for is on our short term roadmap and should be released in one of the next We Hue releases.

It in the little things and Beyond

I have been a Philips Hue fan from day 1. Didn’t make a count lately but probably have over 40 lights at the moment. What I also have is that beautiful Beyond desktop lamp. Same artwork is used in the app icon. Beyond has two light sources in it. Many apps show this as two separate bulbs. But thats not the way you control it. It is just one desktop fixture. We Hue seems to deal with this as one fixture still allowing to change the individual color of the top and bottom light source. Honestly there is more small good stuff. Other than easy navigation some of the quick links a very handy. I am thrilled about the simple 3D Touch options (more choices would even be better) and other simple things (especially handy when you have as many lights as I have) that you can quickly collapse and expand lists. Bravo especially for a first version.

Maybe not for everyone but really like the way multiple bridges are handled

Basically the app allows you to add multiple bridges. When added, and operating the app you wouldn’t even know multiple bridges are working in the background. Nice. I have 4 bridges myself. Yeah I know. It’s a bit nutty but I have been an addict ever since the day Philips brought Hue to market. Basically I use the bridges to split my home in sections like the basement, downstairs floor, everything outside around the home and upstairs. With most apps it’s impossible to manage a setup like that. With this app it exactly works as it should. Even better would be if I can create my own master groups. Maybe a next version?
