The easiest yet most powerful way to control your Philips Hue lights and devices with you Mac. For Day-to-Day. For Pros.

The app integrates seamlessly into the menu bar (or can stay in the Dock), from where you can easily manage and control all your lights and other devices. New rooms, zones, lights, smart plugs, motion sensors, switches and status items can be added, renamed, rearranged, customized or hidden when not needed. All these functions work with Philips Hue Bridges (no Bluetooth support yet) and Phoscon deCONZ Bridges (e.g. Conbee). You can connect to multiple bridges.

All functions at a glance:
• Beautiful and intuitive user interface, available in two modes (Studio Mode and Menu Mode)
• Create, delete or simply recall rooms/zones, lights, smart plugs, scenes, motion sensors and switches
• Dim or switch rooms and zones
• Adjust color, saturation, and brightness (depending on light type) for all your lights using multiple color pickers
• Define or change rules and configurations for motion sensors and switches
• Hide unneeded groups and devices
• Re-sort groups and devices
• Automatically syncs with the Philips Hue mobile app
• Support for global hotkeys
• Support for Shortcut App
• Multi-Bridge support: Control multiple Philips Hue Bridges or Phoscon deCONZ Bridges simultaneously
• Hybrid user interface mode: Launch the app from the menu bar (Menu Mode and Studio Mode) or from the Dock (Studio Mode) - your choice
• Suggestions for new features and bugs can be reported directly to the developer

I was an anti-Hue guy for a long time because of the price. But after getting a few bulbs and then using their app, I was sold. Everything just works. And it looks beautiful. The Hue app has every feature I'd want. But no Mac app. Then I found We Love Lights. It's the exact same feeling. It does everything you'd want it to do, and it looks beautiful. Thanks for making such a great app.

Exactly what I needed

Easy to use, quick to setup. I love being able to control my Phillips Hue bulbs from my Mac, and not have to reach for my phone while on video calls.

Only 3rd party app that WORKS!

I've tried quite a few, but this one consistently connects. Nice interface too.
