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)

• 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 :)!

    This is what happens when a 3rd party Windows app exceeds the original Android and iPhone versions. Couldn't be happier.

    This app works great. Happy I can use my window phone with my Philips Hue. Easy to set up. I have yet to in counter any problems. 1/13/15 Still no problems. I now got 8.1 and its even better. I can't tell Cortana to turn my lights on or off.
