- Create, edit and delete rules with a lot of different conditions and actions. Use rules to program hue tap, dimmer, presence sensor, ambient light sensor and temperature sensor.

Requirements:

- This app requires some permissions in order to detect incoming calls and sms (for device events). Details about the permissions can be found in the FAQ section in the app.

Limitations:
- This app can only be used within the local network, because Philips does not allow remote access via Internet to the hue bridge for third party apps without a special contract. The development team of this app is in contact with Philips to clarify the contract details and provide the remote access feature until end of 2018.
