Hi all, is there is a recommended Win program to control Hue lights from a PC?

Just wondered what people use if they want to control from PC. :)

Many thanks.

Nice one, thanks @COYS and @Orcvader, never tried either apps. Very surprised Hue don't offer some sort of program for Mac and PC as I'm sure there is a demand.

Will give them a go and report. :)

I used Huetro for Hue, works pretty well.

That app is perfect, never heard of that one but gives me control over everything and it's simple to use.


Been using this for ages but it doesn't give you control over anything, you can set up an entertainment area so you can have the lights sync with the screen and turn those lights up/down on or off but it's a completely useless program compared to Huetro or Hue Dynamic.

I use Home Assistant if I want to control my lights while on the PC. It's far more advanced than the hue app, but takes a bit of time to setup, so if it's only lights you're interested in, then other solutions might be more easier.
