Huetro is the best, most feature-rich and easiest unofficial Hue app on Windows - and completely free! Use the simple setup to install all your lights and enjoy your Philips Hue even more! Use the colorwheel to set that specific color, or use the intuive picture-picker to re-live your favorite memories! Use scheduling, Cortana or NFC to automate your home or the Disco feature to get that party startin'! Arrive at a well lit home or leave without worrying about turning your lights off: geofencing can do that for you! Also support for Hue Tap. 

• Easy setup.
• Disco feature.
• Extensive lights control (inc. remote access).
• Create scenes by using pictures, current state of lights or colorpicker!
• Scheduling: turn your lights on or off on a specifc time!
• Hue Tap support.
• Create, delete or rename groups.
• Bridge: get detailed bridge information, update firmware or add new lights.
• Pin your favorite lights, groups or scenes to your start screen.
• Cortana can help you to control your lights: "Wake up, Hue!".
• NFC: just tap and voila!
• Hue API 1.4 support (scenes, rules, sensors)

• ан! Russian is now supported! - Thanks, Alexey!
• Bugfix: app gets stuck on older update while being on the timezone page.
• Ability to delete a light or sensor (tap-and-hold on a light or sensor on the lights or sensor page). The latest firmware version (1.7) is required!
• Improved localization.
• Improved setup.
• The disco feature might not be working if the latest firmware update has been installed on your Hue Bridge. I'm looking into this and hope to fix this ASAP - sorry for the inconvenience in the meantime!

• Ciao! Italiano is now supported (including Cortana!) - Thanks, Roberto!
• Bugfix: standard scenes get updated when new lights are added.
• Improved support for (multiple) Hue Taps.
• Improved localization (German).
• Improved setup.
• Delete all Hue Tap commands on the Tap page.
• Minor UI improvements / fixes.

March 15 (
• Bugfix: lights fall of the page of the scene editor.
• Bugfix: Hue Tap crash.
• Improved support for LUX lights (with scenes).
• Improved localization (Dutch, Danish and French).
• New Cortana command: "Lights, *SCENE NAME*"

March 05:
• Brand new, built from the ground up as a Universal app for WP8.1 and Windows 8.1!
• New, more polished UI that helps you do things quicker. Better support for HD devices like the Lumia 1520.
• Performance improvements.
• Geofencing!
• Create scenes based on current lighting settings!
• Hue Tap support.
• Improved scheduling (ability to edit alarms!) - Alarms on the Bridge made with Huetro 1.x will be deleted upon first launch!
• Localized! English, Dutch, German, Portugese, Danish and French are now supported and more to come with your help!
• Scenes are now stored on the Hue bridge. This improves  performance, and allows Huetro to load scenes created by other apps (without the image due to Hue-platform limitations, editing not possible - only re-naming).
• Much, much more :)!

    Exceeded my expectations. With a slick professional interface I deployed and controlled lights in less than a minute. Rich feature set, im proud to display this fine app on my windows phone.

    Glad to have this app! I love that you keep adding more features!

    Living whites are not well supported (breaks the Hue Tap) and my lights turn off randomly. It was working well for me before the universal app version.

    Awesome app! I'm glad I went on the hue website, else I wouldn't have found this out! Can you please add the feature where the lights change based on the tempo of the music playing? Thanks!

    Great Hue app. My biggest wish though is scene scheduling. It would be even better if it synced with the windows calendar to trigger scenes using keywords.

    Super fast email support! Features on par or better than the official IOS app!
