Hue-topia

3.4.0
06 June 2019

Control Philips Hue bulbs and their security features.

Overview

Hue-topia creates a world where you feel safer in your home and can enjoy lighting effects from cosy to practical. It gives you manual control over your bulbs and makes it easy to schedule them for when you're not around. Version 3 has an improved UI, better status bar menu, custom colour picker and enables the Hue bulbs 'whites/colour temperature' mode. Free 30-day trial.

  • Manual control over each bulb and groups of bulbs; control groups / rooms with a single touch and manage your rooms / locations
  • Appear to be at home even when you're not by scheduling your lights to switch on and off, or up and down
  • The scheduled times will continue to work when your computer isn't on or isn't in the house.
  • Scheduled times can be slightly randomised so they don't look as if they're on a timer.
  • 'False dawn' and 'False dusk', which can be scheduled or started manually for lamps or groups
  • Detects your bridge - just switch everything on and go (You'll be prompted to press the button on your bridge the first time you start Hue-topia)
  • v3 has an enhanced status bar giving you good visual indication, some control and quick access to your presets
  • Makes your lamps 'scriptable' using Applescript
  • Easily design and run other effects using a drag-and-drop effects designer

What's new in Hue-topia

Version 3.4.0:
  • Improvements to Applescript functionality. Should be more responsive and reliable.
  • Application is Notarized by Apple as from version 3.4.0

I'd like to add that v3 was still in beta at 3.0.5 when this review was written, and there has been much work done in the point releases since. I do believe it's very stable now, I've not had a report of this kind of problem for a while, and would be keen to hear via the proper channels if anyone experiences a crash or any other problem.

The best way to control your Hue lights from your laptop. Easy to use, good features. And the developer is very responsive.

Installed it, configured some presets and stuff, realized it used over 2.5 BG(!) of RAM and slowed my MacPro down.

Thank you Dan and others who reported the memory leak. 1.6.4 fixes the problem and should have a small and stable footprint.

Great app, works as it should. If you have a lot of apps, its possible, that the window with the overview is bigger than the screen of my MacBook Air.

Thank you for your review. If you have many bulbs, you can improve things a bit by going to Preferences > General > Allow strips to be folded. You can now double-click the strips that you don't use so often, and they'll fold giving you a bit more room (a click on the folded ones expands them again). It's not ideal if you have very many bulbs but helps.
