Advanced Hue Dimmer and Hue Tap Programming

Advanced Hue Dimmer and Hue Tap Programming

Did you know that your Philips Hue dimmer switches, and Philips Hue Tap devices can do so much more than what the official Philips Hue app offers? hueDynamic offers many advanced actions that are just not possible with other apps, allowing you to break free from your computer and mobile and make your smart home more “guest friendly!“.

No need to mess around with rules, memories and the Hue API – just the easy to use hueDynamic device configuration interface. Just tap the button on the graphic of the device and assign an action to the button event of your choice.

You can even control multiple groups of lights from one Hue Dimmer or Tap device! No other Windows Hue app provides this functionality.

hueDynamic provides many advanced options for your Hue Dimmer and Tap. Make the best use of your Hue devices.

Assign Multiple Actions per Button

The Hue Dimmer switch actually supports 4 different actions for each button.

  • Press
  • Hold
  • Release Short
  • Release Long

This means you can make your Hue Dimmer so much more useful. hueDynamic allows you to access each of these button events and assign any of its advanced actions, e.g. a short press to turn your lights on to the last state and a long hold of the same button to activate a scene or ambience.

Don’t waste two buttons on brightness control when hueDynamic lets you cycle through different brightness levels with one button, allowing you to use the free button any anything else you wish!

Control Multiple Rooms or Groups

hueDynamic allows you to control multiple groups of lights, or rooms, from one Hue Dimmer or Hue Tap Device. For example, have a button on your Hue Tap device control your ambient lights, and another to toggle the power for the ceiling lights.

Ambience Cycle Button

Assign a button on your Hue Tap or Dimmer to effortlessly cycle through your favourite scenes or ambience, no app required. We like having this set on the Hue Dimmer’s On button hold event, meaning that when you hold down on the on button, the scenes are cycled through. When you reach the one you like, just let go of the button. Easy!

Bedtime Fade with One Button Press

Ever wanted to have your lights fade off over a period of minutes, or even 30 seconds? With hueDynamic, you can program a button on your Hue Tap or Dimmer to do just that. Choose any fade duration up to 1 hour and any group of lights, then just press the assigned button on your device and forget about it! This is great for when you leave the living areas of your house before bed, and will suit a lot of people better than a schedule at a fixed time.

Initiate a long fade to off with one button press on your Hue Dimmer or Tap. Choose any time from 100ms up to 1 hour!

Easy Access To All Your Hue Devices
