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.

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

    Use this to control my lights daily, and to wakeup in a better mood. Works very well. Keep up the development!

    Good app, but it would be good when you could pop an error, when the bulbs aren't reachable instead of just acting as if everything with red fine.

    Not too bad. Much better now that Cortana voice integration works! Fun to set up fanciful light recipe names and have her say them back :)

    Good app, but doesn't correctly update the colors on a lightsrrip or a bloom lamp. The ios official app handles both well.

    Good. But wish I didn't have to create a mood every time I changed the color

    It does everything it says. NFC works well despite the limitations of the OS that require a prompt everytime and the phone to be unlocked. Navigation is a little clunky sometimes but you get around easy enough. Only major complaint is price, but if you don't need the NFC, voice or pinning to home screen it is free. So I guess not a bad deal. Still I would feel 5 stars at 1.99 but you gotta make a living.
