AmbiDesk for Hue uses the Philips Hue light system to simulate an ambilight (ambient light) effect in your room or wherever you use this technology based on the content of your screen. AmbiDesk can even be controlled by a free iOS Remote to start/stop monitoring.

In AmbiDesk for Hue, everything is about points-of-interest (POI). Once you have connected to your Hue Bridge, you get list of all bulbs which can be enabled, and a POI for each bulb registered with the bridge. You can freely position the POIs on your screen to create the ambilight effect. So whether you use your ceiling lights or mount a light strip
