Hue Camera for Philips Hue App Description

"It is most impressive when working with live video, as it does a good job of keeping up with changing action happening on screen" - Hue Camera creates an Ambilight-like effect using your Philips Hue lights and your device's built-in camera. The custom build algorithm of Hue Camera continuously analyses all individual pixels and takes hue, saturation, luminance, occurrence and many more factors into consideration to determine which specific colour is the most contributing to the overall ambiance. Your house will for example turn green when watching movies in the forest and turn blue for underwater scenes. Because Hue Camera uses the built-in camera, it's not limited to a specific device and can be used for content on televisions, Apple TV, gaming consoles, BluRay/DVD players and even things off-screen like photos and paintings. Although Hue Camera was designed to work within a wide range of situations, you can change the speed of colour transitions and the intensity of the colour to your liking.

App Reviews

  • Dumb

    By LindyJoAnn
    This is dumb. It doesn't respond to anything, just transitions the lights in a rotation
  • Doesnt work properly

    By Mg00000
    The lights have a huge delay, and sometimes it seems like its just showing random colors. Don't recommend, I would like a refund.
  • Too slow

    By Guilyerme
    It doesn’t work as well and it’s too slow.
  • Horrible

    By HoleFiller944
    If you like watching movies while pointing your phone at your TV the whole time then this is the app for you. If you stop pointing your camera at the TV it just stays one color. Waste of money and time.
  • Doesn't work quite right...

    By DncnBug
    I have to uninstall and re-download the app every time I want to use it. So inconvenient. Otherwise, it's pretty cool. Maybe I don't have it set up quite right, but each bulb is the same color; it would be cool if each bulb portrayed the color on the side of the screen it was on.
  • Not worth the money

    By avenue101
    Need to keep camera facing the tv. Good idea but bad if you need your phone.
  • Light doesnt transition

    By Danimal310
    Light just stays the same color. Waste of money and time.
  • I want to watch on the tv not the app

    By WillBe3812
    Screen should go to sleep - I don’t want to watch the app screen and the tv
  • So close but needs work

    By cheifsmackahoe
    Should be free for a variety of reasons. One being that the app does really work unless your pointing the phone at the tv. I repeat, your phone has to aim at the tv. This app should be free for this joke of a process to work.
  • Doesn't use groups/rooms. Made me dizzy

    By nuclearspike
    It pulses my lights even when on slow and after a few minutes it made me dizzy, like I'd spun in a circle for minutes. The list of lights is not ordered or grouped. I have more than 50. It would be good to be able to disable an entire room at once or at least sort them alphabetically.
