"all 4 hue" is the most sophisticated app for Philips Hue and is now also available for Windows 10 in addition to iOS and Android. This app offers a lot more options than competing apps and, in addition to direct control of the Hue Bridge, is ideally suited for the comprehensive automation of the Hue Bridge via groups, scenes, timers, alarms and rules in combination with all available Philips Hue devices such as switches and sensors. The app also includes various spectacular lighting effects based on the Hue Entertainment interface. With a corresponding upgrade, all4hue can be used with up to 5 hue bridges.
The free trial version has no time limit and can be used, among other things, to check whether the desired features are included in the app. There are some restrictions in the trial version, which are pointed out in the appropriate place in the app. This app is available in German and English.
This app can only be used within the local network, as Philips does not allow third-party apps to access the Hue Bridge from outside the local network without contractual provisions. The development team for this app is currently in contact with Philips to clarify the contract details so that remote access can eventually be made available in the future.
