WinHue is an application that allow a user to control the Philips Hue Lighting System from it's computer. I'm the only developer on it and do it in my spare time. That mean that there might be some long delays between updates.

Hue is a trademark of Philips. The Windows Logo is a trademark of Microsoft.

    I haven't had too much time to play with this app but I am happy to announce that it is exactly what it says it is. My bridge connected flawlessly and my lights turned on in seconds. I am so happy I found this. Thanks to the author for writing this program, my wife refuses to upgrade her flip-phone and complains about her inability to turn the lights on and off. Not any more. Thank you for saving my ears and my defeated spirit(just kidding she's really not like that). I gave all 5's on the optional part even though I've never had to get support. You already said you'd get to it when you can and that's fine by me. Just happy I can control my lights with my laptop now!
