Sunn - Circadian Lighting for Philips Hue

Sunn - Circadian Lighting for Philips Hue

Zunn Labs, Inc.

Sunn is an app to help you get a better night's sleep.

The Sunn app helps improve sleep at night and alertness during the day by keeping your body clock / circadian rhythm, in sync with nature. It does this by adjusting the color and brightness of indoor lights. The Sunn app automatically adjusts your lights to match your location, time of year and time of day to provide the right light at the right time.

***IMPORTANT READ***
THIS IS NOT A BLUE LIGHT FILTER APP. The Sunn app is designed for Philips Hue and Apple HomeKit smart lights. It adjusts the color or brightness of these lights. It does not adjust the color and brightness of your iPhone or iPad screen.

(( Sunn Sync ))
Automatically sync your indoor lights with the sun to promote circadian alignment and help regulate a balanced sleep-wake cycle.

(( Sunn Dial ))
Have a unique schedule? Adjust your lights to any time of day based on your own personal wellness needs.

(( Light Travel ))
Trying to reduce jet lag? Change your lights to match the light cycle for any location in the world.

(( Seasons ))
Tired of the winter blues? Adjust your lights to your favorite time of year.

(( Moonlight Shake ))
Gently shake your phone to provide just the right amount of light to guide your way without disturbing others, preserve your night vision, and make it easier for you to fall back asleep.

(( Smart Groups ))
Seamlessly organize and customize all of your favorite smart lights into groups.

(( Quick Select ))
Use an intuitive carousel to quickly control any group from the main screen.

(( Brightness Control ))
Precisely control the brightness of any light from 1 to 100%.

THE SUNN LIGHTING EXPERIENCE
In the morning, Sunn makes your lights rise with the sun, gradually brightening and changing color to foster wakefulness and assist your body’s natural suppression of melatonin. During the day, your lights track the sun and slowly become cooler to promote alertness. As the day winds down, your lights become warmer and bring the setting sun indoors. At night, the Sunn app slowly adjusts your lights to emanate the calming glow of firelight, a biological indicator that prepares you for rest and promotes your body's nighttime production of melatonin.

iConnectHue HD for Philips Hue

iConnectHue HD for Philips Hue

Stefan Gohler

Tidy up your Hue lights: Organize them in groups, let them light up in your favorite colors, depending on where you are and how you feel. Want to go to bed? Just start up the integrated sleep timer and close your eyes. Have got Hue Tap or Dimmer, or Friends of Hue and want more flexibility? Colors, scenes, sleep timers, brightness, blinking, on/off and (with animation editor purchase) even color animations! The motion sensor can turn off or return to the last state on inactivity.
Apply colors to your group, drag & drop them, or save them as favorite.

iConnectHue is available separately for the iPhone! Search for iConnectHue!

iConnectHue was made to be powerful, but still to solves complex tasks with relative ease to use. This all comes in a nice clean package! It's possibly the only Hue app you will need.

More information on https://iconnecthue.com
Teaser: https://youtu.be/7Ve6dR8Wrzg

PLEASE NOTE: If you have any issues, consider contacting support instead of giving a negative rating - most times your issues can be solved or answered. A rating will not get your app back to work, but the support can help - simply use the integrated contact function.

Only iPad HD version:
• Scene browser lets you easily create and choose your scenes
• Portrait and landscape mode as well as multitasking support
• Groups controllable even in grid mode - drag & drop colors between groups!

Why iConnectHue?
• Full feature set - control almost every aspect of your Hues - and constant updates
• Family focus: Scene sharing, family geofencing (first one turns on the light, last one off - in app purchase), light & group order, group hiding (animation sharing only on devices with same iCloud account)
• Upload color animations to your bridge. No more empty iPhone batteries, and everybody with iConnectHue can stop them!
• Create beautiful magic scenes, which can be used in every group
• Drag & drop colors from one light to another
• Everything non-music related happens on your bridge - iPad can be turned off!
• Multiply the possibilities of your Switches and Motion sensor! iConnectHue offers you more flexibility than any other app one the market (details on feature page of iconnecthue.com)
• Group colors can be stored as a scene, light colors as a favorite
• Access your lights and timers when not at home
• Create timers with colors and scenes, each day or certain days, with or without random offset, at sunrise or sunset time
• Create the iOS widget you want! Add scenes, switches, a shortcut to the sleep timer, light states and dimmers
• Instant timers: Darken lights when you go to bed, let your lights remind you (blink), transition
• Include your Living Colors / Living whites and 3rd party lights into your Hue system - iConnectHue can find most of them via Touchlink!
• Find new lights, new devices, add lights from other bridges, update your bridge and lights firmware
• Integrated help and FAQ make it easy to understand the usage and to solve problems (if not, just send a feedback)
• Supports every Philips Hue hardware and most if not all 3rd party lights

To allow further development, additional modules are available via in-app-purchase:
• Automation turns off lights when the first arrives and the last left
• Discotainment - sync your lights to music with Hue Entertainment and make your home a Disco
• Animation Upgrade for unlimited own animations, upload to switches, use them on your Apple Watch, widget & timers
• REAL multi bridge support - control multiple bridges with just one app, without switching between them
• Additional animation and Magic Scene packages
• All in app purchases shared with iPad version, if same iTunes and iCloud account used

This all comes in a nice clean package, that is easy to use! This is possibly the only Hue app you will need.

Requires a Hue bridge!

Ambieye for Philips Hue

Ambieye for Philips Hue

Dmitry Sadakov

Ambieye is an iOS app to control your Philip Hue lights.

With over a thousand users for the Chrome Store extension -- now an app!

Home automation was never faster. Choose a dynamic scene, dim the lights, browse 3 million colors from colourlovers.com, or chose 16k colors for your finger, all from the comfort of your phone.

Features:

• 10+ dynamic light scenes, including: Romantic Red, Disco, Christmas, New Years fireworks, Police lights!
• Single-click virtual light switch for quick on/off of the selected group.
• Auto bridge discovery & manual bridge IP entry.
• Office & warm lights presets — Kelvin degrees, Fluorescent lights.
• 16k full color spectrum selection via two color wheels.
• Select to control groups of lights, or individual lights.
• Access to previously used Meethue.com scenes.
• 3 Million palettes from colourlovers!

Setup:

0. You will need the Philips Hue physical hardware: the bridge and bulbs.
1. After installing Ambieye it will try to find your bulbs via meethue.com or ask you for the Bridge IP.
2. When the bridge is found, you see the "press the link button" message - press the middle button on the white bridge to authenticate the app.
3. Control your lights from any within the same Wifi network.

No further setup necessary. The application dims all the lights on and off with a single mouse click, the dynamic scenes work as long as the app is open.

About Philip Hue lights:

To use this app you would have to buy and setup the Philips Hue starter kit. The Hue lights are digitally controlled lights using WiFi and Zigbee protocols. Available here: http://bit.ly/lightswitchhue

For updates, bugs and ideas, please contact [email protected], http://sadakov.com, or on tweeter at @cdima. I would love to hear feedback and your ideas!

A free version of the original Lightswitch for Chrome is available here: http://bit.ly/huelights

Thanks for the contribution to home automation and your time!

Simple Switch - for Philips Hue and Thermodo

Simple Switch - for Philips Hue and Thermodo

Eric Marschner

Simple Switch is a simple app to control a single group of Philips Hue lights from your iOS device or your Apple Watch.

The interface is really... simple. A large toggle switch to turn the lights on and off. A vertical slider to control the brightness. A popover to allow the user to select from a few pleasing colors.

Do you need a way for visitors (babysitters, grandparents, friends) to control your Philips Hue lights without giving them your personal iOS device? If you have an older iOS device available, install Simple Switch on it and leave it for your guests to use.

Simple Switch also has support for the Thermodo and can display the temperature if the user has a Thermodo. (see http://thermodo.com)
