Release notes

Walk into your living room, play some nice music, and simply say "Set lights to Dusk". Or, place your phone near one of your wall paintings and watch the lights fade to the colors of your artwork.

Oni: Light Control allows you to set the color of the lights in your home* from your phone. Create customized Moods by adjusting the hue of each connected bulb for the rooms in your home. You can even use picture from your library as a color source. Simply say "Set lights to Purple Rain in the Bedroom" using your phone's built-in voice command feature, and watch your lights transition to match your mood. In addition to voice commands, Oni: Light Control can also trigger your Moods using inexpensive NFC tag stickers you can place on household items such as paintings or your bedroom nightstand - be creative.

With the scheduling feature, have your lights automatically set to your favorite Moods at specific times. You can also use NFC tags to put your lights to "sleep" after a certain number of minutes.

    Works well. Best hue app on windows phone that I have tried. Sometimes says a couple of lights are unreachable, yet MyHue online can reach them and wifes iPhone app (Philips) will work yet we are right next to each other on same network?? App issue or Philips issue? I don't know.

    I think the app needs mood settings for the regular light colors. Ex. Soft white, bright white, daylight.

    Ok, but only works within range of my wireless network, not over the internet.

    Great app, lacks geofencing

    This is a great app in the free form. It has encouraged me to purchase the full version

    Interface is overly complicated for simple uses cases. It works, but I think I like the few Huetro better for now.

    Edit: Not working right to adjust colors of "Friends of Hue" Iris. Auto discover broken but worked by IP address. I'd also, like everyone else, like to be able to set a light (or group)'s color more easily without creating a mood. And more (and simpler) voice commands would be nice too. Might want to take a look at what competition like SnapSwitch does in that regard... Greatly prefer this app though. Interface could be a little cleaner though.
