Description:

Lightbulbs gives you the power to control your HUE light bulbs directly from your Mac.

NOTE: This application requires the HUE Lightbulb system from Phillips to work.

Use either keyboard shortcuts to lower and raise brightness of your light bulbs or use the menu bar application to control them individually or as a group.

Setup is easy and very quick. Lightbulbs will scan your network and find your HUE router and you'll be good to go in seconds.

Other features coming soon:

* Manage schedules
* Set the color of each bulb

Good app for what it does - This app works well. It's an easy way to manage Hue lights from your menu bar. It says they're adding scheduling. If so, I'd like to see the ability to set times based on sunrise or sunset in your local area. That's what Indigo does for X-10 and Insteon lights and it's very useful.

Review by Bitchy-Ritchie

Good app but there are serious problems with it... - The app works as advertised so can’t find a fault with that. There is a serious memory bug in this app that caused my iMac to crash at least once a day. It took me a month to analyze the problem was happening with this program, since it seems so innocuous and would not cause an issue. The Apple store could not replicate the issue because they do not have Hue lighting in their store. Apple burned in a fresh OS and after installing the Lightbulbs program again, a day after I got it back the crashing started again. Buyer beware...

Its just a dimmer app. - The screenshots you see are all you get. Just a dim/bright on/off utility. No color control, grouping, etc.

Review by WhalterTheDustmite

dimmer app is too generous - its a really limited dimmer app, thats poorly designed and has no basic features like grouping. please make it 'sleeker' (or just less clunky) and add a ton of controls. then i'll be back, and a million others like me.

Good app, great interface, more features coming. - With the upcoming addition of color control this will be a simple and useful app. Much better than a certain other “free” app on the store. Thank you!

Wrong names - I have added 10 light bulbs to my Hue, a mixture of Hue color and only white light bulbs, this was done over the spam of a year, currently the names are all wrong and don’t match the ones I have in the hue app, instead the switches are controlling different lightbulbs that it should
